As part of Maserati’s effort to diversify its inventory, the Grecale will be the second SUV to visit the Italian automaker’s showrooms in 2023. The brand’s brand-new mid-size Levante is followed by the company’s new small luxury crossover. The Grecale shares a prominent Maserati grille with the upcoming MC20 supercar, while the rest of its bulbous shape is typical of its class, which includes rivals like the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, BMW X3, and Porsche Macan. The 296-hp turbo-four and all-wheel drive are standard on the 2023 Grecale.
In addition, the top-of-the-line Trofeo offers maximum performance with a 523-hp twin-turbo V-6 engine. A 325-hp version of a similar engine is also offered. Next year, the portfolio will include an all-electric Maserati Grecale Folgore (evaluated separately).
What’s New for 2023?
During the MC20 reveal announcement in 2020, the Grecale was first alluded to. Finally, Maserati’s second SUV has been made public after we caught a glimpse of a prototype and more teaser photographs.

With its turbo six, the sporty Trofeo variant is capable of 25 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg in the city. When we have an opportunity, we’ll evaluate the Grecale’s fuel efficiency on our 75-mph highway test route and report back here. Visit the EPA website for additional details regarding the Grecale’s fuel efficiency.
A 12.3-inch touchscreen controls much of the Grecale’s Google-based infotainment system, but a smaller 8.8-inch touchscreen on the bottom manages additional functions. Every model includes wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hotspot is available for a monthly fee. Grecale’s infotainment system is compatible with voice-activated programs like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Another option for the SUV’s music system is a 21-speaker, 1285-watt Sonus Faber stereo.
Features for Driver Assistance and Safety
A variety of basic and optional driver-assistance technologies are anticipated for the compact Ute. Visit the websites of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for more details regarding the Grecale crash test results. Included in key safety features should be.

- Four years or 50,000 miles are covered under the limited warranty.
- The warranty on the powertrain is valid for four years or 50,000 miles.
- There is no free planned maintenance.
