ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, New Jersey — The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte, which gets a major upgrade and a streamlined, albeit evolutionary look, will make its formal debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Maserati spelled out the Quattroporte's styling changes on Tuesday, noting that it will be bigger when compared to the 2013 model and retain such elements as the front grille, the three side vents and the triangular C-pillar. The sides of the redesigned Quattroporte get a more sculpted look and the overall appearance is more contemporary.

No confirmation yet on whether the redesign uses a new rear-wheel-drive platform, as had been expected.

Maserati said in a statement that the Quattroporte, which receives its first major overhaul in nearly a decade, "reinterprets the design features of classic Maseratis in a contemporary design language." It said the 2014 Quattroporte will be "more generous in size when compared to the previous model."

Although powertrain specifications were not revealed, significant power increases are expected for Quattroporte's Ferrari-sourced V8 engine. The 2013 Quattroporte with a 4.7-liter V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission returns a dismal 12 mpg in city driving and 18 mpg, according to the EPA.

The redesign is part of Maserati's ambitious new model rollout plan that will see the debut of such models as the Maserati Levante SUV. The refreshed Quattroporte targets the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Pricing, launch date and specifications on the redesigned Quattroporte were not disclosed. Jeffrey F. Ehooden, Maserati's U.S. spokesman, told Edmunds in an e-mailed message that this "is all the information available at this time." The car is expected to roll out first in Europe sometime in 2013, followed by a U.S. launch.

The 2013 Maserati Quattroporte S starts at $132,150, including a $2,600 gas-guzzler tax and a $1,800 destination charge. The uplevel 2013 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS starts at $140,100, including a $2,600 gas-guzzler tax and a $1,800 destination charge.

Edmunds says: Some major changes on tap for Maserati will continue with the rollout of the redesigned 2014 Quattroporte.
