Maserati produces a full line of two and four door models legendary for their spacious handcrafted luxury, thoroughbred performance and everyday usability. The Maserati product range includes now the brand new SUV Levante, revealed in Geneva in March 2016, available with V6 Twin-Turbo engine from 345 up to 424 hp, equipped with the All-Wheel-Drive Q4 system and air suspension standard. Levante is designed to offer outstanding on and off road performance capabilities with leading comfort, exclusive Italian style, high-tech features and exceptional all weather handling even on snow and ice. It boasts Skyhook adaptive dampers coupled with an exclusive and sophisticated adaptive air suspension system that is standard on all versions. This sophisticated suspension – double-wishbone on the front axle and multi-link on the rear, combined with Skyhook electronically controlled damping, four corner air-springs providing 5 dynamic ride levels (plus one additional park-position), plays an essential role in the car’s handling offering pure emotions in on-road conditions and superb handling in off-road environments.
Maserati’s First SUV
The Maserati display at New York Auto Show will also feature the iconic marque’s complete range, comprised of the flagship Quattroporte full size executive sport sedan, successful mid-size Ghibli sedan and range topping GranTurismo Coupe and Convertible models.
The Levante unveil will take place at the Maserati display located on level three of the New York Auto Show – Jacob Javits Center at 1:50 pm (ET) on March 23, 2016.
The Levante represents a new chapter in Maserati’s iconic history. With over one hundred years of automotive excellence behind it, Maserati is well positioned to introduce its first ever SUV that represents the house of the Trident’s core values and truly is the ‘opposite of ordinary’. A unique blend of design, exclusivity and performance in its class, the Maserati of the SUV’s – is a genuine Maserati first and foremost. Expected to shift one’s perception and ignite the senses, Levante is 100% Maserati and 100% SUV. A genuine ‘Made in Italy‘ product, the new Levante is produced at the Mirafiori plant in Turin, Italy.
It is distinguished by a sleek and sculpted exterior, typical of Maserati, thoroughbred on-road handling and solid off-road capabilities. Levante boasts state of the art vehicle dynamics, built on the Ghibli architecture, which was refined to meet the expectations of the premium SUV segment, in which Maserati will now compete for the first time.
Following the success of its global reveal in Geneva earlier this month, the all new Maserati Levante will make its way to the New York Auto Show on March 23rd for its official U.S. debut.
The U.S. market launch is planned for late summer 2016 with a starting price of $72,000 for the 345 hp (Levante) and $83,000 for the 424 hp (Levante S) model (not including destination and delivery), which will be available for order in the U.S. this April.
