Vonn clocked 1min 38.25sec to celebrate the 29th downhill win of her stunning World Cup career, 58th victory in the series and her first win of 2013.
Slovenian Maze was second at 0.43sec while American Leanne Smith finished at 0.89sec to complete the podium, pushing France's Marion Rolland down to fourth.
While Vonn, 28, boosts her lead in the downhill standings, Maze took another step towards her maiden overall title after her main rival, German Maria Hoefl-Riesch, did not finish.
"I'm not happy when other athletes are having troubles," said Maze, who won her first ever World Cup super-G last week at Sankt Anton in Austria to become only the sixth woman to win races in all five alpine disciplines.
"It's part of the sport, you want to compete against the best and I'm not happy if someone is not doing good."
After a first downhill podium at Cortina, Maze now has 1414 points and leads Hoefl-Riesch (744) by a massive 670 points.
