      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.

      At an event is Seoul, South Korea yesterday, Genesis finally unveiled their new GV80 luxury SUV.  The overall look of the GV80 has been leaking out on the internet for months, but we finally get the full official release now.
      The interior and exterior of the GV80 is designed with a common thread to give a familial look with the G70, G80, and G90.  The GV80 introduces a new quad headlamp design that will eventually filter out to the other vehicles in the Genesis lineup. The crest grille first seen on the G90 is here too. The interior of the GV80 focuses on the "beauty of white space". The designed accentuated the width and space of the of the interior with wide horizontal lines and thin air vents.  In the center is a 14.5-inch split screen infotainment display. Genesis intentionally limited the number of hard buttons and switches for aesthetic reasons. The GV80 comes in either 5-seat or 7-seat models. On up-level models, soft materials cover every surface from the inside of door handles to quilted knee pads that line the lower sides of the console.  The transmission selector is a dial in the center console. The integrated controller can be operated by an onscreen keyboard or by handwritten letters. 
      Trips in the GV80 are designed to be stress-free. It gets equipped with a Road Active Noise Cancellation technology to reduce road noise. The system is one of the advanced and fast responding systems in the world. The electronically controlled suspension with road preview helps maintain a smooth ride by recognizing road imperfections ahead via a front camera.
      The GV80 is based on a unique new rear-wheel drive platform, while all-wheel drive is available.  In South Korea is till be equipped with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine while the U.S. will get a choice between two unspecified turbocharged engines. All-wheel drive models in the U.S. will be equipped with an electronic rear limited slip differential.
      There is a host of safety and driving assistance technologies in the GV80 including Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Highway Driving Assist II, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot collision Avoidance Assist, Rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, and driver attention alert warning. In the event of a collision, there are 10 airbags, including a center mounted airbag between the front occupants.

      Over the holiday, Genesis released some official images of the upcoming Genesis GV80 SUV.  The Genesis GV80 originally leaked out with unauthorized pictures in early December, but now we have a clearer and more official view.
      The GV80 sports the large shield grille that the new 2020 Genesis G90 wears, but also includes new split headlight design. This motif is reflected in the taillight design as well.  Inside the dashboard is wide and low, to emphasis width. Most of the controls are touch sensitive and a large, wide screen rises up out of the dash for the infotainment system. The drive selector is a jewel-like rotating dial in the center console. 
      The GV80 rides on a Genesis-unique rear wheel drive platform and will likely be powered by a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 making 365 horsepower or more with a possible power boost. There is also the possibility of the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder found in the Sonata N-Line that makes 290 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The transmission will likely be the 8-speed automatic found in other Genesis vehicles. 
      We will be seeing more of the GV80 as the month progresses. It goes on sale in it's home market of South Korea later this month.
