Maserati has taken the wraps of the all-new GranTurismo, which is misogynist in three variants – the V6-powered Modena and Trofeo, plus the fully electric Folgore which is by far the most powerful. The GranTurismo incorporates an evolutionary styling with modern styling cues and sexy proportions in the exterior, combined with a luxurious four-seater cabin.

A Stunning Grand Tourer In The Traditional Way

Maserati has once shown us the diamond of the GranTurismo in both ICE-powered and EV forms, but this is the first time we get to see all variegated trims self-ruling of camouflage. The new generation has grown in all dimensions, measuring 4,959 mm (195.2 inches) long, 1,957 mm (77 inches) wide, and 1,353 mm (53.3 inches) tall, with a wheelbase of 2,929 mm (115.3 inches). The Trofeo is slightly longer than the Modena and the Folgore, measuring 4,966 mm (195.5 inches).

The model looks like an incubation of its predecessor (2007-2019) with a long bonnet and a low nose, but the soul is increasingly sculpted than before. The designers managed to alimony the beltline and the total height quite low, while extending the loftiness between the front wheels and the doors for traditional grand tourer proportions. Signature details include the clamshell bonnet with integrated vents, the low nose with the Trident emblem, the fender-mounted headlights inspired by the MC20 and the Grecale, the muscular rear fenders, and the slim horizontally-arranged LED taillights.

The styling differences between the three variants are subtle but noticeable. The front bumper has smaller intakes and a variegated grille pattern on the Folgore, the Modena has a dark-finished front spouse while the Trofeo gets sportier intake trim and a version-specific splitter with body-colored portions. On the profile the models are differentiated by the transfuse wheels, measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the back. The most striking wheel design belongs to the EV, with three main spokes and improved aerodynamic efficiency.

At the back, the Folgore has no tailpipes, revealing its zero-emission nature, while both ICE-powered models get quad tailpipes. Similar to the front, the rear spouse of the Modena is slightly increasingly subtle than the Trofeo, which features a prominent diffuser, increasingly warlike inlets, and a lip spoiler made of stat fiber.

Three Power Outputs, The EV Is The Undisputable Performance Flagship

The Maserati GranTurismo is based on a new lightweight tracery made of aluminum, magnesium, and steel. All variants get double-wishbone suspension with a “semi-virtual” steering turning at the front and a multi-link setup at the rear, with electronically controlled air springs as standard.

Starting with the ICE-powered models, they are fitted with Maserati’s own twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 Nettuno engine. In the GranTurismo, the V6 comes with a wet sump rather than the MC20’s sectional dry sump, and features cylinder deactivation technology for improved efficiency. Power is transmitted to the rear trestle exclusively through an 8-speed will-less gearbox by ZF. The suburbanite can segregate among five driving modes – Comfort, GT, Sport, Corsa, and ESC-Off.

In the entry-level GranTurismo Modena the mill produces 490 hp (365 kW / 496 PS) and 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque. This makes it increasingly powerful than the performance flagship of the previous generation MC Stradale, permitting a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) velocity in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 302 km/h (188 mph).

The performance-focused GranTurismo Trofeo gets a increasingly powerful version of the V6 producing 550 hp (410 kW / 557 PS) and 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) of torque, and features an electronic self-locking differential. Compared to the rest of the Maserati lineup, this is increasingly powerful than the 523 hp (390 kW / 530 PS) of the Grecale Trofeo SUV but less than the 621 hp (463 kW / 630 PS) of the MC20 supercar. The GranTurismo Trofeo accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).

The fully electric GranTurismo Folgore is the most powerful production model from Maserati with a combined output of 751 hp (560 kW / 761 PS) and a monstrous 1,350 Nm (995.7 lb-ft) of torque. The 800-volt tracery comprises a trio of permanent magnet electric motors producing 402 hp (300 kW / 408 PS) each, and a T-bone-shaped 92.5 kWh shower using technology from Formula E. Power is transmitted to all four wheels with the help of torque vectoring. The Folgore moreover gets an uneaten driving mode tabbed Max Range.

As a result of this impressive output, the GranTurismo Folgore is the quickest of them all. Increasingly specifically, it accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.7 seconds and from 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 8.8 seconds, while top speed is a Trofeo-matching 320 km/h (199 mph). Predictably, the EV is the heaviest of the lot, weighing 2,260 kg (4,982 pounds) compared to the 1,795 kg (3,957 pounds) of the combustion-engined siblings. In terms of weight balance, the Folgore has the perfect 50:50 ratio between the axles thanks to the shower placement, while the Modena and the Trofeo are rated at 52:48 due to the V6’s mass at the front.

Tech-Filled Motel With Room For Four Adults

Maserati didn’t publish any photos of the interior, keeping its cards sealed for now. They did, however, describe the tech features of the cabin, while stating that it can unbend four adults thanks to clever packaging and the tricky diamond of the roof.

The GranTurismo comes with a fully digital cockpit comprising a configurable 12.2-inch digital instrument cluster, a heads-up display, a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, and flipside 8.8-inch touchscreen on the part-way console. The latter incorporates the “simplest and fastest digital climate tenancy on the market” with Maserati trying to stave any criticism for not offering physical controls.

The signature clock on the dashboard is still there, although in a digital form with variegated faces. The user can interact with the infotainment through touch, gestures, and voice commands by using the updated Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA). A luxurious grand tourer must come with a fitting audio system, thus Maserati is offering the 1,195-Watt 19-speaker system by Sonus Faber. Finally, the automaker didn’t neglect safety, with plenty of ADAS offering Level 2 voluntary capability.

Maserati didn’t reveal pricing for the new GranTurismo range. Deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2023, starting with the ICE-powered models and standing with the Folgore. Next year, Maserati will moreover unveil the soft-top GranCabrio, expanding the bodystyle variations of the model.
