Maserati Grecale SUV revealed globally: Check variants and features
Italian automaker Maserati has taken the wraps off its much-anticipated Grecale SUV for the global markets. It is offered in three petrol-powered trims: GT, Modena, and Trofeo. A fourth fully-electric Folgore variant, the company's first electric SUV, will break cover next year. The company is yet to announce anything about whether Grecale will come to India or not.
Why does this story matter?
The Grecale is an important part of Maserati's revitalization plans. The SUV looks a lot similar to the larger Levante, but the influence of the MC20 doesn't go unnoticed. Maserati plans to go all-electric from 2025 onward. Its first step will be to introduce an all-electric Grecale Folgore in 2023. Moreover, every electric car from the Trident brand will go by the Folgore moniker.
The SUV has an imposing grille and boomerang-shaped taillamps
The Maserati Grecale has a sporty design with rounded body panels, a sculpted hood, an MC20-inspired low and imposing grille, projector headlights, and large air vents. It is flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, and eye-catching alloy wheels. A roof-mounted spoiler and boomerang-shaped taillights grace the rear end. The SUV is available in ten shades, including Nero Tempesta (Black) and Giallo Corse (Yellow).
Performance-oriented Trofeo is powered by a 530hp, 3.0-liter V6 engine
Maserati Grecale is available with three engine options. The entry-level GT and mid-range Modena are powered by a 2.0-liter, twin-turbo, mild-hybrid petrol motor that churns out 300hp/450Nm and 330hp/450Nm, respectively. The high-end Trofeo is fueled by a 3.0-liter, 'Nettuno' V6 that generates 530hp/620Nm. The all-electric Folgore will feature a 105.0 kWh battery pack and will produce a peak torque of 800Nm.
The four-wheeler has a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment panel
The Maserati Grecale has a luxurious 5-seater cabin featuring heated seats, 3-zone climate control, a head-up display, a large central armrest, a large storage compartment, and a wireless smartphone charger. It packs a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment panel, and an 8.8-inch touchpad for climate control. Automated emergency braking, intelligent speed assist, and adaptive cruise control ensure the passengers' safety.
Maserati Grecale: Pricing
The Maserati Grecale starts at $64,995 (around Rs. 49.43 lakh) for the base GT model, while the Modena trim is priced at $78,895 (roughly Rs. 60 lakh). The Trofeo variant is likely to cost above $80,000 (approximately Rs. 60.8 lakh).Share this timeline
