The first diesel engine in
Maserati’s history, the 2018 Ghibli is powered with a 3.0-litre V6 with
Common-Rail direct injection exclusively developed by Maserati in collaboration
with VM Motori. The Euro 6 homologated unit includes AdBlue technology and Auto
Start-Stop to reduce overall fuel and CO2 emissions by up to 6%. An Active
Sound System gives the V6 engine a thrilling exhaust growl.
This engine produces
best-in-class power output of 275 hp, while still achieving a CO2 emissions of
158 g/km. Combined fuel consumption of 5.9 litres/100 km and a 70-litre tank
ensure a long range of over 1,000 kilometres, making the Ghibli Diesel a car
that really serves customer needs for long-distance travel in style and
The Ghibli Diesel boasts a
maximum torque of 600 Nm between 2,000 and 2,600 rpm with over-boost
turbocharging. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and has a top
speed of 250 km/h.
The Maserati Design Centre in
Turin has given a clear identity to each of the newly-introduced trims,
primarily by restyling the front and rear bumpers. These aerodynamically
optimised changes accentuate the original’s sporty yet luxurious style. The
aerodynamic efficiency of the new Ghibli has improved by 7%, reducing the drag
coefficient to 0.29 from 0.31.
The 2018 Ghibli was the first
Maserati to be fitted with Adaptive full LED headlights with glare free Matrix
high-beam, standard in GranLusso and GranSport. Additionally, one of the key
equipment now standard for India over and above a host of safety, comfort &
interior feature, is the convenience and flexibility of the Skyhook suspension
system. The new Ghibli has also adopted the Integrated Vehicle Control system
(IVC), which helps to prevent vehicle instability, providing enhanced active
safety, improved driving dynamics and an even more thrilling performance.
The introduction of the
Electric Power Steering (EPS) will improve the car’s handling and comfort,
better support the driving modes and enable the newly-introduced active
functions of the Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS), while retaining
the classically Maserati razor-sharp steering feel.
