Aston Martin is getting ready to launch six new models over the next six years. The models will include a replacement to the DB9 / DBS, Vantage, Rapide as well as new models including the Lagonda and Cygnet.
The Aston Martin DB9 replacement will include a redesigned exterior, fresh interior and an updated V12 engine. Much of the VH structure alloy underpinnings will be upgraded to cut weight and improve stiffness. The next-generation DBS will get more power and a sportier chassis along with a revised interior and a more aggressive exterior. All these changes are expected to be made between 2013 and 2015.
In 2014, Aston will update the Vantage, which is being engineered alongside the DB9. The next Vantage will feature some structural changes to reduce weight. Also in 2014, Aston Martin will push its Lagonda brand. Aston is still pushing its Lagonda SUV concept, which will share its underpinnings with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
Even though the Aston Martin Rapide sedan just made its market debut, Aston is working on the next-generation model, which should arrive in 2016. Aston has ruled out a Lagonda sedan in favor of the Rapide.
