  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Here It Is: Maserati Releases Official Photos of Levante SUV

Recommended Posts

Maserati Levante profile

Maserati has released the first official pictures of its upcoming new SUV, the Levante, ahead of the vehicle’s public debut at the Geneva auto show next month. The brand’s first sport-utility is claimed to be based on the same platform that underpins the Ghibli and Quattroporte sports sedans—and not derived from the Jeep Grand Cherokee as first believed.

The rear-drive-based architecture enables the Levante’s cab-rearward design, which in profile isn’t far off from that of the Jaguar F-pace—another high-performance luxury SUV newcomer that seems likely to be one of the Maserati’s chief competitors in spirit if not in price. Signature design elements for the Levante include the triple air vents (don’t call them portholes) on the front fenders, the trapezoidal C-pillars, and frameless door glass. Up front, we see a concave grille with a large trident, and headlamps that reach out to meet the grille, somewhat like those on a BMW 3-series.

Maserati is not yet releasing engine info, but we expect the Levante to use the same Ferrari-developed turbocharged V-6 and V-8 powerplants as the sedans (with a diesel V-6 for Europe). The company did confirm that an eight-speed automatic will be standard, as will the brand’s Q4 all-wheel drive and its electronically controlled air suspension. A plug-in hybrid is expected to arrive within two years.

The road to an SUV has been a long one for Maserati. Such a vehicle was previewed twice by auto-show concepts, both called Kubang, one in 2011 and one way back in 2003. The company claims that production of the Levante has now begun, with deliveries starting in Europe this spring and in the rest of the world later this year.

Porsche did it years ago, well an SUV, and everyone bought 'em so there's a market. Lambo is rumoured still to be working on theirs.
