Ferrari Purosangue: What We Know So Far

The 2023 Ferrari Purosangue is more than an SUV — it’s the first SUV produced by Ferrari, a Ferrari Utility Vehicle, if you will. While Ferrari’s new SUV is sure to turn heads around Chicago if you’re out running errands, it’s a Ferrari. Performance and handling will be unlike any other vehicle in its class; it would feel just as welcome on the track as the road.

Defining the Ferrari Utility Vehicle (FUV)

The upcoming Ferrari Purosangue is the first vehicle of its kind, and calling it a simple SUV is limiting. Every vehicle produced in Maranello belongs in a class of its own, but each has developed imitators and competitors over the years. By combining Ferrari’s uncompromising performance and unique aesthetic, the Purosangue becomes the first vehicle of its kind. So we’re calling it an FUV, a spacious four-passenger utility vehicle with room for family or friends.

Michael Leiters, the Chief Technical Officer for Ferrari, said “[we’ve found] a concept and a package which is on one side a real SUV and will convince SUV customers to buy it, but on the other side there’s a huge differentiation of concept to existing SUVs.

What’s Under the Hood? 

We do not know yet. Car and Driver expects a turbocharged V8 (or potentially a V12) with all-wheel drive while Motor 1 thinks drivers should consider the possibility of a plug-in hybrid. Whatever is propelling the Purosangue forward, expect it to be a front-engine Ferrari thanks to the Roma platform.

Other high-performance SUVs should take note — expect vehicles like the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, and Aston Martin DBX to be dwarfed by the Purosangue.

When to Expect the Purosangue Release Date

As of right now, the Ferrari Purosangue is projected to be a 2023 model, which means we expect it to make a proper debut before the end of 2022.
