Offered in rear- or all-wheel-drive form, the Giulia's base engine is a 280-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that works with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. The high-performance Quadrifoglio trim level is rear-drive-only, and it packs a 505-hp, twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6.
