While Alfa Romeo has already revealed details of the impressive 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio, details of the more pedestrian Italian sedan have been unknown until now. FCA has released details of the Giulia ahead of next week’s New York International Auto Show, including specifications of the base Giulia and mid-range Giulia Ti.
Both mainstream Giulia trim levels will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder 276 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The engine’s peak torque is available from 2,250-4,500 rpm. While that may not sound overly impressive, Alfa claims that the 2.0-liter and standard eight-speed automatic transmission will propel the Giulia from zero to 60 in an impressive 5.5 seconds. The new transmission was co-developed with ZF.
The rear-wheel-drive Giulia will have Alfa’s optional Q4 all-wheel-drive system. Q4 will allow the Giulia to transfer up to 60-percent of its torque to the front axle if needed, while the system has a reaction time of around 150 milliseconds. Alfa Q4 will be optional on both Giulia and Giulia Ti.
Expect further details and first impressions of the Alfa Romeo Giulia next week from the New York Auto Show.
