Hyundai Motor America finally plans to add a twin-turbo V6 engine (the 3.3 to be clear) to its Genesis sedan line-up as a part of a move toward downsized and turbocharged engines.

Hyundai Motor America’s CEO Dave Zuchowski, said during the New York AutoShow that this all-new engine would arrive on the Genesis sedan in 2017 or 2018 and have power in the ballpark of the company’s 420-hp, 5.0-liter Tau V-8 but weigh far less. This confirms a information we received and we will publish this week.

Before that new powerplant arrives, Hyundai will incorporate more downsized and turbocharged engines in its lineup as a way to cut emissions and improve fuel economy to meet toughening regulatory requirements, Zuchowski said. The Hyundai Genesis Sedan Turbo will be one of the first

The first example of that trend is the 2016 Hyundai Tucson revealed at the New York auto show last week. The compact crossover uses a T-GDi 1.6-liter four-cylinder, paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, on all but base trim levels.

“We’re going to go forward more broadly with that in the portfolio,” Zuchowski said. “You’re going to see smaller displacement, more use of turbocharging. A lot of it is weight-related, all of it is CAFE-related.”

Stay tuned for this week, we have interesting information to reveal about this engine.

    I have no problem with Hyundai using smaller displacement engines, but for god sakes please ensure performance is up to snuff. The turbo Sonata is pathetic numbers wise versus it predecessor and v6 competition.

    Genesis needs some weight loss for better fuel economy, I’d recommend using aluminum as the body. The fuel economy of 18 city is quite pathetic for a v6, where a bmw 5 series can get around 25. You offer better standard features, but we have to refill at the pump more often.
