If you’ve been angling to own Maserati’s first-ever SUV, we can now give you the ballpark of how much you’ll be shelling out for it.
Maserati’s pricing the 2017 Levante base model at $72,000. It’s outfitted with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 and 8-speed automatic that’s good for 345 horsepower. That’ll take you from 0 to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds. If you want to amp it up to 424 horses you’ll need to opt for the Levante S. It’ll start at $83,000. No option pricing, yet, though. We’ll look for that with the order books open in April. (The Ghibli has a $1,250 delivery fee.)
A start/stop system for improved fuel economy and Maserati’s Q4 all-wheel drive system also both come standard.
The Levante will compete first and foremost against the Porsche Cayenne, but it’s more expensive. The basic Cayenne starts around $60,000 and goes up to the around the $77,000 mark. It’s $65,000 for the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
The 2017 Levante will get its North American debut at next week’s New York Auto Show. It’s due out later this year and Maserati reportedly is planning to roll out a hybrid version, too.
