The 2012 Hyundai Genesis, the facelift of the company's popular sedan, will thus be on display at the Chicago venue and Hyundai's U.S. chief John Krafcik says visiting the company's booth will be really worth your time. The new Genesis will be powered by a new 5.0-liter engine that replaces the old 4.6-liter, thus helping the V8 develop a maximum power of no less than 429 hp, according to The Detroit News.
MotorAuthority also writes that the 3.8-liter V6 engine offered on the current generation Genesis and outputting 305 horsepower is likely to remain in the offering.
Hyundai will begin production of the facelifted sedan soon after the car's public debut at the Chicago Auto Show, with deliveries expected to begin in March this year. Pricing will go in between $45,000 and $50,000, but the full list of specifications will arrive in a day or two.
In the meantime, Hyundai also prepares for the 2011 Geneva Auto Show, with several models to be displayed for those who will attend the Swiss venue. For details on the whole Hyundai lineup for the Geneva event, check out this link.
