Manfred Fitzgerald. the man in charge of Genesis Motors just confirmed we will be getting two Genesis SUV before 2021 is out. In the end I believe we'll see GV70, GV80 and GV90 SUV's. If you're interested in other non-SUV Genesis products, they also have plans for 4 more also by 2021. I'm hoping for a compact crossover to use during my daily commutes to work and back.

More on future Genesis SUV's:

  • “This is only the beginning of it,” he said. “We will have an extension of our product line-up until 2021, we will have six vehicles out there, of which we will have the first SUV which will be followed by a second SUV shortly thereafter. -- Manfred Fitzgerald
  • “So, it would be good to have a full sedan line-up and a full SUV line-up. And then we have products like Essentia, so it’s possible to have product like coupes in the future as well.” -- Manfred Fitzgerald
  • GV70 - "A GV70 mid-size SUV would make sense as it would add valuable sales volume, with the segment it would compete in being one of the most popular, with contenders such as the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Audi Q5 among the potential model’s rivals."
  • GV90 - "On the other hand, a GV90 upper-large SUV could act as a flagship variant for the company’s SUV line-up and would help enhance its reputation as a prestige brand when competing against the likes of the Range Rover, BMW X7, Mercedes-Benz GLS and Lexus LX."

The success of the G90 SUV is going to be critical for Genesis, there's a high benchmark that's been set with the likes of the X7, GLS, LX, and Range Rover. I'm pulling for Genesis to knock it out of the park and shake things up in the high end market.

I think success comes down more to the cheaper SUV segments, its where Genesis will see sales volume that make the most money for them. G90 and GV90 not so much.

Can't wait for the updates.
The G90 is our only point of reference for now and it has a lot of things that could make it here.

I can't wait either! There's so many different ways Genesis can approach both the GV70 and GV80. Especially if they incorporate elements of the G90.

Many ways but there are few that do well.

GV70 = sporty Stelvio like SUV.
GV80 = luxury full size

thats all I want to see!

Genesis shouldn't have a problem doing that. It would be a huge win if they can look as good as the Stelvio too!

Well they proven good design can be done with the G70, new G80 and G90.
In addition to that, they have the right leadership in place to make it happen!

Improved driving dynamics along with a performance trim and or performance model would help as well.

That would definitely be a plus and cool to see. But I'm not sure if they're going to start off with a trim or model like that.
