Maserati‘s Porsche Cayenne fighter will reportedly get a more appropriate name when it heads to production, with the Italian automaker reportedly filing papers with the Italian patent office to use the badge, “Cinqueporte” on its new SUV. With the concept called the Kubang, Cinqueporte, meaning “five doors”, is a rather obvious choice and works with the brand’s volume model, the Quattroporte.
Unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show, Maserati execs have been clear that the sport utility’s final name may not be Kubang.
Based on the same running gear as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Mercedes ML it’s unclear exactly what engine will power the super-ute, with rumors ranging from a version of the 4.7-liter Italian V8 to a Chrysler-sourced HEMI.
