Report: Maserati SUV will be brand’s first diesel

To help compete in key European markets, higher-ups at Maserati have confirmed that its upcoming Kubang SUV will be offered with diesel power.

It is suspected that the Kubang may be borrowing the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s 237hp 3.0-liter V6 diesel. However, Maserati’s VP of product development Roberto Corradi remains tight-lipped on exactly which engine will be powering the model.

Corradi acknowledges that a diesel motor doesn’t exactly suit the brand, and says that to compensate, the automaker is attempting to figure out a way to use the SUV’s stereo system to add to the missing exhaust note.

We’ll find out for sure what Maserati ends up with in 2014 when the Kubang drops.
