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.
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.
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.
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.
