To boost its sales, Maserati is preparing an SUV that will be placed below the Levante: the Grecale.
After presentation of the MC20 supercar, Maserati is about to return to the front of the stage. And to ensure solid sales, nothing better than SUV… Or two. While the Levante accounts for the bulk of the brand’s trident sales, Maserati will soon unveil a smaller SUV: the Grecale.
The Maserati Grecale will take over the technical platform of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, and will be a little smaller than the Levante. But the photos of the camouflaged prototypes suggest a striking resemblance to the Levante, both in terms of proportions and optics.
Engine side, not much filter Maserati. But by studying the Alfa Romeo and Maserati ranges, one can draw some logical conclusions. First, the Maserati Grecale should receive the entry-level 4-cylinder 2-liter that equips the Stelvio but also the Maserati Ghibli. On the latter, he develops up to 330 hp using 48V micro-hybridization.
The more muscular version (Trofeo?) Should inherit the V6 3.0 of the MC20, the Nettuno. In the latter, he develops 630 ch : it could therefore be slightly deflated to 600 hp so as not to overshadow the star of the brand. Enough to ensure already very solid performance at this rival you Porsche Macan.
Above all, the Maserati Grecale will be offered in 100% electric version. The brand is continuing its electrification strategy, which will begin with the future Gran Turismo. We do not yet know the performance or autonomy of this electric version, but Maserati said that the system would have a architecture 800V, like the Porsche Taycan for example. What to guarantee very fast charges and good resistance to heating.
Price question, the Maserati Grecale is expected below the Levante (83,550 €) but above the Alfa Romeo Stelvio (47,500 €). An entry ticket of around € 60,000 therefore seems consistent.
No presentation date has yet been put forward by Maserati, but we should be able to discover the SUV by the end of the year. An important event for the brand, since the Grecale will have to ensure a large part of the sales of the Trident.
