2022 Maserati Ghibli Special Edition Red brings a ton of Italian attitude to the mid-size luxury sedan party. Ghibli’s styling and performance make it endearing, plus its relative obscurity means it turns heads

The Maserati Ghibli presents a more luxury-oriented design while the Modena and Trofeo lean heavily on more aggressive design themes to project their performance. 

The outside is distinguished by chrome fascia accents. Completely restyled bumpers featuring black inserts, and 20-inch wheels.

 The Maserati Ghibli will generate power from the 3.0-liter twin-turbo making 345 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The Ghibli Modena will boast a 424-horsepower version of the V6 with 428 lb-ft of torque. The top-tier Ghibli Trofeo returns with its Ferrari-built 580-horsepower twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8.

Inside, there will be ultra-stylish and comfortable “wraparound” leather seats. The cabin isn’t as luxurious as expected. A few of its interior bits are sourced from lesser vehicles within the Stellantis product portfolio. The Ghibli with beautifully stitched leather-and-silk seats, a faux-suede headliner, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. The Ghibli’s trunk is larger than that of the E-class.

All Ghibli models come with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features a glossy display and runs a re-skinned version Google’s Android Automotive interface. Navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all standard. An eight-speaker audio system is standard, too, but audiophiles will be happy to know that Maserati offers two different premium systems as upgrades. The first is a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon setup, while the second is a 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system.
