The GV80, being the brand’s pioneer SUV model, was first introduced in January 2020. Globally, it’s available with various engine options, including a 3-liter diesel, a 2.5L gasoline turbo, and a 3.5L gasoline turbo.

A notable success story for Genesis, the GV80 played a pivotal role in the brand’s global sales figures. From its brand inception in November 2015, Genesis achieved 1 million sales in less than 8 years. The GV80’s global appeal is evident, having registered more pre-orders in North America than in Korea during its initial launch.
