If you thought Alfa Romeo was going to stop with just doing the Giulia sedan, think again. Motoring has learned that Alfa Romeo is planning to show a Giulia coupe at the Geneva Motor Show next month. 

The report says the coupe will revive the Sprint name and take on the likes of the Audi A5, BMW 4-Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe. The engine lineup will be the same as the sedan, which includes a turbocharged 2.0L four and the turbocharged 2.9L V6 found in the Quadrifoglio. Down the road,  Alfa will be adding a convertible and wagon to the Giulia lineup.

No mention of when the Giulia Spring could go on sale.

Yup, better quality than Fiat but not great, but they have generated Billions that Sergio took to bring back from death Alfa and make him look like superman in Italy since it created jobs there, but in essence, it was a short vision thinking as it is killing the goose that laid the golden egg and now the American Brands are just about dead. Since Alfa generates ZERO Profits and is a black hole sucking down money, how will it survive once people stop buying Chrysler and Dodge products cause they are so old in comparison to the rest of the auto world.

SERGIO = IDIOT, NO VISION, STUPID, Should have been fired long ago if it was not for his manipulation of numbers to keep the board employed also. They are only looking for a way to get to retirement and not about long life of the company or jobs.

IMHO

For all their flaws, they are certainly better now than anything from Alfa, not mention the jobs kept here by producing Chrysler and Dodge products.

And your little graph is from? Most of that is reflective of FCAs neglect more than a direct issue with Dodge or Chrysler. Regardless, Dodge and Chrysler never got ran out of the country for being piles of $h!. Alfa and Fiat were run out in the 80s for that very reason.

@surreal1272 you must be joking, Chrysler had horrible quality way before Fiat bought them.

I have nothing personal against Chrysler but blaming all of their problems on Fiat is just wrong.

Not saying they didn't have problems and I mentioned that the first time but to sit here and act like Fiat hasn't contributed to it is also a joke. Fiat is $h!.

True they did, but that is not what was stated.

Agree, Fiat and Alfa were more terrible than any other auto company and left as no one was willing to buy their crap. They came back in thinking people would have forgotten about the 60's and 70's and we have not. Crap then, Crap now and when Fiat could have built up Chrysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep, instead they have stolen the billions to try and bring back Alfa "FAILED" and to prop up Fiat.

If Sergio had half a brain, he would have dumped the low end of Chrysler and built it to be a true luxury competitor, continued to improve and grow Dodge, Jeep and Ram and with solid products from those 4, then replace and improve Fiat and the rest. Instead he choose to take the billions, lie and bring back a pathetic Alfa that does not sell and keep Fiat building the same crap that people buy and dump on the market before they have 10,000 miles on them.

      If there is one thing that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is consistent on, it is their ability to change their future plans on a whim and cause us to scratch our heads. Case in point, Automotive News has learned that FCA has ditched plans on moving the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger/Challenger to the Giorgio platform - what underpins the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Instead, all of the models will get will one more refresh in 2019 that will cut weight and boost fuel economy. There is also talk about the 300 getting the option of the Hellcat V8 because FCA thinks we don't have enough vehicles with it?!
      In 2021, the Charger and Challenger will be (finally) redesigned. They'll be based on the platform the underpins the Maserati Ghibli. There is no mention about the 300 moving to this platform, possibly hinting that the 300 will be shown the door - something we reported on back in November.
      Will there be any Chrysler or Dodge model that will use the Giorgio platform? Yes and that will be the next-generation Journey that is possibly arriving in 2019.

      The next-generation Jeep Wrangler will see the return of a pickup body style. According to a new report, the truck will be wearing an iconic name, Scrambler.
      Jeep Scrambler Forum (sister site to JL Wrangler Forums) has learned from sources that Jeep has picked the name last seen on the CJ-8 from the 1980's. They also obtained some CAD files showing an alleged frame and axles for the Scrambler. The drawing shows the Scrambler and Wrangler Unlimted frames. Compared to the Unlimted, the Scrambler looks quite different with a different arrangement of bars and bracing towards the back. It is also longer, about 33 inches according to the forum.
      As for engines, the Scrambler will have the 3.0L turbodiesel V6 with start-stop according to a dealer system computer. The turbo 2.0L and 3.6L V6 aren't listed, but this is most likely due to FCA building out their system.
      One interesting tidbit is the Scrambler will have a removable top. The dealer system reveals there will be two hardtop and a softtop.
