Part of the strategy to revive the trident brand, Maserati has just announced the delivery date of its future crossover, the Grecale: November 16..
These days with a discounted offer on the Levante, the only SUV with the trident logo on the front grille, maserati is now preparing to introduce its second model of its kind, a small SUV positioned under the Levante – Grecale.
The new model, whose world presentation will take place in Milan, Italy, takes the name of another famous wind, in this case, blowing in the Mediterranean Sea and the south of France. A style that started inside Maserati back in 1963, with the Gran Turismo, the two-seater Mistral. This was followed by the Ghibli sedan, Bora sports coupe and Gran Tourer Khamsin.
As for the Grecale itself, it is an SUV, based on the same basis as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which also shares the Cassino assembly line in Italy. Where, moreover, the Stellantis group has already made significant investments, to focus on these and other future models.
In the final stage of development. Alfa Romeo Tonale comes out in disguise
Designated by Maserati itself as a direct rival to the Porsche Macan, the Maserati Grecale is also advertised with combustion engines, Mild Hybrid and 100% electric. The blocks that the Modena manufacturer has already guaranteed, will be 100% Maserati and will not be shared with other brands in the group, such as Alfa Romeo.
Among these should be the 3.0-liter V6 that the brand already offers in the MC20 sports coupé and which advertises a maximum power of 630 hp and a torque of 730 Nm. Since, some rumors also talk about the possibility of Grecale being able to boast of a Mild Hybrid engine, based on a four-cylinder 2.0 liter petrol engine.
Officially confirmed now is a 100% electric variant of the crossover, although with no known technical specifications.
Finally, and although its presentation is still guaranteed for this year, everything points to Maserati’s Grecale reaching the market only in 2022. Basically, still in the first half of the year.
