Ahead of the 2015 Maserati Levante SUV hitting the market in the next few years, additional details about the car have been released by Edmunds suggesting that it won’t be built in the U.S. like previously thought but will be offered with some impressive engines.
At this early stage, it’s understandable that Maserati is remaining quite on some issues but at this stage, it’s been confirmed that the 2015 Maserati Levante SUV will be available with a 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering an extremely impressive 410hp thanks largely to the two additional turbochargers.
If that isn’t enough for you then get this, the 2015 Maserati Levante will also be offered with a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 producing an insane 530hp! As a result, the 2015 Maserati Levante will clearly be a true rival to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S which currently produces 540hp from its 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine.
While Maserati still remains a novice when it comes to creating high-performance luxury SUVs, it is expected to draw upon the expertise of sister brand Jeep to help refine and develop its advanced all-wheel drive system which is shared with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Despite much of the 2015 Maserati Levante being American, it’s been confirmed that Maserati has changed its mind and will not produce the car at Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit because the demands for Jeeps is currently too strong to add another car to the production line.
