Car manufacturer with some of the best designed car models ever is certainly famous Italian Alfa Romeo. After some interesting rumors about new Alfa, it became obvious that this release is very close. We are talking about new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
Spy shots are revealing that it will most likely be in the same segment as BMW X3 and Porsche Macan. Speaking of exterior design, Stelvio will be something like smaller version Levante, considering it has very similar profile. Rear end of new 2018 Alfa Stelvio is also based on Levante. Up front, it has grille, hood and headlights taken from the Giulia. Inside the cabin, we expect to see much more space at the back. Other details and equipment are basically borrowed from Giulia as well.
2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio engine specs and performance
2018 Stelvio engine will differ depending on the market. In the U.S., we expect to see 2.0-liter petrol engine, with ability to produce 354 horsepower. In Europe, Stelvio will be powered by either 2.0-liter petrol engine with 197 horsepower or 32.0-liter diesel producing up to 207 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Production will be done on the same platform as the one used in Giulia. Stelvio comes with perfect 50-50 weight distribution, along with rear-wheel drive. Optional equipment will include all-wheel drive system. 2018 Alfa Stelvio QV (Quadrifoglio Verde) will be real beast on the road. It will be powered by Ferrari’s 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 from Giulia QV. It will not be a surprise if we see only all-wheel drive Stelvio QV, along with 8-speed automatic transmission.
2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio price and release date
There is still no official information about 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio release date. It should be revealed on the market very soon. 2018 Stelvio price is also unavailable, but it will probably stay in the range up to $50,000. This is very much needed if Alfa wants to stay competitive on the market.
