Maserati to produce the Levante SUV next year image

The upcoming SUV signed by Maserati, the Levante, is said to be hitting the production line in 2015, as the model will be assembled in the Mirafiori plant, near Turin, Italy.

Maserati has already produced some interesting new models, including the new Quattroporte generation, the Ghibli, which is the company’s first ever vehicle to get a diesel engine, the Alfieri Concept, seen in Geneva a few days ago, and others, but it seems that the lineup is about to expand as the car manufacturer will produce the Levante SUV. According to Sergio Marchionne, who has recently spoken to Reuters, the Levante will be hitting the production line next year.

The model in question will be getting the company’s own Q4 all-wheel drive system, which is already available on the new Quattroporte and on the Ghibli and it will ride on a platform which is underpinning the two sedans. As far as the engine lineup goes, the Maserati Levante will be offered with the same V6 and V8 units, found on its sedan brothers, with the most powerful one getting 523 HP. The 3.0 liter diesel will also be introduced on the USV. Additional details on the final Levante production version are limited for the moment and will probably be announced close to its debut.
