The 2019 lineup for Maserati isn’t being expanded by any freshly introduced models since the second crossover won’t be ready until 2020. Even though the lineup originates from the early 2010s, there is still plenty of fresh pizzazz for these vehicles. When visiting a dealership, especially a Maserati Manhattan dealer, there are a few things you want to keep an eye out for.
2019 Levante GTS and Trofeo
The Maserati Levante is one of the best premium SUVs on the market and one of the best selling vehicles in the U.S. for the brand. The interior has premium leather and wood veneers. Every Levante SUV has both convenience and safety tech included. The newest model editions, the GTS and the Trofeo, have plenty of premium features. The GTS offers a special selection of 20, 21 or 22-inch wheels, along with optional Pieno Fiore leather for the interior. The Trofero offers 22-inch wheels and a Bowers and Wilkins sound system. The entry level of the Levante has a 345 horsepower engine, and the S has a 424 horsepower engine, but the Trofero and GTS have a larger 3.8L twin turbocharged engine. This upgraded engine gives 550 horsepower in the GTS and 590 in the Trofeo. The same engine is also in the Quattroporte, but the Levante’s version is revised with reworked valves, pistons, and connecting rods. Both models will have available four-wheel power. The GTS can accelerate from 0 to 60 in four seconds, while the Trofeo can do the same in 3.7 seconds.
The Quattroporte is one of the most practical Maserati vehicles out in the U.S. It’s also the oldest one since it was introduced in 1963. This luxury four-door sedan has been refined since this model was introduced in 2012. For the 2019 model, there is an updated infotainment system, which adds to the already tech-savvy cabin. Some of the advanced safety features include automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. The Quattroporte offers a choice between two potent engines. The first gives you 424 horsepower and takes about five seconds to get to 60 mph. the more powerful engines gives 523 horsepower and only requires 4.6 seconds to get to 60 mph.
The Ghibli is related to the Quattroporte and offers four doors with a sedan body style and the same platform. It is 6.8 inches shorter than the Quattroporte, so it doesn’t have as much legroom in the back. This car comes with a single engine choice and is powered by a V6 that uses the Chrysler Penastar V6 as a template. This gives 345 horsepower, but the S and SQ4 can have an upgraded version that gives 434 horsepower.
