2020 Genesis G90: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - November 28, 2018

Model Preview

The Genesis brand is still fairly new, but its flagship model, the G90, is already set for a facelift in 2020. The refreshed 2020 G90 will boast a new, more refined look, updated tech, and a refreshed cabin to further sever its Hyundai roots.

Visually, the 2020 Genesis G90 will differ vastly from the current model. It will still be a large and cushy luxury sedan, but it will take a step toward the premium market with its massive chrome-mesh grille, LED strikethroughs on the front headlights, a lower and wider stance, and all-new squared-off headlights,

Inside, the 2020 Genesis G90’s overall design will remain, but it will gain updates to make it look even more upscale. These include two new two-tone color options, a 12.3-inch infotainment system with navigation, standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, active noise cancellation, and automatic external air prevention that prevents pollutants outside from entering the cabin. Helping enhance interior comfort will be the G90’s adaptive control suspension that will smooth out even the roughest roads.

2020 Genesis G90

Genesis hasn’t announced the under-hood bits for the 2020 G90 yet, but we expect this area to remain unchanged. If this proves true, it will come standard with a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that injects 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. The optional 5.0-liter V8 will pump the output up to 420 hp and 383 lb-ft. This power will head through an eight-speed automatic transmission and out to the rear wheels. We expect the V6-powered G90 to still offer optional all-wheel drive.

Safety will remain top-notch in the 2020 Genesis G90 as it will retain all the current model’s safety gadgets and throw in standard lane-centering assist, automatic emergency rear braking, oncoming traffic detection and collision avoidance, safe-exit assist, and a passenger-side knee airbag. The current G90 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and we expect the 2020 G90 to keep that crown.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 Genesis G90, but the automaker says it will arrive outside South Korea in 2019.

There are no official pricing details yet, but we expect it to rise only slightly compared to the 2019 G90’s MSRP range of $69,345 to $76,345 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Genesis G90’s competition will include the BMW 7-Series, Lexus LS, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
