    Rumorpile: Details On Alfa Romeo SUV

      Some clues and details begin to come out on Alfa's Crossover

    During Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' latest five-year plan, Alfa Romeo revealed that between 2016-2018 that it plans to introduce two new SUV/Crossover models. Autocar got some details on one of those crossovers.

    The yet-unnamed model will compete with the likes of the BMW X3 and Lexus RX. Alfa Romeo will utilize a a shortened version of the platform that currently underpins the Maserati Ghibli. Powertrains will range from turbocharged four-cylinder gas and diesel engines, to a twin-turbo V6 that is being worked on by Ferrari. An eight-speed automatic that Maserati is using on the Ghibli will be coming to this new crossover.

    Autocar says this crossover could go on sale in late 2016, possibly meaning we could get our first look at this crossover sometime next year.

    I'm still rather confused as to Alfa's position in the FCA lineup.  Are they planning on it being a BMW competitor? If so, they are rather boxed in with Maserati at the $65k price point.

    They want FCA's plan for Alfa. I think we'll get a better idea when the Guila, the long and coming compact sedan is finally introduced.

    Seems to have a mess of confusion and way to much overlap. I doubt this will be a winner winner chicken dinner for them. More of a road kill and nobody touching the mess.
