Incorporating the Group’s very best engine design technology, the Stelvio propulsion units belong to a new generation of all-aluminium four-cylinder engines that are built in Italy at the Termoli (petrol) and Pratola Serra (Diesel) plants, in areas assigned only to Alfa Romeo engines.
The two new engines extend the Stelvio range, which already includes the 280 HP 2.0 Turbocharged petrol and 210 HP 2.2 Diesel units, both with automatic 8-speed transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive.
Last but not least, to coincide with the launch of the two new engines, two additional contents are added to the Stelvio range: the more posh chocolate interior colour and the sporty interior which includes aluminium inserts, black lining, leather steering wheel and heated leather sports seats with 6-way front power bolster and driver memory. Just some more info on the engines:
180 HP 2.2 Diesel
The 180 HP 2.2 Diesel (maximum torque 450 Nm at 1,750 rpm) is the first all-aluminium Diesel amongst the new-generation engines from Alfa Romeo. With four cylinders in-line, it features the latest-generation MultiJet II injection system with Injection Rate Shaping (IRS) and operating pressures of 2,000 bar. The electrically-operated variable geometry turbocharger offers state-of-the-art mechanics and minimises response times and at the same time guarantees benefits in terms of efficiency. The most sophisticated driving satisfaction and comfort levels are also guaranteed by the use of a balancing countershaft. And, an innovation for this market, the 180 HP 2.2 Diesel is equipped with a turbocharger speed sensor. The performances are outstanding: with automatic 8-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive, Stelvio 180 HP 2.2 Diesel reaches a top speed of 210 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds.
200 HP 2.0 Turbo Petrol
The 200 HP 2.0 Turbocharged petrol engine is a 4-cylinder unit built entirely in aluminium with carbon drive shaft, combined with the automatic 8-speed transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive. In addition to MultiAir electro-hydraulic valve actuation, the distinctive features of this engine include “2-in-1” turbo and 200-bar high-pressure direct injection, which pair up to deliver a particularly snappy accelerator response across the rev range in addition to first-class fuel-efficiency.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio 200 HP 2.0 Turbocharged petrol (maximum torque of 330Nm at 1,750 rpm) has a top speed of 215 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds.
Needless to say, we will enjoy driving the Stelvio soon…
