Default Ferrari's First SUV Should Have More Power Than the Lamborghini Urus

This new crossover, being developed under the Purosangue name, is likely to arrive in 2022.


Quote:
However heretical it may seem, Ferrari is working on an SUV under the code name "Purosangue," and here is what we know about it.

It's likely to use a turbocharged V-8 with hybrid assistance, with somewhere in the neighborhood of 650 horsepower.

Look for the Ferrari SUV to arrive in 2022 with a starting price of around $350,000.

An SUV is a shocking move for Ferrari, a brand so tied to motorsports, but also a certain one after the success of the Bentley Bentayga, the Lamborghini Urus, and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. We're sure Ferrari won't deign to call it an SUV. Might we suggest "SAD"?

Being developed under the Purosangue nameóthat's Italian for "thoroughbred" or "pure blood"óthe crossover sits on a new front-engine GT platform that also will underpin some more conventional Ferrari grand tourers.

Although Ferrari's GT cars have traditionally been powered by 12-cylinder engines, we anticipate the Purosangue will switch to a smaller turbocharged unit, most likely a V-8 working with a generous measure of hybrid assistance. We know the platform will use a rear-mounted transaxle, so it would be logical for the front axle to be electrically powered. We would be surprised if it didn't have at least as much power as the 641-hp Lambor*ghi*ni Urus, and likely a significant chunk more.

Ferrari likes money. [I can't believe you like money, too. We should hang out!óEd.] Building a product to match market demand makes a huge amount of green, crinkly sense, especially given the premium that buyers will be prepared to pay for a prancing horse on their ute. Then again, it's possible that the idea of a Ferrari SUV will seem as ludicrous in five years as it did five years ago. As recently as 2016, late Ferrari boss Sergio Marchionne told financial analysts, "You have to shoot me first" for such a thing to happen. RIP, Sergio.

The Uterus is a Q7 abortion. Guess it's time to buy old Ferrari's before they offer a Ferrari Wrangler Hellcat, although I would buy if manual

Not sure why, but the past week Iíve probably seen 5-7 of them. Before last week, I may have seen 1 or 2. It sure is fugly. The only fancy SUV or CUV I could see owning is a Porsche Cayenne or AMG G Wagon.

I was also shocked to know the G Wagon starts at like $126k. I was expecting a fully loaded one to start at that price. There is a new 2019 for sale by me for like $209k.

$209k for a ****ing Mercedes SUV.

I'd prefer the Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio over any of them.

I, too, have noticed an uptick in Urus' (Uruii?) driving around town lately. I see probably 5 a week.

I still don't get the point of an ultra luxury "sports" SUV but if I had to pick, give me a Cayenne Turbo and I'll pocket the extra $70K I'd save from the Urus, or even more from the Ferrari.

It's worse than that....



$209,000 for a German military Jeep with leather and satnav.....





So it's actually a better deal than a used Wrangler on 32's

Macan isnít really a direct comparison because of size. The Macan turbo is damn fun though and handles incredibly well. I want one.

^GLC63 is actually a little lighter than the E63 sedan and a lot lighter than the wagon. I don't understand the small SUV though - can't haul or tow anything, so what's the point? I still like the E63 wagon for the best Merc, but I prefer to have a big, slower SUV and fast car(s).
