    2021 Maserati Ghibli: Engine and gearbox options

    As mentioned previously Maserati is offering a choice of three engine options – a familiar 3.0-litre V6 putting out 430hp and the new entry-level 2.0-litre four-cylinder mild-hybrid and 3.8-litre V8 from the Trofeo.

    Starting with the new 2.0-litre, the four-cylinder mill is Maserati’s first hybrid powertrain and features a 48V mild-hybrid set-up that provides an additional electronic boost when required. The unit puts out 330hp and 450Nm with Maserati claiming a 0-100kph time of 5.7 seconds. The mild hybrid system regenerates charge for the battery during braking with the battery located under the boot floor.

    Moving to the V8, the Ferrari-derived 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 pumps out a notable 580hp and 730Nm of torque which Maserati says propels the Ghibli Trofeo from 0-100kph in just 4.3 seconds and up to a top speed of 326kph. The petrol V6 is the familiar 3.0-litre unit from the old Ghibli S and puts out 430hp and 580Nm. All models send power to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

    While the Ghibli was previously available with a diesel engine option, the updated luxury sedan only gets petrol engine options.
