The all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis has a redesigned advanced high-strength steel platform making it stiffer to accommodate its new available HTRAC® AWD system, using no shared components with its previous generation. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is offered with a choice of rear-wheel-drive or new HTRAC® All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) configurations.
The Genesis 3.8-liter direct-injected Lambda engine has also been further optimized to deliver a flatter overall torque curve at low rpm for enhanced driveability producing 311 horsepower and 293 lb.-ft. of torque. The Genesis 5.0 has the 420 horsepower Tau 5.0-liter V8 engine and is also mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The new Genesis will be built at Hyundai’s Ulsan, Korea plant, with U.S. sales beginning in the Spring.
