In the US the X3 will be available either as the X3 xDrive28i, which is powered by a 3.0L inline six-cylinder with 240 horsepower or the X3 xDrive35i that is powered by the turbocharged 3.0L inline-six with 300 horsepower. The xDrive35i reaches 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds and has a top speed of 150 mph when its equipped with the optional Sport package. The engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2014 SMALLER MASERATI SEDAN
Maserati is currently working on a new smaller sedan that will go head to head with the BMW 5 Series/ M5, Mercedes CLS/AMG and Cadillac CTS/CTS-V. The new sedan will be smaller than the current Quattroporte and should debut sometime in 2014 as a 2015 model. The new sedan would strengthen Maserati’s brand visibility and make it more relevant in its luxury segment.
