What You Need to Know about the 2020 Maserati GranTurismo | The GranTurismo lineup hasn’t been updated for a long time. Back then, we were promised to see a makeover for the GranTurismo in 2018. Yet, until now, we haven’t seen any. It is true that Maserati is not known for its timeliness. The question is, what kind of a grand tourer the 2020 Maserati GranTurismo will be? Just read on and you will know the answer.
2020 Maserati GranTurismo Design
Let’s admit it. The design of the GranTurismo is very unique. It is very distinguishable from other grand tourers. It looks so modern, sleek, and of course, stylish. It is worthy to be considered as one of the best grand tourers.
As good as it is, the current GranTurismo does look aged. So, it is time for Maserati to give the lineup a makeover. Unfortunately, there is no detail released by the automaker regarding the upcoming GranTurismo. The only thing that we know so far is that a new GranTurismo is coming.
How will the upcoming GranTurismo look like? No one knows yet. That being said, we can expect the new GranTurismo to carry over the lineup’s distinguishing features such as a unique engine hood, sleek, smooth yet defined lines, and aerodynamic design but with contemporary touches here and there.
Same goes for the interior. It should keep the luxurious and modern look while still being a comfortable grand tourer to drive or ride on. Being a flagship model, the 2020 Maserati GranTurismo should also come with the latest technology and features, especially safety features.
In short, while we don’t know yet how the upcoming GranTurismo will look, we can expect it to be a very good-looking, sleek, and stylish grand tourer with luxurious, cutting edge and comfortable interior. That’s right. It should have a good design as the current model at the very least.
Engine Specs & Performance
Maserati has yet to reveal what kind of engine will power the upcoming GranTurismo. Considering how powerful the current engine is, the automaker is unlikely to change it. The current GranTurismo is a lot more powerful than many of its more expensive competitors. With such a powerful engine, we don’t think things will change soon.
The current GranTurismo is powered by a 4.7-liter, V8 Ferrari engine. This engine is capable of generating a whopping 454 horsepower with ease. The GranTurismo lineup has been powered by this engine for its whole existence. And it seems Maserati will not replace the engine, at least not anytime soon.
Although Maserati is likely to keep the V8 Ferrari engine for the upcoming GranTurismo, there will be an electric powertrain option available. The automaker has announced that every vehicle that is released in 2020 will get an electric powertrain. What kind of electric powertrain it will be for the 2020 GranTurismo, only time will tell. At the moment we can only wait for Maserati’s updates.
2020 Maserati GranTurismo Release Date and Price
A new GranTurismo was scheduled to be released in 2020. Then again, Maserati isn’t well-known for timeliness. As of now, the master plan for the new GranTurismo hasn’t even been released yet. Let alone the release date of the upcoming grand tour. For the time being, all we can do is wait for official details from the automaker.
More likely than not, the new GranTurismo wouldn’t be a 2020 model. Some suggest that, at the earliest, the new GranTurismo will arrive in the showroom in 2022. The only thing that we know for sure is that there will be a new GranTurismo though no one knows when it will be released.
Assuming the new GranTurismo will come in two configurations, we can expect two prices for the GranTurismo. The first is the coupe configuration, sold in the $135,000 range. The second is the convertible configuration, sold in the $151,000 range. The prices of the new GranTurismo shouldn’t be too different from these prices.
There isn’t any official confirmation whether the 2020 GranTurismo will be released at the moment. However, Maserati does include the GranTurismo as one of the vehicles that the automaker will release in the foreseeable future.
We expect the 2020 Maserati GranTurismo to be an excellent grand tourer, just like the current and previous models. It will get not just a makeover but also get electrified as well, which certainly is a piece of good news for electric vehicles fans. What do you think?
