    Common build points for sure, GG.

    Hope someone has the resume up to date

    Huh? Is that photo meant to show the Alfa SUV on pre-production line already? In total silence, without any mule sighting or preview?

    T_690, are you sure that table is genuine and not for a new Maserati?

    It's should be shared between all future E and F segment Alfa and Maserati models. But here is specifically for Alfa 964 which is closely related to Jeep WL.

    Usually when I see TTT say something along the lines of this like he has in the past, that pretty much confirms it.

    Mules don't have to look like their final vehicles... especially if they share dimensions with another brand's model. Also, FCA has a lot of private roads it can use that are out of sight. Mules on the public road tend to be part of the pre-launch marketing campaign these days.

    As widely discussed here, this model is a late 2020 (calendar) launch.. unlikely to be Geneva (March), as that's when orders should open for Tonale, but maybe as a "concept" with intro later in the year.

    So, this arrives before the new Grand Cherokee?

    I could imagine the E-SUV getting an American world premiere instead of Europe. Europe won't be a big market for it.

    So you all think the photo really shows the upcoming Alfa and not some (photoshopped) SUV by another brand?

    Different powertrains, instrument cluster, infotainment screen... Suspension of we compare it with non SRT Jeeps.

    ADAS Level 3 and dimensions will be shared. And AFAIK production facility is the same.

    Alfas are low volume to begin with. Many early show concepts use the production metal as a start. If that is a supplier, shame on them (contract could be in jeopardy), if that is a employee better get on Indeed quick.

    Note not on a production carrier. Looks like a early build out of the metal components. Seen these frequently at suppliers to make sure there parts fit. But major breech of protocol to allow them to be photographed.

    So is this an Alpha frame or a Jeep frame?

    Giorgio Global which will accordingly to a platform strategy spread over 4 different brands. But we will see different suspension types, engines, track width, wheelbase length, infotainment systems, instrument clusters...

    For example WL has very similar rear suspension as WK2. That's something which can't be expected from Alfa.

    So...

    That’s not an Alfa.

    (Thanks @T_690 for figuring it out)

    It’s the red Vietnamese SUV in the picture I just posted...

    VinFast Lux SA2.0

    If you do a reverse image search on the supposed Alfa image, it also pulls up VinFast articles and references that picture as being the first body shell manufactured for that vehicle.
