Vehicle Overview

Maserati’s Ghibli midsize sport sedan competes against the likes of the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Powered by a choice of twin-turbo V-6 engines, the Ghibli is available with rear- or all-wheel drive.
New for 2016
A new rear-wheel-drive version of the S trim level features the 404-horsepower V-6 engine. Maserati claims to have improved engine efficiency and consumption by up to 12 percent without a drop in performance, and engine stop-start technology is now included. A blind spot warning system and rear cross-traffic alert are now available, as is a hands-free power trunk lid and a Harman Kardon stereo.

Great car! Can't wait to

With over 40K miles, my Ghibli SQ4 is still running super smooth. Love this car...both styling and driving. No significant mechanical issues. I did run into a "turbo under-boost" code this year, but it was related to a worn seal in one of the duct(?) tubes. Anyhow, it was a $350 job via an honest local mechanic (not a dealer). In terms of driver technology engagement, the '16 Ghibli isn't perfect and I wish it was more tech-forward features. However, this would not have dissuaded me from buying the car. :) My wife's 2015 BMW 5-Series doesn't have Apple CarPlay either...but we survive.


great car for thrill seekers

the ride is great, excellent value for car, classic collection, they don't make cars like theses anymore, value for money, great color combination, the suspension is great


good car

I like this car. Comfortable interior, quiet engine noise, fast speed. A great option for a family. if you want a good value for money, this is a great option.
