Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Aston Martin gave us hope that it might swerve around the SUV trend when it unveiled the lifted-coupe DBX Concept.

In addition to gaining an official name, it's gained an official form -- that of a proper SUV.

Yet, its newfound utilitarian looks still incorporate proper Aston Martin design elements.

Up front, the headlights look plucked straight from the new Vantage, and the grille is traditional Aston as well.

The back is still a mystery of wacky panels and purposefully misleading taillights.

The automaker plans to unveil the car in the fourth quarter of 2019, and in the year between now and then, it's determined to test the living heck out of the DBX.
