Mechanically unchanged for 2022, Maserati’s Ghibli is now available in three new trim levels, to emphasize changes across this luxury sedan range. The GT, Modena, and Trofeo trims come with different engines and subtle styling differences, both inside and out.
Choosing Your Maserati Ghibli
Each Ghibli is powered by a different engine configuration, hence the disparity in pricing as you move up the range. A GT will cost you $77,695 including destination, while the more powerful Modena comes in at $82,395, with all-wheel drive a $2,600 upgrade. The RWD-only Trofeo weighs in at $112,095.
The Ghibli’s engine range starts with the GT’s three-liter V6 gas engine, generating 369 horsepower and 345 pound-feet of torque. This is supplied to either the rear or all four wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, returning an EPA-estimated 18 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 20 combined. The Modena boosts its output from the same engine to 424 HP and 406 lb-ft, with fuel economy dropping to 16/24/19 MPG in AWD guise.
The 3.8-liter V8 powerplant in the Trofeo models spits out 580 HP and 538 lb-ft of torque. You wouldn’t buy a high-performance Italian supercar for its gas mileage, so figures of 13 miles per gallon city, 20 mpg highway, and 16 combined shouldn’t concern prospective purchasers.
|Engine Type||Horsepower||Torque||Fuel Economy (City/Highway/Combined)|
|3.0 V6||369 hp||345 lb-ft||18/25/20 MPG (RWD), 16/24/19 (AWD)|
|3.8 V8||580 hp||538 lb-ft||13/20/16 MPG|
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
Cargo capacity for the four-seater Ghibli stands at 17.7 cubic feet with the rear seats in place.
Independent control over each wheel underpins the Q4 all-wheel-drive system available on Modena models, monitoring everything from yaw angle to driving style. Whether you choose AWD or RWD, you’ll benefit from traffic sign recognition and highway assist, which combines adaptive cruise control with lane-keeping assist. There’s forward collision warning and rear cross-path functionality, plus a lane departure warning system.
Communications and infotainment systems are handled through a 10.1-inch curved glass touchscreen which is based on Google’s Android Automotive OS. An eight-speaker stereo is standard, with satellite radio, smartphone compatibility and navigation also default specs, alongside WiFi hotspot capability for up to three connected devices. You can upgrade GT and Modena to either a Harman Kardon or Bowers & Wilkins audio system for $1,100 and $2,500 respectively, with the former standard on Trofeo.
Customization is central to the Ghibli experience, so trim levels are merely a starting point. Every model is equipped with keyless entry, while leather upholstery extends across 12-way power front seats with memory settings. Navigation and smartphone compatibility are standard, too.
Options include the $3,490 GT Sport package, which brings gloss black paint calipers behind 20-inch triple-spoke wheels, while piano black trim surrounds a heated black leather steering wheel. The Comfort & Convenience pack ups the cabin’s opulence for $1,500, combining soft-close doors and power-adjustable pedals with front and rear parking sensors
The only Ghibli available with all-wheel drive, Modena models are very similar to GT in their specifications. However, you can customize your Modena with a $2,600 carbon fiber package, or spend $4,000 on the Sportivo Pack’s sport pedals, adaptive full LED headlamps, and 12-way memory power front seats.
Distinguished by its high-gloss carbon fiber detailing from the hood to the side air intakes and adaptive full LED headlights, Trofeo models major on performance. They also receive a Harman Kardon premium audio system as standard, alongside Pieno Fiore ribbed leather.
The only package worth noting on this trim is the $700 Climate pack, which adds a power rear sunblind and heated windshield washer nozzles.
With limited specification upgrades as you move up the range, it’s hard to see past GT spec unless you want the added reassurance of all-wheel drive, in which case you’ll need to move up to the Modena.
