    Maserati joins the SUV gang

    KU BANG!!!!


    Maserati Kubang SUV is imported from Detroit



    Turns out Europe's Photoshopping prognosticators didn't need to create a mockup of the upcoming Maserati SUV concept — the brand's first ever — from scratch. They could have simply dusted off an old Giugiaro design. Because that's what Maserati did — even giving it the same name of that 2003 SUV concept — the Kubang.

    While the original Kubang was a Giorgetto Giugiaro design, the update was done by Maserati's in-house designer Lorenzo Ramaciotti. Other than the exterior and the well-known reliance on the Jeep Grand Cherokee/Dodge Durango platform, Maserati would only say the Kubang will have an unspecified Maranello-built engine backed by an 8-speed transmission.

    First photo reminds me of some caricatures of the real car (Gran Turismo).

    Could not tell whether it is cute or ugly.
