Rumor: Maserati’s upcoming SUV to be called Cinqueporte

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 20, 2011

As you may know already, Maserati unveiled the Kubang SUV Concept back in September, at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Although the Kubang name is not entirely new to us, as a previous Maserati concept wearing the same name was unveiled back in 2003 at the Detroit Auto Show, the new concept was completely new!

Based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the new car is expected to receive a 4.7-liter HEMI V8 engine and will take on cars such as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo or the Bmw X5/X6 M. The name of the new Maserati SUV remained a secret…. until now, as the Italian manufacturer just registered the ‘Cinqueporte’ name.

Although Maserati didn’t confirm anything, the name would make perfect sense… as ‘Cinqueporte’ is the Italian for five-doors, which means that it will be a vehicle bigger than the current flagship sedan, the Quattroporte. Still, the ‘Cinqueporte’ name was previously used by Maserati for a wagon version of the Quattroporte, but we doubt that the Italian company is planning a five-door version of the sedan.

The new Maserati Cinqueporte SUV will be the perfect addition to the Maserati lineup in order to boost company’s sales, and if the production version will be just like the concept, then prepare to see the mother of all SUVs.
