Maserati has unveiled the 2019 Levante Trofeo, the first Levante built around a V8 engine. The ultimate Maserati of SUVs, has one of the most powerful engines ever fit under the hood of a Maserati and reaches 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed over 186 mph.
The 2019 Levante Trofeo is powered by a 3.8L Twin Turbo V8 engine with 590 hp and 538 lb-ft. of torque. The engine boasts the highest output per liter of any Maserati powerplant ever produced and the best part – the engine is built by Ferrari. That massive 590 horsepower is sent to all four wheels via an all-wheel-drive system.
A new “Corsa” driving mode with Launch Control functionality is added to the existing Normal, I.C.E., Sport and Off Road modes. The “Corsa” driving mode improves engine response and opens exhaust valves in acceleration, as well as provides faster gear shifting, lower air suspension height levels, sportier Skyhook damping and optimizes the all-wheel drive settings.
To go along with the beast of an engine, the Levante Trofeo gets a restyled front and rear bumpers and 22-inch forged aluminum “Orione” wheels. The side air intakes in the lower fascia feature a new, more aggressive design and to help improve the airflow distribution, the Levante Trofeo is outfitted with carbon fiber side bezel blades and a carbon fiber splitter. The rear end also looks wider and more muscular with a sharper carbon fiber horizontal element and body-color lower extractor.
