New Details On The Ferrari Purosangue SUV

The Ferrari of SUVs, codenamed as the Purosangue, is on its way for 2022. Expect a V8 and hybrid power.

As Ferrari looks to the present and the future, the addition of an SUV to their historically supercar portfolio seems like an aberration. But then again, it seemed that way for Porsche and a number of other brands including Lamborghini, Rolls Royce and Bentley. The Ferrari Purosangue SUV project is expected to come to fruition in 2022.

The legendary “Prancing Horse” on a Ferrari SUV will command no less than $350,000 USD, before any personalization begins. The Ferrari truck will be based on a new front-engine GT car platform and call upon a V8 for motivation.

This V8 will likely receive a pair of turbochargers and, looking to the future, will need some form of electrification. Ferrari’s got some practice in this department and we can imagine the outcome. All told, the power output will surely hover in the 650+ horsepower range, possibly much more.

According to Car and Driver, the platform will hold a rear-mounted transaxle which, by default, would leave the front axle to house an electric motor. This seems like a recipe for the next Ferrari GT4CLusso…

No matter how purists and enthusiasts feel about the Purosangue, it has become a necessary evil. It will also make lots and lots of money for Ferrari.
