OmniAuto.it has shared with us their latest speculative render, this time showing a very possible look for the Maserati Levante.
FCA-owned Maserati provided a glimpse at its first ever crossover way back in 2011 with the Kubang concept but it's only now they are putting the finishing touches on the road-going version. Pre-production has already started and chances are the car's design will be very similar to this since OmniAuto.it came up with this digital interpretation using as foundation the leaked official patent sketches.
As far as the underpinnings are concerned, Maserati's high-riding model will have a lot in common with the Ghibli sedan and according to an internal sheet (see attached image) which emerged onto the web last year, it will get the following engines: 350 PS & 425 PS V6 and 560+ PS V8 gasoline units along with 250 PS, 275 PS, 340 PS diesels. All these motors will work exclusively with an all-wheel drive system.
Maserati isn't in a great financial shape these days as sales are declining, but Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne says things will take a turn for the better once the Levante will be out.
We will have to wait until January next year for the official introduction as Maserati has plans to stage the world premiere of the Levante in Detroit during the 2016 NAIAS.
