Initially scheduled for sometime “by the end of 2021”, Maserati has now confirmed that the Grecale SUV will officially make its debut on the November 16, with the launch taking place in Milan, Italy.

The “spyshots” provided by Maserati themselves.

The Grecale is no secret at this point – earlier this year, Maserati themselves even released “spy shots” of the car to generate hype, although still heavily camouflaged of course.

Check out the Maserati Grecale “spy shots” for yourselves here.

It’s designed to slot underneath the Levante, in Maserati’s line-up, and the spyshots show a low, sleek, and sporty crossover silhouette, featuring many of the Italian sports car maker’s iconic design touches such as the slim head and tail lights, signature front grille with the Trident emblem, and massive rear haunches.

The full, non-blurry prototype of the Grecale was shown off earlier this year when Stellantis Chairman John Elkann and CEO Carlos Tavares visited the Maserati plant in Modena, Italy.

Maserati did not reveal any technical details for the Grecale thus far, although we do know that it’ll definitely feature a hybrid powertrain at some point of its life, thanks to the brand’s electrification roadmap that was announced back in 2019.

The base model will likely feature a 2.0-litre turbocharged powertrain of some sort, perhaps even with mild-hybrid technologies. As the Grecale will share the same platform as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, we also won’t be surprised to see the 520 hp 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine make its appearance here on the performance model.

Maserati recently launched the Levante Ermenegildo Zegna Edition here in Malaysia, limited to five units only. Check it out here!

Recent rumours even suggest that the Maserati MC20‘s Nettuno 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 with 630 hp and 730 Nm of torque could be used for the high-performance Trofeo model (which has already been confirmed), but we’ll just have to wait and see.

There’s just about one and a half months to go until the debut, and we’ll most definitely hear more about the Maserati Grecale in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! Oh, and if you’re wondering about the name, “Grecale” is named after yet another “famous wind”, just like most of the brand’s modern line-up.
