“The all-new Stelvio, named after one of the greatest driving roads in the world – the Stelvio pass in the Italian Alps – sets a new benchmark for the segment. Stelvio is uniquely engineered to challenge two-door sports cars on the track, without sacrificing any of the characteristics you would expect from a premium SUV, resulting in the perfect mix of high performance, capability and Italian design”
– Reid Bigland, CEO, Alfa Romeo
Specs & Features
To give you an idea of just how well the Stelvio blends the necessities of an SUV with the performance specs & features that premium buyers crave, we thought we’d first cover the new Alfa Romeo model’s utility and then its powertrain. While we don’t yet have specific dimension specs for the Stelvio, we can tell from images that it will offer plenty of cargo capacity behind the back seat. Additionally, it will be equipped with 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, maximizing the crossover’s versatility.
When it comes to power, the 2018 Stelvio will be equipped with a standard, all-aluminum 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine capable of doling out 280 horsepower alongside 306 pound-feet of torque and hitting a top speed of 144 mph. Tethered to an 8-speed automatic transmission, you know the Stelvio will deliver a fun driving experience each time you get behind the wheel. Additionally, it is rumored that there will be an available engine option capable of generating up to 505 horsepower.
