2016 Maserati Levante SUV
It is good to hear that there will be a new luxury SUV to be produced which is called 2016 Maserati Levante and the production will be started in 2015. Based on rumors, the company will offer it with Kubang concept. Perhaps, you have heard that this concept started the premiere in 2011 at Frankfurt Auto Show. Some spy photographers claimed that they have caught the heavy camouflage design which is assumed as the new 2016 Maserati Levante.
2016 Maserati Levante Design
If you have a big question about why it is called as Levante, the answer is quite simple. This beautiful SUV got its name from the place in Bologna which is called Levante Via Emilia – Itali. There, lived Maserati brothers. It was announced that 2016 Maserati Levante will get shared platform with Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee but we saw nothing happened. At this time, it is issued that the car will go with its own platform which is basically the modified version of platform from Ghibli sedans and Quattroporte.
From the spy photos, we could find out that the car has similar dimension as the Ghibli mid-sized model. It does not mean that there is no difference. This new edition has wider and taller dimension than Ghibli with its current Maserati body. It is featured with grille, LED hedlights and taillights with front fender vents. When it comes to the cabin of 2016 Maserati Levante, it will be more modern and luxurious. The company will complete it with latest U Connect system, TFT gauge cluster full color and TFT touch screen full color 8.1 inches.
2016 Maserati Levante Engine
It is possible if the new engine for Levante is taken from the new Quattroprote. It means that 2016 Maserati Levante could go with V6 engine 3.0 liter and V8 gasoline engine 3.8 liter to produce 523 horsepower as the most powerful engine. We do expect to see the diesel option which should be mated with ZF eight-speed auto transmission. It is built either with four-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive system. This car has great off-road performance with more luxurious design and well performance as SUV so just in 5 seconds it could accelerate to 60 mph.

2016 Maserati Levante should come out for the market sales at the end of 2015 with the price tag that should be from $80,000 to more than $150,000.
