Alfa Romeo's return to North America has been a long time coming, which has given us plenty of time to wonder: Will the now-merged Fiat-Chrysler let Fiat dealers sell Alfas, or will the shapely Italians be available in Maserati dealers? The answer we've been waiting for? Both.

Auburn Hills has just released the list of 86 initial dealers that will be authorized to sell the Alfa Romeo 4C (Autoblog senior editor Seyth Miersma is driving one today in San Francisco, incidentally), setting the groundwork for a larger Alfa Romeo lineup to follow. The list includes 82 dealers across 33 states and four more in Canada. Though the vast majority are expanding upmarket from Fiat studios, a few are branching downmarket from Maserati dealers - not a one of them, in case you were wondering, having expanded from a Ferrari showroom.

The highest concentration of dealers will be found in California, Texas and Florida, but while you might have thought Little Italy would be a prime location, there won't be a single dealer in Manhattan. Not in any of the five boroughs, in fact, so if you live in New York, you'll have to trek out to Larchmont in Westchester or Somerville, New Jersey, to place your order. Of course, that's at least the case for now, as Alfa plans to eventually expand to over 300 dealers in North America. In the meantime, you can check out the full list in the press release below to see how close you are to a new Alfa dealer.

ALFA ROMEO FRANCHISES AWARDED TO 86 DEALERS IN U.S. AND CANADA

- Alfa Romeo dealer network established in U.S. and Canada
- Initial pool of 86 dealers drawn from existing FIAT and Maserati brand dealers
- Additional Alfa Romeo franchises to be awarded later this year

June 10, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - An initial group of 86 dealers have been awarded Alfa Romeo franchises in the United States and Canada.

In the U.S., 82 Alfa Romeo dealers are located in 33 states, with California, Texas, and Florida having the largest concentration of dealerships. There are four Alfa Romeo dealers in Canada in this first group.

These 86 dealers will be the first to sell the all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C coupe and limited-edition 4C Launch Edition when the iconic Italian sports car brand returns to the North American market this year.

"This group of dealers represents the first phase in the Alfa Romeo dealer network selection process," said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development, Chrysler Group LLC. "Each Alfa Romeo dealer will have a unique staff dedicated to the brand's premium market clientele. We require each Alfa Romeo dealer to have their sales and technical staff go through an intensive curriculum to ensure the highest levels of customer care and proficiency of the Alfa Romeo 4C. We anticipate that the Alfa Romeo dealer network ultimately will exceed 300 franchises in North America."

Additional Alfa Romeo franchises will be awarded this year. Initially, each franchise will receive the highly-anticipated Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition.

      So, missing New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta, San Diego/OC, Seattle. Five of the 10 largest cities in the US. Yet including Bakersfield, Omaha, and 3 for the DC area. That is some brilliant thinking there. This would explain why they have been taking so long. They needed to find a giant map of the US and 86 darts to throw at it.

      Alfa Romeo is starting off with more dealerships in 2014 than they had when they left the USA in 1995. Seems ambitious...but just like the issue with the Fiat 500, they need new models soon.

        It wouldn't be Sergio Marchionne if it weren't overly ambitious and tad presumptuous.

      It's hard to understand the logic of putting the only Georgia dealership in Savannah. Half of Georgia's population and 90% of the money are in the Atlanta metro area. Driving 4 hours to Savannah for dealer service is impractical. It's hard enough for me right now driving 45 minutes for Fiat service. I had been looking forward to the Alfa arrival. Did no Atlanta Fiat dealers want to sell Alfas?

        Hey, the cars are from Italy. That means whoever was willing to throw the most money at Alfa Romeo got the dealerships. Fuggit aboud it.

        I live in Arkansas, rarely see a Fiat 500 but have seen a few of the hideous 500L's. The Fiat in Bentonville is almost 4 hours away from the one in Benton, Arkansas and i doubt either will be in a hurry to get one of these to sit on the showroom.

      There other product better be ready very soon to help support the dealers. I really think high level Giuliettas would be good for the brand and quantity, but at the same rate they do want to go all larger RWD cars. I really think Lancia should move its product to where Alfa is with the MiTo and the Giuilietta, especially with the Ypsilon doing well. It will be sad to see Lancia killed.

