For several years, people have been speculating about the 2020 Ferrari SUV. It looks like the new model is finally a certain thing. This will be the first time to see an SUV from the famous Italian carmaker. Moreover, it will be the first Ferrari with five doors. At this point, most details about the new model are rumors, but many of them seem pretty certain. Most rival already entered this super-luxury SUV market and the Italian carmaker will be the last one to enter. There are already models like Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, Rolls Royce Cullinan etc.
The 2020 Ferrari SUV will probably come next year as a concept vehicle. Serial production probably won’t come so soon, as the latest reports suggest the new model will hit the market sometime in 2022. Still, keep in mind that most details about the 2020 Ferrari SUV are just rumors. So, take the all the info from the upcoming paragraphs with a high dose of a reserve.
2020 Ferrari SUV Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the will be the first-ever SUV from the famous carmaker. At this moment, we know that the new model will enter the super-luxury SUV market. The name has been rumored as well. If we can rely on the latest rumors, it will be caller Purosangue. In terms of the overall design, we have no doubt that Ferrari aims the new Urus and its performances. However, the latest reports suggest it will be smaller in terms of size. On the other side, the most distinctive thing about this model will be the number of doors. It will be the first-ever Ferrari to come with five doors. Still, don’t count on a genuine SUV design. This model will feature today’s industry popular coupe-like layout, something that we originally saw on the X6 more than a decade ago, but something that is also a pretty common thing these days.
Ferrari SUV Styling
This aspect of the new model is still a mystery. Most likely, key details will be known once the company presents a concept version on some of the major car shows. Until then, we can only speculate. Considering that the production model is still three years far from the production, we may presume it will come based on a completely new design language. We already mentioned a coupe-like layout, as well as the smaller size than the Urus. However, the actual aesthetics are still a mystery. Same goes to the interior design. We can’t say anything about the styling but are pretty sure that the new SUV won’t be quite practical. Given the expected size, it definitely won’t be characterized by plenty of interior space. Rear seats will probably be very tight, while the cargo probably won’t be very useful. Still, we expect to see all the refinement and exotics that are common for this car brand.
2020 Ferrari SUV Engine
Currently, Ferrari still sticks to gasoline engines only. However, many things could change in the next three years, including the electrification of the powertrain lineup. Therefore, most reports claim that the 2020 Ferrari SUV will come with a hybrid powertrain. Most likely, the setup will include a gasoline engine that will be mounted at the front, while electric motor(s) and the battery will be placed at the rear end. Such layout will provide good weight distribution, which is crucial for top-notch performances, which is the company’s trademark. Without any doubt, the 2020 Ferrari SUV’s main goal will be to set some new standards and to provide world-leading acceleration, top speed and overall performances. However, it is still way too early for any numbers.
Ferrari SUV Release Date
Latest reports suggest the first SUV of the famous carmaker will come in about three years, probably in 2022. However, many reports suggest the arrival of the 2020 Ferrari SUV. Most likely, this refers to a possible concept version. This version should hit some of the world’s major auto shows and it could serve to introduce a new styling approach and newest technology achievements of the Italian company. Is the production version going to stick to this possible concept versions, it seems early to speculate about.
Ferrari SUV Competition
Without any doubt, Lamborghini Urus will be the key competitor. This model debuted a year ago and it is currently the fastest SUV in the world. It features a 4.0-liter engine with about 640 horsepower but we count on a more powerful version in the near future as well. Besides the Urus, the super-luxury segment includes a few more strong competitors. Of course, Bentley Bentayga is one of them, characterized by hi-end craftsmanship and an enormous dose of luxury. Finally, there is a recently-launched Rolls Royce Cullinan, which is bigger than other competitors and offers the world’s leading luxury and style, along with excellent performances.
