2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia Engine Options Start with a 150 PS 2.2 JTDM Turbo Diesel

According to a screenshot published by our friends over at Alfa Romeo Project 952, the entry-level 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia will be powered by a 150 PS 2.2 JTDM diesel motor. But then again, we find it curious that there's no sign of two high-powered engine choices in the adjacent list.

Ever since the all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia was presented to the world in glorious QV guise, we knew that the 510 PS hell-bent for leather Quadrifoglio was just the tip of the iceberg as far as the mid-sized Giulia's engine options are concerned. And so, without further ado, here are the Italian sedan's domestic engine choices, ranging from a 150 PS turbo diesel all the way to the brutal 510 PS 2.9-liter V6:

* 2.2 JTDM turbo diesel with 150 PS (110 kW), 6-speed manual, RWD
* 2.2 JTDM turbo diesel with 150 PS (110 kW), 8-speed automatic, RWD
* 2.2 JTDM turbo diesel with 180 PS (133 kW), 6-speed manual, RWD
* 2.2 JTDM turbo diesel with 180 PS (133 kW), 8-speed automatic, RWD
* 2.2 JTDM turbo diesel with 210 PS (154 kW), 8-speed automatic, AWD

* 2.0 GME T4 (Global Medium Engine family) turbo petrol, 200 PS (147 kW), 8-speed automatic, RWD
* 2.0 GME T4 (Global Medium Engine family) turbo petrol, 250 PS (184 kW), 8-speed automatic, AWD
* 2.0 GME T4 (Global Medium Engine family) turbo petrol, 280 PS (206 kW), 8-speed automatic, RWD
* 2.0 GME T4 (Global Medium Engine family) turbo petrol, 280 PS (206 kW), 8-speed automatic, AWD

* 2.9 twin-turbo V6, 500 PS actually 510 PS (375 kW), 6-speed manual, RWD
* 2.9 twin-turbo V6, 500 PS actually 510 PS (375 kW), 7-speed dual-clutch, RWD
* 2.9 twin-turbo V6, 490 PS (360 kW), 8-speed automatic, RWD

So, the Giulia QV will be offered with a 6-speed manual, a 7-speed DCT, and an 8-speed automatic. But why does the 8-speed automatic transmission option offer 490 PS instead of the 7-speed DCT's 510 PS? Nobody knows at the present moment, but it might have something to do with the limitations of the ZF 8-cog auto.

The 3.0 V6 twin-turbo diesel with 340 PS (250 kW) isn't featured, which means that it should be offered in the latter half of 2016. A 2-liter turbo-4 with 330 PS (243 kW) is also in the cards in the same time frame.
