Wow. If it keeps going like this it looks more and more likely I won't be upgrading to a '23. I'll keep my '20 with carbon package, two-done red/black interior, and bright 5-holes.............

If I had one to keep I'd tend to agree with you. Browsing whats left of the 2021's as well as the used market.

It's been like that since 2016. Not really possible to use green and white with the steering wheel stitch pattern, only works in one colour. I favoured red stitching on my seats just so my steering wheel matches.
That's a good point about not being able to stitch two tone on the wheel. Also why I liked the red better

Are these changes global, or just the US market?

So if you order a Verde Montreal QV, you either stick with the stock calipers which are??? Or you can get red, which will look god-awful? Really don't get the thinking. The red calipers look great on the blacks, whites, and grays, sometimes the blue, but as mentioned previously the Christmas car unsightly. Hopefully they'll rethink the caliper decision.

As a rule, the spec list for a market is set by the local distributor. In this case, the distributor is the US corporate operations. My question is about who made these decisions: was it Brodendorfer [sic?] for FCA? Or Dominique for Stellantis? If the latter, I think it’s a really bad omen.

Question for you guys - I went into a dealer yesterday to spec out a Giulia.
I'm torn between the Veloce Ti and regular Ti.
(And a Ti Sport they had on the lot, but not getting into that right now).

The salesman said the Veloce comes standard with the Nero-package-look. Not quite to my liking, so I said, okay lets build a Ti.

We're building the Ti and for this trim level, you can get Anodized Blue Metallic (but not on Veloce).
HOWEVER - something new (to me at least) were the seats. Everyone knows what the black interior looks like (red not an option on 2022 Ti - only on Veloce). The new option we saw is the color option "Saddle Brown" for $600 more.
Does any one know what that would look like? Sales guy guessed it could be darker than tan, but not as dark as chocolate - not very helpful. I can't find pictures 🤷‍♂️
Anyone have insight to this?

On another note, I'm conflicted between the two trims because the exterior color options on both are not the same, the Sport/Veloce seats vs the standard, and would prefer the black headliner (Veloce) because it seems to block out more of the sun-in-your-face than the grey does (Ti) - if you have a different opinion/experience I'd like to discuss!
I'm puzzled what this means on the print out:

*D7 Leather Seats
-XH Black
CEC Saddle Brown Seats

Can anyone decipher this?
Is '-XH' the headliner coming black with this $600 seat option?

[Side note: I know there were lots of questions on this forum about the upgraded lights, sales guys said the 35 High Performance Bi-Xenon Headlamps are now standard - which I'm excited about, lol]

The Lusso is a joke and has been from day 1.
Excuse me! My 2020 Lusso as well as my 2018 Lusso are not jokes. Some people, dare I say "the cognoscenti" consider Lussos to be the finest, most attractive and driveable of all Giulias. But we certainly would not denigrate the tastes others have or choices others make.

Agree, beautiful car, and elegantly equipped for people that are not into the more aggressive sport look. Better suited if you’re pulling up to the front of the casino in Monte Carlo rather than driving the course.

AFAIK, Giulia has, since the beginning, only one shade of brown (not to be confused with crema). Just do a Web image search for brown or tan interiors and you’ll find plenty of examples. Note that Stelvio brown I saw is a lot darker than Giulia brown, so don’t use Stelvio as a reference if your search pulls up any of those pics.

I stand by my statement. When considered as a complete package, it hardly qualifies as a luxury trim when compared to any of the competition. If you like what it offers, great. That doesn't make it any less true. The tech is terrible and is missing features that are offered in far cheaper cars. I don't know what luxury means to you, but the Lusso fails at every metric I have.

Based on the 2021 / 2020 configurator, that brown is called 'tan'.
The dealer said this was a new color called, 'Saddle Brown'.
Is it the same thing just a new name?
I can’t be 100% sure but the color never was actually “tan,” it has too much dark orange in it. Saddle sounds more accurate. Also, from what we know so far, there are basically no functional changes to the car, only repackaging of existing stuff (limited-edition paint and rumors of live-traffic nav notwithstanding). Look: it could be a whole new interior color, but that just doesn’t fit with what we know of MY22.

So what do you think is a complete package? The Lusso trim is the interior option of more luxurious seats and leather and wood on the dash and doors and wheels that are different to the TI and TI sport. The tech is the same on all models and the car is the same also. The only thing that I would have liked is a nicer leather on the steering wheel. The Lusso package is one of the reasons I purchased a Guilia because the Genesis G70 was next on my list but I did not like the interior especially the black color. Don't forget MB and BMW's with luxury interiors cost another 30 to 40 thousand dollars. I would not buy a Guilia luxury model if it costs 20 or 30 thousand more.
