Maserati has pulled back the curtain on their new vehicle, the Ghibli sedan. The new Ghibli is Maserati's contender in the midsize sedan market and will be shown at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month.
The Ghibli looks to be a scale-down version of the new Quattroporte, both inside and out. Maserati says the new Ghibli will utilize a pair of tubrocharged 3.0L V6 engines (one gas and one diesel) both mated to eight-speed automatic transmissions. Rear wheel drive is standard with Maserati's new Q4 all-wheel drive system available as an option.
The Ghibli will play a major role in Maserati's plan to reach 50,000 vehicles sold by 2015.

The all-new Maserati Ghibli to debut in Shanghai
09/04/2013 - Modena
Maserati has released the first official images of its upcoming four-door sports executive sedan in advance of its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month.
The all-new Ghibli is set to break new ground for Maserati.
The Ghibli will have a sportier character compared to the larger Quattroporte, launched at the beginning of this year. The Ghibli will be available with two turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engines, an eight-speed automatic transmission and both rear-wheel drive and the new "Q4" all-wheel drive system.
The Ghibli will also become the first Maserati production car in history to be powered by a diesel engine, with a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel.
It is Maserati's first sedan in this segment and reflects the company's belief that a growing number of premium executive car buyers are looking to make an individual statement through a car that is distinctive, elegant and luxurious.
The Ghibli will play a significant role in Maserati's growth plan to sell 50,000 cars per year.
