Hyundai’s New Genesis-Bound V6 Turbo to Make Around 420HP

Hyundai Motor America’s CEO, David Zuchowski, recently announced that the firm’s new 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 was not going to make ~380 hp, but closer to the 420 horses of the Tau V8.

The advantage is obviously having the same power output but with less weight and more efficiency; this engine will equip the top of the range next-gen Genesis coupe and current-gen sedan in N-Performance guise.

It will be one of three engines offered for the revised Genesis lineup: the first is a 2.0-liter turbo, the second is the current 3.8-liter atmospheric V6 with the turbo N sitting at the very top.

TheKoreanCarBlog adds that the supposed market launch date for the unit is 2017.

Apparently, the new turbo V6 gets forged and strengthened internals in order to cope with high-output.

Having 420 hp in something that is an evolution of the widely-acclaimed current Genesis coupe has the potential to give some established sports cars a good run for their money – with that kind of power it can go up against a BMW M4, and if Hyundai plays its cards well (and so far it really has, I think, in the most recent phase of its premium-wannabe makeover) actually make a better driver’s car.

Hyundai could listen to all the complaints people had with the M4 and just know to avoid doing the same things on its (quite similar) offering.
