    Genesis GV80: First Official Photos And Details Of Luxury SUV

    Genesis GV80: First Official Photos And Details Of Luxury SUV
    Carscoops
    BY JOHN HALAS
    DECEMBER 31, 2019






    After a lot of back and forth on its presentation date, Genesis finally decided to go public with the first official images and details on its GV80 luxury SUV, just a couple of hours before the clock strikes a new decade (at least here on the East Coast).


    A competitor to the likes of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Audi Q7, the Korean brandís first every sport-utility vehicle is far from an unknown quantity to CarScoops readers, no thanks to a flood of leaked pictures over the past few months.

    The styling, previewed by the GV80 Concept at the 2017 New York auto show, is the collaborative effort of the Genesis Design studios in South Korea, the United States and Germany.
    Like its sedan siblings, the new GV80 is based on a rear-wheel-drive platform unique to the Genesis brand, with all-wheel drive being optional. While no powertrains have been officially confirmed yet, leaked information from South Korea talks of the availability of three engines in its home market.

    At launch, there will be a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel producing 274 hp (205 kW / 278 PS) and 434 lb-ft (589 Nm) paired to an 8-speed automatic for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.8 seconds.

    A few weeks later, it will be joined by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder delivering 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS) and 311 lb-ft (422 Nm) of torque allowing for a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.9 seconds. Sitting at the top of the range will be a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 with 375 hp (279 kW / 380 PS) and 390 lb-ft (530 Nm) of torque, which drops the 0-62mph (100km/h) time to 5.7 seconds.

    In all likelihood, both gasoline engines will be available in North America.

    Don't like the execution of the grille one bit - may as well just used flywire screen. the rest looks good.

    Exactly what you said, the grill looks like they went to the hardware store and just bolted it on without asking the design team.

    The grille looks like that expanded metal mesh material and I need to see more interior other than that side shot. I do however like the side profile on the exterior of it. Maybe if they enlarged the Genesis emblem and put it center grille the grille wouldn't be quite so "in your face" (pun intended).

    I don't know, my wife just saw a video of the refreshed G90 and absolutely loved the new grill. I think its the best "big" grill I've seen.

    Genesis said that the GV80 will be offered in both two and three row layouts.
    This was what I have been wondering. Very interested in seeing this in person, I quite like the exterior and interior design. The article mentioned a 3.5L v6T, I assume that will be the 3.3L v6T already in production. Hope it has an air suspension, once you have one you don't want to go back to not having one.

    This and the new Aviator seem to be bringing significant competition to the segment.

    I think they are talking about new v6 3.5 TT Lambda III that should also go in new G80.

    Wait, if this was a GM, wouldn't want to see real photos and/or in person before crucifying it?

    Don't mind the grill on this, looks better than the sedan that wears it. I find the Aviator better looking outside. Interior looks good, but waiting for the "tacked on i-pad" haters to show up.

    Thanks for the clarification, didn't know there was a next Gen engine coming out this year.

    Hmm, well the side profile looks awesome but I need to see it in person before judging that front.

    Nice to see an automaker making actual luxury CUVs....unlike a brand some of us love so much.

    And the grille looks much better in this application than it did on the G90...it's more squared off here. Hoping the G80 continues the trend of fixing what went horribly wrong on the G90.
