Hyundai Genesis Facelift to Have Diesel & Turbo Models

After the announcement made by Hyundai USA CEO regarding the next engine replacing the V8 TAU engine a lot of rumors started and it seems its about time to see those new changes coming to the second generation of Genesis Sedan (DH).

New pictures of a camouflage Hyundai Genesis facelift are arriving, which could mean a refreshed model is arriving but with said update comes a new engine.

As a lot of people we are waiting for the 3.3 TwinTurbo to officially arrive to the Genesis and that means more power on a V6 engine and lower emissions, just like the CEO said.

Now on this picture we found the Genesis sedan in camouflage at Korea and we are thinking this could be the 2.2-liter CRDi VGT Diesel engine with 147 kW (197hp) and 436 Nm (322 lb-ft) of torque. This same engine is found at the 2015 Grandeur and latest Santa Fe.

Also the guys at WorldCarsFans spotted a camouflage Genesis Sedan at Nurburgring circuit and at the video we can speculate this could be the diesel inside this prototype, due to the sound while taking off but we are not 100% sure and also the exhaust pipe. In any case, the Genesis sedan is in need for a Diesel engine for the other markets (like Europe and South Korea) and we might see one coming out soon.
