Production version Maserati Kubang to bow in Detroit
When the Maserati Kubang concept SUV made its U.S. debut in Detroit earlier this year, it created quite a stir. Imagine a Detroit-built Jeep Grand Cherokee platform underneath and a Maserati body with a Ferrari-based engine under the hood. You can see why the Kubang will be getting even more attention as the sporty SUV is reported to be going to production soon.
Automotive News Europe says, the concept will be making its final appearance in Beijing before it is officially retired. Maserati sources say the next time we see the Kabang, it will be at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and it will be the production version and it will be getting a new name. "After Beijing, we will retire the Kubang concept. Our SUV will reappear in its production form and with its final name in due time," Maserati CEO Harald Wester told Automotive News Europe on the sidelines at the Beijing show.
