Maserati excels at blending its sporting roots with unsurpassed luxury and Italian style. The 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 up-level Ghibli S, and an all-wheel-drive Ghibli S Q4. All are powered by a Ferrari-built, twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6. In the base model it delivers 345 horsepower, while the S and S Q4 benefits from special camshafts, more boost and more aggressive engine management, resulting in 404 horsepower. All 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 Ghibli's elegant design is meant to 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. The brakes are from Brembo. Maserati claims the base Ghibli offers a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Standard equipment 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 in sizes ranging from 19 to 21 inches.
