It's still great value compared to its German rivals.
Far from resting on its laurels, Genesis is making some major moves, including a recent teaser of eight new electric cars, and plans to go all-electric by 2030. In the meantime, the focus is on refining its current lineup, including the range-topping Genesis G90. The luxury branch of the Hyundai Motor Group is currently working on a new G90 that promises to bring the fight directly to the indomitable Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but this model isn't expected to arrive anytime soon. Before that happens, the 2022 Genesis G90 will come with a mild price hike according to the company's latest ordering guide.
The 2022 Genesis G90 will see a price increase of $1,000 across the range. This will affect pricing as follows: including destination and handling fees, the G90 3.3T Premium will now cost $74,995 instead of $73,995 for the current model. At the other end of the trim lineup, the G90 5.0 Ultimate AWD will now set you back $81,245 instead of $80,245. The order report does not mention any feature updates, but does show that the highly anticipated redesigned G90 won't be making an appearance for the 2022 model year. This makes sense, as manufacturers tend to not release ordering guides before the car has even made its debut.
Genesis is hard at work testing the redesigned car, and we expect it to show its face in Korea later this year with the same car only coming stateside in 2023. Expect a further price increase for the redesigned and technologically advanced G90. As for powertrain options, we expect the naturally-aspirated V8 engine to be dropped in favor of a new and more efficient 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine that also does duty in the Kia K9. An electric model will join the G90 family later on.
