We know Maserati has some new vehicles coming in the pipeline. There's the new Quattroporte which will be shown at Detroit Auto Show next month, a smaller sedan named the Ghibli, and a new SUV wearing the Levante nameplate.
Car and Driver has caught wind of some other Maserati products coming soon. First up is the next-generation GranTurismo due out in 2014. Maserati chief designer Lorenzo Ramaciotti has said that it would be a more sports-car-like vehicle unlike the current model which is heavy and large. The GranTrurismo will use the underpinnings of the new Quattroporte. That will be followed by the GranTurismo cabriolet in 2015.
Also in 2015 will be a new small SUV or crossover to challenge the Audi Q5 and Porsche Macan. The interesting bit of news with this is the SUV/Crossover will use Fiat's CUSW (Compact US Wide platform), built for front-wheel and all-wheel-drive vehicles and seen on such vehicles as the Dodge Dart.
