A brand-new Maserati GranTurismo will hit the market in 2023. The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore is the first fully electric variant, joining two powerful V6 turbocharged petrol variants.
The 2023 Maserati GranTurismo is a sophisticated luxury coupe that can hold its own against the likes of the Porsche 911, BMW 8 Series, and Bentley Continental GT. The GranTurismo Folgore EV is set to compete with high-performance versions of the Audi e-tron GT, Porsche Taycan, and Tesla Model S.
There is a new Maserati GranTurismo for 2023, and it has a very traditional look for a coupe. It’s long and low and opulently finished, with a grille and trimming that sparkle like diamonds. Maserati’s signature triple ovals can be found on the front lower wings, and the company’s trident logo can be found on the car’s C-pillars.
The new Maserati GranTurismo has commanding proportions thanks to its long wheelbase, which pairs well with the car’s stretched bonnet and rearward-mounted cabin. The panels have a naturalistic shape, with swooping front and rear wings that curve around to frame the massive alloy wheels. The shapes and curves combine beautifully.
Similarities between the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore and its gasoline-powered counterparts are minimal. The most noticeable difference is at the back, where a closed bumper replaces the open one found on V6 models. You’ll find the charging port in the lower left corner of the back bumper, close to the LED tail light.
The new Maserati GranTurismo has yet to show its interior. Considering how high the bar has been set by competitors like the Bentley Continental GT and the Audi e-tron GT, Maserati will need to deliver on this front if it wants to compete with these luxury competitors.
The Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) multimedia system will debut in the 2023 Maserati GranTurismo, according to the company. It will also feature cutting-edge infotainment technology, such as a streamlined touchscreen interface and a head-up display (HUD) that can be activated if desired.
Even the iconic Maserati analogue clock, which has been a fixture in the centre of dashboards for decades, has been given a high-tech facelift. It’s been upgraded to a digital clock with interchangeable faces.
Like the Porsche 911, the new Maserati GranTurismo is a 2+2 with “jump seats” in the back. The trunk capacity of the Maserati GranTurismo is 310 litres for the gasoline models and drops to 270 litres for the Folgore variant.
A 3.0L V6 twin-turbo, named Nettuno, will power the first two Maseratis to hit the market. It will likely come with an automatic transmission with eight gears. The base model of the Maserati GranTurismo line, called Modena, will have 490 horsepower. Even in this iteration, performance is expected to be spirited, and standard four-wheel drive ensures that all of that power is transferred smoothly to the pavement.
Since the new Nettuno turbo V6 engine for the 2023 GranTurismo is more fuel efficient than the previous naturally aspirated V8 model, Maserati is making the switch. It will have much better fuel economy than the Porsche 911, which currently holds the record for the most fuel-efficient production car at 28 miles per gallon.
The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, with its all-electric, zero-emission EV drivetrain, easily outperforms the competition. It has a whopping 760 PS and is the most potent new GranTurismo thanks to its all-wheel drive. Performance figures of 0-62 mph in 2.7 seconds and 0-124 mph in 8.8 seconds are anticipated. The maximum speed that Maserati hopes to achieve is 199 miles per hour.
A lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 92.5 kWh will power the 2023 Maserati GranTurismo Folgore. Due to its 800V electrical architecture, it will be compatible with ultra-rapid chargers that can deliver up to 270kW, allowing for the potential addition of hundreds of miles to the vehicle’s range in a matter of minutes. However, in order for the new Maserati to be competitive with the Porsche Taycan, we anticipate that the EV range will be around 300 miles.
Cost and debut of the Maserati GranTurismo 2023
Beginning in early 2023, you can purchase a Maserati GranTurismo with an estimated starting price of £150,000. To be released later in 2023 is the electric Maserati GranTurismo Folgore. We anticipate prices to begin around £200,000, which will place it at the pinnacle of Maserati’s new car lineup, ahead of both the Ghibli and the Levante SUV.
