It’s been reported that the Maserati Levante, Maserati’s mid-sized crossover luxury vehicle, will expand the lineup of engines that are available, now offering the same, twin-turbo v8 engine from their Quattroporte model.
The 3.8-liter engine currently produces 523 horsepower. However, there is a long way between a prototype and going through production. If it does eventually enter production, it will be part of a small segment of SUVs with over 500 horsepower. It would put it right in between the two versions of the Porsche Cayenne Turbos in terms of horsepower:
Porsche Cayenne Turbo – 520 HP
Maserati Levante – 523 HP
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S – 570 HP
The V6 version of the Levante will go on sale in Late August in the United States, available in both 350 and 430 HP
