The worldwide semiconductor shortage that has influenced numerous automakers hasn’t spared Maserati. The business has had to postpone debuting its Grecale crossover because of the issue, though the company has actually continued developing the brand-new design. The most up to date spy shots captured the crossover sitting in a parking area after some cold-weather testing, providing our closest appearance yet at the new design, consisting of a wonderful look at the inside.
Maserati covers the dashboard in these new images, but previous spy shots showed the infomercial display and also dash-mounted clock. The fresh images disclose most of the facility console, armrest, as well as doors, which are primarily covered in red leather. The passenger-side doors have brown leather, yet this is an examination lorry. The pictures don’t reveal much, though we see the indoor styling as well as push-button door manages.
The brand-new images also permit us to see the Grecale’s Trofeo high-performance goodies thoroughly. That consists of the bigger brakes with pierced discs, the red calipers, as well as the various tailpipes. The crossover in its Trofeo trim looks flashy, riding reduced to the ground, though the typical Grecale does not have a high flight height. The new crossover will share the exact same Giorgio platform that underpins the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which indicates both should share powertrains.
The Grecale Trofeo can obtain the very same twin-turbo V6 that powers the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, that makes 505 horsepower (376 kilowatts) in the Alfa. There are additionally reports that Maserati could put its brand-new Netunno engine from its MC20 supercar right into the crossover. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 makes a massive 621 hp (463 kW), though we would expect Maserati to call it back a little bit for the Grecale.
The semiconductor lack has forced Maserati to postpone the Grecale’s debut up until at some point this springtime. That implies we could be several months far from seeing the Grecale Trofeo as car manufacturers like to stagger debuting brand-new designs and their performance variants. A potent Grecale Trofeo will obtain lovers thrilled, however the majority of will likely opt for a basic Grecale, which we suspect will be far more important to the brand name’s profits.
