The Maserati Ghibli has made its world premiere at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, making it official that Maserati will have two four-door sedans on sale at the same time in its history.
That’s not the only first for Maserati either as the Ghibli will also be the first Maserati production car in history to be powered by a diesel engine. The 3.0-liter V6 turbo-diesel engine has 275 hp while delivering 443 lb-ft of torque allowing it to accelerate to 62 mph in 6.3 seconds.
Ghibli buyers will also have the choice of two 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engines with the more powerful of the two delivering 410 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. The other offers 330 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
The Ghibli will have its sight set on competing with the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, though its pricing will land it as a high-end competitor. It will be available in either rear-wheel drive or Maserati’s new Q4 all-wheel drive system.
