There are three basic trims with special editions and various configurations thrown into the mix. The lineup includes the GT, Modena, Modena Q4, F Tributo, and F Tributo Q4. The GT's base powertrain features a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 producing 345 hp and 369 lb-ft. Stepping up to the Modena and Modena Q4 takes that power up to 424 hp using the same engine. F Tributo models have only aesthetic differences, with a limited color palette and exclusive badging setting them apart.
The standard specification includes dual-zone climate control, blind-spot assist, adaptive cruise control, a 10.1-inch infotainment system, keyless start, and an eight-speaker audio system. A sunroof is standard.
The Maserati Ghibli will cost you a pretty penny, but what else would you expect from an Italian exotic such as this? The price of a new Maserati Ghibli begins at $78,000 in the USA for the GT, excluding tax, registration, and a destination fee of $1,495. The Modena goes for an MSRP of $82,700, with the Q4's all-wheel drive adding another $2,600 to that. They're not a dime a dozen, but you'll be able to find a good used model for sale in the US in the $40k region. If you're willing to live with the older infotainment system, pricing for the 2020 Maserati Ghibli could save you a lot of money.
F Tributo models are rare and while the manufacturer hasn't issued official pricing for it, a $101,390 starting price seems standard for US dealerships, with the Q4 version naturally adding a few thousand on top of that for the all-wheel drive system.
A lot of the equipment that used to come standard in the top models of last year's extensive nine-trim range is still available, but as extras and optional packages. See the GT as a classy and the Modena as a sporty canvas that you can adorn with your chosen extras. The GT can be equipped with the $3,490 GT Sport Package, which adds 20-inch Dark Perseo wheels, GranSport front and rear fascias, high-gloss Piano Black wood trim, and gloss black-painted brake calipers with white Maserati script. This package also requires one to fit performance tires for $420, raising the price to $3,910.
With more standard driver-assistance features fitted this year, last year's Driver Assistance Package falls away. The GT Sport Nerissimo Package adds black 20-inch wheels, the GranSport exterior fascias, black wood trim, the GT Sport interior package, and black calipers for $4,590 and the Comfort and Convenience Package adds soft-close doors, a hands-free trunk lid, front and rear parking sensors, and power-adjustable foot pedals for $1,500. Another interesting option is the $700 Climate Package that adds heated rear seats, heated windshield washers, and a power rear sunblind. Lots of standalone extras like upgraded audio systems (ranging from $1,100 to $2,500), extended leather trim ($1,100), and adaptive LED headlights ($1,450) are available.
Modena models are available with a $2,600 Interior Carbon Fiber Package, which adds carbon fiber column-mounted paddle shifters, carbon fiber door sills, and high gloss carbon fiber twill trim. Also only available on the Modena is the $4,000 Sportivo Package with its sports seats and pedals, Alcantara headliner, Skyhook performance suspension, and adaptive LED headlights.
Because the Ghibli is more expensive than its competitors, we would try to keep costs to a minimum, while dialing up the fun. For that reason, we'd go with the Maserati Ghibli Modena RWD. The Modena gets the more powerful 424-hp twin-turbo V6 engine. It retains the less powerful base model's features, though, which include 19-inch Poseidone aluminum wheels, a 10.1-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi connectivity, power front seats, dual-zone climate control, blind-spot warning, front and rear parking sensors, and keyless start. The extra power alone is worth the $4,700 premium.
