Earlier this year Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne laid out a new product strategy that saw the automaker turn much of its attention towards Jeep and Ram and away from Alfa Romeo. That decision delayed some of Alfa’s product plans until the 2017-2020 timeframe, and Alfa has now revealed what those plans are.
According to a product map published by FCA, Alfa Romeo will bring a full-size sedan, two crossovers, two ‘specialty’ models and a hatchback to market by 2020. The map also includes the introduction of a mid-size crossover for 2017, which we know is the Giulia-based Stelvio.
It’s not clear if this map is chronological, but if it is, the full-size sedan would arrive first. The two crossovers, which will likely consist of a compact crossover to slot in below the Stelvio and a full-size-three row offering, will come after, followed by the two ‘specialty’ models and what we assume will be the new Giulietta hatchback.
Alfa Romeo has delayed its product plans once before and has also taken quite a while to bring the Giulia to market, so let’s hope they can stay on track with this ambitious plan. If they do, we should be with all of the aforementioned models by mid-2020. Fingers crossed.
