You may have heard of it already. Maserati has its first compact SUV. It is called Grecale. It is now making its debut in the U.K. at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. And it will not be there for show and tell; it will take on the famous hill climb.
Like other models from the Italian automaker, the Grecale is available in a few trims, including GT, Modena, and the sportiest of all, the Trofeo. The latter is the variant that will be making the hill climb.
In line with the brand’s plans for full electrification across the range, the Grecale will be the first model to premiere the fully electric Folgore trim in 2023. When that happens, the Grecale Folgore will be the first-ever all-electric SUV in the trident marque’s history.
Anyhoo, as far as the present Grecale goes, it is powered by a 3.0L six-cylinder twin-turbo engine that revolves around Maserati Twin Combustion (MTC) technology that made its first appearance on the Nettuno engine in the MC20 supercar – which will also be taking on the iconic 1.16-mile course over the Goodwood Festival of Speed weekend in the Supercar Run.
Trofeo trim, meanwhile, is a super sporty trim that includes exposed 3-D carbon fiber, perforated leather, and 21-inch alloy wheels – just to name a few.
