The 5.0-litre V8 will be replaced by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6.
The next-generation G90 is already on sale in some markets.
The G90 flagship sedan is the only remaining and last Genesis vehicle to ever offer a V8 engine. Sadly, as we know, the V8 will eventually be phased out for all automakers and the Hyundai Motor Group is no different. The V8 might be out but the power won’t be.
The new-generation Genesis G90 will see the Tau V8 swapped out for the group’s twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 which produces 375 horsepower and 391 lb.-ft. of torque. Although the V8 generated more horsepower, to the tune of 420, the V6 puts out 8 more torques at lower rpm. Bottom line, no performance will be lost.
The new G90 will be assembled on a new RWD platform and, according to Caradvice, will support electrified powertrain options. Last April, Genesis revealed the G80 EV so it’s likely they’ll share not only the V6 but the electric motor and battery configuration.
The next-generation Genesis G90 should be unveiled later in 2021 and go on sale in 2022.
