With the exception of a few copies of the 8C Competizione, Alfa Romeo hasn't sold any cars in the US since 1995. With their parent company Fiat having acquired a large stake in Chrysler recently, Alfa now has the dealership network and North American manufacturing facilities it needs to bring the almost-legendary brand back to the US. Leading the charge into the US market will be the new 4C, as well as an all-new version of the Spider.
Somewhat more practical, but sure to be every bit as stylish, will be the new Giulia, the replacement for the 159. There will also be a large sedan based on the Chrysler 300 and an SUV based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee. We're less excited about these two, but so long as they aren't taking the place of anything more interesting, we can look the other way. Fiat plans to have everything in place for the 2013 model year, and we're certainly hoping that works out.
