Alfa Romeo Models Boast Enviable Transmissions

Whether you have your eye on the all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV or a sweet new Alfa Romeo Giulia near Lakeland, FL, you know you’re getting some of the auto world’s finest performance. Much of this is down to the Alfa Romeo brand’s usage of fantastic transmissions that are specially designed to enhance the quality and engagement you feel every time you get behind the wheel.

Take the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio: it uses an eight-speed automatic transmission that does an exceptional job of delivering power, performance, and fuel-efficiency, thanks to its integrated adaptive shift technology. But this transmission doesn’t stop there. No, when you test drive this luxury SUV at our Alfa Romeo dealership in Winter Haven, FL you’ll enjoy unparalleled responsiveness and refinement thanks to a shift-by-wire setup that makes this SUV’s gear shifts fast and seamless. And even though this engine is an automatic, you can still option-in steering wheel-mounted aluminum paddle shifters and cycle through the gears yourself, without worrying about a clutch pedal.

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan uses a very similar eight-speed automatic transmission, as does the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. However, the latter comes with a twist: four different drive modes, selectable with the simple turn of a knob. These drive modes, which include “Race”, “Dynamic”, “Natural”, and “Advanced Efficiency”, work seamlessly with the eight-speed automatic gearbox and the engine, delivering markedly different but equally engaging driving experiences.

Choosing an Alfa Romeo 4C Spider near Auburndale, FL puts you in command of the Alfa TCT (twin-clutch transmission) six-speed automatic transmission, designed for maximum performance. This gearbox merges a manual transmission’s powerful bursts with a high-tech, computer-controlled automatic transmission. The result: shifts as fast as 130 milliseconds and a blistering 4.1-second 0 – 60 time!

Come see how these impressive transmissions work in person by test driving an Alfa Romeo model at Alfa Romeo of Winter Haven today.
