It is rumoured that the next Ghibli will be built on a modified version of the Chrysler 300 chassis and will feature more Chrysler technology than Maserati.

Under the hood it will feature a turbocharged version of Chrysler’s 3.5-litre Pentastar V6 with an output of about 279kW to 298kW. Along with the V6, the automaker will also offer the same Ferrari-sourced V8 used in the new Quattroporte. Both engines will be mated to an 8 speed, ZF transmission. Expect to see the new car launched sometime in 2013.
