2022 Genesis GV70 Puts The Sport in Sport Utility from $42,045

Possibly one of the most anticipated cars of the year, the 2022 Genesis GV70 is the second SUV in the ever-expanding Genesis portfolio. 

Genesis today announced the North American pricing for the GV80’s younger sibling, the GV70. The 2022 GV70 goes on sale in the US with a starting price of $42,045, including destination while across the border, the sporty-looking crossover will start from $49,000 CAD destination charges included. 

GV70 customers will also get a host of luxury features as standard. Scheduled maintenance with Service Valet and connected services along with map updates will be complimentary for the first three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. In Canada, the same package is available for five years or 100,000 km. The trim breakup too is relatively unique to the two markets but both will get the same powertrains. 

A 2.5-liter turbo-four combined with an eight-speed automatic gearbox will be the base offering. The motor makes 300 hp of max power and 311 lb-ft of peak torque. AWD however, is standard across the range. A 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 from the GV80 is the other option and will produce 375 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. As with the 2.5T, the 3.5 also comes with an 8-speed box and AWD as standard. 

The base 2.5T AWD standard starts from $42,045 and offers convenience features like 12-way power-adjustable driver’s perch and 8-way powered passenger seat, a dual-zone climate control, and the 14.5-inch infotainment screen as standard. In addition, driver assistance systems like highway drive assist, blind-spot collision avoidance with cross-traffic alert, and lane-keeping and lane-following assist are all standard. The Select “package” costs $4,000 more and adds 19-inch alloys, ventilated front seats, and the Lexicon sound system to the package along with power tilt and telescopic steering wheel.

The 3.5T Sport Prestige is the top dog in the GV70 trim lineup and comes with features that are exclusive to the trim.
