The next Hyundai Genesis Coupe is adding a new engine to its lineup along with all-wheel drive.
According to The Korean Car Blog, a test mule was spotted testing wearing a label that read, “3.3T 8AT AWD.” The new engine is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 that will make somewhere around 480 hp. It will be linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Though the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine was discontinued for the 2015 model year Genesis Coupe, it is expected to return when the new car is revealed. The current naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 is also expected to remain on the options list when the new car is revealed.
The new turbo V6 will be offered on the N performance version of the car which will also likely come outfitted with revised suspension and performance enhancing components.
Hyundai recently teased what we can expect from the new Genesis Coupe with the Vision G Coupe Concept, pictured above.
Production on the new engine is slated to begin in 2017.
