Default New Maserati SUV based on Jeep/Durango

Check out today's homepage article about the new Maserati Kubang based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee platform. Do you think they made the right engine choice?

Not really. The 6.4 is a freak of nature with a badass reputation. Maserati should lust for this as their engine choice with maserati tuning and exhaust sounds the euros love.

Euros lover their small displacement V8s and V12s. Mercedes tends to buck the trend, but it's almost a law that Italian performance vehicles have to have a small displacement V8 or V12. I love the 392, but Maserati knows their market.

True, but think of how many maserati owners with a 6.4 would attract attention from having it in their suv.

The front is ugly, but I like the back.

It would be nice to see the Italians get this "Imported from Detroit"
