As the Maserati brand is in the process of reinventing itself, we are getting our first peek at the next vehicle to enter the premium brand’s lineup. Maserati teased its upcoming GranTurismo grand tourer, yesterday, with a series of new photos. The photos give us our first real look at the new high-performance coupe as it gets to enter the second generation of its life.
While the fancy Maserati wrap hides a lot of the body lines, it can’t hide the fact that we can see the overall shape of the new headlamps which appear to be very similar to the new MC20 super sportscar. We can see the updated “trident” logo in the grille surrounded by large intakes. The Maserati-themed camouflage also hides a good look of the vehicle’s C-pillar, but the overall greenhouse shape of the cabin looks very reminiscent of the Maserati Alfieri Concept.
According to Maserati, the new 2022 GranTurismo will be the premium brand’s first car to adopt a 100% electric solution. This means there will be both a plug-in electric (PHEV) and a battery-electric (BEV) option to choose from. The PHEV model is rumored to feature the new Maserati “Nettuno” V6, which produces 621 horsepower and 538 lb.-ft. of torque in MC20 form.
The GranTurismo will join the all-new Maserati Grecale, a mid-sized SUV that should make its debut later this year. In a series of teaser shots released earlier this year, a license plate on a Grecale tester had “MMXXI” written on it, symbolizing we might see another unveiling event similar to the MMXX event last year. We expect the new GranTurismo will debut alongside the Grecale.
It should be a very good 2022 model year for the Maserati brand. With the launch of the Maserati MC20, which has already sold out of its first production run, the mild-hybrid variants of the Ghibli and Levante, and a number of special edition models the brand seems more poised than ever at tackling the premium luxury market.
