Fiat Chrysler is in the middle of a Maserati makeover. Last week we had a chance to experience the Levante in person at the Greenwich Concours, and it was a show stopper. Along with a few updates to the Ghibli, 2017 welcomes a restyled Quattroporte. Much in the same way Ghibli’s options will be split between luxury and sport, Quattoporte’s new looks are augmented by two trim levels.
GranLusso is the luxury package which offers a cleaner exterior thanks to body-colored rocker panels and rear fascia. For the interior, Maserati turned to Ermenegildo Zegna for the best in materials. Only the finest silk was procured for the seats, door panels and visors. Open pore wood and powered sun shades along with four-zone climate control are the other highlights of GranLusso.
For those who value performance over comfort, GranSport has more aggressive air inlets and 21″ wheels. The exterior trades body colored accents for gloss black, along with red brake calipers. Inside the wood trim is piano black with heavily bolstered sport seats. Additional options for GranSport are carbon fiber trim and stainless pedals.
As before, engines are built by Ferrari to ensure the best in acceleration. The 3.8L twin turbo from the California T offers 530 hp along with a 3.0L V6 twin-turbo V6 which is good for 410 hp. GTS models will have standard V8 power, with the V6 reserved for the S. Ordering is now available for the new sedan, so expect to see them arrive by the end of summer.
