Grecale is a new chapter for Maserati. The group is introducing a smaller SUV to the European market than the Levante, which has dared to change the brand’s habits.
Maserati Grecale specs:
- top speed – 240 km/h
- acceleration up to 100 km/h – 5.6 sec
- horsepower – 300 Hp
- vehicle weight – 1870 kg
Grecale is the brand’s first model in its SUV class and the first Maserati to ditch the brand’s iconic analogue watch in favour of a voice-activated smartwatch. The Grecale can also be interacted with via two 12.3″ and 8.8″ central displays, a watch screen (12.3″) and a projection display.
The Grecale is available in the following versions: GT (300 hp), Modena (330 hp) and Trofeo (530 hp) and will compete in the market with SUVs the size of the Porsche Macan. A fourth electric version to be launched next year is called Folgore.
As emphasized by the Maserati sales director, the Grecale ushers in an entirely new era for Maserati. At the heart of this breakthrough model are solutions from the MC20, a new platform with the elegant Giorgio name, and soft-hybrid engines with 300 and 330 bhp proven on other models in the brand.

Maserati Grecale GT
The base Maserati Grecale GT is a ‘mild’ hybrid that has a two-litre four with a combined supercharger (turbocharger and electric supercharger) and a 48-volt starter generator (belt-driven). Output is 300 hp and 450 Nm. This crossover can accelerate to a hundred in 5.6 seconds and has a top speed of 240 km/h.
Maserati Grecale Trofeo
The range is crowned by the flagship Trofeo variant, with a twin supercharged V6 engine borrowed from the MC20. In Grecale, it develops 530 hp and 620 Nm. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and the top speed of the Italian SUV is 285 km/h. The Trofeo variant has a redesigned gearbox and an electronically controlled limited slip differential. The Nettuno unit used in the Grecale Trofeo in conjunction with the MC20 has been slightly upgraded, using a wet sump instead of a dry sump and a system that shuts off half the cylinders at lower load.
Maserati Grecale Modena
There is also a Modena version with the same engine but increased output to 330 bhp. Torque and top speed remain the same, and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is reduced to 5.5 seconds.
Maserati Grecale Folgore
An all-electric version of the Folgore will soon be added to the range. It will also be the first electric Maserati. It is already known that the car will develop 800Nm and will be fitted with a 400V unit, while the batteries will have a capacity of 105 kWh, which should provide good range.
Maserati Grecale release date:
The Maserati Grecale will be produced in the summer of 2022. It will initially only be available for purchase in the US, as well as in some other markets.
