Alfa Romeo is a brand that prides itself on craftsmanship, luxury, and performance. We at Alfa Romeo of Winter Haven consider it our privilege to provide this standard to our customers. And when we found out that one of the biggest vehicle markets in the country decided to honor Alfa Romeo for its crossover utility vehicle, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, with a very prestigious award, we were ecstatic.

The Texas Truck Rodeo is a two-week event hosted by the Texas Auto Writers Association. Nearly 70 journalists test 60 vehicles and vote across several different categories, putting them through their paces. And while a fellow FCA US LLC vehicle, the 2019 RAM 1500, won the overall Truck of the Texas award, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio won both the Luxury CUV and the overall CUV of Texas awards.

“It was also noteworthy that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles swept the overall awards at this year’s competition,” said TAWA president Michael Marrs.

While TAWA didn’t really give us specifics on what was tested, we have a few ideas of our own. With eight inches of ground clearance and an immense 505-horsepower engine, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is an off-road performer from the ground up, but it still retains a high level of luxury from the outside in. The standard Harman/Kardon sound system and 8.8-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ capability ensure that every ride is a pleasant experience for all riders.
