November 18, 2016 – Alfa Romeo has taken the wraps off its first ever SUV, the Stelvio, at the LA Auto Show this week.
Revealed in its sportiest and most powerful ‘Quadrifoglio’ form, the Stelvio carries Alfa Romeo’s latest design DNA that we’ve already seen on the Giulia Quadrifoglio sedan, on which the Stelvio is based.
Powering the Stelvio QV is a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 510-horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Other engines in the Stelvio range will include a 280-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 400 Nm of torque.
In terms of performance, the Stelvio QV sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4 seconds and maxes out at a top speed of 285 km/h.
