Porsche’s crossover turned out to be its best seller, and the forthcoming Maserati Levante is expected to outsell the Ghibli and Quattroporte. The Levante is reportedly built on the modified-LX platform used by the two sedans, while the Stelvio uses the new “Giorgio” platform and architecture — also expected to be the basis of a new Dodge Journey in roughly two years.

According to Larry Vellequette of Automotive News, the Journey will be made in Italy. This indicates that the two cars will share an assembly line as well as many components and design elements, though they are likely to look quite different and may not share engines. Both will probably to use ZF eight-speed automatic transmissions, the Alfa using ZF’s own second-generation model, and the Journey possibly using a Chrysler unit with the same core design.
