Maserati excels at blending its sporting roots with unsurpassed luxury and Italian style. The all-new Ghibli furthers that trend, and the midsize luxury sport sedan offers the complete package.
Two models are offered: a base rear-wheel-drive Ghibli and an all-wheel-drive Ghibli S Q4. Both are powered by a Ferrari-built, twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6. In the base model it delivers 345 horsepower, while the S Q4 benefits from special camshafts, more boost and more aggressive engine management. The result is 404 horsepower. Both models utilize an 8-speed automatic transmission with five different shift modes. The base car scoots to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, while the sure-footed S Q4 hits the mark in just 4.6 seconds, on its way to a 177 mph top speed.
The appeal of the Ghibli begins outside, with elegant design that recalls the sedan's older sibling, the Quattroporte. Underneath the lovely steel and aluminum skin, the Ghibli rides on a solid chassis sprung by an alloy suspension with double wishbones up front and a multi-link setup in the rear, with stopping handled competently by Brembo brakes. Maserati claims the base Ghibli offers a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.
Standard equipment on the Ghibli includes 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, keyless entry and ignition, leather upholstery with 6-way power seats, a heated tilt/telescopic steering wheel, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, rearview camera and an 8-speaker audio system. S Q4 models add adaptive headlights, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, a power sunroof and more.
Several options and packages allow for a fully customized Ghibli. Skyhook adaptive suspension offers driver-selectable Normal and Sport modes that reduce body roll. A 15-speaker, 1,280-watt Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system provides exceptional auditory stimulation, and a WI-FI system means you never have to disconnect. Navigation is available, as are several leather and wood grain choices, heated and ventilated front seats, plus a range of alloy wheels from 19 to 21 inches.

Long List Of Options
The Ghibli is an all-new model from Maserati for 2014. It revives a classic name used twice previously by the Italian automaker. The midsize luxury sport sedan is available with either rear- or all-wheel drive and features an 8-speed transmission mated to a turbocharged 3.0L V6 that delivers between 345 and 404 horsepower, depending on the model.
The new Ghibli is EPA rated at a combined 19 mpg, while the Ghibli S Q4 returns 18 mpg. Pricing starts at $66,900.
The Ghibli is a smaller sedan for Maserati, when compared to their Quattroporte. The Ghibli is their first such entry into a class populated by German and American entries such as the BMW 550i, Mercedes-Benz CLS550, and Cadillac CTS V. The Ghibli is distinctly Italian, however, with an unmistakable profile that recalls its elegant larger sibling, the Quattroporte. Power and handling are ample, particularly in the sure-footed all-wheel-drive Ghibli S Q4 model, while tasteful interior appointments assure that driver and passengers alike travel in luxurious comfort.
