Maserati to debut the Levante crossover in Detroit image

A new report is indicating that the new Maserati Levante will be officially presented to the public during the 2016 NAIAS, in Detroit.

There is no surprise anymore that Maserati is currently working on a Levante crossover but it seems that the model is just around the corner and that it will be officially presented to the public at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit, next January. The announcement hasn’t been made official at this time but according to a recent report, this will be debuting in Detroit and it will not be cheap at all as it will start from approximately 90,000 euros and it will go all the way up to 200,000 euros for the more expensive versions.

The Maserati Levante is believed to be based on the Ghibli and this means that it will go on sale against models such as the Jaguar F-Pace, the BMW X4, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and so on. If Maserati will be using the platform from the Quattroporte for the production of the Levante, than this might even borrow the architecture from the Jeep Grand Cherokee and it will make it larger, justifying its price. Three engine choices are expected to be added to the model in multiple stages of tune and the petrol units are expected to include the 560 HP twin turbo V8 unit, along with the 350 HP or 425 HP twin turbo V6. The diesel range is said to include the 250 HP, 275 HP and 340 HP V6s.
