At the Chengdu Motor Show 2017 Maserati have unveiled the new Ghibli in two different trims - GranLusso and GranSport. The 3.0 V6 diesel engine remains unchanged, but the Ferrari-built 3.0 V6 Twin Turbo petrol engine on the Ghibli S will be increased by 20bhp and 30Nm of torque compared to the previous unit.
Aesthetic changes accentuate the Ghibli's elegance and sportiness. With a new front grille and changes to the rear and bumpers, this has substantially improved aerodynamic efficiency, giving the two trims a strong identity in line with Maserati's brand positioning.

GranLusso's dashboard is draped in open-pore Radica wood. There's also heated front and rear seats, four-zone climate control and an electric rear blind for privacy and more comfort.
The GranLusso features a new front bumper with dedicated chrome inserts and a new front grille with chrome bars.
