Robb Report’s "Best of the Best" coverage features comprehensive reviews by their editorial staff and spans 26 product- and service-related categories within six departments. Each category’s selections are based on set guidelines and chosen exclusively by Robb Report editors. The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte has been named "Best of the Best Sedan" by Robb Report in the 25th annual edition of its "Best of the Best" 2013 Luxury Portfolio. The Quattroporte is now available at Jim Ellis Maserati, the newest dealership to join the Jim Ellis family.
The 2014 Quattroporte has a newly developed direct-injection engine that boasts a 523 horsepower 3.8 liter V8 and a 404 horsepower 3.0 liter V6, both of which are twin turbocharged, designed by Maserati Powertrain and assembled by Ferrari. All versions come equipped with the latest eight-speed automatic transmission developed with ZF. The V8 is the fastest, most powerful and efficient four-door Maserati has ever built, reaching 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds and achieving a top speed of 191 miles per hour. The V6 twin turbo Q4 All-Wheel Drive variant is capable of a top speed of 177 miles per hour. The Q4 system is capable of redistributing the torque instantly from full rear wheel drive to a balanced near 50/50 distribution between front and rear wheels when more traction is needed.
