Genesis’ flagship G90 sedan gets a big makeover for 2023 with exterior styling that builds off the G80’s design and adds more distinctive touches. But the changes are more than skin deep. A twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 producing 375 horsepower is the base engine. Buyers seeking more power will find that the 5.0-liter V-8 was replaced by a 420-hp version of the V-6 with a 48-volt hybrid system.
Inside, the 2023 Genesis G90 was also redesigned and includes a long list of standard features. As the top-line Genesis model, it’s equipped with a number of lavish features including power-operated doors, an onboard fragrance diffuser, and an air purifier with a UV-sterilization chamber.
When can I order a 2023 Genesis G90?
On August 2, 2022, Genesis announced that the 2023 G90 can be configured, priced, and ordered on their site and that customers can expect the first vehicle deliveries as early as August 10, 2022. Due to supply chain issues with electric cars, we expect the standard G90 to debut first followed by the hybrid.
How much does the 2023 Genesis G90 cost?
According to Genesis, the 2023 G90 3.5T AWD starts at $88,400, while the 3.5T E-Supercharger AWD starts at $98,700.
2023 Genesis G90 specs, changes, and updates
As the top of the line Genesis model, the G90 competes with the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. However, it’s not an impossible stretch to see it compared with the Bentley Flying Spur which cost almost twice as much. All of these cars have distinctive styling and an abundance of luxury features that would impress royalty. The newly revamped G90 is a solid contender and also belongs in this class.
According to Motor1, the 2023 Genesis G90 has the following specs:
- Wheelbase: 125.1 in
- Length: 207.6 in
- Width: 75.8 in
- Height: 58.6 in
- 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6
- Horsepower: 375 hp
- Torque: 319 lb-ft
- Transmission: 8-speed automatic
Should you wait for the 2023 Genesis G90 or order a 2022 model now?
The answer really depends on if you want the V-8 of the current model or the hybrid powertrain of the new one.
The current Genesis G90 has a lot going for it. Car and Driver rated it mid-pack in comparison with its rivals and said it has “all the comfort, style, and prestige of a full-size luxury car with a bargain price tag.” The Edmunds staff was impressed with the G90’s exceptional luxury and outstanding value.
The drawbacks were minor but both Car and Driver and Edmunds criticized the 2022 Genesis G90’s lack of handling and limited driving excitement. They also commented on the dated infotainment system and felt the Genesis still lacks the cachet of its German rivals.
We expect the new 2023 Genesis G90 to improve upon its predecessor. The current car has been around since 2017 and every model launched since then has offered noticeable improvements in quality, features, and performance. The Genesis lineup doesn’t offer the same prestige as its competitors, but it makes a statement.
