The launch of the new Genesis G80 is delayed until the beginning of 2020September 18, 2019
According to a new report, the launch of the 2020 Genesis G80 model year was postponed from September to the beginning of next year.
Just last month, brand representatives announced that the premiere of the new G80 will take place this month in South Korea. In fact, after its launch was first rescheduled since April of this year, Genesis boss Manfred Fitzgerald said the G80 would indeed be unveiled in September.
However, a source who wants to remain anonymous says this is no longer the case, as there is some kind of delay associated with the 2.5-liter Turbo Theta III engines and the 3.5-liter Turbo Lambda III, which the G80 is going to use for model.
No matter when the new G80 finally arrives, we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Most importantly, it will take on a new look inspired by the G90, including an intriguing triangular front grille and separate head and taillights.
Photo spies have not yet been able to take pictures of the interior of the G80, but if the South Korean automaker wants to make the premium sedan a competitor to cars such as the Lexus GS, Audi A6, BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it should make it more prestigious and modern than its predecessor.
Although the new G80 can get the aforementioned 2.5- and 3.5-liter engines in some markets, in the USA it will probably be sold with an entry-level 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, as well as 3.3- liter twin turbo v6.
