    • Same great taste, less pain on your bank account


    Before too long, the G90 will be hitting Genesis showrooms. Hence why Genesis has announced pricing for their flagship model.

    When it hits dealers at the end of the month, the G90 will carry a base price of $69,050 (includes a $950 destination charge). For that, it will net you a 3.3L twin-turbo V6 with 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. Standard equipment includes 19-inch alloy wheels, HID headlights, leather interior, power seats (22-way for the driver, 16-way for the passenger); Lexicon 7.1 surround-sound audio system with 17 speakers, 12.3-inch infotainment system, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and more.

    Wanting a bit more oomph? Then step up to the 5.0L V8 which comes with 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Pricing for this model begins at $70,650. The G90 V8 also adds power adjustments for the rear seats with memory function, full LED headlights, and more.

    All-wheel drive is available for both engines for only an additional $2,500

    No effin way would I spend $70K on a vehicle made by Hyundai. 

    No, but I may lease one if there is enough incentive in it.

    Over priced for those over rated DOHC garbage engines. I honestly do NOT see how they could sell them when there are far superior cars out there in this segment.

    Can't get a V8 in a CT6, the twin turbo V6 in this is cheaper than a CT6 too.  So I don't think it is really that unrealistic a price.  A Lexus LS460 is this price, and that car has a V8 from 2007 under the hood.

    But you can get a twin-turbo V6 in the CT6 with more horsepower and torque and AWD for $1k less than the G90.... and that gets you the Premium Luxury package with Panaray, and all the exterior video upgrades.  Plus, the TTV6 still has more torque than the V8, so for the price of the V8 G90 RWD, you can get a CT6 with Panary, AWD, 4-wheel steering, Magnetic ride control, active braking, plus a whole host of other stuff.

    The CT6 is still the better deal.

    You could argue the CT6 has better looks or interior, or better equipment for the price for sure.  The 2 cars are close, but you can argue the V8 is better than a turbo V6 if you like V8 sound or smoothness.  I am not saying I would take a G90 over a CT6, I actually think there are better buys than both for $70-80k, but I don't think the Genesis pricing is out of line.

    The sound of silence?  We're not talking about Camaros or Mustangs here... these are posh and quiet luxury cars. How the power is delivered is more important than a sound the manufacturer will try hard to suppress in the first place.

    V8s are smoother and make less noise than a boosted 6, especially the GM 3.0TT which has gotten knocked for be unrefined, although I never have been in a car with it.

    Either way, if you are going to spend $70,000 on a car, get a 2 year old S-class off lease, it mops the floor with anything else at $70k.

    1. I've driven the 3.6TT in multiple (every?) application and it is not at all unrefined.... I can't imagine the smaller displacement version would be less refined than the big one used in V-Series and V-Sports.  There is simply less moving mass in there.  Even in the ATS-V, I would almost call the 3.6TT too refined for that application.... but that is mostly exhaust tuning.

    2. Nearly no one pays $70,000 for a 2-year old full size luxury car because they can't lease them. This is the crowd that leases everything because then they can write it off their taxes.

    It's kind of a heavy car compared to the CT6, I think the interior looks the part for the price, but so does the CT6 for the price.

     

    Either way, both cars make a statement for the price, but the Cadillac does a better job of being it's own kind of car.

     

    This is just a car that beats the Lexus LS at it's own game, which itself came about to beat the S-Class at it's own game. I think the original LS actually did that, but the current one is so long in the tooth, and the concept that Lexus showed recently of their future flagship doesn't work. The LC is sexy as hell, but it's a coupe and it works.

     

    I'm okay with the way they price it, because it looks like their lease payments and how they turn out (like Drew mentioned) are going to be the judge of how well they do. They don't plan to sell money here, more like off-loading any excess capacity they reserve for Korea.

    `

    They sell 30,000 G90's per year there, kind of like how in the recent good years, Cadillac sells ~30,000 Escalades in the U.S.

