Dodge Challenger and Charger to come with Maserati's Ghibli architecture

In a recent report by Automotive News, we learned that FCA is no longer pursuing its original plans in using Alfa Romeo’s Giorgio architecture on both the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger. Instead, it will be using the new platform that will underpin Maserati’s new sedan. Automotive News however didn’t name the source of this information.

It is also said that Fiat Chrysler Automotive will be giving both of its vehicle models the final refresh for the 2019 model year before the arrival of its all-new generation range two years after. By that time, the two Dodge models would have already moved on to Maserati Ghibli’s architecture and shall no longer use the ongoing models’ current platform. To add some new twists to the current vehicle lineups, FCA for now has cooked up some special edition packages both for the Dodge Charger and Challenger.

Suffice it to say, Alfa Romeo’s Giorgio RWD architecture will still be used on one of the upcoming generation’s Dodge model -- the Journey SUV. With its intentions in building the most driver-centric sport utility vehicle, FCA will be taking Alfa Rome Stelvio’s engine designs. The next generation SUV range is expected to arrive at the showrooms in 2019 and will soon be manufactured and produced in Italy. Currently, FCA is producing its SUVs in Mexico.

Updated Maserati Ghibli luxury sedan is a GranLusso version

Italian luxury carmaker Maserati is updating its Ghibli four-door premium sedan, giving it a new name, a new face and some new technologies. However, Maserati won't be unveiling this update – the new Maserati Ghibli GranLusso – anywhere in Europe. That’s because the company is set to unveil the face-lifted and re-christened luxury four-door in China, in particular at the 2017 Chengdu Auto Show.

Already four years old, the Maserati Ghibli was a success. However, it didn’t become as successful as the Italian carmaker had initially expected. In fact, against luxury sedan rivals like the Mercedes E-Class and the BMW 5-Series, the Ghibli is losing face. However, that doesn’t mean that the Ghibli is ugly. It is beautiful and elegant in its own right; but it just failed to tickle the pockets of majority of luxury customers in Europe. This could be the reason why Maserati is choosing to unveil the 2018 iteration of the Ghibli in another market where luxury is still in a thing in high demand -- China.

For the 2018 model year, Maserati is giving the Ghibli a new trim – the GranLusso. This suffix to the Ghibli moniker suggests that this version of the luxury sedan could be the most luxurious to date. After all, “gran lusso” is an Italian phrase that is translated as “grand luxury” in English. Maserati is expected to reveal how it achieved this in the new Ghibli GranLusso during the official unveiling at the Chengdu Auto Show.

Maserati reveals limited edition pitch black Ghibli Nerissimo

This may be the sports car that will suit Batman's taste and can possibly replace the Bat mobile. Cue the Batman soundtrack; let's feast our eyes on Maserati's new creation: the Limited Edition black trim package dubbed the "Ghibli Nerissimo".

Using all black on a vehicle is becoming a bigger trend nowadays, with the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan offering a Midnight Package and Chevrolet also competing with its Midnight Edition Trucks. Now the Italian automaker powerhouse Maserati is following suit with its rival releases and it has decided to jump on the bandwagon with its Ghibli Nerissimo package, which directly translates to "extremely black" in English. The newly unveiled Black Beast awesomely contrasted with the bright halls of the 2017 New York Auto Show, getting a whole lot of attention from interested spectators.

The limited edition package will not only be on the 345 hp Ghibli, but is also made available with the 404 hp Ghibli S and Ghibli S Q4 models. All sports car with the Nerissimo package will feature a sports steering wheel, adaptive dampers, shift paddles, 12 way power front seats, a blind spot monitor, rear and front parking sensors, and a remote starting system.

Velvet-wrapped Maserati Ghibli is a real treat

When Maserati released the new Levante, the brand had hoped it would start a new chapter in its rebirth. That plan did not go as expected though as when it comes to the rich and famous, the SUV of choice remains to be the Porsche Cayenne. Even then, there is a good alternative that can be found in the Maserati‘s lineup and this is the Ghibli.

At its core, the Ghibli is what everyone is likely to expect from a sports sedan. This is true even if Maserati has yet to come up with a hardcore version of this model. It comes with high-tech features that take luxury to new levels. The interior shows excellent craftsmanship while the exterior has a modern design that retains a classic appeal. No wonder that even when put alongside some German models that claim to be spirited, the Ghibli remains to be a cut above the rest.

