Ghibli 2018 Model

I have Ghibli 2014 (leased) that I will be returning to dealer in Sep 2017. Any idea (sorry if this was asked before) when 2018 model will be available. I actually plan to lease a new one, but I also want it to be customized to my need. Anyone did actually order the car? How long it takes? I did build my BMW M3 and 535xi to my needs and it took few months to deliver.

Thank you all.

Difficult to say, as it varies from country to country.
They have to ship to the US too.

Just to give you a Very rough idea, so you can "guesstimate"

To have a 2017 model done to my spec in France : ~2 1/2" months.

Export + Shipping + Import I'd guess to add at least 1 to 1 1/2 month.

Recently, there were several reports published in the press about the upcoming Ghibli 2018 model year. Apart from some exterior updates, there has been mention in the reports of the standard Ghibli SQ4 getting the 430 HP engine of the Levante, while two higher positioned versions reportedly could get a 450 HP V6 and even a 500+ HP V8 from the Quattroporte. Does anybody in this forum have any more specific information about these options and which ones could realistically expected as part of the next model year?


Grateful for any insights.

I have a similar dilemma - due to the 2014/2015 reliability etc. I leased a 2016. My intention was (is?) to buy a 2018 if the power is available as per the 5 yr plan that showed that Ghibli would have the option of the same engine as Quattroporte in SQ4 at 520 HP and RWD of 450HP. The power for Levante available today is from the that .plan.


I have had no issues with my SQ4 until a recent trip to FLA where the AC on the passenger side/and seats stopped working due to bad pipe/hose and Freon loss etc; this after only 14,000 miles and being based in NYC metro area so AC usage not that high.

If the power (without ECU tune from 3rd party) is not up to 450 HP + by the time to order a 2018 I am leaning towards NOT getting another Ghibli.


What to do? Lease a Quadofoglio - that has 505HP of a different Ferrari engine?; buy a new Jag (5 yr bump-to-bump + maintenance ) XF / F Pace / F-Type; buy off 2 year lease an SVR with similar warranty? etc.etc

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know when the 2018 model will debut to the public? I've only seen the 'spy' shots.

This can be different from country to country. All I will do is to contact a dealer and I will find out.

They have no clue. However, they are pushing me to get out of the lease earlier and get 2017 model and mentioning a good deal. I didn't ask for potential conditions of the deal because I either will get 2018 model if before Sept, if not I am considering Tesla Model S P100D.

Typically, new model years are available for sale starting in September of the prior year. So the 18 model will be available in September 17. Not sure the lead time for when they finalize the design. Probably May/June.

Gasso,

This looks good. Out of curiosity, what is the source of this information (of course if you van reveal it)?
