2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo: The New Standard of SUV’s
It’s the finest luxury SUV and it’s…fast
Maserati has revved it up, to say the least, with the latest edition of a faster, more assertive 2019 Levante Trofeo. If speed is what you seek, Maserati delivered the goods.
Maserati CEO Tim Kuniskis says, “they were up to the challenge of making the finest luxury SUV also one of the fastest.”
One of the fastest SUV’s is certainly an understatement. Ferrari engineers redesigned the engine with speed and power in mind. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged V8 engine with 590 horsepower and 538 lb-ft torque. The redefined Maserati of SUVs accelerates in style from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of over 187 mph. Comparable to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and the Bentley Bentayaga W12.
The exterior’s brilliant design imposes an assertive presence, combined with class and luxury. Besides the eight unique paint colors, including two Matte finishes that compliment an impressive, eye-catching front grille, the 2019 Levante Trofeo includes 22-inch staggered aluminum wheels, adaptive Matrix LED headlights, aluminum hood with dual air vents, carbon fiber-vertical blades, front splitter and side sills.
The inside is pure luxury that features a set of sport seats wrapped in Pieno Fiore leather with the stitched Trofeo logo in the headrest. The updated gear shifter improves functionality, but also includes the Corsa mode or the race mode for those who venture the track. The unique instrument cluster background, power aluminum sport pedals and 3D carbon fiber trim highlight the excellence of luxury.
While strapped into the 2019 Levante Trofeo either on the road or at the track, enjoy its technology. Trofeo offers an 8.4-inch touch control plus with navigation, 17 speaker Bowers and Wilkins surround sound system and a surround view camera.
The Levante Trofeo production began this summer and will go on sale shortly thereafter. The standards of SUV’s have suddenly taken a turn in a big hurry.
