New details have emerged on the Maserati Levante, the company’s answer to the premium SUV segment, which will not be produced in the United States, in the Jeep’s Detroit plant, after all, and it seems that the model will actually be assembled in Italy. According to the guys at Edmunds.com, the upcoming Maserati Levante will not be a rebadged Jeep Grand Cherokee but the model will have a lot of things in common with the new generation of the Quattroporte or its smaller brother, the Ghibli.
The engine options are expected to be carried over from the new Quattroporte and Ghibli and they will include a 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 with 410 HP (310 kW) and 550 Nm of torque (406 lb-ft), a 3.8 liter V8 with 530 HP (390 kW) and 710 Nm of torque (542 lb-ft) and a 3.0 liter turbo diesel V6, producing 275 HP (202 kW) and 600 Nm of torque (443 lb-ft). The units will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission which will send power to the new Maserati AWD system. More details on the Levante are limited for the moment.
