When Maserati announced they have to delay the launch of the all-new Grecale from November 16, 2021, to Spring 2022, we were not entirely surprised. At the time, the global chip shortage was affecting automakers left and right. Since Maserati will not be able to meet global demand during that time, they decided to defer the launch to a later date.
Despite this setback, Maserati did show us new images of the all-new crossover last month. Sure, it had a red camo livery, but we were still able to see more of its stylish exterior. Maserati was even busy testing it in cold climate conditions to ensure it can take on the harsh wintry conditions.
Fast forward to February, and Maserati has released yet another set of photos of the 2022 Grecale. But unlike last month’s pictures, Maserati ditched the red camouflage. Instead, they used a new eye-catching body wrap that shows us what to expect from the upcoming crossover.
With it, we get to see more of the Grecale’s massive grille, sharp LED headlights, signature vents on the fenders, the sloping roofline, inverted L-shaped LED taillights and muscular fenders. As for the wrapping itself, it has just one message that reads “I’m the Maserati Grecale. I can’t tell you much more”.
Powertrain details are not yet available for the Grecale. However, we won’t be surprised if it will have similar engine options as the Ghibli. This means there’s a possibility the Levante’s little sibling could come with a 2.0-liter mild-hybrid turbo inline-four. For reference, the engine makes 330 PS with 450 Nm of torque in the Ghibli sedan.
When will Maserati reveal its latest crossover? All will be revealed on March 22, 2022, which means we’re just about four weeks away before the automaker reveals everything we need to know about it.
After its debut next month, we can expect Maserati Philippines to bring the Grecale to the market sometime next year.
