Aston Martin has released another teaser of the upcoming DBX, which aims to draw a design connection between its sports cars and the SUV, most notably with the brand’s trademark grille. This comes following the debut of a prototype at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed back in July.

Aside from showing us glimpses of the DBX’s styling, the British carmaker also confirmed that a debut is slated to take place later in December. The DBX will be manufactured at the company’s new St Athan factory, which will also build the electric Lagonda models.

The DBX will reportedly be built on an all-new architecture, and be offered with a V8 and V12 powertrain, the latter said to arrive after the V8, as will a rumoured hybrid offering. Competition for the model will come in the form of the Range Rover, Porsche Cayenne, Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga.

While details are scarce for now, Aston Martin’s partnership with Mercedes-Benz will likely see the use of an AMG-sourced 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 in the DBX. The engine is already being offered for the DB11 and Vantage, with 510 PS on tap.

As earlier photos suggest, the DBX isn’t confined to operating on tarmac, with an all-wheel drive system present to ensure it has some off-road capabilities as well. This would make the DBX the first Aston Martin model to come with all-wheel drive.
