2021 Maserati Model Year Changes



2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo

A new Ghibli Torfeo will introduce the 3.8 twin turbocharged V8 to the Ghibli. With 580 horsepower, it will be terrifyingly fast . For comparison, the Quattroporte GTS V8 makes 523, the Levante GTS 3.8 V8 makes 550 horsepower and the Levante Trofeo V8 makes 590. This powertrain has been rated by the EPA at 13 city and 20 highway, so it's not a crazy guzzler. The Trofeo will also benefit from larger brakes: 15 x 1.33 inches front and 13.6 x 1.1 inches rear, both ventialated and perforated for cooling.

Also on the way, a Ghibli Hybrid. At the opposite end of the spectrum, the Ghibli Hybrid will use a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder with a 48-volt mild hybrid system to provide more than 300 horsepower.

New "boomerang" tail lights freshen the Ghibli's exterior along with a lightly modified front grille.

Inside a much larger, frameless infotainment screen with curved edges takes center position. Measuring over ten inches diagonally, it touts higher resolution and now supports multi-touch user input. It is powered by an Android operating system. The gauge cluster is also improved; it retains two large, analog dials for tach and speed, but the display between the two has been improved, with higher resolution and a similar look to the new infotainment screen. A wireless charging pad is a new option.

Active Driving Assist improves the adaptive cruise control system with lane following available in more situations on roads other than large highways. It will still detect when the driver removes his hands from the wheel and deactivate.

The grille and rear taillights of the Levante are tweaked to held lend unity between the three mainstream models, Ghibli, Levante and Quattroporte, and to also show borrowed cues with the new supercar MC20.

The Levante also benefits from the same upgraded touchscreen infotainment system as the Ghibli. 

The top-of-the-line Trofeo is now almost $17,000 less expensive, starting at $154185 with destination.

Maserati hasn't produced a supercar since the MC12 (2004 - 2006), but now comes the MC20. With 621 horsepower from its 3.0 twin-turbocharged V6, it matches the output of the MC12's V12. A mid-engine design with rear-wheel drive and an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Both a convertible and an all-electric version will be coming later.

Quattroportes also receive visual changes to the grille and taillights for 2021.

A Quattroporte Trofeo will have a tuned-up version of the 3.8 V8 with 580 horsepower and 524 pound-feet of torque replaces the GTS with its 523 horsepower. Launch control is added to the bargain, which is still rear-wheel drive through an 8-speed automatic. As part of the Trofeo's exterior differentiation the Maserati portholes will have red accents.
