Maserati Simplifies Its Sedan and SUV Trims for 2022
As it moves away from its Ferrari ties, Maserati is starting to expand its luxury and performance offerings. And the new Maserati supercar is just one example. Moving into 2022, the Italian brand is restructuring how it organizes its non-supercar vehicles. In other words, the 2022 Maserati Levante SUV, as well as the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans, have a new trim-level layout.
The 2022 Maserati Levante SUV keeps the Trofeo but gets two new lower trims
Although the 2022 Maserati Levante SUV has a new trim-level layout, one of its trims should ring familiar. As before, the high-performance Levante Trofeo serves as the range-topping model. Only instead of the 2021 Levante’s four total trims, the 2022 model just has three. Though sadly, the Levante Hybrid isn’t one of them.
For 2022, the base Maserati Levante SUV trim is the GT. It comes with 20” wheels, piano-black interior trim, and what the automaker describes as “leather comfort seats.” And under the hood is the same engine found in the 2021 Levante: a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 rated at 345 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Just like before, it’s linked to an eight-speed automatic and an AWD system.
The next trim up on the 2022 Maserati Levante SUV ladder is the Modena. It has the same 20” wheels and piano-black trim as the GT but paired with sportier bumpers with piano-black inserts. Also, just like the 2021 Levante S, the 2022 Levante Modena has a 424-hp, 428-lb-ft version of the 3.0-liter V6.
But the 2022 Levante Modena has a sub-trim: the Modena S. It comes with black brake calipers and the Driver Assistance Pack, which is Maserati’s term for its driver-assistance suite. And it packs the 2021 Maserati Levante GTS’s powerplant: a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged Ferrari-designed V8 with 550 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque.
Finally, there’s the sportiest 2022 Maserati Levante SUV trim, the Trofeo. As before, it comes with a 580-hp version of that Ferrari-built 3.8-liter V8, Roadshow says. And it also has red brake calipers, 22” wheels, carbon-fiber interior trim, and full-grain “Pieno Fiore” leather sport seats. Plus, the blacked-out Nerissimo Package, Motor1 reports.
It’s a similar story for the 2022 Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans
Previously, the Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans used a similar trim layout to the Levante SUV. In the Ghibli’s case, there was the base car, the S, the AWD S Q4, and finally the Trofeo. As for the 2021 Quattroporte, it started with the S trim; next was the S Q4 and then the Trofeo.
For 2022, it’s much the same. Like the Levante SUV, the 2022 Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte are available in GT, Modena, and Trofeo forms. And the sedans make just as much power as their SUV equivalents, MotorTrend notes. However, only the Levante offers a Modena S trim.
But the 2022 Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte trims aren’t 100% identical to their Levante equivalents. For example, the Levante GT has 20” wheels, while the Ghibli and Quattroporte GT have 19” wheels. And instead of piano-black interior trim, the Quattroporte GT has wood trim, whereas the Ghibli GT has ‘Dark Mirror’ trim.
The subtle differences continue with the other trims. Like the Levante Modena, the Ghibli and Quattroporte Modena have 20” alloy wheels and sporty bumpers. But while the Quattroporte Modena gets piano-black interior trim, the Ghibli Modena keeps its ‘Dark Mirror’ trim. And instead of 22” wheels, the Trofeo sedans have 21” wheels.
How much do these 2022 Maserati models cost?
As of this writing, Maserati hasn’t released pricing details for its 2022 SUV and sedan trims. For comparison, the 2021 Levante Trofeo starts at $153,090. The 2021 Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo respectively start at $110,240 and $142,890.
If you’re interested, all three 2022 Maserati models are available to order today. And hopefully, the new trim names should simplify the picking process.
