Maserati SUV, the Super SUV?

This is the Maserati SUV you’ve been waiting for

Updated October 7, 2017

Let me start by saying believe me i’ve never been a fan of high end manufactures coming out with SUVs when they could be making better sports cars, but of course they need to make their money from all angles and maybe just maybe this one has made me a believer.  Although from now on when i hear the song that says my Maserati does 185 ill be imagining a soccer mom late to drop the kids off swerving in and out of traffic, and of course driving is    Let me start by saying believe me i’ve never been a fan of high end manufactures coming out with SUVs when they could be making better sports cars, but of course they need to make their money from all angles and maybe just maybe this one has made me a believer.  Although from now on when i hear the song that says my Maserati does 185 ill be imagining a soccer mom late to drop the kids off swerving in and out of traffic, and of course driving is believing. So having been debuted only a little over four months ago at the Frankfurt Motoshow in Detroit it has already caught plenty of eyes. If you ask me this grocery getter is luxury meets sport meets economy and then some.

Although believed to have been built out of chryslers northern plant along with the dodge Durango and one of my modest favorites the Jeep Grand Cherokee. No worries though this bad boy will be sent out with all genuine Maserati/ferrari parts from the drive train frame and suspension to even the sheet metal its wrapped up in so you can rest assure you’ll get plenty of bang for your buck…well its a little more then a buck running about 70k base and if your going to go luxury you may as well go all out with the 90 to 95 thousand dollar fully loaded edition. A surprisingly modest price for anything with the name Maserati attached to it if you ask me.

After a failed attempt in 2003 to come out with a luxury crossover as Lexus did rather easily. Maserati has aimed to expand by appealing to more rural areas that their sports cars can not handle as well as this crossover is purposed to do. Still some fear being built in detroit could due to fiat taking over chrysler may affect overseas sale dramatically and negatively not to mention its has to compete with BMWs X5 the Porsche Cayenne (best Luxury crossover in production) and the Range Rover.

The drive train will consist of a 4.5l V8 revised version of the Quattroport. this will be hooked up to a dual clutch automatic 8 speed transmission. You can expect to squeeze close to 500 horsepower out if and still be pleasantly surprised at the fuel economy. So it should be not only smooth but rather snappy. The Maserati SUV will not disappoint, that’s for sure.

Well hit or miss at least there giving it another shot. Hopefully this forces the other crossovers to push the envelope to the next level. Who knows maybe in a few years we could be looking at a “superSUV”. Wouldn’t that be interesting an all out war between the top automobile producers on the planet to create the most kick ass S.U.V. around? I think so we would probably have a lot more dads driving the kids to practice or running to grocery store.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
