The 2021 Maseratis are serving unapologetic speed and style. The prolific automotive brand just refreshed the entire line of vehicles, rolling out a new Model Year 2021 Quattroporte, Ghibli, and Levante. The three vehicles just came over to the U.S. from Italy at the end of 2020 and are now heading to market. Departures got a sneak peek at the newly arrived 2021 Model Year Maseratis—not just to test drive them, but to appreciate every detail of the newly minted Maseratis’ style.
One of the main goals of the 2021 refresh is to stylistically unite the Quattroporte, Ghibli, and Levante. In terms of exterior improvements, all three models feature new front grilles and rear lights. But it’s the enhanced artistry on the interior that brings the cars to the next level of luxury this year.
The high-fashion interiors, with pristine black or rich burgundy leather and distinctive stitching are what you’ll first notice as you peek inside the car. The next feature to catch your eye is the sophisticated display on the dashboard. From the graphic interface to the delicate glass screens, the precision will remind luxury buyers of an impeccably designed watch face. Stepping inside doesn’t just feel like entering a race car—it’s like opening the door to a piece of contemporary art. The new age technology—including the latest generation multimedia system with HD screens and Maserati Intelligent Assistant—is seamlessly integrated into the elegant design. Luxurious user-experience feels like an understatement when you’re sitting behind the wheel.
The 2021 refresh extends to the Trofeo level of all three vehicles. Trofeo is Maserati’s fastest and most powerful collection, synonymous with elite performance and design. It’s also the line we test drove, including testing the 2021’s new Corsa Driving Mode in Launch Control, which can blast the driver behind the wheel of the Ghibli Trofeo from 0 to 100 (kilometers per hour) in 4.3 seconds.

The new Trofeo versions of the Model Year 2021 Quattroporte, Ghibli, and Levante, boasts 580 horsepower V8 engines. It’s the first time the Quattroporte has been powered by a V8—and the Quattroporte and Ghibli Trofeos can now get to 203 miles per hour on the track. The Quattroporte Trofeo is available from $142,390, and the Ghibli starts at $109,890.
