Genesis G80 Refresh Forgoes 409-HP Engine

Updated Sedan Tech: Major Omission Revealed

When Genesis showed off their refreshed 2025 G80 model earlier this month, there was a lack of information pertaining to its specs, and more emphasis on the re-vamped design and interior. But fortunately, the South Korean automotive marque has recently published the crucial particulars regarding the revamped luxury sedan, including all those tech specifications ready for nerds to dive into.

It’s been established that the design of the vehicle is divided into two separate versions – standard and Sports. We are now able to inform you that there will be a limited selection of available engines. As was the case with its predecessor, drivers have the option of picking a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (which produces 300 horsepower and offers 311 lb-ft of torque) and a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 variant (with 375 hp and 391 lb-ft) mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Both RWD and AWD configurations are possible as well.

No reference to the G80 Performance via its One-of-a-Kind plan was made by Genesis, and it appears the sedan’s spec sheet will not feature the 409-hp e-turbo motor from the GV80 Coupe.

Wheel sizes of 18”, 19”, and 20” are available with various coatings depending on the model and powertrain. The two design models differ in their adornments; featuring a double diamond mesh grille andappendages finished with chrome for the typical version, and a black grille with larger diamond form and black-finished details for the Sport package. Additionally, the Sports edition embracesbutterfly bumper air intakes granting an audacious look, as well as exceptional wheel patterns.

In terms of coloring, seven different polished tones are included: Uyuni White, Savile Silver, Makalu Gray, Vik Black, Tasman Blue, Hallasan Green, and Brooklyn Brown. Additionally, chosen Matte versions of Verbier White and Makalu Gray can be obtained; with the G80 Sport coming in Cavendish Red as an available option.

Although a global selection has been created, the exact specifications for the United States are yet uncertain, so we may not be provided with every one of them.

A sizable overhaul has been provided to the cabin, resulting in a 27-inch OLED display which is integrated with instrumentalization as well as infotainment. This is generally present on all varieties, supplemented by supplementing redundant buttons and rotary knobs made for fundamental functions (such as setting the volume, switching between radio channels, using the navigation system, controlling media playback, skipping tracks, selecting favorites, and changing settings). Additionally, there is a central console knob that can be used to adjust a plethora of settings.

We anticipate that feature availability may be different for the US, but according to the global website, heated and ventilated front seats with 12-way power adjustment are included as standard, along with a heated center console armrest. These are upholstered in genuine leather with a “G-Matrix” pattern; yet buyers have the option of the Signature Design Selection I, which includes quilting and piping, hairline aluminum trim, and extra synthetic leather details, or the Signature Design Selection II that features Prime Nappa leather, real wood trim, a two-tone steering wheel, and luxury suede trim for the headliner.

A multitude of hues are available, including Ecru Camel single-tone leather, Ash Gray/Vanilla Beige two-tone, or Obsidian Black single-tone. The Sport models get a sport-exclusive inner side with specific stitching, brushed aluminum accents, metal pedal covers, and a wheel with a level bottom.

It is expected that the new G80 will come to America in the year 2025, as a model for the year. Closer to the launch, complete details and costs will be announced. Yet to be revealed is whether or not the G80 will adopt the e-turbo motor from the recently renovated GV80 and the newly unveiled GV80 Coupe.
