A new report coming out of Italy from Unica Strada suggests that Maserati’s new Kubang SUV will carry the ‘Cinqueporte’ nameplate.
The report states that Maserati has filed a patent application in Europe for the ‘Cinqueporte’ name which leads us to believe that’s probably the name it will use for its five-door SUV.
Whatever they want to call it – it’s much better than Kubang.

While the SUV will be based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee platform, most of the design and development work will be taken care of by Maserati. The final design will be put together by a team led by Lorenzo Ramaciotti. Engine choices will be put together in Modena by Paolo Martinelli – Head of the Maserati Powertrain Department who has worked for nearly 30 years at Ferrari. The engine will be mated to an 8 speed automatic transmission that will be developed in Modena as well.
We’re waiting patiently.
