Maserati is letting a few more details out of the bag in regards to its upcoming sedan and the brand’s first SUV.

A Maserati SUV was rumored to be called the Kubang, but new information today indicates that the actual name will be the Maserati Levante. The Levante should hit production in 2014, and will be made in the US thanks to Maserati’s ties with Fiat and Chrysler. The Levante will share the underpinnings of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

In addition, Maserati has also unveiled plans for a new E-Class fighting sedan, named the Ghibli. The Ghibli is a four-door sedan which is going to make its debut next spring at either the Geneva or Shanghai auto show.

The Ghibli should be smaller in size to the Maserati Quattroporte, which will continue to be the brand’s flagship sedan. The Quattroporte will be redesigned and revealed at the Detroit auto show in January.

Both the Quattroporte and Ghibli are expected to be produced in Italy.
