Even it has fallen behind the time, the newest Maserati GranTurismo continues to be a head-turner with its seductive styling and appeal. Some of the highlights for the 2017 model include usable rear seats, gorgeous inside and out, highly customizable interior, engaging drive quality, and a fantastic V8 soundtrack. The Maserati GranTurismo release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
The Maserati GranTurismo interior redesign in itself is drop-dead gorgeous and we wouldn’t think any less of you if you fell in love with it based on its looks alone. The appealing looks are further enhanced with the seductive curves and sporty aggression. With nine years now on its shadows, the vehicle has still managed to remain a desirable object both in function and appearance.
There’s no denying the fact that nine years is an eternity in autodom especially considering the level of competition that continues to rise each passing year. Some of the features that make the GranTurismo trail the rest in its class include mediocre performance numbers, and a dated infotainment system. On the upside, though, the vehicle comes laden with well-padded and shaped front seats, sharp handling, a high-revving Ferrari sourced V8, and adjustable Skyhook suspension system.
The 2017 BMW X6 redesign has brought with it features such as powerful engines, ample storage, top-quality interior, and comfortable and hush ride quality. In terms of power, the most powerful model – 2017 BMW X6 xDrive50i generates a breathtaking 445 horsepower and 480 lbs. ft. of torque from the available turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine. For all these specs and more, you get it from an MSRP starting from $60,600, which is a bargain considering the newest Maserati GranTurismo coupe price starts from $132,825.
The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S price starts from an MSRP of $171,500 and for that you get a power output rated at 580 horsepower, which represents a power bump of about 20 horsepower over the previous model. Owners of the Turbo S can now boast of a 0-60 mph in just under three seconds. As compare to the previous model, the new model comes with newer and improved technologies such as upgraded smartphone app connectivity, and a faster responding touchscreen with Google Maps integration. The 2017 Turbo S release date should be expected sometime before this fall, and two months or so later for the Turbo S Convertible.
