The upcoming 2021 Ferrari Purosangue is the company’s first SUV ever. This high-riding model will be unveiled at the beginning of 2021, and it has been dubbed as FUV (Ferrari Utility Vehicle). Everything started with the slogan “Ferrari, for the whole family”. Thanks to that, we believe Purosangue will offer a room for either five or seven passengers and the interior will be spacious.
However, Ferrari just can’t avoid sportiness so that we can expect a combination of a family-oriented and high-performance model. Purosangue will ride on a newly developed architecture that can accommodate various V6, V8 and V12 engine options. Some details are yet unknown, but here’s what we know so far.
2021 Purosangue – Exterior is Based on Roma Concept
The all-new 2021 Ferrari Purosangue will ride on a company’s brand-new platform. The same architecture has been presented on Roma Concept. To this date, the Italian carmaker didn’t say anything about the SUV’s design. We don’t know its dimensions, its shape nor its styling. On the other hand, Ferrari did say Purosangue will be a high-riding SUV or FUV (Ferrari Utility Vehicle).
If Purosangue is completely based on the Roma Concept, then we can expect a coupe-like form and extremely futuristic and sporty appearance. However, the latest renderings are showing a more traditional shape that looks like a real SUV.
Luxury Interior and a Room for Five Passengers
According to the latest reports, a new 2021 Ferrari Purosangue will be a five-seat SUV. However, we can expect a seven-seat version in the near future as well. Italian giant described its new model as a perfect family vehicle. Moreover, competition will be strong. With that in mind, Purosangue will compete against Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus. Furthermore, a new company’s SUV will surely provide a high level of luxury inside the cabin. A flat-bottom steering wheel is certain, along with the unique Alcantara and leather upholstery.
As for the interior design, Ferrari remains silent. On the other hand, we saw a Roma concept, and Italian automaker will surely apply a couple of Roma’s cues. That includes center console and dashboard design. A large touchscreen will be available on the base trim level. Moreover, upper trims will get an even bigger unit, and rear passengers will surely enjoy in two smaller displays. The cabin will be spacious, no doubt about it and Purosangue will provide a really luxurious interior.
Possible Engine Options and Hybrid Powertrain
Logically, a hybrid powertrain is the most reasonable outcome. The 2021 Ferrari Purosangue will offer one, but exact specifications are not available, yet. The new platform can accommodate everything from V6 and V8 to V12 and hybrid outputs. With that in mind, customers can opt for a more conventional gasoline powertrain as well. The most likely candidate is a 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated unit.
This engine delivers between 600 and 650 horsepower. If Purosangue gets this engine, expect a top speed to be rated at 190 mph. Additionally, this SUV will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds. All-wheel-drive setup will be offered as standard. As for the hybrid option, Ferrari will build one, but probably on a smaller displacement.
2021 Ferrari Purosangue Price and Release Date
The brand-new 2021 Ferrari Purosangue will go on sale at the beginning of 2021. Newest Italian SUV will compete against Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga. For that reason, Ferrari will price its new model between $250,000 and $300,000. After all, its Ferrari, expect a lot of luxury and superb performances.
