Rumors exploded over the past few months that the Maserati Levante concept would be built on a Jeep platform. While some were stoked about the possibilities, they will not come to pass on a Jeep chassis regardless of the parent relations between Fiat and Chrysler. The Maserati Levante SUV will instead sit on the new Quattroporte/Ghibli architecture.
The Maserati Levante SUV will not be Jeep based after all. Maserati CEO Harald Wester has reviled changes to the plan. It will look very much like the Kubang concept, shown above.
