While every Maserati achieves a balance between exceptional performance and uncompromised luxury, the Levante GTS sets a new benchmark. This assertive, 542 bhp V8 SUV is engineered and meticulously tuned for superior performance, long-distance comfort and driving pleasure—the enduring principles of Maserati’s grand-touring philosophy.
Elegant in style and composure, the Levante GTS has been tested around the world through extreme conditions—across desert and ice. It is the next evolution of the Maserati SUV, built around one of the most powerful engines ever fitted in a Maserati: the mighty 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that, until now, was reserved for the flagship Quattroporte GTS. With the unmistakable voice of a Maserati V8, the Levante GTS accelerates to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds1. This is raw power—with refinement.
The Levante GTS Twin Turbo V8 maintains the V90 architecture of the 3.8-litre unit fitted in the flagship Quattroporte GTS but has been re-engineered to work with the Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System and retuned to deliver 542hp (404 kW) at 6,250 rpm and 730 Nm peak torque between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm. Like all Maserati petrol engines, this V8 is assembled by Ferrari in Maranello.
Thanks to its remarkable weight/power ratio of 3.9 kg/hp the Levante GTS needs only 4.2 seconds to reach 100 km/h, while its top speed is 292 km/h – performance figures of a modern supercar disguised in a high-end SUV body. The rigid and perfectly balanced Levante chassis has been tuned to effortlessly handle the immense power of the GTS, providing a driving experience true to the “Gran Turismo” pedigree of this new V8 Maserati of SUVs.

The Levante’s unmistakable design reached new levels of sportiness in the Trofeo version and the new GTS has adopted a similar styling theme, which focuses on the lower front fascia and the rear bumper, providing a sporty yet sophisticated presence.
Interior designers have come up with elegant ideas to create a distinctive environment within the Levante GTS cabin providing it with standard Full Premium leather or full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather as an option, sport pedals and Harman Kardon Audio system with 14 speakers.
Alongside the V8 campaign, the Levante range has inherited new contents, such as the Adaptive Full LED Matrix headlights as an option and standard Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC), which is already available on the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans. Rather than simply correcting vehicle instability, the IVC function helps prevent it, providing enhanced active safety, improved driving dynamics and an even more exciting performance.
