2014 Maserati Quattroporte Gets New Engine Options


Though the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte won’t make its official public debut until January’s Detroit Auto Show, the Italian automaker revealed pictures of the stunning new sedan earlier this month.

Though details are lacking, we did confirm that the new Quattroporte will be longer than the outgoing model, offering up more passenger room on the inside. It will be lighter, and it will come to market with a choice of both V-6 and V-8 engines, which were the subject of speculation until now.

Autoevolution (via Teamspeed) is reporting that the base engine in the 2014 Quattroporte will be a 3.0-liter, aluminum-block, turbocharged and direct-injected V-6, good for an estimated 410 horsepower.  This is expected to produce a 0-60 mph run in the five-second range, with a top speed of 177 mph.

If you believe that a Maserati must have a V-8, the second option will be a 3.8-liter, aluminum-block, twin-turbo direct injected V-8, said to be good for 530 horsepower. This engine should deliver a 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds, as well as a top speed of 191 mph.

As with the current 4.7-liter V-8, both will be built in Ferrari’s plant in Maranello, Italy. The single choice of gearbox in the new Quattroporte will be a ZF-built eight-speed automatic, which should help with both performance and fuel economy. An all-wheel drive option is also expected for the first time.

We’ll bring you full details on the new Maserati as part of our comprehensive 2012 Detroit Auto Show coverage.
