Maserati Ghibli Packs 2 Turbocharged Petrol Engines

When the Maserati Ghibli concept first emerged, news that it would be produced was changed so many times that it nearly became a joke. Now that the Ghibli is a certain reality–it should be known that it is packing in the power department with 2 turbocharged petrol engines. While it appears more subdued than its sleeker and sportier predecessors, it has some perks of its own.

Maserati Ghibli The Maserati Ghibli is the brand’s very first premium E Segment saloon and will be available by the end of this year. It is dramatically different from its sportier siblings, opening opportunities to target a new market segment.

The Maserati Ghibli adds a little pressure on the pedal for the brand’s goal to unload a staggering 50,000 cars by 2015. Not only is the Ghibli the start of a petrol range, it is a 4-door saloon offering. Because it is a bit smaller and lighter on the budget, the Ghibli has the potential to attract a new range of buyers, which would bode well with the brand’s lofty plans. Maserati Ghibli
