Back in August, we discussed that the Alfa Romeo brand realignment of a new simplified lineup marketing strategy for the 2022 model year. The move consisted of realigning the lineup to focus on the fastest-turning packages, and price positioning on higher trims. It also means that the Alfa Romeo lineup in North America will now mirror the rest of the markets that the Alfa Romeo brand is currently in.
Last week, we discussed everything new surrounding the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia. Today, we are focusing on the most popular vehicle in the Alfa Romeo lineup – the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

The newly added features include the following…
