2023 Genesis G90 Revealed Looking Like a True Flagship Sedan
- Genesis has revealed the first photos of the 2023 Genesis G90 sedan.
- The G90 serves as the brand’s flagship and is larger and more expensive than the mid-size G80 sedan.
- The new model should be available in the U.S. starting sometime in 2022.
Genesis still follows luxury-brand tradition and has a full-size sedan serving as its flagship model—at least until a possible GV90 SUV arrives—and the G90 will soon enter a new generation. These first photos shows off the 2023 G90’s new look, which takes the brand’s design language to new heights and looks about as extravagant as a Bentley Flying Spur. We’ve yet to see the interior or learn any specifications, but we’re eager to learn more about the latest Genesis model.
Significantly larger than the mid-size G80, the G90 will likely ride on the same platform as that lesser sedan but with a stretched wheelbase. There will also be a long-wheelbase version of the G90 similar to the Mercedes-Maybach S-class that features an additional 7.5-inch stretch. The G90’s proportions thus give this model significantly more presence, and the new model’s lines feature more sharp creases and hard edges that give it less of a slab-sided look. The intricately detailed headlights and taillights are also more angular than on other Genesis models but feature the same “two lines” motif.
We expect to see a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine serving as the base powertrain, but we’re not sure if the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 used in the current G90 will return. Instead, we’re more likely to see an EV variant called the Electrified G90.
Details are slim at this point, but we should know more about the new G90 within the next few months as Genesis releases specifications and photos of the interior before its arrival at dealerships sometime in 2022.
