The sophisticated design of the 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox ensures precise gearshifts and exceptional performance. It is assisted by auto-adaptive software that is able to recognize the way the car is being driven, and modifies the shifting pattern for each individual driver. There are five operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and Increased Control & Efficiency (I.C.E.) for optimal control in any weather conditions.
Those who seek even more exclusivity and ultimate luxury in their Quattroporte can choose the unrestrained opulence of the GranLusso trim, with an interior styled and appointed by the leading Italian fashion house of Ermenegildo Zegna. GranLusso exterior details impart an even more luxurious look to the Quattroporte design, featuring chrome bumper inserts and body-colored sideskirts, black brake calipers and elegant 20-inch Mercurio alloy wheels.
The Quattroporte comes with a choice of two formidable, twin-turbocharged engines: the 404 hp, 3.0-liter V6 used in Quattroporte S and S Q4, and the 523 hp, 3.8-liter V8 used in the ultimate Quattroporte GTS. The engine of every Quattroporte is engineered by Maserati, built by Ferrari and shared by no one.
Adaptive cruise control maintains a constant pre-set distance between the Quattroporte and the vehicle ahead. Furthermore, the system’s Stop & Go function adjusts to the speed of the vehicle in front, until it comes to a complete stop. Adaptive cruise control is standard on the GranLusso trim and optional for all other Quattroporte models.
To reduce lane drift and the possibility of lateral collisions, the lane-departure warning system can help drivers keep the Quattroporte in the chosen lane on highways and main roads by warning when the car crosses lane markings without signaling. The system is standard on the GranLusso trim and optional for all other Quattroporte models.
The Quattroporte can be made even more dynamic with exterior and interior Carbon packages. The exterior package features door mirrors, door handles and central pillars all in sporty carbon fiber, while the interior package comprises a carbon-fiber steering wheel, door sills and interior trim pieces. Both packages can be ordered individually or together for the Quattroporte, and also with the GranSport trim, which then includes the front bumper profile in carbon fiber as well.
In the new Quattroporte, Maserati has created a unique and exclusive car, designed to reflect the discerning tastes of high-achieving individuals who stand apart from the crowd and relish an automobile that does not bow to convention. Naturally, for such a demanding clientele, the Quattroporte is available in three inspirational guises, powered by one of two remarkable engines.
Quattroporte’s cabin is an environment of unsurpassed refinement where clean, minimalist design is enhanced by double-laminated acoustic glass that contributes to a peaceful, quite drive. Here, artisans have given attention to every detail, combining authentic materials like supple Italian leather in a palette of color and stitching combinations, complemented by hand-fitted wood or carbon-fiber trims to create a spacious, supremely comfortable environment for everyone onboard.
Exquisite Italian Zegna silk, colors and sumptuous materials are combined in an absolute masterpiece of aesthetic refinement—one that is unique, as Maserati is the only automobile in the world to feature bespoke silk interiors. Other GranLusso interior enhancements include a wood-and-leather steering wheel, wood trim, power foot pedals, a power rear sunblind, four-zone climate control and heated rear seats.
Maserati North America Inc. provides each new car with a transferable four year or 50,000 mile, whichever comes first, new car limited warranty.
Maserati North America Inc also offers Maserati Roadside Assistance throughout the new car limited warranty period on all new Maserati vehicles sold in the USA and Canada.
Standard on the GranLusso trim and optional for all other Quattroporte models, the system warns if the car’s approach could escalate into a collision. This is linked to an advanced brake-assist system, which can provide additional braking during an emergency stop, as well as an automatic braking system, which can automatically apply the brakes to reduce the car’s speed.
Standard on the Quattroporte, the blind spot detection system assesses the space between the car and other nearby vehicles. An illuminated icon in either door mirror and an audible alert activate when another vehicle enters the side or rear blind spot. The same warning sounds when an oncoming vehicle is detected as the car reverses out of a parking space.
