Saw this over at the Stelvio forum. Apologies if it's been posted here already.
A lot of Quadrifoglio owners have been requesting some kind of on/off switch for a while now to activate the exhaust, without having to be in the “Race” setup. The Race setup tunes the car to have a much stiffer ride and much harder shifting. Quadrifoglio owners have stated that they loved the sound of the car but wanted it to be active on a softer setting for everyday driving. Well, it sounds like Alfa Romeo has been listening.
Starting this month, the Alfa Romeo brand is adding a new standard feature on it’s performance Stelvio Quadrifoglio
and Giulia Quadrifoglio
lineup. The 505 horsepower 2.9-liter 24-valve twin-turbocharged and intercooled V6, already sounds amazing but up until now, the dual-mode exhaust could only be activated while the vehicle is in “Race” mode. Well, that is about to change this month.
Using Alfa Romeo’s DNA drive mode selector on the center console, the dual-mode exhaust can now be activated in the “Dynamic” mode selection as well. DNA stands for Dynamic, Natural, and Advanced Efficiency. Dynamic mode is similar to the “Sport” mode used on Dodge’s performance lineup. We are not sure yet if this is simply a software update and if current owners will be able to update their Quadrifoglio models to include the updated equipment. We reached out to Alfa Romeo
, but have not received a response back as of the writing of this article. MoparInsiders will let you know when the information becomes available.
