About the Maserati Levante Trofeo
Tested and perfected on the track, the race-proven Maserati Levante Trofeo is the flagship of the Maserati SUV lineup. The name “Levante” is taken from the forceful wind that blows across the Mediterranean, shifting in force from one instant to the next. It’s the perfect namesake for this high-performance SUV, hinting at the jaw-dropping acceleration capabilities and impeccable comfort features that make the Levante Trofeo truly one of a kind. While other SUVs offer pure versatility, the Levante Trofeo is engineered with the seductive DNA and styling cues that have made Maserati road cars some of the most coveted in the world.
Beneath the hood lies a bespoke 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged engine that produces a remarkable 580 horsepower. Helping to keep the Levante Trofeo stable at high speeds and agile through twisting canyon roads, lightweight carbon fiber is prominently featured in exterior elements including the rear valance, side skirts, and front grille. These track-inspired features help elevate the Maserati Levante Trofeo above all other high-performance luxury SUVs.
What the Critics Say
“Big power isn’t all that makes the Trofeo special. Maserati says its top-shelf Levante boasts a 50:50 weight distribution and a Corsa (race) mode, which means this ‘ute ought to be a mighty fine steer. Launch control makes the ludicrous acceleration a repeatable affair, should drivers so desire to rearrange the faces of their passengers at every green light.”
“The Levante Trofeo will hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and keep going past 187 mph. Those figures are pretty close to those of the MC12 supercar, a sibling of the Ferrari Enzo, which hit 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds and topped out a hair above 205.”
Maserati Levante Trofeo Features
The beating heart of the Levante Trofeo is a precision-crafted 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that cranks out a robust 580 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque. This Ferrari-sourced powerplant allows the Levante Trofeo to punch far above its weight class with a jaw-dropping power-to-weight ratio of 8.1 pounds/horsepower. Helping to instill confidence both on and off the track, its standard Q4 intelligent all-wheel drive system also features a limited-slip differential to help the Levante Trofeo remain stable in both dry and wet conditions. Similarly, the standard Skyhook performance suspension includes electronic damping control to keep this SUV composed when pushed to its limits. Thanks to this comprehensive collection of performance features, you’ll have the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in a blistering 3.8 seconds on your way to a top speed of 187 MPH.
Striking styling and functional performance design elements of the Maserati Levante Trofeo deliver an ideal blend of capability and prestige. Keeping things cool underneath the hood is an all-aluminum hood featuring prominent dual vents. Adding a visual signature combined with superior visibility to the front of the Levante Trofeo are LED matrix headlamps. Authentic carbon fiber is used in the front splitter, side skirts, front grille blades, and rear valance to reduce unsprung weight. You’ll also notice a carbon fiber engine cover and red cylinder heads under the hood, yet another race-inspired attribute of this performance SUV. Signature 22-inch alloy wheels and Trofeo badging help to further differentiate the Maserati Levante Trofeo from the rest of the model range.
Inside the Maserati Levante Trofeo, standard Pieno Fiore leather upholstery offers a supple combination of comfort and support. On the headrest, you’ll find the signature Trofeo emblems proudly embossed into the leather. The unique composition of this leather allows it to wear naturally over time for a truly unique look. A 3D matte carbon fiber weave pattern trim adds an additional track-focused touch inside the cabin. Paddle shifters seamlessly wrap behind the steering wheel for precise, crisp gear changes. Race-inspired controls located within easy reach of the driver help provide a more engaging experience behind the wheel of the Levante Trofeo.
