New for 2011
There are no significant changes for 2011.

Exterior
Maserati teamed with Italian design company Pininfarina to style the GranTurismo. The car features a wide oval grille, a long nose and a short rear. It sits low to the ground and has a very sleek profile overall. Exterior features include:

  • 19-inch wheels; 20-inch wheels available
  • Three air inlets behind front fender
  • Rear LED taillights
  • Grille features vertical concave slats
  • Chrome exhaust tailpipes
  • Adaptive bi-xenon headlights
  • Optional colored brake calipers

Interior
Maserati cloaks the interior in high-quality leather and wood and puts chrome accents on the dashboard. There's seating for four people; Maserati says two adults fit comfortably in the backseat. Interior features include:

  • Navigation system with 7-inch screen features a hard drive for storing music
  • Rear parking sensors standard; front sensors optional
  • Numerous interior material options, including Alcantara simulated-suede headliner and wood trim

Under the Hood
Maserati says the GranTurismo coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in about 5 seconds and reach a top speed of 177 mph. Mechanical features include:

  • 405-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-8 with 339 pounds-feet of torque
  • Six-speed automatic transmission with four operating modes and paddle shifters
  • Skyhook adaptive suspension automatically adjusts shock-absorber firmness for different driving and road conditions

Safety
Safety features include:

  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Front and side-impact airbags

GranTurismo S
If the regular GranTurismo isn't exotic or fast enough for you, the GranTurismo S serves as a high-performance version featuring more power, bigger brakes and exterior modifications to increase performance. Other details include:

  • 433-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 with 361 pounds-feet of torque
  • Six-speed automatic transmission differs from base GranTurismo's in a way meant to provide better daily drivability
  • Side and rear-lip spoilers add balance through aerodynamics
  • 20-inch wheels feature seven-spoke design
  • Blacked-out grille
  • Interior upholstered in leather and Alcantara Back to top

GranTurismo Convertible
Known in most other markets as the Maserati GranCabrio, the GranTurismo convertible uses the 433-hp V-8 from the GranTurismo S, but because of the additional weight of a convertible structure, its zero-to-60-mph acceleration drops slightly to 5.3 seconds. Its top speed is 176 mph. Other details include:

  • Power-folding soft-top works in 24 seconds
  • Trunk volume uncompromised whether the top is up or down
  • Pop-up rollover bars Back to top

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
