The world is finally seeing Genesis as a true luxury brand that can spar with the best from Germany. Showcasing all of its luxury and technology features, Genesis is coming out with a fully redesigned G90 for the 2023 model year. A new design, revised technology, and updated engines will help the 2023 Genesis G90 feel like a bonafide flagship car from the South Korean luxury brand.
On the outside, the 2023 G90 wears a bold, daring design that shares many design elements with the automaker’s smaller vehicles. The crest grille has grown in size, dominating the front end, while two razor-thin headlights that are integrated with the turn signals behind the front fenders make the G90’s face look unique. The triangular taillights are connected by a full-width light bar, while a second full-width horizontal bar sits below the taillights. Large exhaust outlets are integrated directly into the rear bumper. Stunning wheel designs, a large amount of chrome, and angular lines help the G90 feel bolder and fresher than the previous model year.
Just like the outside, the inside of the 2023 G90 gets a major makeover. The dashboard features curvier lines and the infotainment system is now connected in one single unit with the digital instrument cluster. The air vents have moved to one horizontal line across the dashboard, while the HVAC controls have moved to the lower part of the center console. Genesis will continue to offer a rotary dial for its infotainment screen and a few buttons that sit next to a dial for the shift knob. We expect the 2023 G90 to offer an abundant amount of space.
Genesis hasn’t confirmed the G90’s list of standard features yet, but we expect the sedan to be a heavyweight on the tech front. Things like a fingerprint scanner, a digital key, active noise cancellation, a 23-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system, a fragrance system, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, and over-the-air updates will be available. Available UV-C LED lamps in the rear armrests can also sterilize small items.
At the moment, Genesis has only confirmed one powertrain for the G90. The large sedan will come with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Output will be around 375 horsepower. We’re not sure if Genesis will offer the G90 with a V8 engine. An electrified version of the G90 is also expected to be available and will be called the Electrified G90. Rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are expected to be offered. The G90 will also be available with an adaptive suspension called Preview ECS that can scan the road and prepare the suspension for a smooth ride.
Safety features for the 2023 Genesis G90 haven’t been announced yet, but we expect the large sedan to be offered with an extensive list of equipment. The previous model year G90 came with nearly every advanced driver-assist feature as standard equipment under the sun. We don’t think that will change for the new G90 and we think Genesis could add some more high-tech equipment for the 2023 model year.
