The forthcoming 2023 Genesis GV80 is a serious contender in the midsize luxury class thanks to its unique design and roomy cabin. For 2023, the manufacturer will make some enhancements to keep up with competitors. This SUV looks stylish, offering an interior that’s spacious and upscale. On top of all of that, the GV80 earned great safety scores and many awards as one of the safest trucks on the road.
However, thanks to its high levels of luxury, this SUV is capable to rival models like the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, BMW X5, Volvo XC90, and Lexus RX. Beneath the hood, the GV80 offers two different engine options, one which the more potent is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 375 horsepower.
2023 Genesis GV80 Redesign
The 2023 Genesis GV80 is a head-turner SUV that looks very handsome. While it may not be unique to a more established luxury brand like BMW or Porsche, it’s a great replacement. For 2023, this SUV will gain some enhancements on the front and rear fascia, making it even more premium.
Anyway, the size of the Genesis GV80 is about average and is similar to the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, BMW X5, and Volvo XC90 models. This SUV is recognized by its massive grille and unique light signature. Also, the body lines are sleek and more stylish compared to the model it replaces.
The 2023 Genesis GV80 is more modern and quite opulent, especially if you go for the upper trim. In general, no matter which trims you choose, you’ll get a stylish interior with well-integrated tech features. The base model will reportedly come with leatherette seating surfaces, while upper trims are offering genuine leather and luxurious Nappa leather with quilted stitching.
One thing we like about this SUV is its spacious cabin that with the optional third row offers two extra seats. Naturally, adding the optional third row will result in less cargo room. As for the standard equipment, the GV80 includes a 14.5-inch infotainment screen, navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, and HD Radio. There are also safety features like front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, lane following assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic assist.
2023 Genesis GV80 Engine Specs
Beneath the hood, the new 2023 Genesis GV80 will be available with two engines. The base SUV will use a proven turbocharged inline-4 that is capable of producing 300 horsepower. As you can see, this engine provides a lot of power in the class.
Nevertheless, the manufacturer also offers a more powerful twin-turbo V6 engine. This unit delivers 375 horsepower and 391 lb.-ft of torque, which is quite a bit of power. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. Every GV80 uses an 8-speed automatic transmission, which provides smooth shifting.
Release Date, Price
If we can rely on the previous releases, the new 2023 Genesis GV80 should hit stores in the half of the next year. The current Genesis GV80 has a starting MSRP of $49,700 for the base model, while the highest begins at $75,200.
For comparison, the Genesis GV80 is more affordable than the models in the same class such as the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and BMW X5. Interestingly, it’s more expensive than the Lexus RX, Acura MDX, and Cadillac XT6.
