New Alfa

So the first vehicle reviewed in the following video is a new Alfa. It looks similar to the Cherokee and actually has the same underpinnings of the Cherokee. But 500+hp is insane.

Don't you just love when they unveil a car and it's been all nicely waxed and polished so fine you can see your teeth shining in the gleam. Just for that excitement of the big reveal, I'd try to line myself up for all the car shows coming into town! That and my clients pretty much expect me to be on top of the next cars coming out too! Haha!

I watched a MT YT video, where they compared the M3, Mercedes C Class AMG, Cadillac ATS-V against the Alfa Giulia, and the Alfa won. The V6 is actually the V8 from the Ferrari California, with 2 cylinders lopped off! So, it is a 90 degree V6, but it has no balance shafts. They locked Ferrari and Maserati Engineers in an office and did not let them out until the Giulia was born. It is the next platfom up from the Cherokee. Maybe the next 300, Charger, and Challenger will use this new platform. Awesome.

Well, it sort of has the front of a Cherokee, so maybe it will be rebadged as the new, longly awaited Jeep pickup!

Ok, so... A Ridgeline got intimate with a Sorento, and a Cherokee happened to drive by......

Jeep pickup you say ? You should go hide now, because hinting at anything less than 95% Wrangler DNA in that long awaited Jeep pickup willl get you in deep trouble
