Just a few years ago, Alfa Romeo introduced a brand-new compact luxury crossover utility vehicle to their lineup of models. With a front engine and all-wheel drivetrain, the Stelvio delivered the same sportiness – in both design and performance – as fans of the brand had come to expect from its vehicles, and we’re pleased to provide the newest version of the vehicle, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, right here and now in Kenosha WI.
Based on a concept vehicle introduced all the way back in 2003, the Stelvio was actually the Alfa Romeo brand’s first production SUV. Built on the Giorgio platform from FCA, it shares its base with models from Maserati, Dodge and Jeep. The Stelvio name was inspired by the highest mountain pass in Italy, the Stelvio Pass.
Powered by an all-aluminum 2.0L turbocharged 3-cylinder engine, the Stelvio is capable of generating 280 horsepower – which is the best-in-class for the Premium Important Midsize SUV segment – alongside 306 pound-feet of torque. Tethered to a Q4 All-Wheel Drive system and an 8-speed automatic transmission, plus its near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, you know the 2019 Stelvio will deliver incredible performance and handling. To be a bit more specific, the Stelvio has a top speed of 144 miles per hour and can get from a complete stop up to 60 miles per hour in just 5.4 seconds.
But the Stelvio isn’t just a performance-based crossover, it’s also a premium utility vehicle. In other words, it’s packed with incredible content just as much as it’s packed with performance specs & features. With features and technologies such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus, Alfa DNA Drive Mode Selector, steering wheel-mounted audio & Bluetooth controls and so much more, you’re going to enjoy every experience you have on the road behind the wheel of your Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
