Alfa Says Giulia Platform Is A "Jewel", Likely To Be Used By Other FCA Cars

Alfa Romeo is so pleased with the Giorgio platform underpinning the Giulia and Stelvio that it expects it to be used across the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles range.

When developed, the platform was made exclusively by and for Alfa Romeo but while speaking with AutoNews at the Los Angeles Auto Show, FCA executive Reid Bigland said that the platform is too good not to be shared.

“Modifying that platform to spawn additional FCA products is a possibility. We've got a jewel here. In terms of driving dynamics, it's best in class, so it's going to be difficult to keep that exclusive for Alfa Romeo,” he asserted.

Bigland said that the platform can be modified to suit vehicles cheaper and more expensive than the Giulia and Stelvio, potentially including models from Dodge and Maserati.

After all, the company did spent 1 billion euros ($1.07 billion) to develop the Giorgio platform, which is reportedly going to be used in eight models, ranging from a compact hatchback to a full-sized sedan.
