Alfa Romeo’s Ferrari-Powered Giulia Won’t Be Here Any Time Soon

Industry News

The super sedan is getting pushed back.

When we first heard about Alfa Romeo’s Giulia that would bepowered by a Ferrari-derived V6, we were ecstatic. With a pair of turbos, theGiulia QV’s engine makes 503 hp and beat the BMW M4 around the Nurburgring. TheGiulia was expected to go on sale in Europe in early 2016, with a US debutshortly after. According to Automotive News, Alfa Romeo will delay the Giulia’slaunch by six months. That means the Giluia won’t make an appearance in the US untilthe end of 2016 at the earliest.

The news that Alfa Romeo is delaying the launch of the Giuliais upsetting, but something we should’ve seen. Aside from the Alfa Romeo 4C, theautomaker hasn't had a strong presence in North America for a long time. Inaddition to the new Giulia, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne also had plansto put a Giulia-derived SUV into production by mid-2016. But we hear that theSUV won’t go on sale until early 2017, which is nine months behind schedule. Unnamedsources told Automotive News that the Giulia is being delayed because of safetyand ride characteristics. Hopefully Alfa Romeo isn’t screwing up the supersedan.
