Looks like the GV80 for the USA market will be revealed during the Super Bowl...

I agree on leasing. I have only done it once and hated the costs involved. Never again. I hope it comes to the US in Jun as many feel it will. I'd want to order mind to be delivered by Oct when my LEASE (ouch) runs out on my Jag. I love the looks of this car and hope that it handles nicely (the biggest reason I got the Jag in the first place).

That's fair to say. I got a great lease factor and paid nothing down. The residual is what it is. I am close with my accountant and he ran numbers for nearly every car I was looking at. Not one lease made sense no matter how it was set up. I also think I'm a decent shopper. I could find a much better deal on my own car mile for mile buying on the used market. Again, there are exceptions to most rules, but in leasing, not many based on the finance guys I am close with (not a finance guy).

Hopefully one feature they add for the US market is a massaging seat for the passenger since it seems the Korean version only has that for the driver. It seems like many, if not most, of the folks who get the massage get it for their wife as a passenger.
Agreed! Almost a negative selling point. I would be reluctant to try to explain to my wife massage feature only available for driver. That would go over like a “Led Zeppelin.”

They both seem to be massage seats. I agree, that I wouldn't want to get any car with only the drivers seat a massage seat. Mercedes did that in the past that was just another reason I passed on one.

Looks like Canada and the USA will get the GV80 at the same time...this coming summer. Sure...could be days, weeks or a month difference...but it won't be such a difference in launch like the G70...or even the new G90. Since all the State Licensing is complete...and the dealer network is in place (although a bloody mess)...there is no reason to delay the release in the USA.

Leasing is usually more expensive. But, not always. I bought my ‘19 Santa Fe via lease and paid it off when the first payment notice arrived. Why? Because at the time Hyundai was offering greater $$$ incentives for leasing than buying. I also did the deal wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

Probably a good article but unless you subscribe you can't get to it. Even turned off the ad blocker.
Generally speaking, the ownership cost of 9 years for one car is very likely cheaper than leasing the same model of car for 3 new models every 3 years for total of 9 years but adding how much maintenance you will spend then you may end up with very minimal difference.
Additionally, you are driving the same car for 9 years vs 3 new cars.
It really all depends on how much you want to spend on luxury and unnecessary non critical stuff in your life.
If leasing a 70k car is funny and doesn't make sense, buying it doesn't make sense either.

Chicago Auto Show official website says the GV80 will be in their booth: 2021 - Genesis - GV80 - Vehicles on Display | Chicago Auto Show That would make sense if indeed they DO run their US intro during the Superbowl on 2/2....with pricing, specs to follow in the summer and the first cars coming in early fall of 2020. That's my guess.

Pretty exciting if you ask me. The more I see, the more I love the looks inside and out. I'm also one of those who must have a seat that I love. I have MS and Transverse Myelitis so I must stay comfortable even driving around town. That's been a big draw of the Mercedes GLE. They have seats that continually move from top to bottom. These seats look like they will be just as good or better. I also need an SUV that I can put my rollator in without putting the handles down (so the compact SUV"s are out of the question. The truck on this will be plenty wide enough.

I'm so curious on pricing though.
