Alfa Romeo debuts Stelvio SUV at New York Auto Show

Alfa Romeo is bringing the 2018 Stelvio and Stelvio Ti suv to North America and has introduced both at the New York International Auto Show.

The Stelvio and Stelvio Ti models provide a wide-ranging list of standard features, including an all-aluminum, 2.0-liter, direct-injection turbo I-4 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, delivering 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque, Alfa DNA drive mode selector, class-exclusive carbon fiber driveshaft, dual exhaust with bright tips, 18-inch aluminum wheels (available 19- and 20-inch wheels), leather seating, backup camera with rear park sensors, remote start, passive entry with keyless & go, Formula One-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel with integrated push-button start.

The intelligent Q4 all-wheel-drive (AWD) system is standard on all Stelvio models, including Quadrifoglio and delivers even more traction thanks to the system’s ability to transfer up to 60 percent of the engine’s torque to the front axle.

The available Sport Package adds larger wheels (19-inch wheels for Stelvio and 20-inch wheels for Stelvio Ti), 12-way power high-performance leather seats including 4-way lumbar and power bolster (Ti Sport exclusive), steering column-mounted aluminum paddle shifters, sport steering wheel, gloss-black window trim surround, black roof rails, aluminum sport pedals and footrest, colored brake calipers (red, yellow or gloss-black).

The top of the lineup is the Stelvio Quadrifoglio high-performance SUV with an all-aluminum, direct-injection, 2.9-liter, 24-valve, twin-turbo intercooled V-6 engine, delivering 505 horsepower and 443 lb.-ft. of torque paired with the standard Q4 AWD system, that powers it from 0-60 mph in an estimated 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 177 mph.

Stelvio Quadrifoglio features unique exterior styling, 20-inch aluminum wheels with high-performance Brembo brakes, Alfa DNA Pro with Race Mode and adjustable performance suspension, torque vectoring differential, high-performance leather and Alcantara seats with 14-way power front seats, including 4-way lumbar and power bolsters, Formula One-inspired steering wheel with red push-button start and steering column-mounted aluminum paddle shifters to maximize the all-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s driving pedigree.
