The New Maserati Models: A Combination of Luxury and Power at its Finest
Just like their predecessors, between these 2016 Maserati models is a combination of luxury and power that is hard to beat. With state-of-the-art technology, materials, engineering, and engines, they are sure to leave a lasting impression the first time you sit inside one and turn the key.
The Ghibli: Supreme Luxury
A dynamic driving experience wrapped in a jaw-dropping Italian design, and refined spaciousness with class-leading luxury – that’s the best way to describe the 2016 Maserati Ghibli. This vehicle is a pleasant combination of both, but it’s the elegant design and luxurious atmosphere that really stands out — especially on the top-of-the-line S Q4 trim.
Since beauty is a huge part of luxury, it’s only fair to admire the aesthetics of the exterior and interior of the vehicle. The design itself is an unparalleled unity between elegance and sportiness. The distinctive front end sets the S Q4 apart from the other vehicles on the market, with the trident sitting proudly in the middle of a vertical grille design. The sleek and sweeping lines on the hood dictate the rest of the design, which is rounded off with powerful curves at the back.
On the inside, you’ll find a two-tone color scheme of a deep red and black, with chrome trim dancing around the infotainment system and heating vents. It’s plenty spacious enough, and the soft, high-quality leather seats have wraparound seating for improved comfort when taking sharp corners. The dashboard layout and seats are as ergonomic as possible, and the controls are very intuitive. That way, when you want to put some music on the premium Harman Kardon sound system — or the ultimate Bowers and Wilkins optional concert-hall 15-speaker, 16-channel, 1,280-watt amplifier sound system — it’s an effortless task.
Because as we all know, effortlessness is a precursor to luxury.
GranTurismo and Quattroporte: Exceptional Power
While the Ghibli provides a smooth-as-silk driving experience, if it’s unbridled power you are looking for, then you need either the Quattroporte or GranTurismo, both of which have engines that rival those of famous muscle cars throughout the years. Except the only difference is, this power is produced in a more refined and elegant manner.
The 2016 GranTurismo is a model with a design that commands attention on the road, then astounds onlookers with its power. The 4.7-liter V8 engine the GranTurismo starts with is both smooth and reliable, and perfectly demonstrates the mechanical sophistication that Maserati is known for. Sophistication, such as the special DLC (Diamond-Like Coating) finish that’s used for tappets and camshaft lobes. This innovation slightly reduces friction, which is a main culprit of engine issues. It’s able to crank out 454 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque, which is more horsepower than some of the leading muscle cars generate at the highest trim level.
This sophisticated display of power is backed by intelligence, and the torque is distributed over a wide range of engine speeds, which means that smooth and instant power is delivered on demand. Speaking of power, pressing the Sport button will activate valves in the exhaust system and doing so enhances the output level by allowing the engine to breathe easier.
If you thought the GranTurismo was an engineering marvel, wait until you see what the Quattroporte GTS can do. While the base trim and second trim have an engine that outputs a respectable 404 horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. of torque, the 3.8-liter V8 Twin-Turbo engine found in the GTS puts out a massive 523 horsepower and 524 lb.-ft. of torque. This trident flagship is the most powerful and fastest Maserati in 101 years of the brand’s history. It was 53 years ago that Maserati decided to put the first V8 racing engine in a luxury sedan, and that tradition continues today, with this V8 racing engine being the most high-tech design ever installed in a Maserati vehicle. Thanks to the advanced technology, this vehicle can reach a top speed of 191 mph, which is record-breaking for the brand.
Of course, that might seem like an unnecessary amount of power to you. If that’s the case, then saving money on a pre-owned Maserati model with a little less power might be worth your while.
The Value Behind Buying a Pre-Owned Maserati
When it comes to high-end luxury sports cars — especially Maserati models — it might not seem like a wise decision at first to buy used, for fear of expensive parts breaking, which can result in costly repairs. But, there is actually a couple of reasons why buying a used or especially a certified pre-owned Maserati offers great value, especially from a trustworthy dealership like Maserati of Albany.
First, owners of Maserati vehicles typically trade them in at the end of a lease, or simply trade it back in and get the newest model. Since these aren’t typically used as daily drivers by consumers (like most expensive brands), they have lower-than average miles when compared to other cars that are traded back into a dealership. A vehicle with such a high-quality design that only has 20,000 miles on it isn’t going to have parts breaking anytime soon.
Secondly, Maserati vehicles depreciate extremely quickly, even when compared to other high-end models. Therefore, even a vehicle that is only two or three years old will cost astronomically less than a brand new model. While it might not have the latest infotainment system installed, the reduced price is well worth the cost.
Therefore, the value in buying a used Maserati is because it features low miles on a like-new vehicle, and is typically priced much lower less than a current model.
