Maserati still isn’t ready to actually replace the GranTurismo with an all-new redesign, but for 2018, it still looks just as good. Maserati revealed the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo with a freshened face and a few additional new features.
Thankfully, the Maserati GranTurismo has never been an ugly duckling, which means the refresh still gives the car a very sexy appeal. The front grille is inspired by the Alfieri concept and is said to reduce aerodynamic drag from 0.33 to 0.32. At the rear, things are freshened up with a cleaner over style.
For 2018, just the Maserati GranTurismo Sport and MC trims will be available, with the latter representing the more track-focused model. Both still receive power from a Ferrari-built 4.7-liter V8 engine with 460 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque on tap. A six-speed automatic remains, one of the oldest pieces of the GranTurismo’s equipment list.
Inside, there a few new things of note. A redesigned center console now shows off an aluminum rotary dial controller. Meanwhile, the GranTurismo’s driving modes have been relocated next to the gear selector with a new selector. An 8.4-inch infotainment unit—ubiquious across Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles—is front and center and houses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. A Harman Kardon sound system and Poltrona Frau leather now covers all four seats as standard equipment.
Maserati didn’t provide an on-sale date, but the updates may be enough to sway current owners back into another Maserati GranTurismo.
