    (Pls use Google Translate)

    The Giulia will be followed by a close-sibling sports-cuv: the Stelvio (d-suv), by end-2016 or a bit later.

    Then in 2017: a c-suv, very similar to the all-new Guilietta large rwd premium-hatchback that'll follow closely. And then, if all goes well-enough sales and margins-wise: a larger e-suv in end-2018. Only then will the old Alfa-style spider and coupe appear, if at all, to replace the exotic 4C, let alone the e-sedan, which may sit in a declining market segment globally (even in the usa and china, let alone europe). besides, at the e- and f-segments: FCA has Maserati and the 2018-2019 7-seat Range Rover competing 7-seat JEEP Grand Wagoneer.

    These Alfa sporty rwd cuv-s will all likely be twinned to Dodge as well as to at least 1 Jeep (likely: the Cherokee replacement), between now and 2019 or so, for the usa market. Just as the next-gen Jeep Grand Cherokee and/or Wagoneer will be closely related to the Maserati Levante.

    i.e., shared (rumoured to about 75odd%) components and engineering, perhaps even assembly/manufacturing plant, but different brands+branding, different price points, different dealers (mostly), different geographies/markets.

    i.e., economies of scale DESPITE lacking the sprawling (sub)model lineups of the German car companies.

    The Cassino plant, historic but utterly revamped, is making Giulias and also the Stelvio d-sports-cuv. Like Melfi, it is a WorldClassManufacturing paradigm 'gold'-rated plant, which is to say the VERY bleeding-edge in automotive manufacturing. Melfi won the famous Germany industrial-consultancy group award for the best plant in the world (automation, digitisation, ecological and energy efficiency, work process, worker ergonomics etc.) melfi makes and exports the Fiat 500X and the Jeep Renegade.

    FCA has re-confirmed the Alfa Romeo all-new models launch cadence. Soon the launch of the brand in the usa, dovetailed into existing Fiat studios and Maserati dealerships. Only then China. The Stelvio d-cuv comes next (early/mid-2017), followed closely by a bmw 5-series, mercedes e-classe sized e-sedan, then an e-cuv (likely with a Dodge version, just as the Stelvio will have, exported from Italy to the usa: even the Dodge), then a c-cuv, finally around 2019 the hatchback replacement for Giulietta hatch. There will be reworkings of the Alfa 4C coupe and Spider, too, with an all-new coupe and maybe spider replacement for them in 2020 or so (shared with both Maserati's Alfieri which should precede the Alfa versions, and probably a Dodge Viper-replacement.)

    All these models will use the very same Giulia scalable, ultra-lightweight, ultra-safe platform+architecture-family, and will see (mild, 48-volt) hybrids too, starting already with the usa giulia which will see a 2litre turbo new gme engine uprated thanks to electric-supercharging to 350hp and massive torque at less-than-1500 rpm: a class-leading powertrain by a distance, it would seem.

    From clubalfa.it, on the gigantic 30-different-public-square public, experential and participatory marketing effort in Italy on behalf of the new yet so-historic-and-storied Alfa Romeo, to-be also broadcast and reported-on by all available channels, europe- and usa-wide.

    Alfa Romeo Giulia: dinner in red in Turin on the occasion of 'The Red Table'
    by Andrea Senatore - 23/09/2016

    Last night there was a major event that has put at the center of all Alfa Romeo and involved 37 Italian squares. As we announced a few days ago, took place the so-called 'The Red Table', an event that saw as the protagonist the famous Alfa Romeo car company. The event has gathered in several Italian cities in which it is held, thousands of enthusiasts united by the same passion against the famous Italian brand of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Protagonist is yet once the inevitable Alfa Romeo Giulia , the 'D' sedan segment with which the Milanese brand tries revival in the world of motors after a period of heavy fog. In the event that the sport took place last night it was also present Alfa Romeo 4C.

    Italy has ideally united to celebrate Alfa Romeo Giulia
    Among the cities affected by the 'The Red Table' also Turin. In Turin the event that saw the protagonist participation of Alfa Romeo Giulia and Alfa 4C was held in Piazza Bodoni at the first evening of 'Mother Earth Salone del Gusto' . The event caught the attention of many fans of Alfa, but also many tourists and wine lovers. The event was re-launched by Alfa through the main social channels at its disposal.

    A unique event that will live long in the hearts of those who took part
    'The Red Table' By Alfa Romeo has set the goal of creating a single large table that ideally runs through our country with the intention of celebrating, those that can safely be described as the flagship vehicle of the brand Arese, toasting all set to return to the protagonist of Alfa Romeo on the world motoring scene. It was short, a unique experience in exclusivity, as well as stressed at this time the spokesman for Alfa Romeo. Recall that this event has affected all the most beautiful squares in Italy, which for one evening came together in celebration of a brand that has made the history of motoring in Italy and in the world.

    First images of the e-sedan from Alfa Romeo (projeto 961/'Alfetta'), disguised as a Maserati Ghibli mule.

    It will of oucrse be based on the same modular platform and architecture as well as powetrains as the Giulia, which is the lightest, stiffest and safest-in-crash-ratings of its segments.

    It is said that it will also underpin the next-gen Maserati Ghibli and/or Quattroporte (which may in the next gen be combined into one sedan, so that Maserati does not overlap with Alfa.)

    It will surely share most/a-lot with the next gen Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle performance sedan+coupe, except engines and the exotic low-weight-high-strength materials.

    i.e., this modular architecture will underpin a whole host of models that will then share their engineering and r&d costs: achieve the scale that individual brands would never manage to, compared to say the huge scale economies enjoyed by the German marques.

    The basics (70-80%) are all shared with the Giulia and the launching in the first Q of 2017 d-sports-cuv, the AlfaR Stelvio. This will enable FCA to keep costs down-enough as it launches the models across brands based-off this platform and set of powertrains. A JEEP rwd model if not 2 will also be in the mix off this 'Giorgio' platform-family.

    This also means a steady and relatively fast cadence of all-new models: from the already launched Alfa Giulia to the Stelvio to the 2020/2021 Dodges, via at least 1 JEEP (Jeep Cherokee in 2018) in between, and likely 2 Maserati-s as well (all-new Grand Turismo and GranCabrio.) Since so much of the engineering is already-done/ready and supply chains+plants are already primed.
