The 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia, particularly the Giulia Quadrifoglio variant, has captivated automotive enthusiasts and journalists alike. “The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is the epitome of a premium sports sedan, one that thoroughly impressed our field of judges,” remarked Cory Fourniquet, TAWA president. “With its stunning looks and exhilarating performance from a 505-horsepower twin-turbo V-6, the Giulia Quadrifoglio was the obvious choice for Performance Vehicle of Texas.”

The Giulia Quadrifoglio epitomizes Alfa Romeo’s motorsports heritage and performance prowess. It features a 505-horsepower, 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine. This powerhouse propels the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 191 mph, offering an exhilarating driving experience coupled with advanced technologies and Italian style. Alfa Romeo will discontinue the Quadrifoglio this spring in the North American market and recently revealed a limited farewell model with the 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Super Sport.

The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid offers a comprehensive suite of family-friendly features, including the innovative FamCAM interior camera, which provides a bird’s-eye view of rear-facing child-seat occupants.

If you all haven't spent time in Guilia you're missing a real treat. Absolutely the best handling car I have driven. If the new Charger can replicate that even a bit with new SIx it will be pure joy.
