  • Maserati is officially stepping into the premium SUV game with its 2017 Levante later this year. Since the company’s establishment over one hundred years ago, this will be the first-ever SUV to represent the Maserati brand, and not to mention, the first luxury-grade Italian SUV since the disappearance of the Lamborghini LM002 in 1993. 

    The name  “Levante”, referring to a warm wind that has the ability to change from a gentle to gale force in an instant, regardless of the time of year, day, or hour, represents this genuine and unique product to a T. Typical of the Maserati brand, this car is sleek, bold, and sculpted with subtle details in all of the right places. Built on the Ghibli architecture, the Levante has been designed to handle both on and off road performance, with an adjustable Air Ride suspension. 

    As far as the engine goes, the Levante is powered by a 3.0 liter, V6 Twin-Turbo (a second generation version of the Ghibli). These Ferrari-built engines make 345 hp in the Levante and 424 hp in the Levante S. The 345 hp Levante will accelerate from 0-60 in 5.8 seconds, topping at 156 mph and the 424 hp Levante S will reach 60 mph in 5.0 seconds, topping at 164 mph. 

    With a spacious interior, this vehicle has many features, such as an 8.4 Touch Screen with Navigation, 8 speakers connected to a Base Audio System and two premium sound options- one by Harman Kardon and another by Bowers & Wilkins, wipers with a rain sensor, keyless entry and start, and the option of silk-enhanced upholstery.

  • Motor Trend recently took the 2017 Maserati Levante for a spin. Jim Butler Maserati couldn’t contain their excitement after reading Motor Trend’s first drive review. The driver begins by stating that they felt like they were parked while driving 110 miles per hour, because the Levante felt “solid as a rock”. 
    The 2017 Maserati Levante, Maserati’s first ever SUV, made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show last month. Under the hood sits a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V6 that can either come in a 345 horsepower and 369 pound-foot of torque or the 424 horsepower and 428 pound-foot. The engine is routed to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The Maserati Levante can go from 0-60 miles per hour in 5.8 and 5.0 seconds. 
    The first drive review stated that while driving 110 on the Autostrada del Sole, there was a BMW X5 M that blew past them. The driver buried their right foot and the Levante was well over 160 mph and breezing past the X5 M. 
    The Levante has an aluminum front subframe, shock towers, and frameless doors. This results in a body-in-white that is 330 pounds lighter than the Ghibli’s body and 20 percent stiffer. Like the Ghibli, the Levante drives lighter than it is. There is a 50/50 weight distribution, which is no easy trick for a front engine. 
    Although it is estimated that less than 1% of Levante owners will actually take their vehicle off the road, Maserati made it very capable in the dirt. Maserati believes that owners will like knowing they can take their ride off-roading, and the Levante can do that with its sophisticated air prings and an automatic electronically locking Torsen differential.  The springs feature 3.3 inches of total height adjustment, and the two off road modes will allow for 1.6 inches of extra height. There is also a parking lot setting that will drop the Levante an additional 0.4 inches for easy loading.
    Jim Butler Maserati is very excited for the Maserati Levante to hit the dealership lot come fall 2016. Adding a SUV to the Maserati lineup will make a great addition to the team. 


  • The highly anticipated 2017 Maserati Levante is making its first ever appearance in the United States. The name Levante is inspired by a type of warm Mediterranean wind that can change from gentle to a strong force in an instant.

    The 2017 Maserati Levante is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 Twin-Turbo gasoline engine built by Ferrari. The engine comes with a 345 horsepower (Levante) or the 424 horsepower (Levante S). All engines have the Q4 all-wheel drive system, which transfers torque between the axles instantaneously when required.

The Levante S accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds, with a top speed of 164 mph.
