Ferrari Crossover Reportedly Coming In 2021, Could Be A Hybrid

Sergio Marchionne has repeatedly said Ferrari will never build a crossover but those plans may have changed if Car Magazine is correct.

According to the publication, the automaker is actively working on a crossover and it is reportedly codenamed the F16X.

Designed to compete with the Aston Martin DBX and Lamborghini Urus, the crossover will resemble a “high-riding coupe” infused with Ferrari styling cues. The model is also rumored to have suicide rear doors and no traditional B-pillar.

The crossover is reportedly being developed alongside the GTC4 successor which is rumored to be launched in 2020. The crossover is slated to arrive one year later and ride on a lightweight aluminum platform.

Performance specifications remain a bit of a mystery but the report suggests the model will be offered with a V8 engine or a hybrid powertrain. All-wheel drive will come standard and the system will likely carryover from the GTC4 successor.

We’re taking the report with a grain of salt but insiders said the crossover will cost more than €300,000 ($342,135) and help Ferrari double its annual sales to round 16,000 units.

    The gtc4 covers this half of Ferrari so well in terms of practicality. Lamborghini is a bit more understanding since they had a suv/truck. People hate wagons but only so many can afford a Ferrari. If made I can see it being like the Volvo v90 here in the states. Where if you want one you have to put it on order than having to go to the dealership and looking through a dozen of them. If I remember correctly McLaren said the same they would coach build one but not mass produce one.

      “People hate wagons” – No. Americans hate wagons. In Europe, wagons outsell sedans. By far.

        I agree, I should have put that ^.

    I hope the SUV “fad” would have died by 2021.

    Marchionne has to be fired quickly, he cannot ruin the only healthy brand from FCA!!

  • LeStori

    Just because you can do something does not make it a good idea. Presumably Ferrari are intending to go mainstream and not be an exotic,highly desirable brand anymore… Just another Porsche wannabee.

      I hope that you do understand Porsche brand has been existed so far by the sales of Cayenne and Panamera.

      Ferrari needs more cash flow, so they want to have a SUV.

  • Vassilis

    Get the f out of here!

  • Honda NSX-R

    Didn’t they say they wouldn’t make one?

  • Benjamin B.

    You hear that? Enzo just shifted in his grave.

  • TheHake

    If it keeps the brand alive, I’m ok with it. Rather that than seeing the brand go under.
