Ghibli Diesel - Technology

The first diesel car in Maserati’s history delivers sporty performance

The Ghibli Diesel is the first diesel-powered car in Maserati’s history: underneath the engine hood there is an innovative 3 litre V6 unit incorporating all the benefits of the very latest diesel engine technology. The engine is still very much in keeping with the Maserati tradition thanks to its sporty temperament and 275 HP capacity (also in 250 HP in Italy) which enables the car to surge from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds, with a top speed of 250 km/h.


Efficiency and fuel saving

The performance figures speak volumes about the excellent efficiency of the Ghibli Diesel’s engine, which is reflected even more clearly by its fuel consumption and emissions data: 6.3 l/100 km and 167 g/km in the mixed cycle are extremely impressive values, achieved partly thanks to the Stop&Start system that shuts down the engine whenever the car stops and restarts it automatically when it is time to move again. The system can also be deactivated using buttons on the steering wheel.

Maserati Active Sound System

A Maserati is also recognisable by its engine sound: the Ghibli Diesel’s strong sporty nature is also strongly conveyed in this department thanks to the introduction of the new Maserati Active Sound system. Two sound actuators, fitted near the exhaust tailpipes, enhance the engine’s most attractive sounds. When the driver presses the Sport button on the central tunnel, this roar becomes even more aggressive and thrilling. 

The automatic transmission responds to driving style and road conditions

 The Ghibli Diesel benefits from the potential of a next-generation eight-speed ZF automatic transmission: lightweight, high-performance and a guarantee of precision gear shifting, it is controlled by auto-adaptive software able to recognise driving style and road conditions and adapt the gear changing mode accordingly. There are five operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and I.C.E. (Increased Control & Efficiency).
