Maserati Grecale Trofeo

Maserati unveiled their new Grecale SUV last week, providing insight into the vehicle’s variety of trims and powertrain options.

The Grecale will launch with three different versions: GT, Modena and Trofeo. A fourth option, the Folgore, will launch in the future with a 100 percent electric powertrain. The variety of trims lives up to Maserati’s claim that the Grecale will be “a range within the range, the Trident brand’s fullest ever.”

The entry level model, the GT, is expected to start at $63,500. That admission fee gives consumers a four-cylinder mild hybrid engine, said to be capable of 296 horsepower. The next trim, the Modena, also boasts a four-cylinder mild hybrid engine, now beefed up to 325 horsepower. The Trofeo is the highest performing petrol model, with a 3.0-liter V6 engine boasting 523 horsepower. It is based on the Nettuno engine fitted to the automaker’s MC20 sports car.

Not much has been said about the electric Grecale Folgore. What we do know is that the 100 percent electric powertrain will feature 400 volt architecture, and is scheduled for availability sometime next year.

The exterior is defined by a low front grille and dynamic body lines defining the coupe-ish profile, accented by miscellaneous bits of carbon fiber. The rear taillights are said to be inspired by the Giugiaro 3200 GT; boomerang-shaped, fitting in with the trapezoidal line. Inside, the Grecale digitizes Masrati’s traditional clock face, while integrating a 12.3-inch central screen-- the largest used in the Maserati. Said display utilizes Maserati’s Intelligent Assistant Multimedia system for infotainment.

Exact launch dates for the Grecale models are yet to be disclosed, but stay tuned to MotorWeek for future updates.
