2019 Alfa Romeo Castello SUV Redesign, Spy Shots, Release Date, & Price – Alfa Romeo reportedly has a second, larger SUV under concern, and a new rendering from Motor1.com’s Italian team imagines how the larger crossover may seem. Allegedly, the model holds the moniker Castello, which is Italian for “fortress.” Based to our Italian fellow workers, this title would work simply because there’s a renowned alpine successfully pass known as Passo di Castello, which satisfies with the Stelvio that’s also called right after a mountain road. In inclusion, there’s the Castello Sforzesco castle in Alfa’s home city of Milan. The headline matches effectively with FCA’s Dodge Durango Citadel, also.
The Castello reportedly trips on the exact same Giorgio platform as Alfa Romeo current Stelvio and the Giulia. It will determine about 193 inches (4.9 yards) long, as an alternative of 184.6 inches (4.688 yards) for the current Stelvio. Seating for five or seven travelers could be available, dependant upon a buyer’s requirements. The powertrain options continue to be a secret but probably include a base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, a hybrid version to electrify this engine, and the twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 for the range-topping Quadrifoglio version. A plug-in hybrid could possibly be available, also.
Alfa Romeo will mainly market the Castello in the United States and China as a way to assist the brand’s expansion ideas. It’ll be way too big to match up European choices, however. Our peers from Motor1.com Italy are anticipating the new Alfa Romeo main SUV by the end of 2019 or early on 2020.
Presented the achievement of the Stelvio, it’s easy to picture the Castello simply being a achievement in the crossover-caring North American market. From January to September 2018, the brand has provided 9,044 Stelvios in the United States, versus 8,933 good examples of the Giulia and just 183 products of the 4C in the very same time period.
