Alfa Romeo Launches 2017 Stelvio With A Diesel Engine
Following its successful debut late last year at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, Alfa Romeo has launched its 2017 Stelvio SUV. Apparently, people have another reason to rejoice in addition to the fact that the long-awaited SUV from Alfa Romeo has finally been unveiled. It appears that the 2017 Alfa Romeo Stelvio also offers a diesel-powered engine for those that prefer diesel over petrol.
2017 Alfa Romeo Stelvio: The Powertrain
According to a report, the recently launched 2017 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is available in three trims. First is the base Stelvio followed by Super and Technica. The first trims are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with an eight-speed automatic that delivers the power through an all-wheel-drive (AWD) configuration that allows the 2017 Alfa Romeo Stelvio to accelerate from zero to 62 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds
The Technica trim draws power from a 2.2-liter diesel engine. Accordingly, this engine has two power outputs. The first one will deliver 210 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque while the other only cranks out 180 horsepower. The engine with 180 horsepower output, however, has yet to arrive.
2017 Alfa Romeo Stelvio: More Will Get The Diesel
According to a report, there is a bigger portion of the market that would prefer to get a diesel-powered variant of the 2017 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Unfortunately, the diesel-powered 2017 Alfa Romeo is launched in the United Kingdom. The U.S. market has been promised different trims and engines, which include the very powerful Quadrifoglio trim that cranks out 505 horsepower.
The Fate Of Stelvio In The US Market
While the diesel-powered Alfa Romeo Stelvio may not make it to the North American shores, the U.S. market is still expected to give Alfa Romeo's first SUV a warm welcome. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is expected to arrive in the U.S. market next fall with an estimated price of $50,000 to $70,000.
