The idea of making a high-performance SUV was unthinkable a few years ago. Nowadays it is a trend. Lamborghini started this trend with the Urus model currently enjoying the best sales ever. Somehow, McLaren did not get into this segment and focused on supercars and sports cars. On the other hand, McLaren sparked the new 2021 McLaren GTX SUV. According to multiple reports, this SUV will provide over 600 hp.
As the name implies, it will count on the powerful GT supercar. Aston Martin recently did something similar to DBX SUV. This model will become the company’s flagship car in the future, and the 2021 McLaren GTX SUV will follow the same path. In addition, Ferrari and Bugatti are made by SUVs, so McLaren is no different. This is what we know about the next model so far.
2021 McLaren GTX SUV exterior design
In terms of design, the 2021 McLaren GTX SUV will carry a well-known design language. This includes headlights with distinctive company logo headlamps. On the other hand, the profile will differ from the GT supercar. Either way, McLaren will make a unique shape, something the brand has never made.
The rear section will definitely feature a sports wing and generally expect a very sporty design. In fact, when you look at the GTX SUV, you just know that this model delivers impressive performance. Finally, McLaren will likely offer a special edition that provides great off-road capabilities.
2021 McLaren GTX SUV interior design is similar to the GT model
We don’t think this is a good idea. The new 2021 McLaren GTX SUV will use the same interior as the GT supercar. Of course, the SUV offers more seats and more space overall. This also includes more freight space. In addition, the SUV version will be more practical and should provide more high-tech functionality.
7-inch touch screen is the same, along with the center console design. In addition, the new GTX model is likely to accommodate five passengers. You can expect sport seats and power steering. Plus, the cabin will be very luxurious and exclusive.
2021 McLaren GTX SUV Engine specifications, acceleration, transmission
As we said, the sporty look matches the great performance. Upcoming 2021 McLaren GTX SUV will use a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo petrol engine. This unit can produce 600 hp and 565 lb-ft of torque. That’s 58 horses and 23 pounds more than the Aston Martin DBX. From 0 to 60 mph, the GTX SUV takes about 3.1 seconds, which is slower than the Super GT.
The maximum speed was estimated at 203 mph. The all-wheel drive setup is standard, along with a seven-speed automatic transmission. McLaren also provides adaptive air suspension, and you can expect more than a powerful off-road capability.
2021 McLaren GTX SUV and release date
So far we have seen a preview of the new 2021 McLaren GTX SUV. It’s a mysterious picture, but it’s more than enough to know it will happen. It is said, sales will start in April 2021. The price will start at around $ 200,000 or slightly higher.
