Maserati GranTurismo: What the reveal tells us
On the outside, the Maserati GranTurismo carries forward the design from its previous version. The front fascia flaunts the signature oval-shaped grille along with the ‘Trident’ logo. The headlamps have been redesigned and given a sleeker look. The GT also sports L-shaped LED DRLs. Along the sides, the GranTurismo reveals the classic glasshouse design. Three rectangular air vents can also be found on the front fender. The rear profile reveals LED tail lamps connected by a chrome strip.
Under the hood, the Maserati GranTurismo will share its engine with the Maserati MC20. This 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged Nettuno V6 engine produces a maximum power of 490hp. The Trofeo version of the same engine can produce a maximum power of 630hp. The GranTurismo may get a mild-hybrid engine as well.
The GranTurismo Folgore EV variant will come with a 105kW battery pack that can promise a range of up to 560km. The three 300kW magnet motors can produce a maximum power of 760hp and 800Nm peak torque. According to Maserati, the EV will have a distinctive sound that is unique to all Maserati cars.
The interior of the Maserati GranTurismo still remains a mystery, but more details will emerge as we get closer to launch. Rumours suggest that it will get a smaller steering and a 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Maserati also plans on launching the Grecale EV this year, which will share the same powertrain as the GranTurismo.
The Maserati GranTurismo will launch globally next year along with the Grecale SUV. While Maserati has made no announcement about an Indian launch yet, it has revealed that the Levante Hybrid and MC20 will be released in India later this year.
