Ferrari launch of an SUV in 2022
Despite the denial by Ferrari, about the possible development of an SUV, it has just know that the Cavallino Rampante brand succumbed to the success of this type of vehicles in the world market and decided to enter the world of Sport Utility Vehicle, in which most of its competitors already have a representative.
The complicated thing now is to conceive a truck with the DNA of the sports of the Italian brand. Still, it has known that the project is already underway, under the code name 175 and that it will be part of the group of 15 new releases announced by Ferrari for the next three years.
The technical director of Ferrari, Michael Leiters, has revealed details such as that the SUV that is part of a family called Purosangue. It will back by the scalable architecture of the front central motor that can support V6, V8, and V12 impellers, with the possibility of being combined with electric motors.
This platform is quite versatile because it can withstand rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, as well as two- and four-seat cab configurations, which fits perfectly with the development of a four-position SUV.
It has also known that this SUV will have an adjustable height suspension and an advanced anti-tip system to improve its behavior inside and outside the pavement.
In addition to the mechanical, technological, and possible production of plug-in hybrid versions, Leiters has said that one of the many challenges facing Ferrari is the optimal development of the interior and its headlight system such as h7 led bulb for the low beam of the vehicle. Since there, they have to combine aspects such as ergonomics, sports design, and comfort, among others, oriented to the driver but integrating the man-machine interface.
It is undoubtedly a great challenge, but the time has come for Cavallino Rampante to catch up with Toro Bravo de Lamborghini, who has just successfully rolled his SUV Urus.
