Meet the G that Cost Me: 2017 Genesis G90 to Start at $69,050

2017 Genesis G90
-With its flagship G90 looming large on the horizon, Genesis has announced the financial layout required, and the spread is actually pretty narrow, with just $4100 separating a V-6 turbo RWD model from a V-8–powered AWD example.

As we’ve noted elsewhere, the G90 comes very highly equipped, without a ton of extraneous available options to clog up the Monroney. A 365-hp, twin-turbo V-6 3.3T Premium with rear-wheel drive starts at $69,050. Opt to send some of the six’s 376 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels and you’ll shell out another $2500.



Step up to the G90 5.0 Ultimate, and you get Hyundai’s 420 horsepower, 383, lb.-ft naturally-aspirated V8, which starts at $70,450, while an AWD V8 model will once again command a $2500 premium, bringing the tally to $73,150. These numbers clearly compare quite favorably with those of the established full-size luxury guard, including the Audi A8 ($83,450 to start with a supercharged V-6), the BMW 7-series ($82,495 with its turbocharged inline-six), and the Mercedes-Benz S-class ($97,525 with its base turbo V-8).

The G90 hits showroom floors at the end of September.
