The all-black Edizione Ribelle package will be limited to 100 Levante SUVs, 100 Ghibli sedans, and 25 Quattroporte luxury cars.
- Italian automaker Maserati adds an Edizione Ribelle limited-edition package across all three cars in its lineup for 2020.
- To maintain exclusivity, 100 Levante SUVs, 100 Ghibli sedans, and just 25 Quattroporte luxury cars will be built with the all-black package.
- Elsewhere, the GranSport trim on all three models benefits from more standard equipment for 2020, and the entire lineup receives new, lower prices.
A litany of new software additions helps corral the F8’s burly V-8, and are controlled via the manettino drive-mode switch on that steering wheel. Ferrari’s latest Side Slip Angle Control traction- and stability-control program is present and allows even not-good drivers to appear heroic behind the wheel. (In our experience, the feature helps drivers steer and lay the power down with less finesse and without expensive consequences.) The Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, which is an electronic program for managing drifts and not, ahem, the social boost equitable to purchasing a Ferrari, can now be used in the hard-core, otherwise hands-off Race drive mode.
Maserati, maker of performance-oriented luxury cars and SUVs, is already pretty exclusive, selling just 11,100 units in 2019. For 2020, the brand is launching the Edizione Ribelle limited-edition package across all three of its models, which will be even rarer. The Ribelle package adds Nero Ribelle Mica black paint, black chrome exterior detailing, and 20-inch dark gray wheels.
But it’s not just all-black everything. There are pops of red in the form of red-painted brake calipers and Nero and Rosso (black and red) two-tone leather upholstery–a first for Maserati. The Edizione Ribelle package will be limited to just 225 cars–100 Levantes, 100 Ghiblis, and 25 Quattroportes–and will be offered only on GranSport trims in all-wheel-drive S Q4 guise.
The Edizione Ribelle isn’t the only update Maserati is making to its lineup for 2020; the GranSport trim of each of the three models gains a few extra standard features. Among them are luxury features such as soft-close doors and a heated steering wheel, plus a suite of driver-assistance features. The new standard tech on the GranSport trim includes forward-collision warning with automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and a 360-degree exterior camera system.
A new GT Sport package will be offered on non-GranSport models to give them a sportier appearance. The package adds the more aggressive GranSport’s front and rear bumper designs, piano-black interior trim, and red, blue, or black painted brake calipers. Ghibli and Quattroporte models will come with unique 20-inch wheel designs, while the Levante will roll on 21s.
Maserati tells us that the 2020 models, including ones with these new packages, are in production now and should reach dealerships in March. On all models, entry-level pricing will be cheaper for 2020. The 2020 Ghibli will start at $70,985, a $5490 discount over the 2019 model, while the 2020 Levante will start $2990 lower than the 2019 model at $74,485. The flagship Quattroporte gets the steepest discount, starting at $101,485: that’s $8190 less than last year. The Edizione Ribelle models cost slightly more, at $93,285, $98,485, and $120,985 respectively, which is expected considering they’re well-equipped GranSport models.
