- Genesis Model Type
- Genesis G80 Sport
Is that because of size of Telluride that it cant be a RWD ?Front drive - based vs rear drive - based. Just picture the basic design without a body, just a "frame." What are the physics with the heavy engine hanging out in front of the front axle line as in the front drive - based design, or the engine mostly or completely behind the front axle line. There is a reason that all but the lowest models of Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, and even the Hyundai group are rear wheel drive - based designs.
Sorry, I meant 3.8L.
You are looking at the old Explorer. In the current one (2020), the 2.3L turbo makes 300hp and 310tq and tows 5300lbs. The 3L turbo's tow 5600lbs and in Canada anyway, only cost about $10K more msrp (loaded vs loaded).the 3.8 in the Hyundai/Kia makes essentially the same power as the Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, and Honda Pilot, roughly 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque
yeah the 2.3L TURBO would feel faster as the turbo gives it a lower torque curve, but it is the same power 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.
however if you read the tow capacity specs on the Ford, it is only 2,000lbs with a class 1 hitch and 3,000 with a class 2, even the AWD, the Turbo V6 with 400hp can get you a 5,000 lb tow cap, but is $20,000 MORE in price.
The Telluride and the Palisade both come with a 5,000 tow capacity from the base model up.
I like boxy SUVs so I like Range Rovers or Telluride or Tahoe or Denali.I was in a Telluride and was very impressed. I'm not impressed by the drive train and the look is not my favorite, but overall, it's a great value and an SUV I would strongly consider if I wanted or needed a large SUV and or could only afford something in that segment.
I don't feel it's fair to compare the two SUV's. The Genesis has taken things to a different level. The looks (subjective of course) are so much nicer for the GV80 as are some of the color options. That extra money goes into a better drivetrain etc..
ON paper and in reviews it seems like both are close to the leaders in their segments. I go over the 'Hyundai' badging once their cars became reliable a few years ago, unlike most of my friends who have to have a European badge. Most won't even look at the Lexus brand. I just like a great car. Heck, I love the Mazda's look and drive, lol.
I WANT ONE!!!!! WOW!!!!
I think I found my current Cadillac Escalade future replacement; hopeful the GV80 value depreciates like the G80 sedan or worst so that I can buy a used cheap($25k-$30k) fully optioned out model by 2024.
of course it’s subjective. Heck I love the look of many. The Jag to me is beautiful but I too like the Land Rover. I was looking at a Discovery Sport model.
How would you rate reliability/ownership costs/driving handling and performance compared to Genesis owned by you till date?Yep; purely subjective.
I'm on my third Genesis, and for all the right reasons.
Our family situation calls for a crossover or mid-sized SUV, so I've been following the introduction of the GV80 eagerly. But what I've seen so far is just another fancy SUV. Granted, likely furthering the Genesis quality brand but..
My F Pace's presence, its simple, flowing elegant look, evokes the unmatchable E Type Jag. As of now, I'm keeping it.
