Aston Martin launches DBX707 – the most powerful luxury SUV from the British brand

Featuring a comprehensive suite of engine, transmission, suspension and brake upgrades, DBX707 is scheduled to be on road beginning Q2 2022

February 1, 2022: Super luxury carmaker Aston Martin has launched the new DBX707 SUV, which has been engineered with an abundance of character and compelling capabilities. The official Aston Martin statement touts DBX707 as “the ultimate SUV in every respect. Fastest. Most powerful. Best handling.”

Taking the V8 DBX’s acclaimed design, dynamics and driver-pleasing character as its starting point, DBX707 builds upwards from there. Every area of the car has been enhanced to boost performance, intensify driving pleasure and amplify its on-road presence.

Aston Martin’s engineering team has upgraded the DBX’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8. Led by Aston Martin’s Head of Powertrain Engineering, Ralph Illenberger, the DBX707’s engine now features ball bearing turbochargers and a bespoke engine calibration to liberate more power and torque. Also new to Aston Martin’s SUV is a 9-speed ‘wet clutch’ automatic transmission. Capable of managing much increased torque loadings compared with a regular torque converter automatic, this high-performance transmission allows output of the 4.0-litre V8 to be lifted to an immense 707PS and 900Nm, increases of 157PS and 200Nm over the DBX (V8). 

The adoption of the new wet clutch transmission helps with faster gear changes. The feel of the shift is more immediate and direct, which gives the driver an increased sense of control and responsiveness. Launch capability is also improved, which contributes towards the DBX707’s 0-62mph time of 3.3 seconds.

To underline DBX707’s driver-focused credentials there have also been some changes and enhancements to the Dynamic Drive modes. “Race Start” is available in GT Sport and Sport+ modes to maximise off-the-line acceleration and truly showcase enhanced performance. 

DBX707 introduces a revised lower console containing new drive mode selection switches. Now, rather than having to enter a sub-menu within the infotainment system, the driver has immediate fingertip control of key dynamic modes and setting. These include dedicated buttons for suspension mode, ESP, manual gear selection mode – which now holds manual like a sports car, rather than defaulting back to auto – and active exhaust switch, which opens the valves of new quad tailpipe sports exhaust system without needing to be in Sport drive mode.

New front-end treatment sees the DBX receive a larger front grille and all-new design of DRL complete with new air intakes and brake cooling ducts, plus a new front splitter profile. The satin chrome grille – enlarged to significantly increase cooling airflow to both the ultra-high performance V8 and new 9-speed transmission – features double vanes, the six horizontal bars now split to create more visual interest. 

Dark satin chrome window surrounds and new louvred bonnet blades coordinate perfectly with the front grille and gloss black splitter, continuing along the flanks with gloss black side sills, which now feature a deeper and more heavily sculpted profile to give the DBX707 a ground-hugging stance. DBX707 also welcomes the addition of soft-close doors.
