Maserati SUV to Be Built in Detroit
According to Detroit News, Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said the SUV will be built at the Chrysler Jefferson North Assembly Plant and exported to other markets. The production should start in 2013, with the annual output set to hit 20,000 units.
The Maserati SUV rides on the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s platform, but the Italian brand brags that it will transform the vehicle in order to be worthy of its badge. The production version of the vehicle will ditch the “Kubang” designation and should be called “Cinqueporte” (five doors).
