2019 Maserati Ghibli Ratings & Reliability
Although it is based on a platform shared with the Chrysler 300, the Ghibli has its own 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, the rear seat is cramped, and the Ghibli is louder than most sporty luxury sedans. 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.

Maserati Ghibli 2018
The Ghibli is Maserati's more-attainable luxury sedan. It uses a Ferrari-developed 345-hp, turbo V6 mated to an eight-speed automatic, driving the rear wheels. The SQ 4 all-wheel-drive version has a 404-hp turbo V6. The platform is based on the Chrysler 300, but the Ghibli's interior, driving dynamics, and exhaust note are all Italian. Handling is sporty and agile, and the engine emits a distinctive bark. The interior is full of high quality leather and suede, and most controls are easy to use, including Chrysler's UConnect touch screen. The ride is stiff and the rear seat is cramped.
