I'm almost positive that the G70 will come with the 5.0 v8 that puts out roughly 420hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. We often see the new luxury sedans with 4-5L v8 options so that I'm putting out there as the norm.

But.

We've been exposed to the information that the Genesis G80 will come with an option of a 3.3L Twin-Turbo V6. A pretty much de-tuned GTR engine. Producing 365hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, it's quite impressive, with obviously simple tuning capabilities to bring that power up quite easily.

I think it is definitely more than a possibility that the G70 could come with the same engine and transmission setup. That is something I would probably lean towards as well.

What do you guys think ?

It will also be interesting since Hyundai might want to tune and tweak it to their liking, giving us a different overall feel. Then there's the rest of the driving dynamics mixed in that contributes to the overall feel.

It does indeed make sense and it's about the only way they can go while staying relevant to the industry once the vehicle launches, if not they'll be far behind and set themselves up for failure, and to be honest that's not the sort of decision making i've been seeing from Hyundai.

Honestly, it's quite amazing to see how far they've come in terms of quality, technology, and performance. Never would have thought this would have been the case.

With a leaked picture of the Kia GT sports sedan, that might be an indication that the G70 is also due to roll out at NAIAS. With how things are going that's just about the only show I can see it happening at or is the show I believe it should.


For anyone that didn't get to see it:

It sure is. But just keep in mind what we see in that picture is still just a pre-production model and likely the highest trim. So there will be the typical differences from basemodel to high trim, wheels being one of them.

They're releasing teaser videos so I can pretty much guarantee Detroit Auto Show it is. It's on January 8th if anyone is able to check it out.

But I hope it comes with different rims.. those look weird on there in my opinion.
