Planning on ordering a GV80. Any changes on 2022 model? Would love a Prestige model with 20” tire option and curious of any changes possible worth the wait.

Welcome @Charlotte Nc!

Changes are expected for the 2022 GV80 but it isn't clear what exactly yet. We should start finding out in the coming months.
How long are you willing to wait?

Here's what one publication thinks we'll see.

"Our best guess is that they will be utilizing aluminum in a more substantial way to shed off even more pounds from the overall weight of the car. Having knocked it out of the park in this years’ design, Genesis are unlikely to stray too far from the drawing board with the 2022 GV80’s design and they will have undoubtedly turned their attention toward improving the performance of the new vehicle.

The 2021 GV80 starts out at $54, 650 MSRP, a price gap that is a whole 28 grand below the 2021 BMW X5’s offering, which is a world of difference in pricing between two cars that nearly fit the same shoe. A tad less powerful than the BMW X5, we expect that Genesis will be aiming to inch closer to their German counterparts, which will definitely come at a cost to the consumer. We don’t see any reason, however, for the Korean carmaker to attempt to match prices on the other manufacturers’ roasters, seeing as the 2022 GV80 will be aiming to claim even more market share from its competition than it has scored with this year’s model. Pricing will probably hover around the $57,500 mark.

The current GV80, for all its charm, can hardly keep up with the higher-end German competition. Its best offering, a 375-hp twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine will have you zipping off to 60mph in a quick 5.3 seconds. Not bad for a first-time showcasing of a luxury SUV, but thrill chasers will likely opt for a Cayenne instead, or the Audi Q8. Truth be told, for the 2020 Genesis GV80. we don’t quite see Genesis switching out the engine just yet. A more likely scenario would be performance enhancements to the vehicle's drivetrain, and given the rumors that a hybrid version is in the works, it might take a while to see a V8 on the Genesis."

Hey @Charlotte Nc I can't see any drastic changes to the 2022 GV80 from the 2021. If I had to guess I imagine there could be some similar exterior and interior options to the GV70. Hopefully with the matte paint that's expected to come with the GV70.

Tomorrow looks good but it will be a high of 65 Friday it’s going to be raining so we could do tomorrow or skip forward to next week when the weather looks like it’s going to come around again? Do you have a busy lady I’m just doing house in studio set up so I’m game for whenever
