The base Genesis provides a rich assortment of standard features. These include the handy proximity key with alarm and entry system, 18-inch alloy wheels, power windows with front auto-up/down and pinch protection, heated leather seats, wood-grain-accented dash, Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone interface and USB/iPod auxiliary inputs.
A pair of optional packages—Premium and Technology—add an array of features like premium leather upholstery, a sunroof, a rearview camera, rain-sensing windshield wipers, navigation, xenon headlights, heated rear seats and much more. The catch is that they also add $8,700 to the 3.8's MSRP, making it almost as expensive as the 5.0 R-Spec.
Its 3.8-liter V6 has 333 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque and earns fuel economy ratings of 18 mpg city and 27 mpg city.
