Maserati just revealed a teaser for its brand-new SUV. The upcoming 2021 Maserati Grecale could make a huge splash in the automotive industry, once it arrives. Moreover, the manufacturer also unveiled the all-new GranTurismo variant. As for the Grecale, it is an SUV that is a Maserati-branded Alfa Romeo Stelvio. This is a good thing as Stelvio Quadrifoglio is one of the best high-performance SUVs in the market.
According to Maserati, Grecale will become the company’s flagship model in the coming future. For now, we know which platform will underpin new Grecale and all-electric powertrain is the highlight of the new SUV. Many reports are also suggesting the MC20 version with twin-turbo V6 engine.
2021 Maserati Grecale First Look
Many car experts described the new 2021 Maserati Grecale as the sub-Levante crossover. The latest spy shots are showing an SUV with the body similar to the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. No one knew it is the brand-new Grecale model. However, the Italian manufacturer provided a first official look last week. And just like its bigger sibling, Grecale also got its name after a wind. Grecale is similar to the Levante model in so many ways, including the exterior design.
Both models are using the same Giorgio platform, and both models will be produced in the same Cassino factory in Italy. However, the teaser image didn’t reveal so many details. And while it doesn’t look smaller than the other Maserati’s crossover, Italian automaker said that Grecale will be differently positioned. Whatsoever, this SUV will focus on practicality and dynamism.
No words on the powertrain details so far. However, the Italian brand did say the 2021 Maserati Grecale will offer a few different versions. That includes hybrid and all-electric variants. Moreover, even the internal-combustion engine will be provided as well. Maserati will most likely provide the famous Trofeo treatment as well.
It is a high-performance variant that will most likely get Ferrari’s 3.8-liter V8 engine. However, we are still waiting for Maserati to release further details about electric powertrain options. While we expect a lot of power, the driving range seems to be the most interesting mystery at the moment.
2021 Maserati Grecale Cabin Rumors
We are yet to find out the interior of the 2021 Maserati Grecale. While we don’t know anything about the SUV’s cabin, Maserati said a couple of things before the last week’s reveal. The company promised a higher-level autonomy level.
That means the Grecale model will most likely feature Level 3 systems. According to the Italian brand, Grecale is one of the models that will get Level 3 autonomy. That will allow hands-off operations and much more. Besides that, Grecale SUV will be full of modern equipment and high-quality materials.
Price and Release Date
The future is bright for the Italian manufacturer. Beside new 2021 Maserati Grecale, a new GranTurismo model will also become available. The price is still not available, and we can expect new Maserati’s models at some point next year. Grecale will slot below the Levante model so it will most likely compete with BMW X3 and Porsche Macan. The price will be revealed at a later date, probably by the end of the year.
