New Maserati GranTurismo for Sale in Albany, NY
As the saying goes, there’s no need to mess with perfection, which is why the 2016 Maserati GranTurismo has roared onto the market virtually unchanged from its predecessor. Still sleek, aggressive, bold – just stunning from any angle – the Italian icon remains a sought after performance machine.
First introduced in 2008, the GranTurismo has had a good run, with industry speculation suggesting that this beauty might be phased out in the coming years. Until then, the 2016 Maserati GranTurismo will keep turning heads and inspiring on-road envy.
Starting with the Basics
The GranTurismo is offered in two body styles: the coupe or convertible. Similarly equipped, the convertible sees a slight drop in performance numbers, but with the wind running through your hair, will you even notice? Both the coupe and convertible are able to seat four passengers and are offered in three principal trim levels – the Sport, MC, and MC Centennial – with the convertible available also available in an entry-level base model.
No matter your preference – the coupe or convertible – one thing is certain. The Maserati GranTurismo is a driver-centric machine. Engaging, exciting, endlessly fun to drive, it signals it’s approach with an unmistakable, resonant Italian exhaust note, courtesy of a V8 engine from Ferrari. Features like the available Skyhook suspension inspire precise handling, as well as a smooth and comfortable ride. Occupants get an added boost of comfort courtesy of the ample padding on the seats, shaped specifically for relaxed riding, even at pulse-pounding speeds.
Speaking of speed…all 2016 Maserati GranTurismos are equipped with a 4.7-liter V8 engine, operated by a six-speed automatic transmission with manual control, thanks to the paddle shifters.
The Maserati GranTurismo coupe generates a monstrous 454 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque, with the base level convertible just slightly behind it at 444 horsepower and 376 lb.-ft. of torque. Crushing the zero to sixty mph sprint, the coupe comes in at 4.7 seconds, while the convertible models make it in 4.9 seconds, with the base convertible right at 5.1 seconds.
Not that anyone buys an Italian performance machine like the Maserati GranTurismo for its fuel efficiency; however, it’s worth noting that the coupe returns slightly better fuel figures, estimated at 16 mpg combined – 13 city, 21 highway, while the convertible gets 15 mpg combined, matching the coupe’s city rating and dropping by one on the highway.
Trim Level Details
Starting with the Sport, the first in the trio of trim levels, drivers should expect to find a host of features, including:
- adaptive xenon headlights
- alloy pedals
- automatic wipers
- adjustable suspension dampers
- Bluetooth capabilities
- cruise control
- driver memory functions
- dual-mode sport exhaust system
- dual-zone automatic climate control
- front and rear parking sensors
- heated power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors
- keyless remote entry
- leather upholstery
- tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel
- voice-controlled navigation system
- wood interior trim
- 10-way power-adjustable heated front seats
- 11-speaker Bose surround sound system with CD player, satellite radio, USB port, and auxiliary audio jack
That certainly is an impressive list of bells and whistles for the introductory trim level, priced to start at $132,825 for the coupe and $150,465 for the convertible.
Moving up to the MC trim level, expect all the aforementioned features, in addition to spoilers and side skirts for enhanced aerodynamics, a lightweight carbon-fiber hood, carbon-fiber interior trim details, non-adjustable sport suspension, and a faux suede headliner. The adjustable dampers from the Sport trim are optional on the MC; however, front parking sensors are not available. The MC coupe starts at $150,570, while the convertible comes in at $161,070.
For all of that and even more, check out the MC Centennial trim, priced to start at $165,627 (coupe) and $182,009 (convertible), which delivers extra carbon-fiber exterior enhancements, carbon-fiber front seat frames, a more rigid sport suspension, and its own unique interior trim.
The Maserati GranTurismo convertibles are similarly equipped and necessarily, by definition, come with power-folding fabric tops and roll bars. The base level convertible – priced to start at $145,740 – is missing the alloy pedals, but is otherwise on par with the rest of the convertible crew.
It’s always fun to add your own flair to anything, particularly something as significant as a car, whether it’s a daily driver or a weekend racer. Putting your signature style on your own 2016 Maserati GranTurismo is a cinch, thanks to customizations options courtesy of available carbon-fiber trims, wood or faux-suede steering wheels, along with an available wind blocker and tonneau cover for the convertible.
How Safety Features in the 2016 Maserati GranTurismo
Depending on your choice of coupe or convertible, your GranTurismo will be specifically equipped, with slightly different features between the two. Shared equipment, however, includes antilock brakes, stability and traction control, and front-seat side airbags. On the base level models, drivers have the benefit of both front and rear parking sensors, while the MC and MC Centennial trims feature rear parking sensors only. The coupe models also include front-seat side curtain airbags, while the convertibles, of course, come equipped with roll bars, which automatically deploy when needed.
Extra Enhancements and Options on the 2016 Maserati GranTurismo
Certainly these machines were never intended for passenger-packed, lengthy road trips. As such, the cargo room is conservation – enough for a weekender bag and set of golf clubs. Starting with the coupe, expect cargo room measuring 9.2 cubic feet, while the convertible shrinks to 6.1 cubic feet. Less is more, right?
Customizing your new GranTurismo is an exercise in tough decisions and a dizzying array of options. From high-end leather in ten interior shades, complemented by your choice of wood or carbon-fiber trim elements, the surface materials and exterior paint palette include twenty distinct shades.
