On the Hyundai website I see that the V8 is no longer being offered. Perhaps it's gone and when the 2017 Genesis G80 debuts the 3.3 TT will be offered as the optional engine.

Wow that's interesting, but not completely surprising.

5.0 V8 is still offered when ordering a 2015 Genesis.

Nice work, hopefully still will help the v8 ultimates hold a bit more of their value over time!

Wow my last Genesis was only produced for one year as well (2012 Non-RSpec 5.0).

Thought plenty of the pictures in the gallery are of of the V8 including the main Genesis page. The 2016 had disappeared previously too, so nothing is for sure - but it would not surprise me as I have yet to even see a 2015 V8 here in densely populated NJ. Guessing G80 might just go with the 3.8 & 3.3T? We'll see in a few months... maybe even next month at the NY Auto Show?

Two days ago, I was in Chicago Auto Show and they had new G90 3.3T Htrac, G90 5.0 Htrac and G80 3.8 on display.

I am with you, if I would not lose so much money on a trade in for a V6 I would do it tomorrow. :roll eyes:

Turbo's are fun though as power increases are a snap. My son in laws 605hp Audi RS7 is now packing 740hp and over 900 lbs of torque with a little reprogramming. :eek:

Yes, but that's not just a turbo, that's a Turbo V8! I would just quietly move to the right lane.

Thank You for the link to your Chicago Auto Show pics dareckibmw

Did you see anything there regarding what color combos will be offered for the G80 & G80 cars (interior and exterior)?

Unfortunately, I did not. We were too busy just walking around and taking pics.

on a side note, the g90 is pretty bland. I can't see any type of a fire from this car. It doesnt really draw u in to own one.

I agree the ...I was at the Chicago Auto Show and viewed the G90 and was sort of disappointed ...it just seems OK.
The higher end Audi's looked more updated and classy
I also hate the new style Genesis winged logo... it looks dated.

15-20K more will get you a more "modern logo" on an A8
