Maserati GranTurismo, Quattroporte to feature Pentastar V6 engine from Chrysler image

Maserati is preparing to have a lineup that will feature variants boasting turbocharger from Chrysler.

As of last month, we have heard that Maserati was putting a lot of efforts on an entry-level sedan model that will be presented to challenge its rivals with the looks including Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, and Audi A6. It has also been reported that the model will feature a turbocharged version of none other than Chrysler’s, a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 that delivers 400 bhp (298 kW / 406 PS).

Following the last months news, we have now been reported that the sources close to Maserati are presenting information that a 3.0 liter twin-turbo version of the similar Pentastar V6 will also be housed in the future models of the Quattroporte and GranTurismo. Currently, these two cars are accommodating Ferrari-supplied V8 engines. This news is directly coming from Inside Line where the sources have struggled to bring up some spicy news about the Maserati’s future lineup.

Though, we don’t have any details further, but at least we can hope to see some unique additions under the hood of these cars. Remained is the revelation package from Maserati when it will stand in front of public and talk about their currently hidden projects.

    One wonders how potential Maserati customers will react to their Italian stallion's prime mover being sourced from Chrysler, instead of Ferrari. For God's sake, they'll have the same engine from a Jeep! Hardly the stuff of Fangio fantasy, no matter how well it works or sonorous it sounds.
