New Maserati Levante Trofeo spotted in winter tests

New Maserati Levante Trofeo spotted in winter tests

February 29, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Maserati has confirmed that the updated Levante and Quattroporte will debut this summer, and now we can see the muscular Levante Trofeo undergoing winter trials.

Photo spies noticed this prototype of the Levante 2021 model year in northern Sweden without camouflage, without any external changes and engine upgrades. On testing, an excellent version of the Maserati Levante car, the Trofeo model, was noticed.

A label on the windshield revealed Levante’s “identity” through the details of the power plant. This is Levante AWD 2021 model year, equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 gasoline engine with 590 hp. Confirming this information with body kits, exhausts and powerful brakes, we look at the new Maserati Levante Trofeo.

Surprisingly, Levante Trofeo with facelift gets a larger engine with the same power, abandoning the 3.8-liter V8 engine with 590 hp. Ferrari installed in the current model. Most likely, this is due to the decision of Maserati not to renew with Ferrari the current deal for the supply of engines, which expires in 2021.

In terms of style, the prototype looks exactly the same as the current model, but this is only because this particular test instance does not have external updates. On the production version, which will appear at dealers this summer, modified bumpers and taillights are expected.

More important changes will occur internally as the entire dashboard is covered in cloth. A fully digital instrument cluster and an updated infotainment system are expected, along with other minor improvements, such as new upholstery and trim options.

The update for the Maserati Quattroporte and Levante aims to keep the cars fresh until the updated versions are presented in 2022 and 2023, respectively. Both facelift models will go into mass production in July.
