We are seeing all three variants of the new generation Maserati Gran Turismo. Well, just the outside, as interior photos are still locked away, scheduled for a later release. Nevertheless, buyers of the 2023 Maserati Gran Turismo have a choice between the V6-powered Modena and Trofeo and the full-electric Folgore.
The outgoing model of the Gran Turismo went through an extensive production lifespan from 2007 to 2019. This new generation looks similar from a distance, but all its details have evolved to cope with the modern world. Nevertheless, we still get a long, clamshell hood with integrated vents, a low nose, and fender-mounted headlights inspired by the Maserati MC20.
The 2023 Maserati Gran Turismo lineup started with the Modena, offering a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 Netturo engine producing 490-hp and 442.5 lb.-ft of torque. While entry-level, the Gran Turismo Modena offers an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a top speed of 188 mph. Standard features on ICE variants include cylinder deactivation technology and five drive modes: Comfort, GT, Sport, Corsa, and ECS-Off.
Next on the lineup is the Gran Turismo Trofeo, with a more potent variant of the V6 making 550-hp and 479.4 lb.-ft of torque. This variant also receives an electronic self-locking differential and a higher top speed of 199 mph. Last but not least is the Gran Turismo Folgore with a fully electric powertrain offering a combined output of 751-hp and 995.7 lb.-ft of torque. As a result, this variant is the quickest of the three and the most powerful production model in Maserati’s history.
The Maserati Gran Turismo Folgore achieves zero to 60 in 2.7-seconds and onward to a top speed of 199 mph. One key visual difference separating the Folgore from the other Gran Turismo variants is the car’s lack of quad-tip tailpipes. However, all Gran Turismo variants feature double-wishbone suspension with electronically controlled air springs as standard. Pricing for the 2023 Maserati Gran Turismo will be announced before they arrive at dealers in the second quarter of 2023.
