Maserati Levante: US price set

by David Zatz on

Maserati’s first crossover, the 2017 Levante, will appear this fall, with a base price of $72,000 for the 345 horsepower version and $83,000 for the 424 Levante S. (In each case, destination charges are extra.) It has standard all wheel drive,

The Levante is loosely based on the Chrysler 300C, boasting a twin turbo V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission.  There are major differences between the domestic car (and engine) and the Maserati versions, including a completely different front suspension, lighter-weight materials, and upgraded electronics.

The base Levante will sell for around $4,500 more than a base Dodge Charger Hellcat or Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 4×4. Unlike the Dodge, it has standard all wheel drive.

There are currently 116 Maserati dealers in North America, and that number is set to grow at a moderate pace. Maserati expects to sell around 20,000 cars per year in North America, up from 12,000 last year once the Levante is fully established — a realistic goal given other high-end automakers’ success with crossovers.

Orders will be taken in April, with production (for North American buyers) starting in July.
