The updated 2018 Maserati Ghibli has been spied partly camouflaged. The amazing and highly luxurious sports mid-size sedan seems to follow footsteps of the larger Quattroporte that recently came refreshed.
The exterior changes won’t be too big and significant, but they will definitely keep the Ghibli fresh and interesting. We can’t see the exact differences, but it appears that the car sports a redesigned grille and new side skirts. Both the front and rear bumpers are updated and possibly larger, while the rear end also features different rear diffuser and reworked exhaust tips. The 2018 Maserati Ghibli will get two new trim levels, which will sport some special treatment such as bigger wheels, sport steering wheel inside, and red brake calipers.
We don’t expect anything new inside. The handsome sedan already received a completely redesigned dash last year, so there is no need for any changes. However, the carmaker decided to add active safety for the first time. So-called Driver Assistance system will include blind side assists, adaptive cruise control, and auto breaking.
The vehicle will use today’s engine, but there will be more blood in the veins without any doubt. An updated twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 mill will be able to deliver 350 horsepower and 367 lb-ft of twist. As for the 2018 Ghibli S, our insider claims it will pump out 450 horsepower. Both options will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Stay tuned for updates.
