Genesis’s most luxurious model—the G90 sedan—is getting a dramatic redesign for the 2023 model year that will bring it into the modern era. Exterior styling is inspired by the G80 sedan and GV80 SUV but with a few unique touches that symbolize the G90’s place at the top of the company’s model hierarchy. Genesis says the brand’s twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 will be under the hood as the standard powertrain. Rather than the 5.0-liter V-8 that’s the upgrade engine in the 2022 model, we think Genesis will instead offer an all-electric model with two electric motors and a massive battery pack. The G90’s interior has been redesigned to pamper occupants with a plethora of unexpected features, including an onboard fragrance diffuser, power-operated doors, an air purifier, and a UV-sterilization chamber in the rear center armrest.
All 2023 G90 models will come standard with a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine that’s found in other Genesis models. An eight-speed automatic is also slated to be standard and we expect both rear- and all-wheel drive arrangements to be offered. The engine makes a stout 375 horsepower and should deliver brisk acceleration. An air suspension will be available and Genesis has said the car will feature a “Chauffeur” driving mode which we assume will create an extra-smooth experience for passengers. An electric variant—likely to use the name Electrified G90—is also expected, but Genesis has not yet released any info about that car. When we get a chance to test drive the new G90, we’ll update this story with test results and driving impressions.
