2023 Maserati Grecale

TheGrecale wouldn't be a Maserati without a high-output model, and the Trofeomeets those expectations. Under its hood lies a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 with aburly 523 hp and 457 lb-ft. Launching from zero to 60 mph is estimated to takejust 3.6 seconds, or about half a second quicker than the most powerfulcurrently available Macan. The Grecale Trofeo does without the GT and Modena'smild hybrid layout, but cylinder deactivation under light loads should keepfuel consumption in check, if that's a concern.

Butgas-burners aren't the only powertrains in store for the Grecale. Next year,Maserati plans to bring a fully electric version into the fold, which it willcall the Grecale Folgore. Full specifications have not been announced yet, butit will be fed by a 105-kWh battery pack, use a 400-volt architecture, andproduce up to 590 lb-ft of torque.

All2023 Grecales will feature an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheeldrive. To help put power down in corners, a limited-slip rear differential isoptional for the GT and standard on the Modena and Trofeo. The Trofeo alsofeatures standard adaptive dampers, an air suspension, and larger brakes thanthose on the GT or Modena.
