When Maserati released the essential images of the new Levante – and said slight else about it – we wondered what it would be underneath the hood. Crossover or not, it is still a Maserati, after all. The stuffed details are now here.

Globally speaking, Maserati choice offer the Levante with three motor options. All of them are turbocharged 3.0-liter V6s, but they reorganize widely in output and even burn extraordinary types of fuel. The base model packs 350 horsepower and 368 pulsate-feet of torque for a 0-62 time of 6.0 seconds supine – the same as the base Ghibli, but four tenths slower with a bigger anatomy to move. The Levante S offers a rather formidable 430 hp and 427 lb-ft (more than the Ghibli S) for a 5.2-newer sprint. And while the diesel model has the least power, it also offers the most torque, at 275 hp and 442 lb-ft (reduce more than the oil-burning sedan) for a 6.9-other time. Whichever engine is chosen, it comes mated to an eight-briskness automatic transmission, all-wheel drive, and a minimal-slip differential.

Those output figures look like rather favorably to the Porsche Cayenne with which the Levante wishes invariably be compared. But Porsche and Maserati aren’t the merely high-end, old-world automakers that from now broken into the crossover game. So take Bentley and Jaguar, and soon so will Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Lotus, and Rolls-Royce. It’s all element of an onslaught of crossovers coming from some of Europe’s most vaunted marques. And while Maserati hasn’t gotten there primary, it hasn’t gotten there last, either. With two sedans already out and a new sports car on the way, the Levante puts the Modenese automaker in prime sentiment to grow, and grow big.
