Car and Driver featured the GV90 on their "Cars Worth Waiting For" list.
WHAT IT IS
Those who are still asking, 'What's a Genesis?' will get a definitive answer when this flagship comes out in mid-2024.
The Korean luxury arm's third electrified SUV will be its biggest and poshest yet and build on the flagship G90 sedan's striking design.
WHY IT MATTERS
The gasoline-powered G90 isn't exactly a volume model—or even well known, for that matter. The GV90 is a luxury SUV, which means it'll probably sell well.
This luxury liner will be underpinned by the E-GMP architecture shared throughout the Korean automaker's most recent electrified efforts. We expect air springs and electronically controlled dampers to enhance the cabin's tranquility.
Don't expect any groundbreaking electrification technology here. The GV90 is likely to use the same motors that propel the Electrified GV70, one on each axle, for a maximum combined output approaching 500 horsepower. Expect the GV90 to use the 87.2-kWh battery from the Electrified G80, which could offer around 250 miles of range. Top-trim GV90s may pack a larger battery.

WHAT MIGHT GO WRONG
After nearly a decade since Hyundai established the luxury brand, people still ask, "What's a Genesis?"
ESTIMATED ARRIVAL AND PRICE
The GV90 should hit the streets in the middle of 2024 with a starting price around $100,000.
