Our third focus? Dynamic, distinctly Genesis design. Our first SUV, the Genesis GV80, sets itself apart from typical luxury SUVs with an exquisite blend of elegance and power. Our designers infused it with advanced features that create an intuitive, highly personalized experience.
The first is exceptional quality, reliability and durability. From the start, everything we’ve done has been about building your Genesis to the highest standards. Over our first four years, J.D. Power ranked Genesis as the Best Premium Brand in Initial Quality in the U.S.1
The second is constant innovation. From our industry-leading suite of driver-assist safety features to our connected car apps and state-of-the-science audio and navigation systems, technologies introduced by Genesis are redefining the luxury vehicle experience.
When Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com named our GV80 a 2021 Best Buy Award winner,2 they were thinking about its rational virtues. Like how it blends the refinement, precision and performance of our luxury sedans with enhanced versatility and cargo capacity.
But it’s possible that, after seeing the GV80 in person, emotions came into play. Its design has that effect. Stylish LED Quad Headlamps frame the GV80’s Crest Grille, projecting the distinct identity of Genesis design – a signature element repeated in the dual lines of the Fender Side Garnish and LED Rear Combination Lamps. The grille’s exquisite G-Matrix pattern – a design inspired by the diffused reflection of light from precision-cut diamonds – is artfully interpreted inside of the cabin as well.
The athletic elegance formed by a long hood and setback cabin combine with the GV80’s dynamic wide stance to give it a potent presence. It’s an attitude further amplified by available 22˝Aluminum Alloy Wheels that also echo the G-Matrix pattern.
Genesis GV80 Maintenance Manual
How did we make our first SUV an award-winning SUV? It starts with what Genesis engineers call QRD: Our core principles of quality, reliability and durability. They are instilled into the GV80’s turbocharged power, agile handling and smooth ride comfort. Next, we added a large dose of utility – like a 6,000-pound maximum towing capacity.
Then, we offered the GV80 in two distinct models: A 300-hp 2.5L Inline 4-cylinder Turbo, and the 3.5T powered by a 375-hp Twin-Turbo V6 with standard All Wheel Drive and an available Electronic Limited Slip Rear Differential.5 An Electronically Controlled Suspension with Road Preview is also available to counteract body roll and pitch by continually adjusting the firmness or softness of its shock absorbers.
A jewel-like rotary dial on the center console engages the 8-speed Shift-by-Wire automatic transmission. Another dial – Drive Mode Select – lets you calibrate the driving dynamics of your GV80 to Comfort, Sport, Eco, Smart or Custom settings.
Drive Mode Select syncs with an available Ergo Motion Seat (Driver) that adjusts its power side bolsters tighter to your body in Sport mode, or more open in Comfort mode. You can even set the bolsters to automatically adjust based on your speed.
