The Price of the Aston Martin SUV Is Enough to Make Rich People Blush
Once a vehicle, such as the Aston Martin DBX, reaches the $100,000+ price point, dealers stop posting the price online. It’s a telltale sign of true luxury, a level of customization and design finesse that relegates traditional luxury to the category of average. The interior and exterior features of the DBX luxury crossover SUV are only outdone by the vehicle’s superior performance, and this Aston Martin SUV takes it to a level that goes above and beyond luxurious.
An overview of the Aston Martin SUV
The 2023 Aston Martin DBX has a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 in its “standard” features. This engine puts out 550 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque for a top speed of 181 mph and a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.5 seconds.
The DBX707 has twin ‘hot-V’ turbochargers that boost the DBX’s performance numbers to 697 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque for a top speed of 193 mph and a 0 to 60 mph time of 3.1 seconds. Despite the increase in power, the DBX707 is smaller and more fuel-efficient. It has a towing capacity of up to 6,000 lbs. The DBX707 is a crossover SUV that is as useful as it is luxurious.
Luxury goes beyond your average American luxury features to include heated seats in the front and back seats, quilt and perforation seat detailing, and an embossed Aston Martin headrest. The interior is adorned with “jewelry” in satin chrome, Alcantara headlining, and piano black door panels. There’s an Aston Martin Premium audio system with 14 speakers.
Aston Martin doesn’t stop with luxury materials, as it also highlights technology features with central and driver information displays equipped with Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity. The infotainment system has a satellite navigation system, and there’s no shortage of USB ports.
The price is too expensive to list
According to Aston Martin Palm Beach, the starting price of the 2023 Aston Martin DBX is $185,900. The DBX707 starts at $239,086. Pricing varies based on customization, and when you check out the Aston Martin website, you’ll understand why. There are tons of options. It’s pretty telling that you have to go to a regional dealership to get the pricing as opposed to Aston Martin’s U.S. website.
For exterior color alone, there are six color categories. To give you an idea of the number of color options there are, the black and grey color category includes 13 different colors. DBX buyers can basically get whatever color they want. The interior color options are equally complex, with buyers able to choose specific coloring for the trim inlay, carpet, steering wheel, and interior jewelry.
Once you customize your preferences on the Aston Martin configurator, it does not compute a price. Instead, you are able to submit your personalized DBX to a dealership for further discussion. It’s a move that those with the funds for an Aston Martin may appreciate, and it leaves the average-income individual in curious suspense.
Pre-owned prices put the DBX out of reach for most
For those looking for a bargain price for a used Aston Martin DBX, they’re still going to have to spend some big bucks. The Aston Martin DBX has only been around since 2020. Used DBX vehicles are, therefore not very old and still carry a high price tag of well over $100,000.
Aston Martin fans looking for an SUV model will not be disappointed with the DBX performance, and if they’ve owned an Aston Martin beforehand, they won’t be surprised by the price either. However, the average luxury car buyer is not expecting a six-figure price tag on any of their vehicles. Most upper middle-class people will shy away from a vehicle purchase like the DBX, but wealthy Aston Martin buyers know that they are getting what they pay for with the Aston Martin winged logo.
