Aston Martin DBX
Although luxurious surroundings remain important, Aston Martins are all about performance — and the DBX certainly shouldn’t disappoint. Power comes from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine sourced from Mercedes-AMG that generates 542 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The DBX can sprint to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and boasts a top speed of 181 mph. Power gets managed via a 9-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system with an active center differential and a limited-slip rear differential. An air suspension system provides increased ground clearance as high as 9.25 inches to better handle rougher terrain. The DBX will roll into showrooms during the second half of 2020.
