US Stelvio on the way

Americans will see the first “G-based” crossover this summer, as Alfa Romeo will start making Stelvios for the United States and Canada in March, according to Sergio Marchionne.

Stelvio

The first car on the “Giorgio” (“G”) platform and architecture, developed by the full corporation but attributed to Alfa Romeo for marketing purposes, was the Giulia. The rear-drive sedan swept up critical praise and a tough track record, and was quickly followed by the Stelvio. The same platform/architecture is to produce a large Alfa Romeo, and then a slew of Dodges and, probably, a new Grand Cherokee.

The versatility of the G setup is partly due to the fact that it was not created just for Alfa Romeo. Sergio Marchionne had repeatedly said that it would be a joint effort of the former Chrysler and the former Fiat, or FCA US and FCA Italy; and that it would not be feasible without both Dodge and Alfa Romeo.

A new Dodge Journey based on the Stelvio is reportedly due for next year, built in Italy alongside the high-end crossover. Replacing the Journey in the “mainstream people mover” class will be a new Chrysler crossover based on the Jeep Cherokee, but longer and without off-road chops.
