Maserati Ghibli Makes U.S. Debut in L.A., Still No Pricing Details

Following its world debut at the Shanghai Auto Show in April, the new Maserati Ghibli was introduced to the North American market at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The stand features the entire Ghibli range, a model which marks a turning point in Maserati’s history – for the first time ever Maserati has simultaneously two four-door sedan models in its lineup.

The Ghibli will be offered in the U.S. with a choice of two 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbocharged gasoline engines, mated to an automatic eight-speed transmission with either rear wheel drive or Q4 all-wheel-drive. The Ghibli S features the more powerful of the two engines, which produces 404 HP at 5,500 rpm and 406 lb-ft (550Nm) of torque from only 1,750 rpm.

When fitted with Q4 all-wheel drive, the Ghibli S sprints from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.7 seconds, while the RWD model takes is 0.2 seconds slower. Top speed for the Ghibli S Q4 is 175 mph (282 km/h).

The base model’s engine features 345hp and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque, pushing the Ghibli from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.5 seconds. Both engines feature parallel turbochargers and have been developed by Maserati Powertrain in collaboration with Ferrari Powertrain. Both are produced by Ferrari in Maranello. Maserati has yet to announce U.S. pricing for the Ghibli.

Another Maserati North American debut is the exclusive Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition concept that features an unique color scheme, mirror polished rims and an upgraded interior upholstered in fabrics made in cooperation with the prestigious Italian fashion house.
