Help Alfa 159 Twin Turbo diesel

Does anyone know if this engine (currently in the SAAB at 170 BHP) is (or is it) coming to the 159 range?

Yes it should eventually but there will be 180 and 190ps versions. Its the same engine, but the higher power versions are for Fiat Group only.

Its 180bhp in the Saab, it will be 190bhp in the Alfa but there are no plans for it yet. I expect it to come out when the 1.8T Petrol does as well..

.....acktshually... the Saab one was a GM development of the engine, done by Opel at Kaiserslautern, hee haw to do with Fiat, other than Kaiserslautern building the 1.9 under license from Fiat.

I dont know if the stop gap Lancia version was Fiat or GM engineered - either way the 2.0 Jtd seems to have superseded it.

The 1.9 twin turbo in the Saab is not a nice engine. Power delivery is OK, but it is VERY boomy and unpleasant sounding.

This is an old thread! I would say now there is no chance at all of the 1.9 Twin Turbo coming to Alfa.

The current diesel 2.0 JTDm already gives 170 bhp and as Shakey reports there is a 220 twin turbo Multijet 2 in development for the Milano and presumably the 159/Brera platform - possibly reserved for Ti. This engine may however spell the end for the 2.4
