The 2021 Maserati Ghibli, Quattroporte and Levante have arrived in the United States with a host of styling and technology updates.

Starting with the brand’s entry-level sedan, the 2021 Ghibli features a revised grille that is “even more elegant and unmistakable” than before. It features vertical chrome bars on the GranLusso, while piano black bars help to distinguish the GranSport trim.

The styling changes continue out back as the model adopts new taillights with a “boomerang” design. They also feature a tri-color effect as there are black edges, a red center section and a white lower area.

Bigger changes occur in the cabin as the previous 8.4-inch infotainment system gives way to a larger 10.1-inch system which uses the Android Automotive operating system. It’s a big improvement as it features a higher resolution display, multi-touch functionality and a new graphic interface. The system also has a frameless design as well as a curved upper section for a “more elegant, less sharp-edged effect.”

Elsewhere, the instrument cluster has an upgraded 7-inch display which is flanked by analog gauges with new graphics. The cluster also eschews much of the previous plastic for anti-dazzle glass which helps to give the model a “more high-tech look.”

Under the hood, there’s a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that has outputs of 345 hp (257 kW / 350 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) as well as 424 hp (316 kW / 430 PS) and 428 lb-ft (580 Nm). Customers can also upgrade to the Ghibli Trofeo which has a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 pumping out 580 hp (433 kW / 588 PS) and 538 lb-ft (729 Nm) of torque. The latter model accelerates from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 203 mph (326 km/h).

The changes to the Quattroporte mirror those applied to the Ghibli, but the flagship sedan is only available with two engines. The entry-level Quattroporte S has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 with 424 hp (316 kW / 430 PS) and 428 lb-ft (580 Nm) of torque. Moving up to the Trofeo rewards buyers with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 that develops 580 hp (433 kW / 588 PS) and 538 lb-ft (729 Nm) of torque.

Lastly, there’s the Levante which features a revised grille as well as boomerang taillights like the rest of the Maserati lineup. While the crossover comes with the new instrument cluster, it sticks with an 8.4-inch infotainment system. That’s a bit disappointing, but the system features a higher resolution display, new graphics and a revised design that “makes it look like a single curved screen with the air vents cut into it.”

The Levante is available with the same engines as the Ghibli, but they’re joined by a detuned twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 pumping out 550 hp (410 kW / 558 PS) and 538 lb-ft (729 Nm) of torque. It enables the Levante GTS to run from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in four seconds flat, before topping out at 181 mph (292 km/h).

Besides the aforementioned changes, the 2021 Maserati lineup gains Active Driving Assist. Billed as an evolution of Highway Assist, Active Driving Assist combines adaptive cruise control with a lane centering function. Maserati says it can be used on any well-maintained road at speeds up to 90 mph (145 km/h), not just highways.

Also new is a Maserati Connect service, which allows owners to remotely monitor and control their vehicle using the Maserati Connect app as well as personal assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assist. It can also be used contact assistance in emergencies and locate the vehicle if it’s stolen.

Pricing starts at $74,390 for the Ghibli and $77,890 for the Levante. Likewise, the Quattroporte begins at $104,390 and climbs to $142,390 for the range-topping Trofeo variant. However, those prices excludes a destination charge of $1,495 for the Ghibli and Levante as well as $1,995 for the Quattroporte.

Alfa Romeo is introducing the new Veloce Ti variant in their European 2021 Stelvio range for those who want the absolute best from their Stelvio, this side of the ultra-hot Quadrifoglio.

The new 2021 Stelvio Veloce Ti can be distinguished by its Quadrifoglio-inspired exterior look, comprised of a new rear bumper and diffuser, as well as a set of new 21-inch alloy wheels – a first for the Stelvio.

The cabin shares more Quadrifoglio details, including sports seats in leather and Alcantara, black headliner, and real carbon fiber accents. The new Stelvio Veloce Ti also comes with dark window surrounds and exterior badges, as well as tinted windows.

European customers looking to get the new Stelvio Veloce Ti will have to choose between the 280 HP 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder petrol and the 210 HP 2.2-liter diesel, both paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the company’s Q4 all-wheel-drive system.

For the 2021 model year, both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia are available with a bundle of the company’s latest connected services, including remote functions like vehicle location, sending destinations to the navigation system, sharing the internet connection with up to 8 devices, and more.

In addition, Alfa Romeo’s models feature a Level 2 driver assistance package that combines Lane Keeping Assist, Active Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition, Traffic Jam Assist, and Highway Assist, and Driver Attention Assist among others.

Alfa Romeo has begun accepting orders for the 2021 Stelvio and Giulia models, which are set to hit the major European markets in early 2021. There’s no word yet on whether or when we’ll see similar offerings in America for the Stelvio lineup.

Mercedes-Benz Vans has announced plans to develop an all-new Electric Versatility Platform for the next-generation eSprinter.

The company is investing €350 ($423 / £315) million into the architecture and has fast-tracked its development.

While the company didn’t go into many specifics, they confirmed the platform will use “three modules that allow freedom in the development and design of different body types.” The front module will contain high-voltage components such as charging equipment and a DC/DC converter, while the center module will house an underbody high-voltage battery pack. The third and final module has a rear e-axle with a “compact and powerful electric motor.”

The modular design allows for greater flexibility, and Mercedes said the next-generation eSprinter will be offered with two wheelbases and three different battery packs. All versions will be rear-wheel drive, but the platform will have “higher maximum payloads allowing for almost every conceivable body variant possible.” Speaking of which, Mercedes suggested there will be truck and van variants as well as ambulances and grocery transporters.

While that isn’t much to go on, the company said they’re “convinced of the ecological and economic advantages of battery-electric vans and will continue to push forward plans to bring electrically powered vans to market in all segments.” Mercedes also noted the next-generation eSprinter is being developed with the U.S. and Canadian markets in mind.

That’s a significant change as Mercedes hasn’t brought the current eSprinter to America due to high homologation costs and a less than impressive WLTP combined range of 96 miles (154 km). The company will undoubtedly address these issues with the new model, but there’s no word on how far it will be able to travel.
