Maserati Ghibli looks as elegant and sporty, fresh and extraordinary as the day it made its World Premiere in the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.
The Maserati Ghibli GranLusso and Ghibli GranSport trims feature standard Adaptive Full LED Matrix headlights
“We wanted to distinguish between luxury and sportiness more clearly, and to give a double soul to the exterior of the car”, says Giovanni Ribotta, Maserati Head of Exterior Design.
There is a choice of eleven body colours in the MY19 Ghibli range. There is also a choice of ten alloy wheels in six different designs in sizes ranging from 18 to 21-inch. A wheel design is brand new for MY19, the 20-inch Teseo, which is available in light and dark finish.
The 350hp Ghibli and the Ghibli Diesel are standard equipped with 235/50 R18 front and rear tyres. The Maserati Ghibli S and S Q4 versions feature wider 275/45 R18 rear tyres and 235/50 R18 front tyres.
TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)is available as standard on all Ghibli versions.
The interior is built around an intuitive, uncluttered and user-friendly driver interface. The instrument panel features large analogue gauges for the tachometer and speedometer, alongside a 7″ TFT display.
The driver’s seat offers 6-way electric adjustment, while the GranLusso and GranSport trims both have standard 12-way power front seats.
A standard 8-speaker, 280W audio system by Harman Kardon is available on the baseline Maserati Ghibli and on the Ghibli GranSport. Harman Kardon Premium Sound System: The Ghibli GranLusso S and S Q4 have adopted the Harman Kardon Premium Sound System with 10 speakers and a 900W amplifier.
A Maserati 3.0-litre Twin Turbo V6 petrol engine, featuring the latest Gasoline Direct Injection technology, and a powerful V6 Turbodiesel with the same capacity form the beating heart of the Ghibli sports sedan.
The 2,979 cc V6 petrol engine – available in two power specifications with 350hp and 430hp – is designed by Maserati Powertrain in collaboration with Ferrari and is manufactured by Ferrari in Maranello.
The Ghibli features three driving modes, Normal, Sport and I.C.E. for Increased Control & Efficiency. I.C.E. mode is aimed at reducing consumption, emissions and noise.
The range-topping Ghibli S and S Q4 versions deliver 430hp and 580 Nm peak torque. The maximum engine speed is 6,500 rpm, yet it delivers its peak torque between 2,250 rpm and 4,000 rpm. The class-leading power output gives the Maserati sports sedan a top speed of 286 km/h and remarkable acceleration: Ghibli S makes it to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and the Ghibli S Q4, with the intelligent Q4 All-Wheel Drive system, in just 4.7 seconds.

Pictures 2019 Maserati Ghibli
Maserati Ghibli is the name of three different cars produced by Italian manufacturer Maserati: the AM115, a V8 grand tourer from 1966 to 1973; the AM336, a V6 twin-turbo coupéfrom 1992 to 1997; and the M157, an executive saloon from 2013 on.
Ghibli is the name for the hot dry south-westerly wind of the Libyan desert.
The current third generation Ghibli (Tipo M157) was unveiled at the 2013 Shanghai motor show. The Ghibli is offered with three different 3.0-litre V6 engines: a twin-turbocharged 330 PS (240 kW; 330 hp) or 410 PS (300 kW; 400 hp) petrol and a 275 PS (202 kW; 271 hp) turbodiesel, making the Ghibli the first Maserati production car to be powered by a diesel engine. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models; all wheel drive is available with the most powerful V6, although not in right hand drive markets.
