July 12th, 2018 by

The Maserati Q4 range is available on two of Maserati’s models, the spacious Quattroporte supersedan and the stylish Ghibli. The Q4 range offers drivers the ultimate in performance features for a better and more enjoyable driving experience. Whether you’re looking for power under the hood or handling that can take on any road conditions, you’ll get it with a new 2018 Maserati Q4.

The Engine

Both the Ghibli S Q4 and the Quattroporte S Q4 have a twin-turbo Ferrari-made V6 engine that offers drivers a spectacular 424 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque. This engine also gives you a maximum torque of 2,500-4,000 rpm and a displacement of 2,979 cc. With all this power, you’ll love getting behind the wheel of your Maserati Q4 every single day.

Speed and Acceleration

As you might assume from the power offered by the Q4’s V6 engine, you’ll get plenty of speed and an incredible acceleration as well. The top speed of the Ghibli S Q4 is 178 miles per hour, while the Quattroporte can hit a top speed of 179 miles per hour.

Even though the Quattroporte has a higher top speed, the Ghibli’s acceleration just wins out. On a test track, the Ghibli S Q4 was able to go from zero to 62 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds. It took the Quattroporte a hair longer at 4.8 seconds. Whichever way you slice it, these are fast vehicles.

All-Weather Handling

All Maserati Q4 vehicles come standard with an intelligent all-wheel-drive system. This system offers several different driving modes, including sports mode, which engages the rear axel’s limited slip differential to give you the ultimate grip on any road conditions. The system is designed to maintain the same performance, speed, and handling in any weather.

Safety Performance

Maserati offers safety options for all of their vehicles, but the Q4 models all come standard with the Advanced Driver Assistance and Safety Systems. This package offers a suite of safety features that make driving safer than ever before.

Some of the safety performance technology that you’ll get when you purchase a 2018 Ghibli S Q4 or Quattroporte S Q4 are lane keeping assistance, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control with braking, and active blind spot assistance. It also has a small camera in the front of the car that intelligently reads road signs and traffic signals to let you know in advance about stop signs, changes in the speed limit, and approaching red lights.

There are a lot of reasons to get behind the wheel of a Maserati Q4, but the performance features are what will keep you coming back day after day. The purr of the V6 engine, the grip of the tires on slippery roads, and the acceleration that will get your blood pumping are just a few reasons to test-drive one today.
