Italian automaker Alfa Romeo has announced plans to introduce an SUV by the end of 2015, confirming rumors that have been around for a while now.
The information was revealed by Damien Dally, head of Alfa Romeo UK, at the Telegraph Festival of Motoring. “There will certainly be an SUV in the next two or three years,” Dally said, adding that Fiat Group’s ownership of Jeep has given Alfa Romeo access to a “whole portofolio of technologies”.

While no other details have been released, it’s more than clear that the future Alfa Romeo SUV will be based on the lemon-sucking Jeep Cherokee we’ve been laughing at. Only because of its looks and because we’re plain rude from now and then.

As we already told you on several occasions, the new Jeep Cherokee shares its platform with the Dodge Dart and the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. So it’s more than natural to assume that the 2016 SUV could sports the same technology as them company’s compact sedan.

Most likely, the vehicle will be offered in both front and four-wheel-drive versions, but it will take a little while longer before the first official informations surface. We’ll keep you updated.
