Although it is based on a platform shared with the Chrysler 300, the Ghibli has its distinct sporty character.
The Ferrari-developed V6 turbo engine is mated to a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.
Handling is agile, the brakes are strong, and the engine emits a thrilling bark.
But the stiff ride can grow fatiguing and the rear seat is cramped.
Climbing into or out of this low-slung sports sedan can be a challenge.
The interior is outfitted with high-quality leather and suede, and most controls are easy to use, except for the unintuitive gear selector.
Chrysler's Uconnect touch screen is a plus, but it's hard not to notice some cheap-looking switches that are sourced from the Chrysler parts bins.
The top-line V6 recently gained 20 hp, and a turbo V8-powered Trofeo version was added.
Though BSW is standard, FCW and AEB are optional.
