Article by Christian A., on May 12, 2017

Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the Italian-American automaker's current bid to extract a five-figure amount out of the check books of consumers who like to cruise around in style with Giorgio-backed grace, and those who are highly interested to know how much it costs to acquire such vehicle then you are in luck. FCA North America recently revealed the price tag for both Stelvio and Stelvio Ti, and automaker competitors might just be worried now.

The Italian-American automaker is finally taking part in the crossover buzz in the United States by unveiling the Stelvio this summer. The top of the tier Quadrifoglio will sit beside the Stelvio at a later time, but the standard trim will sell for about $42,990 (plus $995 destination) when arriving at selected dealers. Its mid-range counterpart, the Stelvio Ti will bear a price tag of around $44,990. The standard Stelvio and Ti's powertrain is a 2.0 L turbocharged 4 cylinder that produces around 280hp (209 kW) and 306 lb-ft (415 Newton-meters) of torque.

The output will be delivered via an 8-speed automatic gearbox to the front and rear wheels. The automotive company claimed that the new crossover can go up to 60 miles per hour (97 km per hour) in just 5.4 seconds and can clinch a top speed of about 144 mph (232 kph). But don’t be fooled, as the low-range Stelvio have some nifty features including Alfa DNA drive mode selector, leather interior, backup camera, rear parking sensors, bi-xenon headlamps with LE daytime running light, LED tail lamps, passive entry care of Keyless Go, power liftgate, power hatch, and a Formula One inspired flat bottom steering wheel with dedicated push button start to top it all.

You can also avail the alternative Sport Package that offers a 19 inch wheels, modified sport suspension, aluminium paddle shifters, sport steering wheel, aluminium trim, gloss black window trim and matching roof rails that you can have for the price of $1,800.

If you want to upgrade to the Ti, you can obtain more luxuries specifically for the interior area. An 8.8-inch infotainment display with Sirius XM can keep you entertained for hours, and wood accents beautifully adorn the cabin. Front parking sensors are available. Heating for the front seats and steering wheel aims to warm people while enjoying the comforts of the vehicle.

Opting for the Ti trim will give you 2 option packages: the Sport and Lusso which bear an additional $2,500 price. The Sport package will offer further upgrades including 20 inch wheels, sport tuned suspension, 12 power seats and design improvements from the identical set of the base model. On the other hand, the Lusso package will grant you an upgrade of varying designs for the 19 inch wheels, improved leather and power seats.

Among the safety features that the Alfa Romeo Stelvio offers are Full speed forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. It certainly looks like the Italian-American automaker is giving the other automakers a run for their money.
