Recent reports indicate that we won’t be seeing any new or updated Maserati vehicles in the immediate future. A refreshed Ghibli is expected to arrive soonest, and rumors suggest it will be here by the end of 2018.
Aside from the Ghibli, we probably won’t see any new Maserati products until 2020, which could be the year the Alfieri hardtop arrives. Some believe the Alfieri will be a fully electric vehicle by then. Also expected to come in 2020 is the GranTurismo, with the coupe being released ahead of the convertible by six to twelve months.
The Quattroporte, which was revised in 2016, and the Levante, which came to the states in 2016, are both expected to go untouched until 2022. That said, Maserati is considering the prospect of building a vehicle on the Alfa Romeo Giorgio platform, which underpins the Stelvio. This could freshen up the Maserati lineup, but it could also lead to cannbibalized sales of the Stelvio.
At this time, we’re most interested in seeing what the automaker has in store for the Alfieri concept. Will FCA follow the market shift and make it fully electric, despite Sergio Marchionnes’ frank rejection of electric vehicles, or perhaps make it a performance hybrid of sorts? We’ll keep you up to speed on that and everything else FCA related, here at FC Authority.
