It has been revealed in a report by Car & Driver that Maserati has an aggressive product plan in the works that will include launching three new vehicles within the next two years.

Maserati sources failed to mention the identity of the models in question, but one vehicle officially confirmed for production is the new Kubang SUV. The additional models are believed to be the new Quattroporte as well as a new baby Quattroporte.

The Kubang SUV will use the platform that underpins the Jeep Grand Cherokee and will generate its personailty from a Ferrari-built V8 engine that features direct fuel injection, stop-start technology and it will be mated with the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission system.

The new 2014 Quattroporte (pictured) has been caught by our spies on a number of occasions. It is due to adopt an updated four-door coupe body style that was pioneered by the Mercedes CLS before rivals joined the mix. Power is expected to be generated from a 4.7-liter V8 engine with 475 PS (354 kW / 469 bhp) and will it will use the same automatic transmission as the Kubang SUV. There is also talk of a hybrid also making its way to the model as well.

The most intriguing model set to join the Maserati line-up is the new baby Quattroporte. It is expected to be known as the Levante and it will be about the same size as the BMW 5-series and Audi A6 with a length of around 4.9 meters. Power will reportedly be generated by a turbocharged version of Chrysler's Pentastar V-6 and will generate at least 300 PS (221 kW / 296 hp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.

Production of the Levante is supposed to start in the final month of this year so we expect to report more details in the not-too-distant future here on WCF.
