Whats Going On At Maserati?

“According to the above slide, Maserati will debut a refreshed Levante, Ghibli, and Quattroporte next year, along with an all-new sports car.”

Given FCAs new product history, I’d say we may see a debut of the planned model refreshes but they won’t hit the lots until 2021. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the new vehicle debut on time but only as a production ready concept with no firm sale date.

Next year Levante with its first MCA and Ghibli and Quattroporte with its 2nd. It's a MY21 so sale mid to late 2020.

I don't know what will they change. Infotainment is the likely candidate.
But I know it will get an all new electric architecture. ADAS will be at least Level 2+ if not Level 3. EMEA COO Pietro Gorlier have a hint foe Level 3 ADAS.
They will offer MHEV and PHEV powertrains. 2.0 MHEV with 330 HP is in the works for Ghibli MCA and all new D segment SUV.

Alfieri is shelved. At least as a full electric aluminium spaceframe model. Sports car slated for late 2020 is nothing else but a Maserati "8C". Yes, Maserati took over Alfa 8C project. Carbon shell, mid rear engine...

But something else is in the Maserati plans which was not present last year. All new generation of GT and GC.

As we speak and later part of Maserati plan may be changed. Some products may be axed and some new may come in. I'm talking about 2022-2023. There is a high possibility of a SUV model above Levante.

That doesn't surprise me, for some reason I thought Alfieri was the Maser version of the upcoming "8C". Is Alfa still going ahead with that or is it just going to be a Maserati?

I noticed the GT and GC were there which weren't last year which had me a bit confused, both make sense to keep in the lineup though.

I definitely wouldn't be surprised to see changes from the current plan a few years out, an SUV above the Levante makes sense with the success other luxury brands are having with premium SUVs these days.

One problem I see with Maserati is..although I follow pretty much all the hi points of FCA brands Maserati and Fiat I forget are even part of the bigger picture. Its like they are luxury brands but I think I know more about Lincoln and Cadillac (and I don't follow them at all) Its like I never see an ad for Maserati or a TV commercial.

Maybe they would do better if they spent more on advertising?
