I am new here but am trying to see if anyone else has this happen. When cruising on the highway I A mode, if I let off the throttle, I notice the rpms drop to 1000 or slightly under. I am new to Alfa so I’m unsure if this is normal or not. Any help is appreciated. I have a 2018 stelvio sport

Seems like I've seen that mentioned somewhere on here in another thread. It is designed to that apparently. I've not triggered it myself but I only use A mode in combination with cruise control on the highway.

If by chance you are able to find that thread, would you be able to link that on here? I would love to read up on it

A mode seems to do whatever it takes to keep the revs low and the turbo from spooling up to save gas. It's supposed to work that way.

I only have 1100 miles on the odometer so far, but this seems to be doing a decent job of saving gas. On a three hour drive, one way in N, I got 28 mpg, the return trip in A, I got 31 mpg.

It is totally normal. That is coasting or sailing mode, which is activated automatically in A or D when speed is below 100km/h, no cruise control and you take off your foot from the gas pedal. Usually at downhills. Most often in A mode. Done for fuel saving.

agreed.. mine does it on the highway when cruising and I take my foot off the pedal.. it goes into neutral and leveages momentum vs fuel.
