A Closer Look at The 2017 Maserati Lineup
From the moment it was founded back in 1914, Maserati has been the number one name in automotive luxury, sophistication, and class. No other brand has been as successful in their endeavors to provide high-end luxury performance vehicles than the Italian automaker, Maserati. Known around the world for unparalleled in-vehicle luxury and capability, the Maserati name has been leading the luxury automotive segment for more than a century. As exclusive as they are luxurious, Maserati models are some of the rarest and most exceptional vehicles on the road. While most people will never have the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of one of the brand’s elegant models, Maserati dealers in NY and around the country are honored to offer drivers the chance to explore the Italian automaker’s 2017 lineup up close and personal.
The 2017 Maserati Lineup: Less is Certainly More
One of the most striking aspects of the Maserati lineup at first glance is that it consists of only four models. The very foundation of the brand’s century-long success rests entirely on the shoulders of the Quattroporte, Ghibli, GranTurismo, and the newest Levante crossover SUV.
With a tagline that says it all, Maserati is “Luxury, sports and style cast in exclusive cars,” and has held steadfast to that commitment from the moment the luxury automotive brand was conceived. All of the models in the 2017 Maserati lineup are as closely aligned to the brand’s philosophy as ever before, and luxury car enthusiasts are eager to explore the most recent models from the Italian automaker.
While the entire Maserati lineup for 2017 is impressive, there are two new additions that deserve a closer look. The first all-new offering from Maserati this year also happens to be one of its longest running nameplates. The 2017 Quattroporte was redesigned and reimagined from the ground up for its 54th model year, and it is just as perfect as we had hoped. The four door sedan features a redesigned stunning sculpted body, new technology that hints at the future of autonomous driving, and updated advanced safety features. Offered in three different models, the high-end luxury sedan starts at $103,400, with the ultimate Quattroporte GTS model starting just above $145,000. For drivers who are more finicky with what they require from their luxury sedans, Maserati now offers the Quattroporte with two distinct trim packages that emphasize the flagship sedan’s design and engineering philosophy.
The optional Gran Lusso trim package adds more exclusivity and style to the already well-appointed Quattroporte. With an interior cabin designed by Italian fashion icon Ermenegildo Zegna and wrapped in exquisite silk, Quattroporte models outfitted with the GranLusso option exude elegance and grace both inside and out. With chrome bumper inserts, body colored sideskirts, and 20-inch alloy wheels, opting for the GranLusso package will have you standing out even further from the crowd.
For luxury car owners who want the ultimate level of exclusivity, class, and power, the GranSport package is a must. Boasting a sportier exterior appearance and an athletically toned body, the GranSport package includes newly designed front and rear bumpers, black gloss accents, red brake calipers, and 21-inch Titano alloy wheels. The interior cabin mirrors the sedan’s exterior athleticism, with special sport seats, gearshift paddles, a new sport steering wheel, and performance-rated Inox sport foot pedal. Designed with carbon fiber to enhance on-track performance and on-road worthiness, the Quattroporte GranSport is the best way to keep up with the Joneses and racecar enthusiasts at the same time.
Regardless of which 2017 Maserati Quattroporte model you wind up parking in your driveway, you will surely be the envy of your neighbors, friends, family, and every stranger you happen to pass by on the road.
The next new addition to the Maserati lineup for 2017 is unlike anything the brand has ever created – a crossover SUV. For the first time in over a century, the Italian automaker known best for crafting luxury performance-ready sedans and coupes has created a crossover SUV. With just as much power and luxury as the rest of the brand’s lineup, the 2017 Maserati Levante is the answer that so many brand enthusiasts have been hoping for.
Unveiled for the first time in early spring of 2016, Maserati began selling the crossover at dealerships across the country in April. Boasting impressive performance numbers and an interior cabin that is both exclusive and the picture of perfection, the 2017 Maserati Levante is more capable than anyone could have imagined. All Levante models come equipped with a capable four-wheel drive system, leaving other luxury crossovers in the dust. More than just a larger version of the brand’s flagship sedan, the 2017 Levante is every bit as fun to drive while exploring off-road terrain, as it is on the track. Maserati is wasting no time perfecting this already well-equipped crossover. The Italian automaker has announced its intention to offer a performance-enhanced version of the Levante starting in 2018 that is capable of producing over 500 horsepower. Until then, the current model boasts a horsepower rating of up to 424 horsepower that will more than suffice for most luxury SUV drivers. With an interior designed by the same fashion icon that was responsible for the Quattroporte lush interior appointments, the 2017 Levante is on its way to becoming an icon of its very own.
