2023 Maserati Grecale Makes Its Way To U.S. Dealerships, Debuts PrimaSerie Package And $64,995 Base Price

The 2023 Maserati Grecale is a soft reset for the brand as it makes its second attempt at establishing a foothold in the SUV segment. The bigger Levante was the spearhead entry in the utility segment but while the delightfully insane Trofeo model impressed us with its insane levels of performance. The Levante lineup as a whole has not been hitting the sales targets that Maserati laid out. The Grecale aims to bring some bite back into these plans, while also steering the brand into a new direction.


Grecale Is A Smaller & Crisper Package

The exterior styling of the Grecale embraces the company’s new design language and as a result, the exterior styling is crisper than the Levante’s with the front fascia being reminiscent of the Quattroporte’s. The side profile is reminiscent of some of its rivals and the rear styling straddles a fine line between the elegance that has defined Maserati, and the performance that has helped it cement is performance heritage.

Buyers will have a choice of three models to choose from, the $64,995 GT, the $74,395 Modena, and the range-topping $103,995 Trofeo. This pricing puts the Grecale in the hunt with some of the segments best, and it’s a noticeable discount over the bigger Levante. That said, the Grecale’s lower price tag doesn’t mean that it skimps on equipment with technology taking the center stage. An 8.8-inch infotainment system is standard, but buyers can swap it out for a bigger 12.3-inch unit with both systems featuring Wireless CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa capabilities. The Grecale also gets a 14-speaker Sonos faber premium audio system, a heads-up display, Maserati Connect, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Performance for the lineup comes from a pair of engines with the GT and Modena being powered by a turbocharged mild hybrid equipped four-cylinder that makes 296 hp in the GT, and 325 hp in the Modena. The Trofeo model is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that’s borrowed from the MC20 Super car. This exotic engine allows the Trofeo to make 523 hp and easily be the fastest Grecale offering in the lineup. All three trims come with standard AWD and a standard eight-speed automatic.


When Can I Buy One?

The 2023 Maserati Grecale is available to order now with the full rollout to Maserati showrooms expected to be completed in the middle part of the year. In addition to the three core trim levels, Maserati will also be offering a limited production PrimaSerie package that will be available on the Modena and Trofeo models but this particular variant will not make its appearance until later this year and Maserati chose to keep pricing for that variant close to the vest.
