Alfa Romeo is currently transitioning its brand into an all-electric lineup by 2027. The recent introduction of the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale, marks the first step in that direction, thanks to its mild-hybrid (mHEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) options. As for the brand’s more popular Stelvio and Giulia models, both will be offered as battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) starting with an all-new Stelvio in 2025. Until then, the current lineup of award-winning Stelvio and Giulia models will soldier on, but that isn’t without some updates to hold them over.
Over the past few weeks, a ton of new rumors have been circulating the interwebs with the Stelvio and Giulia both receiving for the 2023 model year. These updates include updated styling elements, more technology, and even a new mHEV model. These most recent details have come to light, as the 2023 pilot models have been running down the assembly line at the Stellantis Cassino plant.
But thanks to some recent leaks on the Facebook page @Alfisti, we are getting a sneak peek at what to expect for the upcoming 2023 model year Alfa Romeo Giulia.
The first image is that of a 2023 Alfa Romeo Giulia pilot model on the line at Cassino. It shows a new headlight design (looking very similar to the sketch shown at then Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) Captial Markets Day 2018 for the canceled Alfa Romeo GTV). The style looks very close to the new theme of the all-new Tonale, which features three Matrix LED headlights.
Another picture also surfaced of the 2023 Alfa Romeo Giulia’s all-new digital gauge cluster. The fully-customizable screen has been slowly been integrated into several Stellantis vehicles, across the automaker’s 14 brand lineup.
As for the mHEV powertrain, we expect that it will adopt the same propulsion system as the Ghibli and Levante Hybrid models. Equipped with the proven 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (GME-T4) engine that is found under the hood of many of our favorite Stellantis products, however, for the Maserati Hybrid models, there is a huge boost in power to a whopping 330 horsepower and 332 ft.-lb. (450 Nm) of torque at just 1,500 rpm.
With pilot models rolling off the Cassino line in January, we expect to start seeing camouflage models of the 2023 Alfas to be hitting the street soon. Production of the new 2023 models, should start sometime in Q3 of 2022.
