The First Ferrari SUV Production Confirmed for 2022
The Purosangue SUV will make its debut, according to Ferrari’s 2021 sales report. Production of this vehicle will commence in 2022, with deliveries beginning in 2023, according to the business. A full launch is expected in the coming months, though Ferrari hasn’t specified when we’ll see the SUV for the first time.
The Purosangue was initially identified in 2018, and it has been tested multiple times in the 2 years that followed. Earlier spy photographs purported to show test mules modeled on the Maserati Levante, but the current images show the production bodywork of the SUV.
The Purosangue is predicted to cost significantly more than the $179,986 Aston Martin DBX and $225,501 Lamborghini Urus SUVs, with costs estimated to begin upwards of $300,000. Although it is not yet public knowledge what will power the Purosangue yet, a turbocharged V-8 with hybrid assist might be probable.
Ferrari may sell the SF90 with either the 819-hp V-6 hybrid powerplant from the 296 GTB or the twin-turbo V-8 plug-in hybrid configuration. According to certain reports, Ferrari may put a V-12 engine underneath the hood of the Purosangue. Because the 812 Competizione is the corporation’s last nonhybrid internal combustion V-12 model, it’ll almost certainly be an electric model.
Ferrari, like most automakers, is trying to save money by consolidating platforms, but their new design, shown on Roma, is more adaptable unlike many. Owing to this, don’t anticipate it to share anything except the gap between the engine and the firewall.
In recent times, high-performance SUVs are raking in the big bucks. The Urus accounted for about 60% of the 2021 sales for Lamborghini, with only over 5000 units of the 641-hp SUV sold globally. On the other hand, the Aston Martin DBX saw an 82 percent increase in sales last year. The automaker just showed an almost 700-hp variant of the DBX. Ferrari, understandably, wants a piece of the SUV money maker.
