Report: Hyundai’s Genesis sedan should gain a new twin-turbocharged V6

AutomotiveNews says Hyundai’s gearing up to give the Genesis a new twin-turbocharged V6 mill in the near future as downsizing continues to take its toll on the industry.

According to the report, Hyundai’s CEO, David Zuchowski, said that we should expect smaller displacement motors and more turbocharging.

One example would be the introduction of a new twin-turbo V6 for 2017 or 2018, which could produce as much as the current 5.0L Tau V8 while weighing less. However, there was no indication as to whether or not the new V6 will flat-our replace the V8. That would make us really sad since Hyundai’s 5.0L V8 is quite a peach.

So far, Hyundai’s began their small, forced-induced engine binge with the introduction of the new 2016 Tucson and its 1.6L turbo four with 175hp and 195 lb-ft of torque.
