The Levante is available in four models, with the Trofeo (reviewed separately) topping out the range. The Levante GT, Modena, and F Tributo models share a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, but outputs differ from 345 hp/369 lb-ft on the entry-spec model, to 424 hp/428 lb-ft on the Modena and Tributo. Modena S models come with a 3.8-liter V8 with 550 hp and 538 lb-ft. All engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to an all-wheel-drive system.
The GT is more luxury-orientated with less power, more chrome on the outside, and more restrained styling details. The Modena shares a very similar feature count, but is more sportily styled with aggressive bumpers, more black-outed exterior treatment and a more powerful engine. F Tributo models have a special aesthetic that pays homage to the racing roots of the brand with unique badging, yellow brake calipers, and a special interior. The Modena S is the top trim and boasts a twin-turbo Ferrari-sourced V8 and a few extra features - most notably driver-assistance tech.
The base Maserati Levante GT has a price of $81,200. The Modena starts at $92,200, while F Tributo trims cost around $106,590. The twin-turbo V8 Modena S only comes in one trim and has an MSRP of $117,500. This excludes Maserati's delivery and destination charge of $1,495.
On the Levante GT, you can add one of three style packages. The GT Sport Package retails for $3,790 and adds GranSport front and rear fascias, 21-inch Helios wheels, gloss-dark composite trim, and gloss-red brake calipers. The GT Nerissimo Package is essentially a black-out package, adding black exterior accents and 20-inch black Nereo wheels - it costs $1,500. The GT Nerissimo Sport Package basically combines the previous two but equips 21-inch Anteo alloy wheels. There is also a Driver Assistance Package with the advanced safety systems including adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera, traffic sign recognition, active driving assist, and pedestrian recognition, for $1,700. The $1,290 Comfort & Convenience Package adds heated rear seats, a heated windshield, power-adjustable foot pedals, soft-close doors, an a memory function for the front seats.
The Comfort & Convenience and Driver Assistance packages are available on the Levante Modena as well. This trim's Nerissimo Modena Package's price drops to $1,100 compared to the GT Nerissimo Package, as the S already comes with some of the darker exterior features as standard. The Modena also gets the optional Sportivo Package with its memory front seats, Alcantara headliner and pillars, aluminum shift paddles, Inox sport pedals, and adaptive LED headlights. On the fully equipped Modena S, you can add only the Comfort & Convenience Package.
Base Models can have an upgraded Harman Kardon sound setup for $1,100, while heated rear seats are no longer available as a standalone extra, but only as part of the Comfort & Convenience Package on all trims. From this year, you can add the top-spec Bowers & Wilkins sound system for $2,500 on any of the trims. Four-zone automatic climate control costs $1,100 and is only available for the Modena trims.
To avoid disappointment, we'd advise you to stay away from the V6 models. The performance simply doesn't match the price. We'd go for the Modena S for that full Italian effect. That Ferrari-sourced twin-turbo V8 makes a big difference, and you get to say that you've got Ferrari power in your SUV. The Modena S also comes standard with the Harman Kardon sound system, the extended leather package, adaptive LED headlights, and a suite of driver-assistance features that costs extra on the V6s.
