Ferrari engine! I hope you don't have to pull the engine to do an oil change.

Possibly not, but you have to use only extra virgin oil in the engine.

424 HP for the Performance Tuned S Version. And 345 HP for the regular turbocharged V6.

Both of these horsepower numbers are below the current WK2 5.7L and 6.4L V8 engine options.

I'm not impressed at all.

It's not about HP, it's about Torque.

Re: New Maserati SUV Levante with turbocharged V6 - foreshadowing GC 2019?

A GC based on this chassis would probably be a lot lighter than the old W133 platform WK2s, so that would help any HP gaps. I would imagine that the next gen GC will share a chassis with another FCA product, so its possible this may underpin the next GC.
