We never thought we’d see the day a Ferrari SUV would become a reality, but in the wake of several successful high-dollar, high-performance sportscars, the company eventually succumbed to incredible market pressure and announced the 2024 Purosangue. be produced. However, the SUV with Ferrari’s prancing horse badge on the grille will not ruin the brand. After all, successful iterations of the concept have served sports-car brands like Porsche and Lamborghini quite well. It’s not only ultra-performance utes like the Cayenne Turbo or Urus that will be in Purosangue’s crosshairs, but also ultra-luxury models like the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. A mighty V-12 engine is the only powertrain offered – why would it need anything else? Engineers have beefed up the ride-and-handling of the ‘Sangue’ with a trick active suspension system to help it drive like a Ferrari. Expect to need a hedge-fund manager’s salary to afford it; Prices start just over $400,000 including the mandatory gas-guzzling tax.
What’s new for 2024?
The Purosangue is an all-new model for the Ferrari lineup as well as the Italian supercar maker’s first SUV.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Many luxury and performance features are standard in the Purosangue, but Ferrari does have a few options that buyers may want to consider. Massaging the front seats can be a nice thing to do after a long day of cruising the Monte Carlo coast, and sunseekers may be tempted by the available electrochromic glass roof. Either way, we’d suggest making liberal use of Ferrari’s personalization options to create a Purosangue puro You.
Engine, Transmission and Performance
For purists who scoff at SUVs wearing the famous prancing horse badge, we’ll point to the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine lurking under the Purosangue’s hood. Nothing says Ferrari more than a 715-hp twelve-cylinder screamer, and it wears the brand’s signature red-painted valve color, too. The engine makes 528 pound-feet of torque, and we estimate it will power the Purosangue to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph. We came away from our initial test drive quite impressed with the Purosangu’s handling and performance, dispelling any doubts we had that Ferrari’s first SUV would be flawless. An adaptive suspension system is standard and uses an electric motor in each corner of the SUV to apply force to the dampers during cornering maneuvers to control body roll. As such, the Purosangue has no need for traditional anti-roll bars, and can even lower its ride height by 0.4 inches during hard driving. Throughout the conversation, the Purosangue puts its best foot forward over its sports car siblings and it’s one that’s quite convincing.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
Say goodbye to your gas money: The V-12-powered Purosangue is one of Ferrari’s least fuel-efficient offerings. The EPA estimates it’s only good for 12 mpg city and 16 mpg highway, but for context, both the Urus and the 12-cylinder Bentayga earn similar ratings of 12 mpg city, 17 mpg highway. When we get a chance, we’ll take the Purosangu on its 75-mph highway fuel economy route and will update this story with its test results.

Interior, Comfort & Cargo
As the only current Ferrari to offer legitimate room for four riders, the Purosangue is outfitted with a set of clever rear-hinged coach-style (also known as “suicide”) seats that extend all the way to the rear seat. It is said to make it easy to reach. Preserving the appearance of the two doors. The front and rear seats are separate buckets, which sometimes means there is no bench in the back for a fifth passenger, and both rows have a center console and a center console. Of course, the interior is swathed in Ferrari-quality materials. To say that the cockpit is driver-oriented would be an understatement as most of the car’s controls are operated via the steering wheel; One big surprise in this age of tablet-style center-stack screens is that there’s no infotainment touchscreen at the center. A glass roof is optional but if you don’t care about seeing the sun while driving, sticking with the standard carbon-fibre roof panels will save some weight.
Infotainment & Connectivity
While there is no centrally mounted infotainment display, there is a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster and a separate 10.2-inch screen for the front passenger. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard but an in-dash navigation system isn’t offered – Ferrari assumes most people will use their phones for such a service.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The Purosangue comes standard with several driver-assistance features, including automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlamps and adaptive cruise control.
