Where Ti comes from Turismo Internazionale and Veloce means speed

LISTEN 02:24

A Giulia Veloce Ti has been around for some time and now there’s a Stelvio Ti coming to dealers. Dubbed Alfa Romeo Stelvio Veloce Ti, this model sits on 21-inch wheels and borrows visual bits and bobs from the Quadrifoglio, while offering E6d-compliant engines. Here’s what you should know about the 2021 Stelvio Veloce Ti.

We love the Stelvio as it is for its sharp handling and Italian looks so a Veloce and Ti-badged version of it is bound to pique our interest.

Basically, the Veloce Ti slots between the Europe-sold Stelvio Veloce and the fire-breathing Stelvio Quadrifoglio, while borrowing design cues from the latter both inside and out.

Besides the 21-inch wheels, the Stelvio Veloce Ti gets a new rear bumper and diffuser on the outside while inside the cabin, notable additions include aluminum shift paddles, leather and Alcantara sport seats, and real carbon fiber accents, says Alfa Romeo.

Unluckily, the visual side of things is the only aspect that gets borrowed from the Quadrifoglio. This means that the 505-horsepower V-6 won’t make it under the Veloce Ti’s hood. Instead, the nippy SUV will receive Alfa Romeo’s four-cylinder, 280-horsepower turbo engine mated to an eight-speed automatic and the company’s Q4 all-wheel-drive setup.

There’s no word on pricing or on whether the Stelvio Veloce Ti is going to make it to the US of A. Speaking of which, the Ti badge is not an unknown for the Stelvio sold in the U.S., as the SUV is offered in no less than four trims levels that include the Ti nameplate: Stelvio Ti ($45,800), Stelvio Ti Lusso ($48,300), Stelvio Ti Sport ($48,300), and Stelvio Ti Sport Carbon ($53,200).

Since this new model wears the Veloce badge, too, we can only imagine that it would slot in above the Ti Sport Carbon and under the Quadrifoglio ($80,500) in the range hierarchy.

If Alfa Romeo does decide to bring it to the States, expect a price tag of around $60,000, perhaps even more. Then again, we can’t tell when or if that’s going to happen.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read More
