At first glance, the Ferrari Purosangue's design does not resemble any conventional SUV. The height of the SUV seems much less than other models as it sits lower, more like a sports car. The front face of the Purosangue SUV resembles that of the Ferrari Roma, with which it shares the same platform.
The lower part of the SUV shows a uniquely designed fender. The large wheel arches also stand out. At the rear, the design of the Purosangue SUV appears more similar to the one that is also seen on the 296 GTB.
Ferrari is likely to offer the Purosangue SUV with a hybrid powertrain, with an internal combustion engine at the front axle and an electric motor at the rear. According to reports, the Purosangue SUV will have a 3.9-litre twin-turbo petrol engine under the hood. The same engine is also used in the Roma and F8 Tributo. The 2023 Ferrari Purosangue SUV is also likely to get all-wheel drive option with a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
