Ferrari Purosangue 2022 crossover: everything we know about the new model so far.
The first ever Ferrari SUV: new information.

For many years, Ferrari argued that they would never undertake the construction of an SUV, and the production of a sports hybrid is generally a taboo, in their nightmares they never dreamed of! It is not clear whether they were so naive, or whether they really believed in their own special path, but fate or providence decreed otherwise.

In August 2017, Sergio Marchionne, who was then chairman of the board of directors, confirmed to shareholders that the SUV ended up on the Italian automaker’s development work cards.

And in September 2018, the head of the Ferrari marketing department, Enrico Galliera, again made it clear that the wildest guesses are not guesses, but the fact of the presence of an SUV in the production plans of the Italian company. He even gave him a name: Purosangue, which in Italian means «purebred».

More than a year has passed since then. And over 400 days, the first SUV from Ferrari has acquired new details. Let’s see what we know about the new Ferrari at the moment.

Don’t call him an SUV. Ferrari Purosangue 2022. 

In a 2018 interview with Top Gear, Marchionne called the upcoming Ferrari sports utility vehicle «FUV», or Ferrari Utility Vehicle.

Obviously, by doing so, he wanted the brainchild of his company to stand out among all kinds of Bentayg, Cayenne, DBX and Uruses from around the world.

It would seem a whim of an individualist — but no, it turns out that the representatives of the brand continued to use the idea and also called the SUV under development «FUV», promoting the idea that the Purosangue will be in its own league.

“This is how Ferrari thinks a new car should look like,” Marchionne told Top Gear, adding: “Look, by definition he will drive like a Ferrari, he simply must. We don’t know how to do otherwise. »

Galliera added in 2018 about the first SUV in the lineup, tentatively titled Purosangue, that “it will be 100 percent Ferrari.” «It will certainly be able to give the same driving experience, but in many places and with a lot of passengers.»

The platform will be shared with Roma.

In September 2018, Ferrari announced a new front-engined modular platform that will form the basis for the next generations of the line. Production will start with the Roma model.

So, this platform will receive its first baptism in the Portofino SUV. Also, the technical basis will be used in the new Purosangue models, Gallier shared his plans with Auto Express magazine at the end of 2019.

Technically, this means that the engine will be positioned behind the front axle line, while the gearbox will be mounted in the rear in a transaxel format.

Most likely it will be powered by a twin-turbo V8

Colleagues from Car and Driver magazine predict the Purosangue will get thrust from a twin-turbo V8. This is probably a 612-horsepower version of the 3.8-liter unit, which fans following the company’s new products could already contemplate in the Roma model.

We’ll wager the engine will have a little more power potential, which should help the car handle the extra weight and pull itself up to the level of its top-tier competitors. However, this has not yet been officially confirmed.

Hybrid technology likely to hit the car

Ferrari says that in the future, about 60 percent of its car lineup will receive hybrid technology by 2022. The company already launched its first-ever production hybrid SF90 Stradale in May 2019.

Since the Purosangue will launch in early 2021, it is likely that we will see some kind of electric assistance in the car’s standard powertrain. Whether this means a full installation with full battery support or a soft 48-volt system remains to be seen.

This novelty will be very expensive.
