We are all excited about the next-generation of the Genesis Coupe and intrigued as to what new features will come with it.
Our good friends at Blood Type Racing attended the Chicago Autoshow, displaying their Genesis Coupe BTR Edition. They provided us with some pictures of the new Hyundai 3.3 Turbo GDi engine never shown before, with features and specification information on the monitor display.
The main feature of course are the Twin-Turbo on this engine, they are very small in size but if you like modding your car, then you’ll know what to swap out first.
We also have this Intermediated CVVT (I-CVVT) we are not exactly sure what they mean by that but talking to couple Hyundai/Kia Tech and researching about CVVT on new engines, we find out that the new 2016 2.0T Sorrento have an E-CVVT cover compare to the other years, that don’t have it. Thank you Adam Donnelly for helping us research on this subject.
We are not sure if that’s what they meant, so we contacted Hyundai and we will update this article when we get an answer.
Next is specifications, and we now find a Horsepower and Torque graph. They have tune them at 365 hp and 379 torque. The only problem now is, what about the 3.8L N/A engine with 348 hp and 295 torque? We see a big difference in torque but horsepower the new 3.3L only makes 27 hp more.
With all that said, the N/A used to have more HP than the 2.0 Turbo engine for the Genesis Coupe, are we going to see another N/A engine replacing the 3.8L? We don’t know anything new about a N/A engine but as soon as we do, we’ll make sure to let you guys know.