Unlike the Ghibli, the other models are like some of those social media celebrities in that they may believe they have the acting chops but are hesitant to get out of the social media platform.

As pleasurable as it may seem to destroy supercars in video games such as GTA (Grand Theft Auto), it’s not as much fun when it’s your supercar getting wrecked in real life. Most enthusiasts would probably cringe upon looking at a supercar going through unpaved roads or taking a dip in flooded waters.

Videos of supercars have gone across the internet strutting their stuff around paved streets but one particular video has been going around showing a group of wealthy Chinese supercar enthusiasts blasting their way across the Sichuan-Tibet Highway.

Apparently, it is unlike being driven through the streets of Paris or Germany because the supercars are driven through unpaved roads causing a bit, well, more than a bit of damage in to the supercars. Yes, this is a cringe-worthy write-up and is not for the faint hearted.

The new vehicle arrives with an exclusive Azzurro Astro exterior colour based on a triple layer pigment as well as with 20-inch Urano wheels showing a Liquid Metal finish.

Contemporary feel and dynamism are the first words that come to mind when seeing the interior of the Maserati Ghibli S Q4. The passenger compartment for instance has a dual-material and dual-color composition with Zegna anthracite silk and leather tones. The pattern of the interior is effectively characterized by matching the micro-chevron silk weave from Ermenegildo Zegna POLTRONA FRAU’s natural color leather.

Dynamism and a contemporary feel are the key words to read the dual-colour, dual-material composition of the passenger compartment - in leather tones and Zegna anthracite silk. While already an essentially sophisticated material, the silk is further enhanced with a macro-chevron hand-stitched pattern which is then polished by the seat piping. The matching salt & pepper silk jersey on the door panel is enhanced as well through alternating rib embroidery.

The Maserati brand received around 17,000 orders around the world in the first seven months of 2013 -- nearly triple the number of vehicles it sold in 2012 – thanks to introduction of new models. According to Maserati brand chief executive Harald Wester, their best-selling offering in the period was the Quattroporte sedan, which has a price of around EUR110,000 ($147,300). Fiat plans for Maserati to sell more units in order to succeed in its latest strategy to return to profit in 2016 in Europe.

Wester remarked that while United States is still Maserati’s largest market globally, China has become a leading market for certain models such as the Quattroporte. Maserati made a EUR1.2-billion investment in new models to boost sales.

Maserati rolled out the Quattroporte in January 2013. The entry-level Ghibli sedan, which carries a starting price of EUR66,000, also helped Maserati post strong orders in the first seven months of 2013. Maserati will roll out the Ghibli in September.

Maserati is unveiling its latest addition to its range of cars at the Shanghai Motor Show as part of its bid to sell 50,000 vehicles annually. The carmaker introduced its latest model that follows up the all-new V8 and V6 Quattroporte models, the all-new Ghibli. The Ghibli is Maserati’s first-ever mid-size four-door luxury sports saloon, boasting of an awesome performance coming from its turbo-charged V6 petrol engine.

Maserati will also offer a diesel version of the all-new Ghibli, making the luxury sports saloon its first-ever diesel model. The Ghibli’s  turbo-diesel 3.0-litre V6, developed by Maserati engineers supervised by Scuderia Ferrari former Chief Motorist Paolo Martinelli, boasts of being more than able to provide impressive performance, but only consumes less than six liters of fuel per 100 km (more than 47 mpg) on the NEDC fuel economy cycle. The V6 engine also returns 160 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer traveled on the combined cycle.

The Ghibli features a design that underlines its dynamic driving attributes while providing a more aggressive visual exterior look. The grille of this four-door sports saloon is inspired by the current GranTurismo.

Maserati is about to unveil its new saloon that plays a major part in boosting sales eight-fold to 50,000 units by 2015. This saloon is likely to go up against the new BMW M5. This new saloon is named Ghibli. It is slated to be revealed this April at the Shanghai Motor Show before it starts selling at the end of 2013.

But even if there are delays in development, it’s not likely to be unveiled at the Frankfurt show. The new Quattroporte and existing GranTurismo and GranCabrio models in Maserati’s lineup will be joined by the Ghibli.

Next year, Levante SUV (a potential top-seller in the future) will arrive. It’s possible that in 2015, it will get a new lightweight, high-performance sports car that’s based on the Alfa Romeo 4C. Maserati is hopeful that these launches will help accomplish its sales target of 50,000 units.
