2014 Maserati Ghibli costs $65,600 in the U.S. image

The 2014 Maserati Ghibli has been priced from 65,600 USD over-seas, for the base entry-level version.

Americans will be able to order the brand new Maserati Ghibli soon because the Italian based automaker is currently bringing the first units to the company’s dealerships across the country. According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Maserati Ghibli will set you back for at least 65,600 USD, which is the cost for the base entry-level version. Basically, this means that a Ghibli is more expensive than a similarly equipped Mercedes-Benz E-Class or BMW 5-Series, which are its main rivals, but the brand is planning to attract customers with the mix of prestige and sportiness.

The cheapest version of the Maserati Ghibli will become available with a 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 engine, which is producing a total output of 345 HP (257 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. This is enough to allow the sedan to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 165 mph (266 km/h). This version is followed by the Ghibli S, which has 404 HP (301 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) from the same unit. The 0 to 60 mph takes 4.7 seconds and top speed stands at 175 mph (282 km/h).
