One of the big releases of this year was the Maserati Levante, the first SUV of the Italian brand. For the time has come the market with two options: the gasoline engine twin-turbo V6 3.0-liter with 350 or 430 HP, and the diesel V6 of 3.0 liters and 275 HP. But now the rumors say that it could get a version more sports that would far exceed the 500 HP of power. Just what you expect the fans more demanding.
The mechanics that you would use would be the V8 engine of 3.8 liters that we have already seen in the Maserati Quattroporte GTS. This eight-cylinder engine with two turbos reaches 530 HP and 710 Nm and would be an ideal addition to a Lift more prestacional. Although still there is nothing confirmed, Giulio Pastore, head of Maserati in Europe, has said that it is something that you are studying the mark of the trident.
The demand of SUV sports with more than 500 HP is not particularly high, and therefore will have to evaluate if it’s worth it to take it out. Done, this Maserati Levante could also carry the last name ‘GTS‘. Would considerably enhance the performance of the current, accelerating 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5.2 seconds and reaching a top speed in excess of 264 km/h.
we have Also been able to know bet-Maserati for the SUV will be limited. Of time the Lift will be the only copy, since it does not seem to enter into their plans to make a SUV coupe or not a crossover, smaller. Meanwhile the Italian brand seems to follow focused on the electrical and has already been confirmed the first model of this type. It will be the Maserati Alfieri that will be ready for 2020.
