    Leaked: Alfa Romeo Giulia


    • Another Leak, This time it's the Alfa Romeo Giulia

    Tomorrow, Alfa Romeo will be showing the long awaited Giulia sedan. But the folks at CarScoops got their hands on two pictures before the debut.

     

    The pictures show the model using a number of cues from other Alfa models such as the trunk lid and taillights. Judging from the pictures, it appears this particular Giulia is a performance model with blacked-out wheels and twin-tailpipes.

     

    We'll have more on the Giulia when Alfa Romeo reveals it tomorrow.

    Looks to be too small to be off the Maserati platform, too. I WOULD say it's also too low a price point, but if they're talking "Ferrari-sourced V6" (ciao, Dino!) then maybe Sergio's talk about chasing Bimmer has merit.

    The Maserati platform, if you're referring to the Ghibli, is a chopped up Chrysler LX platform.  There's no stinking way they are cutting the LX down to a 3-series sized vehicle.  So this might be something new.

    Ya, I meant to refer to the Ghibli.

    I suppose it could be a 200 with a heavily-modded front end. I'd be pretty surprised if it was all-new in any event.

    Well the 200 platform could theoretically be RWD because of the way they set up the AWD on that car... but everything ahead of the firewall would need to be new.

    I was trying to find that out from the previous stories we have done. I want to say its rear-drive, but with the number of stories that say Alfa's doing this and then that, I'm really not sure.

    I can't be the only one who thought it was a BMW 3 or 5 series as soon as I saw it, can I?

     

    Maybe it's just the angle, but the lines look like a carbon copy. Is it a brand new model or are they re-using a chasis from someone?

    It's a brand new RWD platform. 

    Interesting. I wonder what it could share with.... maybe a new mid-size Dodge.

     

    That "was" the plan.

    Sad that they spent all this money on new auto's to try and restart Alfa Romeo when they should have put the money into fixing the issues with their existing brands.

    Glass half-full counterpoint: if this chassis does turn out to be RWD-based then we're probably looking at the next Challenger or Cuda, and possibly a stretched version for the 300/Charger. On the high end it may become an entry-level Maserati coupe. Mopar needs such a platform to happen.

    I think there will be a large Alfa sedan off this platform.  Eventually, a LWB version could replace LX.  But some on Allpar think the next 300 will be FWD.

    Hey with a firebreathing Tiger Shark 2.4 and a poorly-tuned 9 speed automatic, it would fit right in as a new Avenger.  :smilewide:

      Alfa Romeo was planning to build out the Giulia lineup with a coupe, convertible, and wagon. But one of those variants has been canned.
      Alfa Romeo's manufacturing chief, Alfredo Altavilla tells Car Magazine that plans for the wagon have been canceled.
      "We decided not to do a Giulia Sportwagon. Do we really need it if the Stelvio SUV [below] drives that well? Maybe not. With our fine-tuning, the Stelvio can capture all the people who would otherwise have been interested in the SW."
      Alfa's reasons for canceling the wagon makes sense. More and more people are turning to the SUVs and crossovers. Why spend the money on developing a model that might not sell as well as an SUV?

      The relaunch of Alfa Romeo has cost Fiat Chrysler Automobiles dearly. Speaking with analysts during the company's fourth-quarter earnings call, CEO Sergio Marchionne said the relaunch cost "in excess" of 2.5 billion euros (about $2.7 billion) so far. Back in 2014, FCA said it would invest 5 billion euros through 2018 to relaunch Alfa, though the timeframe has been pushed back to 2020. Alfa Romeo has also been losing money and will continue to do so until the full benefit of the Giulia and Stelvio hit.
      To help curb costs, Marchionne told analysts that Alfa's Giorgio platform will be shared with other FCA brands; primarily Dodge, Jeep, and Maserati. 
      "The investment in Alfa Romeo and certainly the technical investment in the architecture was something that was designed to benefit more than Alfa. I'm happy that we have finally found clarity of thought in the extension of these architectures well beyond Alfa," said Marchionne.
      Marchionne said Giorgio would underpin "the whole Maserati development beyond 2018," along with large Jeeps and the next-generation of Dodge's rear-drive models. As we have we reported previously, Giorgio will underpin the next-generation Charger and Challenger. Automotive News learned from a source that the platform will underpin the next Journey and Durango crossovers, and possibly a new midsize sedan. No information was given about Jeep, but it seems the next-generation Grand Cherokee is a safe bet.

      I have one co-worker who has been a thorn in my side for the past 6 months.... but I have to admit that when I need something done that is in his area of expertise, he goes after it like an angry rabid chihuahua and gets it done.
