Maserati Kubang will receive a diesel engine and use its stereo to deliver proper sound

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 30, 2012

When the new Maserati Kubang will be launched, it will be the first diesel-powered model offered by the Italian brand. Set to go on sale in 2014, the Maserati Kubang will use its stereo system to provide drivers with a sportier engine note. That’s right, so this means that you will have to accelerate with your windows closed in order to hear a proper sound for the engine.

According to Roberto Corradi, vice-president of product development, this is the only way that Maserati will be able to keep its reputation for building great sounding cars. Despite the fact that Corradi didn’t want to give any details regarding the diesel engine that will power the Kubang, it is believed that the same 3.0-litre V6 diesel found on the Jeep Grand Cherokee will also be found on the first Italian SUV. Still, this is expected to be more powerful than the version found in the Grand Cherokee, which delivers 237 hp.

The Maserati Kubang will also be available with a V8 petrol engine in order to show its real power, maybe some of you want this! [source: WhatCar]
