    2017 Genesis G80 To Start At $42,350*


    • A month before it arrives at dealers, Genesis announces pricing for the G80


    As the Hyundai Genesis transitions into the Genesis G80 for the 2017 model year, the price also transitions to a higher point.

     

    The 2017 G80 will begin at $42,350 (includes a $950 destination charge), which is $2,650 premium over the outgoing model. That will net you the 3.8L V6 with 311 horsepower paired with an eight-speed automatic. The V6 is also the only way you'll be able to get all-wheel drive (adds $2,500 to the base price). If you want a V8, you'll need to pony up $55,500.

     

    Being a Genesis model, the G80 will feature 3 years or 36K miles complimentary scheduled maintenance and valet services.

     

    The 2017 G80 will arrive at dealers next month.

    Wish them all the best in moving to have a luxury line and what customers will come to expect.

     

    I have a relative who has a Genesis and loves it and brags about how much better it is than anything the germans or americans build and yet when I told him to expect this to be the start of a luxury line that will be separate from the traditional Hyundai family and expect other models and the price to go up as they move to be a true competitor to those german and american luxury brands in addition to the asian ones he said why? Why do that it is a great Hyundai and does not need to become it's only family line of product or cost more.

     

    I think people who are used to Hyundai and their cheaper prices will be lost to the whole notion of a luxury line with better quality materials, service and ride.

     

    Hate to say it, but once a value buyer, almost always a value buyer. My relative has money but is a true cheap skate.

      In light of the fatal crash involving a Tesla Model S and Autopilot back in May, automakers are reconsidering their plans for rolling out their autonomous technologies. General Motors was planning to introduce Super Cruise on the Cadillac CT6 sometime next year. But in light of Tesla crash, GM is rethinking their plans.
      “We aren’t putting a specific date on it,” said GM CEO Mary Barra at a cybersecurity conference.
      Officials told The Detroit Bureau later on that the feature would still appear next year. This would be corroborated by a Cadillac spokesman to Motor Trend.
      “Right now, the plan continues to be that we will introduce [super Cruise] in the Cadillac CT6 in calendar year 2017,” said Cadillac spokesman Donny Nordlicht.
      “We want to make sure it is safe for our customers to use and we’ll launch it when we’re confident in the technology,” Nordlicht said. “Our engineers have been testing and validating the technology for the past several years to make sure all of our systems are focused on providing the customer among the most intuitive and safe solutions. We’re not driven by a deadline, we’re driven to make the system customer-friendly and safe so the exact month of introduction cannot be announced at this time.”
      Insiders at GM believe that Super Cruise should be able to avoid some of the problems that plague Tesla's Autopilot. Like Autopilot, Super Cruise blends information from radar and cameras. But Super Cruise will also use a high-definition map that provides more details than what you can get on a current navigation system. This map will help the system determine where the vehicle is and whether it is safe to engage the system. There is also a retina detection system that monitors the driver and will switch off Super Cruise if it detects if the driver isn't paying attention.

      Sales of Fiat vehicles in the U.S. have been tanking and FCA is making a drastic change to try and reverse this. Automotive News got their hands on documents revealing a new pricing structure that will see Fiat cut the prices on some of their models.
      The base 500 will see a price cut of $2,000 ($14,995 from $16,995). The price doesn't include a $995 destination charge. The big price cuts will come to the 500C lineup as there will now be a $1,495 difference between the cabrio and regular hardtop. A key example is the 500C Abarth which sees its price drop from $26,695 to $21,490 for 2017. Prices for the 124 Spider and 500X remain unchanged.
      A Fiat spokesman declined to comment.
