The current sixth-generation Quattroporte was introduced in 2013. With a 3,171 mm (124.8 in) wheelbase, it is larger than any of its predecessors and sets itself apart from the smaller Ghibli, which shares its underpinnings. Engine choice includes twin-turbocharged V6 and V8 petrol engines, as well as a turbodiesel.
Drive-trains, platform, suspension, and body elements such as the front doors are common to the Quattroporte and the Ghibli sedan. Initially the range included the V8 twin-turbo, rear-wheel drive Quattroporte GTS and the V6 twin-turbo, Quattroporte S, available with Q4 all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive depending on the market. The flagship GTS can be distinguished from its trapezoidal instead of round tail pipes. A V6 turbodiesel model for European markets was introduced in 2013.
The 3.0-liter (182 cu in) 60° V6 produces 404 bhp (301 kW; 410 PS), while the 3.8-liter 90º V8 produces 523 bhp (390 kW; 530 PS). Both use one turbocharger per cylinder bank, twin intercoolers, and are direct injection. A 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine is also available, with 275 PS (202 kW; 271 bhp) The 2014 Quattroporte GTS accelerated from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds, and ran the 1/4 mile in 12.7 seconds in Car and Driver's December, 2014 road test.
