2023 McLaren SUV. Nowadays, when the entire market is taking a hit, we’re mainly hearing news of model delays planned for the 2021 season. Well, a few months into the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re expecting to hear that. On the other hand, you will also find plans for the future. What is most interesting is that companies that produce exotic cars are pestering us with SUV projects. We’ve already written about the Ferrari Purosangue SUV (read the comment here). There is also a small chance that Bugatti and Lotus will respond. The latest rumor in the line is – McLaren SUV.
However, this is not just speculation. The company released a teaser image that set fire to fans. A few years ago, we would not have imagined seeing such brands in the SUV segment. Porsche slowly launched the Cayenne, expanded its line-up with the Macan, and Lamborghini opened the doors to other automakers from the exotic sector. Ferrari didn’t waste much time and McLaren plans to jump in as well.

2023 McLaren SUV what do we know so far?
This will not be a long review as we can analyze all the parts and functions. The reason is simple: we don’t have many details. All we know comes from a teaser image. The 2023 McLaren SUV should be called the GTX. If you’re a fan, you’ll find a connection with the GT model. So we can expect the same powertrain: a 4.0 liter V8. Engineers will tune it to deliver at least 600 horsepower. The GTX will be more powerful than the Aston Martin DBX, but it still lacks 40 horsepower compared to the Urus. We are waiting for Ferrari.
SUVs don’t come that fast. This is a big project and the designers will need time to build the car. Given the only evidence we have, it’s clear McLaren is looking for an aggressive coupe body. The sloping roof doesn’t promise a lot of space in the back. Boomerang headlights are for the teaser image only. Who knows what the designers will experience over the next two seasons. The 2023 McLaren SUV SUV could arrive in late 2022, not sooner. The price is still not guessable. We can expect an exorbitant cost from the vehicle manufacturer. Rolls-Royce Cullinan is currently the most expensive SUV. Ferrari should be close to overtaking the center, for Bugatti and Lotus to launch their cars. There will also be a 2023 McLaren GTX.
So the first thing we expect from a 2023 McLaren SUV is that it’s going to be very, very expensive. This will reduce the number of buyers who can purchase the car. In addition, the company will limit production, making its SUVs more valuable. However, the development will cost a lot, so the British carmaker will have to cover costs by increasing production.
Like all other luxury car companies from the UK, we can expect a high dose of luxury. Well, Bentley and Rolls-Royce are already dominating the market with their handcrafted interiors and unique styling. For a country where there is only Land Rover as a world-famous brand, the UK has a very large number of premium car manufacturers. McLaren and Lotus are now poised to push the boundaries even further.
It would be very obvious if the engineers put the same engine in the 2023 McLaren SUV as the GT engine. So it is possible to make additional adjustments to entice more buyers to try something new, perhaps even more powerful. The Urus makes 640 horsepower, and Ferrari goes behind the small 700 horsepower. The most powerful SUV on the market is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with 707 horsepower. If you want more, step into the world of fully electric cars, as the Tesla Model X will amaze you with its performance allowing the SUV to sprint to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds.
