Physically, the engine was the same aluminum 2.0L DOHC MFI I4 as previously used in the GT Veloce. The bad news is that this engine was less powerful than the one it replaced. The horsepower was down to 110 and torque was also down to 110. A rear mounted 5-speed manual did the gear changes. Rear axle ratio was 4.10:1. Top speed was 111mph.

The Alfetta GT lasted through the 1977 model year. It was replaced with the Sprint Veloce for the next.
