The 2023 Alfa Romeo Castello is likely to run with several engine options, namely 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, and twin-turbo 2.9 liter V6 for the Quadrifoglio version, as well as a choice of hybrid versions to power the engine.

The biggest market for 2023 Alfa Romeo Castello is the United States and China, although it is also marketed in other countries. Based on the success of Stelvio before, chances are Castello will be immediately favored by crossover fans in the North American region.
The Origin Of The Name
More likely, the name Castello is taken from Italian which means ‘castle’. There is a castle in the city of Milan, Italy, called the Castello Sforzesco. Milan itself is the home where the Alfa Romeo company originated. Probably the name takes inspiration from that.
In addition, there is also a road crossing the alpine mountain called Passo Castello, and it is also possible that the name Castello comes from that, considering that Stelvio is also the name of a mountain road.

Despite its large size, the weight of this car is fairly light thanks to aluminum and carbon fiber that come in handy as a lightweight materials.
