Genesis 2023 Lineup: Models And Changes Overview

Three EVs now on offer.

An all-new generation of the Genesis G90 has arrived.

The Electrified G80 and Electrified GV70 joins the GV60 in the brand’s EV portfolio.

Small changes for G70, G80 and GV70, while GV80 goes AWD only in the U.S.

Crossovers have now become an important part of Genesis’ lineup, and electric powertrains as well. The Korean luxury brand now offers two EVs across three utility vehicle nameplates, and one EV among its three-sedan portfolio.

And as usual, Genesis wowed the public over the last year with another round of stunning show cars, including the X Concept, the X Speedium Coupe Concept and the X Convertible Concept. Here’s what to expect from the Genesis brand in 2023, with models listed in alphabetical order.

Genesis G70

2022 Genesis G70 Redesign

The 2023 Genesis G70 compact sport sedan is available with a 252-horsepower, turbo 2.0L four and a 365-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.3L V6. Changes this year include standard 19-inch wheels and new paint colours, while the U.S.-market 2.0T Prestige becomes the 2.0T Sport Prestige while adding features such as ventilated seats, dark chrome exterior trim and alloy pedals. The 3.3T trims now feature a power-operated trunklid.

Genesis G80 Electric

The second-generation Genesis G80 went on sale in 2021. As with all the aforementioned models, the new G80 serves up a turbo 2.5L four and a twin-turbo 3.5L V6, along with RWD or AWD for the U.S., and standard AWD for Canada. New for 2023 is revised infotainment system controller that should be easier to use, while the U.S.-market 2.5T Sport Prestige trim receives a 12.3-inch digital driver instrument cluster, 19-inch wheels, alloy pedals and improved front brakes. The U.S. gets 2.5T RWD, 2.5T AWD and 3.5T AWD trims, while Canada gets 2.5T Advanced, 3.5T Sport and 3.5T Sport Plus, all boasting AWD. Meanwhile, the Electrified G80 has also arrived in one fully loaded trim level, with a two-motor setup producing 365 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, along with a 87.2 kWh battery pack providing a driving range of 282 miles or 454 km.

An all-new generation of the Genesis G90 hits the market for 2023, with a redesigned exterior, a new cabin and loads of new tech. Under the hood, we find a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 that develops 375 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque, while the same powertrain with an electric assist, or what Genesis calls an e-Supercharger, generates 409 horsepower and 405 pound-feet. Both engines are connected to an all-wheel drivetrain. The new G90 is filled with standard or available high-end features, such as soft-close doors, an air suspension, rear-wheel steering, Nappa leather upholstery, power-adjustable front and rear seats with a massaging function, a 12.3-inch driver instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, head-up display, a digital key and a Bang & Olufsen surround sound system.

The Genesis GV60 is a fully electric, subcompact crossover, and the brand’s first EV. It’s touted as Genesis’ most performance-focused model so far, and uses Hyundai Motor’s E-GMP dedicated electric architecture, shared with the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 as well as the Kia EV6, and AWD is standard. Two powertrain outputs are available in the U.S. and Canada, one with 314 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque, and the other with 429 horsepower—with an overboost mode cranking it up to 483—and 516 pound-feet. A 77.4 kWh battery pack allows for an estimated driving range of up to 248 miles or 399 kilometres. For the time being, the GV60 is offered only in a few states and in very limited quantities in Canada.

Genesis GV70

The Genesis GV70 offers two gasoline powertrains, while a fully electric powertrain has just arrived in North America. The latter yields 429 horsepower along with 516 pound-feet of torque, while its 77.4 kWh battery pack provides a driving range of up to 238 miles or 383 km. Aside from the Electrified GV70, the ICE variants can be equipped with a 300-hp turbo 2.5L four or a 375-hp twin-turbo 3.5L V6. AWD is optional in the U.S., standard in Canada. For the 2023 model year, the GV70 gets black-painted rear brake callipers, physical steering wheel buttons instead of touch-sensitive ones, some equipment package reshuffling and new paint colours.

The Genesis GV80, the midsize utility model in the lineup, is powered by one of two engines: a turbo 2.5L four with 300 horsepower and a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 with 375 horses. The 2023 model year brings standard AWD in the United States, which was already the case in Canada. The GV80 also receives a redesigned infotainment system controller, reshaped second-row cupholders, an oil life sensor, equipment packaging changes and paint colour swaps. The 2.5T RWD, 2.5T RWD Advanced, 2.5T RWD Prestige, 3.5T Prestige and 3.5T Prestige Signature trims have been dropped in the U.S., while the 3.5T Advanced became the 3.5T Advanced+. In Canada, the lineup includes 2.5T Advanced, 3.5T Advanced and 3.5T Prestige variants.
