Thanks to cautious lenses of spy cameras we are now able to show you just how the prototype of the 2018 Ghibli looks like while undergoing winter tests. As you can see the spied prototype is wearing car bra-style cladding over its front end and bumpers, which just means we are getting new headlights design as well as somewhat updated front fascia.
The rear end of the car will feature some changes, and as we can see from the pictures, it will most likely host a more prominent diffuser-style element between the two sets of dual exhaust tips. As these things go, the facelift involves (besides the refresh on the front light cluster) the upgrade on the rear light cluster as well. Although the ones that are on now look pretty nice, we believe that different tail-light graphics will find their way when production car hits the market.
According to some info, we think that besides the exterior refresh some of it will find its way inside, to the engine bay to be precise. It is believed that Maserati will update its current 3.0 L twin turbo V6 that is offered with 345 HP and 369 lb-ft, 405 HP and 406 lb-ft, and the 247 HP and 271 HP depending on the trim of your choice. The interior of the 2018 Maserati Ghibli is expected to get some slight updates but keep its usual round of trim upgrades. The minor update of the interior will probably be tied to the new infotainment system with a larger touchscreen interface.
2018 Maserati Ghibli Release Date
The unveil of the 2018 Maserati Ghibli is expected to be somewhere just before or on the Frankfurt motor show in September, and when you think about it, it seems like a sure bet. The only bad thing is that if it gets unveiled in September, it most definitely won’t make it to the Aussie market until some time in 2018.
