Fiat Chrysler has released the full details on the U.S. spec Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan today ahead of the compact car’s launch later this year. As we predicted, the 2.2-liter diesel four-cylinder will not be available in North America, with the only engine options being the 2.0-liter turbocharged four and the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 in the high performance Quadrifoglio Verde.
Under the hood of the Giulia and Gulia Ti, Alfa’s direct-injection turbo engine produces 276 horsepower and is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This helps the sedan achieve a 0-62 mph time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph, putting its performance on par with other four-cylinder turbocharged sedans on the market like Cadillac ATS and BMW 328i.
The Giulia and Giulia Ti also include a class-exclusive carbon fiber driveshaft, a dual exhaust system and on the Giulia Ti, an optional four-channel active suspension system. Inside there’s leather seating, a 7-inch full-color driver information display, a 6.5-inch or 8.8-inch widescreen infotainment display, Alfa’s ‘DNA’ drive mode selector, keyless go, passive entry and remote start.
Also optional on both the Giulia and Giulia Ti is Alfa’s Q4 all-wheel drive system. Sport, Luxury and Performance packages will “further add to this Alfa Romeo model’s performance and style,” the automaker says, but it has not yet disclosed exactly what those trim packages will bring to the table.
Pricing and further details are to be announced.
