Maserati to build an SUV? image

Supercar manufacturer Maserati will take on a new segment by manufacturing the company’s first SUV.

After the rumor that Jaguar will go on the same segment too, Maserati wants to get there first and Chrysler might be that opportunity.

The new Maserati SUV could be based on the brand-new Jeep Grand Cherokee which can only mean one thing: power coming from the famous HEMI V8, somewhere around 5.0 liters.

If the new Maserati SUV will be based on the Jeep platform and powered by a HEMI V8 than the car probably won’t develop so many ponies, compared to its V6 3.0 turbo diesel “brother” which can hit the European and eventually Asian auto market.

The Maserati company could surprise us all by presenting its new SUV during an international auto show sometimes next year, but photo or no photo, one question remains: How can Maserati manufacture an SUV worthy of its badge?