      Wow this list makes no sense. I am in Atlanta and there is not one anywhere close by. Really strange. Savannah, GA has one, which I can't see that being a huge market for that one car they will sell. Really confusing. LOL!

          As I said in the other topic talking about Chrysler-FIAT's means by which to choose Alfa franchises, it makes absolutely no sense because the market for a FIAT (and that for a Maserati as well) isn't the same for the market for the 4C.

      It's great that there will be California dealerships, but five of the eight all in the Bay Area, with the rest in the LA basin, with the exception of Bakersfield. Not a good strategy if you ask me. They should spread them more evenly throughout the state.

      So it makes on wonder, how will the dealer - who were promised the Moon when Serge The Great (in his own mind, anyway) swindled them into spending millions on Fiat franchises, along with the promise of having Alfas to sell - take this bit of news. Not well is my guess.

        Careful now....telling the truth on AB results in paid-by-post bloggers to come out in force. Fiat dealers HATE SM since he forced them to spend a ton of money on new showrooms then not delivered on product. The 500 and 500L are complete flops. Now FCA will be spending a ton of money bringing a super low volume, virtually unknown now brand to the US instead spending money where it needs to be spent; creating a competitive lineup of small cars. Where is the Fiesta, Spark, Sonic, Versa, or anything sub to compact size? The Dart is too big and too heavy and has been a another sales flop saddled with the problematic 1.4 MulitAir or the NVH nightmare 2.0 and 2.4 engines. FCA has introduced one, new V6 (small Pentastar a great engine) and 2 new V8 Hemis the past two years. Ford has a ton of new turboed 4s and an award winning and very well reviewed 3. Wonder where all of the money being made from Jeep and Ram (which print money) is going? Its going to keep Fiat afloat since it is in dire trouble in Europe and just like MB did, if Fiats situation gets any worse, more and more money will be pulled from Dodge and Chrysler and starve it of development money.

          you sir have no idea what you are talking about, and obviously are a Chrysler fanboi. Fiat is the best thing to happen to the Chrysler stable, without it they would be still making the Neon, Concorde, Sebring, Avenger, et al. I am no apologist for Fiat, they need to do better, but their products at least are dynamic and have spunk. Cant say the same for Jeeps [which are nostalgic but have nothing else to offer] or RAM.

          "FIAT dealers HATE Sergio Marchionne". REALLY? considering over 99% of FIAT dealers are also Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram dealers, your comments are laughable at best. if it wasn't for Sergio being the visionary he is, Chrysler would not even exist. Chrysler has set month to month and yearly sales records for over two years, the envy of the industry. perhaps you could name another "loser" company that has accomplished this. all of their plants in North America are running at full capacity, another sign of their "loser" status. even "the small timer's bible", Consumer Reports, ranks the Ram pickup and Chrysler 300 at the top of their respective classes. when was the last time that happened? and let's talk about FIAT. I'll bet you were one of the naysayers that "FIAT wouldn't reach their goal of 50,000 units" three years ago....when only 40% of the dealers were even open. since all of the dealers were open, they have met or exceeded that goal every year. and PLEASE do tell me all about those "problematic" 1.4L MultiAir engines. my 2012 500 has just passed the 80,000 mile mark; please let me know when it will start to be "problematic". in the almost three years I've owned this car, I've never had a single problem with it, nothing. and my experience is far from unusual. when I go to the dealer for an oil change, you could shoot a cannonball thru the service department, as the other FIATS there are only in for routine maintenance as well. sorry to report, "fix it again, Tony" is dead and buried.

          Chasosphere...you must be delusional.(' [which are nostalgic but have nothing else to offer]') Jeep and Ram are the bread and butter of FCDRJ. They pay the freight for nearly every other product in the automakers portfolio. And if you were to make that statement among the Jeep or Ram faithful, I do not think you would have much to convince them with.

          Chaos...best thing to happen? Hardly. Worst? Not even close either. I'll give them somewhere in the middle. And Chrysler quit making the Concorde and Neon years before Fiat came around so I do not understand what you mean by that. Anyway, Fiat has a long way to go. My friend bought one of the first 500's and it was complete junk. Fiat even sent him a check for all the problems he had to deal with. He finally traded it in for a 13 Focus and has not looked back.
