    Is There a Turbocharged V6 That Hyundai Is Working On?

    Hyundai is looking towards more turbocharging for their engines. Speaking at Hyundai’s product preview and engineering tech session, powertrain boss John Juriga said a turbocharged version of the company’s 3.8-liter V6 (offered in both the Genesis coupe and sedan) is a possibility for the future.

    “The 3.8 is a contender for turbocharging for some high-output applications.”

    Juriga went on to say that such an engine already exists and is undergoing testing. However, speaking with AutoGuide, Jurega said that the Hyundai engineering team is constantly exploring new engine options and that the existence of a prototype is no guarantee that such an engine will make it into production.


    Expanding on Juriga’s comments, HMA CEO John Krafcik said the automaker is currently at a crossroad with future engine plans for its high-performance and premium models. Krafcik referenced the two Genesis coupe concepts; one with a 5.0L V8 and one with a supercharged 3.8L V6. The two vehicles were built to generate feedback to see what people preferred.

    The supercharged V6 seems likely, but Krafcik did say they were considering a 450 hp V8. A V8 in a Genesis coupe would be a tasty treat indeed. Perhaps they can do both, but that would be 4 engines for a coupe that doesn't have a lot of sales volume. Maybe they should just supercharge the V8 instead.
