Considering that since recently on the market, 2019 Maserati Levante has no significant changes compared to the previous model. Of course, based on the Kubang concept. The main competition will be the new Porsche Cayenne, and there is also Mercedes-Benz GLE-class and BMW X6. In addition, in 2019, Maserati Levante Esteso announced, with significantly more powerful engines.
The current Levante comes in the basic configuration and S which are both powered by the 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine. In the basic form, this engine produces 345 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. In the next level of tuning, this engine delivers 424 hp and 428 lb-ft of torque. The engines come in combination with the 8-speed automatic transmission and the standard all-wheel drive. The Levante S sprints to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and fuel economy is around 16 mpg combined. These engines will probably come back in the same form for the 2019 version.
However, the difference will make the new Maserati Levante 2019 version with the GTS badge. This version is expected to get a 3.8-liter V8 bi-turbo engine from the Quattroporte GTS. This engine produces 523 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque in this model, but Levante will likely get more ponies to compete with the BMW X5 M and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. The model will also receive chassis and braking adjustments as well as suspension upgrades.
As we have already mentioned, the 2019 Maserati Levante will be in the third year of production, so we do not expect further changes. This crossover, which recently came as a brand new model, will continue with the same design. It will feature a familiar style, full of Italian flavor. The interior design will also be pretty much the same, although we can see some changes in terms of standard features and similar things. The basic Q4 model will come with standard features like 19-inch wheels, xenon hadlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, adjustable steering wheel, leather upholstery, 8.4-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity and more. A high-end Maserati Levante S 2019 will add upgraded wheels, panoramic sunroof, upgraded leather upholstery, shift paddles, front and rear parking sensors, and more. There are also optional Sport, Luxe and Advance Driver Assistance Plus packages.
The Maserati Levante 2019 will come somewhere in the second half of next year. The base price will be approximately $ 73,000.
