Maserati’s Grecale, a new SUV that is positioned below the Levante has been teased once again. This time the Italian carmaker has handed out clearer pictures, however, still keeping the styling, and mechanical details a secret
Last year Maserati teased its new SUV that will sit below the Levante in the international market. The new SUV has been dubbed the ‘Grecale’ after the easterly wind that blows in the western Mediterranean Sea and southern France.
This time around, Maserati has given out clearer pictures of the new SUV, while keeping the exterior styling, interiors, and mechanical details under wraps.
The SUV exhibits the silhouette of its elder sibling, the Levante, and we won’t be surprised if the styling will be based on the same design language seen on the Levante as well. The pictures spill that the Grecale will have a long bonnet followed by a sloping roofline, most likely depicting an SUV-coupe-like styling.
So far, we know that the Grecale will be based on the FCA’s Giorgio platform that also underpins the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. The range-topping Grecale will be equipped with a petrol-powered V6 – most likely a version of MC20’s Nettuno 3.0-litre engine. There could also be a 2.0-litre petrol engine on offer and some variants will come with a 48-volt plug-in hybrid drivetrain. An all-electric Maserati Grecale will make a global appearance sometime next year.
Maserati confirms that the Grecale will go on sale later this year in the international markets and there is a very slim chance of the new ‘sub-Levante’ SUV to be launched in India, however, not before 2022.
