Same engine will also power the upcoming Levante SUV.
Following the unveiling of the five-year plan for Fiat-Chrysler, new details are emerging regarding the future of the corporation’s various brands. Beyond the ever-exciting news of Chrysler minivans and Fiat crossovers, the announcement also included details regarding Maserati’s future. Besides its approval of the beautiful Alfieri, we were excited to learn that the company will be powering-up its existing and future models with a 560 horsepower V8 engine.
The engine will be fitted to the company’s Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans, as well as to the upcoming Levante SUV. All three models will receive all-wheel drive platforms. Maserati will also mate the same engine to a rear-wheel drive platform, this time in the Granturismo. With the new engine, the Ghibli should be set to take on competition from BMW and Mercedes’ M and AMG offerings.