      They say timing is everything. As I mentioned in our quick drive piece of 2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium, the automaker announced a refreshed version for 2017. Changes included a revised exterior, improved interior materials, and a revised EyeSight active safety system. Once we heard about the refresh, we knew we need to get one in for review. That’s what happened this past fall as a 2017 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring arrived at the Cheers & Gears Detroit garage. The XT is the important bit as it means we have the turbo engine.
      Let us begin with the engine as this is one of the best points of the Forester. The XT gets a turbocharged 2.0L boxer-four producing 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This comes paired with Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT and all-wheel drive. The turbo engine solves some of the issues we had in the previous Forester. The 2.5i wasn’t as responsive as we would have liked and it takes its sweet time to get up to higher speeds. With the turbo engine, the Forester leaps into action. Yes, it does a take a moment for the turbo to spool up. But once it does, the engine delivers power at a steady and smooth rate.  Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT is one of the better CVTs on the market. Part of this comes from the simulated gear changes Subaru has programmed for the CVT. This will fool most people into thinking that the transmission is a standard automatic. Also, the CVT doesn’t have much of a groan when you decide to floor the accelerator. The downside to the turbo engine is fuel economy. EPA fuel economy figures for the 2.0XT stand at 23 City/27 Highway/25 Combined. Our average for the week was 24.7 MPG. If you’re expecting Subaru to make some changes to the suspension and/or steering for the Forester 2.0XT, then you’ll be very disappointed. The 2.0XT is the same as the 2.5i we drove earlier. That means a smooth ride over some of the worst roads Michigan has on offer, but a fair amount of body roll when going around a corner.  Changes for the 2017 Forester’s exterior include a new grille design, LED accent lights for the head and taillights; and a new set of wheels. The XT also gets a more aggressive front bumper. While the Forester is still a box, at least the changes have made it a bit more stylish. The interior remains mostly unchanged when compared to the 2016 model. The only change we noted is the option of brown leather for the XT Touring that is used for the seats and various parts of the dash and doors. It is a nice touch, but it would have been nice if Subaru had gone a bit further with the luxury touches - especially considering the price of our tester. Subaru has upgraded their EyeSight system for 2017 by installing a new set of color stereo cameras. Subaru says the new cameras allow better detection of various objects and a wider range of monitoring. We believe it as the updated system was able to detect vehicles slightly faster than the previous system when using the adaptive cruise control system. There is one big issue for the 2017 Forester 2.0XT Touring, price. The base price is $34,295. Equipped with an option package that brings a larger screen for the Starlink infotainment system, EyeSight, and reverse automatic braking, the as-tested price comes to $36,765. Taking into consideration for what you get for the price, the Forester 2.0XT Touring isn’t worth it considering you can get into some luxury crossovers for around the same price. You can get the Forester 2.0XT in the Premium trim which kicks off at $29,295, but you cannot get EyeSight as an option. If you really want a Forester with a turbo engine, wait for 2.0XT Touring to hit the used car lot as it will become a slightly better value. Otherwise, skip the 2.0XT and go with the Forester 2.5i or another crossover. Disclaimer: Subaru Provided the Forester 2.0XT Touring, Insurance, and One Tank of Gas

      BMW has been in a holding pattern in terms of producing diesel vehicles for the U.S. as they were awaiting approval from the EPA retesting diesel vehicles. Soon, 2017 model year diesel vehicles will be rolling off BMW's assembly lines and heading off to the U.S.
      "Diesel models will be going into production shortly at our manufacturing plants," said Rebecca K. Kiehne, product & technology spokesperson at BMW of North America to Green Car Reports.
      As we reported back in October, the EPA was holding back the certifications on a number of diesel vehicles as they subjecting them to new tests to uncover possible cheating - thanks Volkswagen. In our report, BMW said they would not start production of the 3-Series and X3 diesel models until the end of the year. Production of the X5 diesel would begin in January. 
      The production restart of BMW's diesels comes at an interesting time. The EPA is currently investigating the 3.0L EcoDiesel used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 for possible violations of the clean air act. Over at Volkswagen, the board has given the ok for the $4.3 billion settlement with the Department of Justice over the diesel emission scandal.

      Most of us knew this was going happen, but there were some that hoping that somehow the Chevrolet SS would continue on after production of the Holden VF Commodore ended. To those who fall into this camp, it is time to move on as the SS will be no more after 2017.
      Alan Batey, head of GM North America confirmed this yesterday at the Detroit Auto Show. Batey also said there would not be a replacement for the rear-drive sedan.
      “Obviously it’s unlikely there is anything to follow because of what is going on in Australia. It was an optimistic play from our perspective and it’s played out well and been a nice addition to the range. It’s not mainstream. It’s small volume,” said Batey
      In 2016, Chevrolet moved 3,013 SS sedans.
