Alfa Romeo Giulia Coming to US with 2.0T

Details on the U.S.-spec Alfa Romeo Giulia have been revealed.

The car will arrive in North America with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 276 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. That allows the car to run from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5.5 seconds.

There will be three different Giulia models available in the U.S., the base Giulia, the Giulia Turismo Internazionale (Ti) and the high-performance Giulia Quadrifoglio, which uses a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 which makes 505 hp. Alfa Q4 all-wheel drive is available with the Giulia and Giulia Ti, while there will also be sport, luxury and performances packages available, though Alfa didn’t offer details.

The Giulia and Giulia Ti may not have 505 hp, but each car benefits from 50/50 weight distribution and what Alfa calls the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, though actual curb weights weren’t revealed. Even the base car uses a carbon fiber driveshaft, a dual exhaust system and a flat-bottom steering wheel.

Inside, leather seats come standard along with a 7-inch driver info display and either a 6.5-inch or 8.8-inch infotainment screen in the center stack which can be hidden. Push button start, adaptive cruise control and forward collision braking are all available with the car.

Pricing and U.S. launch timing was not announced.
