While everyone and thier mum was jumping up and down as Alfa introduced the Giulia QV to the American market, more significant news slipped by quietly.

The Giulia will offer shoppers class-leading performance from a 4 cylinder turbo. With a MultiAir2 2.0L Turbo, Alfa says they “will deliver a class-leading 276 horsepower and world-class levels of performance, efficiency, and refinement.” Ok deal.

For the sake of context BMW’s four-cylinder makes 240, Benz’s 241, Audi’s 252, and Cadillac’s 272.

But that's about all Alfa had to offer on the non-QV Giulias. They would much rather we focus on the fact that this is the most powerful Alfa Romeo ever built, ever.

Besides the Ferrari-fiddled-with 2.9L V6 Alfa also made a point to brag about some of the more mundane features of the QV.

Your 500+ pony family sedan will come standard with forward-collision warning, autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alerts and parking sensors.

Alfa announced that the 2017 Quadrifoglio begins production for North America in the second half of 2016 and will start around $70,000.

they said late second quarter, and they always forecast early. These guys wont go into full serialized production until the 2017 MY changeover happens in late July.

That`s a good price in comparison to the BMW 3 series and Mercedes CLA and C Class. 3 and CLA start at about the same, C-Class is closer to the Giulia.

I wonder why they don't have an exact price yet. Why announce an approximate price? They must know what they want to sell it at.

yea, around $70,000 FFS... they cant give you a final price because final price is like $72,315 after all things are factored in. They gave you a ballpark because they're not ready to sell it. They know about where they will start, but not all the nuances that will dictate final price...

It's not the hurricane, FCA develops a new engine family, to substitute WGE derived Chrysler engines, and family b ("Pratola Serra") Fiat Powertrain and Alfa Romeo engines, this engine family is called GME, Global Medium Engine.
The Alfa L4 is the first of this family, will share about the 70% of the components with other applications of the GME family, but about 30% of the components are Alfa specific, the engine block will be common, but the head will be Alfa specific and modular to the new Alfa 2.9lt V6, which is modular to the Ferrari F154 V8 engine family and to be more precise the F154 BB version used by Ferrari California T.
The new Alfa L4 is the first engine to combine electro-hydraulic variable valve actuation(MultiAir 2) with Direct Injection.
It's probable that Chrysler in future use the name hurricane for the generic version of the turbocharged GME, but this hurricane has nothing to do with the original WGE derived hurricane, this one is all new and part of the new FCA's GME family.
