Turbo and Bentley Bentayga.
As the name implies, this latest engine can produce an output of up to 707 hp (527 kW). This is an improvement from the 543 hp (405 kW) in the original DBX and the 604 hp (450kW) found in the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S, from which the DBX 707 engine originated. The bigger turbo delivers more power than ever before, delivering an impressive 520kW and 850Nm.
