At a recent production preview at Hyundai Motor America’s technical center in Ann Arbor, MI, powertrain boss John Juriga admitted that a turbocharged version of the company’s 3.8-liter V6 is possible. “We’re looking for feedback from you folks,” he said.
The idea of a 5.0-liter Genesis Coupe might sound very appealing for something like a Ford Mustang rival, but the fact of the matter is a turbo V6 makes a lot more sense. Sister company Kia showed their GT Concept in Frankfurt back in September, and it was powered by a 3.3-liter turbo V6. We’re pretty sure the car is heading to production as the K9 flagship, and a turbo engine is a must if they are to take on the German saloon rivals.
