Today’s automotive industry is pretty specific, specific in that way that even exotic carmakers are forced to make SUVs. We’ve already seen such vehicles from brands like Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Bentley and the time has finally come for Ferrari to do the same thing. The new model will most likely come as the 2022 Ferrari Purosangue and we expect to see it sometime late in the next year or in early 2022.
At this point, we don’t know too many details about this SUV. The testing model has been spotted but still hides a lot. Still, we have no doubt that his model will be all about performances. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t be practical enough, at least for a Ferrari.
2022 Ferrari Purosangue Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the famous Italian carmaker still hides most details about the 2022 Ferrari Purosangue SUV. However, the test model has been spotted on the road and while the whole body is still covered with camouflage, we can clearly see the silhouette. Although details are still hidden, we can see the overall shape, which is extremely sleek for this segment of cars. From our perspective, this looks more like a hatchback than an SUV, especially when you look at the ground clearance.
Mechanically, the new model will be based on Ferrari’s new mid-front engine platform. It’s the same one that is used for models like Portofino, Roma and 812 Superfast. You may expect a pretty long hood, while the overall size won’t be that big. Moreover, it will probably be notably smaller compared to models like Maserati Levante, Lamborghini Urus etc. Simply, this SUV will be all about performance, which means it will be compact, light and super-maneuverable.
Despite the size, this SUV will be able to accommodate four adults. We also count on a decent cargo area. If you look at the spy shots, you can notice that the test model features quite short rear doors, which indicates that Ferrari may use some pretty interesting design solutions. This leads us to suicide-style, rear-hinged rear doors, designed in the same manner as those in the Mazda RX-8.
When it comes to the 2022 Ferrari Purosangue interior design, it is still early to talk about details. Still, we have no doubt that the dashboard will come in a typical Ferrari manner, with lots of fine leather, carbon fiber and similar materials. Of course, we also count on a pretty impressive list of tech features.
2022 Ferrari Purosangue Engine
When it comes to powertrain, a lot of options are in the game. One of the engines that come to mind is a 3.9-liter V8, which would receive some serious modifications for this occasion, in order to provide some pretty serious numbers. Other sources suggest larger V8 options, as well as a non-hybrid version of the V12 engine we saw in LaFerrari.
The 2022 Ferrari Purosangue specs are still a mystery, but Ferrari knows very well what numbers it has to beat. Of course, we are talking about key rivals, such as Lamborghini Urus, which puts out 641 horsepower. We should also mention Bentley Bentayga with around 626 horsepower, as well as the Aston Marting DBX, which features an engine that is good for about 542 horsepower.
2022 Ferrari Purosangue Release Date and Price
The new model is still in the testing phase, so it’s hard to talk about some more precise data. However, our reliable sources suggest that this supercar-SUV will certainly arrive in 2022. We know for sure that it won’t be cheap. The base 2022 Ferrari Purosangue price is expected to go around 350.000 dollars.
