It isn't a secret that Maserati is planning a product expansion in an attempt sell 50,000 units annually by 2015, but the automaker hasn't officially announced just how it plans to do so. Yes, we've seen (and driven) the 2014 Quattroporte, checked out spy shots for the smaller Ghibli sedan and Maserati even confirmed the Levante name for its SUV, but a leaked document reported by CarScoop could shed some light on how the Italian automaker intends on carrying out its rapid growth.

According to the image, the new Ghibli and Levante models will considerably lower the entry price point for the Maserati brand with the sedan having a price range from around $72,000 up to just over the $100,000 mark, with the SUV starting at close to $80,000 and topping out at almost $200,000. It also looks like the GranTurismo and GranCabrio will be getting redesigned in the near future at which point the new Gran Sport model will be added to the mix – otherwise known as the often-rumored sports car with which Maserati will do battle with the Porsche 911.

      Maybe I'm just reading it wrong, but that SUV looks like it will max out under 150k, not 200k like the post states. I certainly hope that's the case, because I don't see anyone paying nearly 200k for a Maserati anything...let alone an SUV based on a Jeep.

        The right-hand column is in euros, not dollars. It looks like they're estimating a max 125k euros for the Levante -- so anything from $150-200k is a reasonable estimate, depending on the exchange rate.

        Actually it is based off the current Mercedes ML Class SUV which Jeep uses and then Maserati. So you are paying for an over priced benz SUV.

      Am I on the only one a little sad that a once exclusive brand is going to be as common place as Audi and Porsche? I think it's a pity....Masers used to be known for being a bit "special", quirky, and fun. Now they will just be another luxo-brand seen all over the place. The exclusivity will be gone. I know it's good business, but it still makes me sad.....

        Better that than having nothing really at all special, and no range. The 2014 Quattroporte shows that it's luxury with some Italian exotica and sensuousness. I'm excited for Mazza.

      How about Chrysler getting the suspension for the mid size for the all new 200 that is due soon? A new higher end Flag ship sedan called the 500 and a new coupe full size model called the 400. Chrysler is the Premium division and it needs more upscale products to seperate it from the Dodge division. Also a new premium CUV using parts from the Journey. This model should be called the Paciifca. The new Towne and Country could be a larger SUV based on the Durango. Chrysler needs more high end models and new commercials. A new 3 series model is also needed to compete in that vicious market.

      "Technology at the forefront" - weak-sauce. When a newcomer wants to make in-roads you must give a reason to say no to the current choices. I'd say Audi is at the forefront of tech. And Acura went that way too with much less success than Lexus I'd argue.

        Yeah, they definitely aren't technology leaders. I'd say they're leading "classic Italian luxury" though.

      Wow so the top model of the Ghibli is going to be priced below the M5 and E63? That's crazy!
