Maserati's Jeep Based SUV to be Produced by Chrysler

Maserati’s upcoming SUV is going to be produced at Chrysler’s Jefferson North plant in Detroit, according to the Automotive News.

What will Maserati’s new SUV look like? Well it’s based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee and we will get a preview of the SUV at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month, when the concept version debuts.

The biggest concern is how much Maserati and it’s parent Fiat can differentiate the Maserati from the Grand Cherokee.

“The important point is that whatever Maserati we launch will be a product that respects the entire heritage, image, characteristics, and customer expectations of this brand,” Harald Wester, Maserati’s CEO, said in an interview earlier this year. “What ends up in the dealer shops should be 100 percent Maserati.”

We do know that the Maserati SUV will be powered by the Grand Cherokee’s HEMI V8.
