The Italy-based automaker, which is part of Stellantis, will introduce its latest creation to the North American market this summer as a 2023 model. The Grecale is named for a particular Mediterranean wind and uses the same platform as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Alfa is also a Stellantis brand. The base Grecale GT runs with a 300-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with electric assist. In the mid-trim Modena, it makes 330 horsepower. The top-end Trofeo will be fitted with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that originates with Maserati’s MC20 mid-engine supercar. In the MC20, it’s rated at 530 horsepower, but the engine will likely be detuned for the Greale. A battery-electric model called the Grecale Folgore is expected sometime in 2023.
