Maserati Ghibli 5-Series Rival Coming Early Next Year
text size: A- A+
The same approach will go into making the new Ghibli, Maserati’s smaller sedan offering, which is set to rival the might of the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class or the Jaguar XF. It will be shorter than the Quattroporte, measuring around the five meters in length.
It will most likely be underpinned by a Chrysler-sourced platform - probably the one in the Chrysler 300 and the Dodge Charger. Under the bonnet, it will most likely get petrol and diesel V6 engines, with turbochargers, as well as a range topping 3.8-liter turbocharged V8 from Ferrari, which pumps out around 490 hp.
However, we say that if they really want to make a mark in the sector, they need a good four-pot engine, to at least try to match the highly-efficient and very quick four-cylinder-powered 5-Series models which are extremely good. All-wheel drive is also a possibility.
