Maserati will release its second SUV by 2020

Kristine Garrett | 27 October, 2017, 17:33

What exactly that will be, from the Ferrari V6 in the Levante to a hybrid or BEV, remains to be seen, but with the world showing no signs of falling out of love with SUVs it's a very sensible route for Maserati to take. Speaking to Automotive News Europe, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne said that he'd like Maserati's second SUV to be based on the Alfa Romeo Giorgio platform, which now underpins the Stelvio.

These shutdowns come on top of cuts FCA announced over the past two months for the Levante, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV, and the Giulia sedan. This would be smaller SUV model to slot below the Levante in the lineup.

It's not been confirmed if the new Maserati SUV will be manufactured at the Italian auto maker's Modena or Turin-based manufacturing facilities or if it will be assembled at Alfa's state-of-the-art Naples-based Cassino facility where now both the Stelvio and Giulia are built. The Levante is now based on the same platform as the Ghibli sedan.

Fiat Chrysler (FCHA.MI) will halt production of Maserati Levante sport utility vehicles at its plant in northern Italy for another nine days between November 22 and December 7, the FIOM union said in a statement on Friday. That's thanks in part to the availability of the Levante, which Marchionne believes will also push Maserati's earnings north of $1.18 billion for the year. Building a second SUV has worked wonders for Porsche, the company that basically started the sport SUV trend.

The second Maserati SUV will rival models like the BMW X3 and Audi Q5, although it will have a higher price tag.
