Ferrari just gave the public a first look at their first SUV, the Purosangue. It’s also their first four-door production car. The Purosangue comes with a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 715 horsepower. It is expected to cost around $400,000 and it will start shipping in the US at the end of 2023.

The Purosangue, according to Ferrari, isn’t a SUV, even though it looks like one. Instead, it is their first four-door four-seater that will be an extension of their sports car lineup, albeit in a new form factor that will help to enhance the comfort of the car. The Ferrari Purosangue comes with a 6.5-liter V12 engine, which is sort of similar to what a lot of famous Ferraris come with. The expected price of the Purosangue is around $400,000. When it’s released in 2023, it will most likely lock horns against the Lamborghini Urus, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and Bentley Bentayga Speed.

The Ferrari Purosangue comes standard with a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine, which guarantees its position in the Ferrari bloodline. The engine has a rev limit of 8250 rpm and produces 715 horsepower, which is more than its competitors.

But the non-turbo V12 lags behind when it comes to torque, as it only produces 528 pound-feet of torque. According to Ferrari, 80 percent of the torque will be available at 2100 rpm. The power peak is available at 7750 rpm and the torque peak is available at 6250 rpm.

According to Ferrari’s claims, the Purosangue has a top speed of 193 MPH and can go from 0-60 MPH in 3.3 seconds. This would make it one of the fastest SUVs in the world.

The Ferrari Purosangue has an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It also comes equipped with the unconventional all-wheel-drive technology that was first employed on the FF and later on the GTC4 Lusso. It only works in the first four gears and up to 124 MPH. Above this speed, the car only has rear-wheel drive.

Some other features that come as standard on the Perusangue are: rear-wheel steering, stability control, ABS programming, and the Side Slip Control system, which manages the traction control. The Purosangue also comes equipped with an "active suspension system" that aids in maintaining control of the car's body when making quick, sharp turns.

To further help their case of the Purosangue not being a SUV, they have compared the engineering of this car to typical SUVs. The large 715-horsepower V12 engine found in the Purosangue has been positioned further back behind the front wheels, compared to other SUVs, in order to achieve an impressive front/rear weight distribution of 49/51.

Although Ferrari has produced four-seat vehicles in the past, these vehicles have often been two-door designs with back seats that are better suited for short excursions rather than frequent use. The Purosangue is the first Ferrari model to feature four full-sized, fully adjustable seats. All four of these seats are heated seats, with the front one having an additional massage function.

The dashboard features the same digital display as other Ferrari cars. This includes a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster for the driver and a second screen for the front passenger "that provides all the information essential to enable them to engage in the driving experience," according to Ferrari. 

The steering wheel of the Purosangue has the well-known Mannetino drive-mode controller, along with numerous other buttons and knobs. There will be a variety of leather, Alcantara, and carbon-fiber trim options. The car comes with a carbon-fiber roof as standard, but you can instead choose a glass roof with electrochromic tint controls.

The Purosangue, unlike other comparable vehicles, lacks a rear windshield wiper and relies on airflow to maintain a clean back glass. The car's tiny headlights are surrounded by air vents on both sides.

The new Ferrari Purosangue goes on sale in 2023, and shipping will commence towards the end of 2023. That being said, it will be a difficult car to acquire because not only is the rumored price around $400,000, but first dibs on the new Purosangue has already been given to existing Ferrari owners around the world.

The Ferrari Purosangue's main rivals will most likely be the Lamborghini Urus, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and Bentley Bentayga Speed. The Cullianan costs $325,000, and it is the only competitor to the Purosangue when it comes to price. The Urus and the Bentayga Speed are considerably cheaper than the Purosangue, with each of them having a starting price of $218,150 and $262,125, respectively.
