Stelvio Future and New SUVs by Alfa Romeo
The early success of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio made FCA bosses look forward. A rise in sales records will push the development of new units. According to plans, there are two Alfa Romeo crossovers SUVs on the way. One will be bigger than the base Stelvio, and another is smaller. Certain thing is that these vehicles will also get hybrid engines. On the other hand, we still don’t know if they will go after high-output versions, such as Quadrifoglio.
Plans are official, but there are no words about the release date, price, specs, or features of 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Siblings. The FCA is ready to take over the SUV and crossover markets with recent moves. Dodge Durango is heading into a new generation on the new platform. While the flagship model moves to the body on frame platform, it leaves more room in the mid-size segment for Jeep Grand Cherokee.
