The speed enthusiasts and lovers of the high-performance cars will be glad to hear the news about the next-generation 2019 Maserati Granturismo. Namely, this sports vehicle has been on its way to hit the roads soon, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet whether it will arrive as a 2019 model. Even if it doesn’t appear before 2020, we can only say that it is definitely worth waiting.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Maserati GranTurismo, this model will be available in two configuration choices. You will be able to choose between a coupe and a convertible. It has also been said that the new GranTurismo will be offered in two trim levels only – Sport and MC. Be that as it may, the first impression says that this model shows a rather familiar body. However, some of the visual changes and updates have been quite significant. The whole vehicle appears more aerodynamic thanks to its long ‘shark-nose’ profile. It simply cuts through the air and allows an outstanding acceleration and performance. Besides its improved aerodynamics, the front fascia of the new GranTurismo gets a three-dimensional look thanks to its larger hexagonal grille. According to the information we have got, the concept of the Alfieri model has definitely served as an inspiration for the complete front fascia. You will also find its redesigned headlights with LED daytime running lamps. Looking at the side profile, this model will wear redesigned side skirts and 20-inch silver wheels that will be lighter in weight. In the back part of the vehicle, we have spotted redesigned diffusers and larger rear spoiler. All in all, this new Maserati will show some really aggressive, powerful and menacing appearance.
You can only imagine what the 2019 Maserati GranTurismo will reveal inside its cabin. As well as the exterior, the interior has also been expected to receive some serious changes and updates. The cabin and its four seats will be ultimately comfortable with premium-quality materials used. Technology will also be upgraded, so the driver can expect an 8.4-inch touch screen with the latest infotainment and entertainment system. Apple Car Play and Android Auto are just some of the next-generation features that will be offered.
The 2019 Maserati GranTurismo should offer a 4.7-liter Ferrari-developed V8 engine in both Sport and MC trim. Such an engine hits up to 454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to the ZF six-speed automatic transmission, although a rumor has it that Maserati might offer some other options as well. It has been estimated that the new GranTurismo will take less than 5.0 seconds to hit 60 mph.
2019 Maserati Granturismo Release Date and Price
As we have already mentioned, the next-generation Maserati GranTurismo shouldn’t be expected to hit the market earlier than 2019 or, perhaps, even 2020. We will let you know as soon as we get some new official information. The estimated price of this model should start around $134,000.
