The Porsche Cayenne better get ready, because Maserati is all set to introduce a new SUV based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Word of the new model comes from none other than Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne.

“This is just a great architecture,” said Marchione to the Wall Street Journal. “Why wouldn’t I put a Maserati on it?”

The new Maserati SUV will be built starting in 2013 at the company’s Jefferson North assembly plant in Detroit.

The vehicle would be the fourth model in the Maserati lineup, joining the Quattroporte sedan, GranTurismo coupe and GranTurismo Convertible.
