Elegant, powerful and sporty, the 2021 Genesis GV80 takes the luxury SUV segment by storm. Featuring seating for five adult occupants, the base trim comes with a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. You may also upgrade to a seven-seat configuration on the most expensive model. Produced in four trims, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade is also a major force on the luxury SUV market.


Displacing 2.5 L, a turbocharged I-4 engine is a default installation under the hood of the 2021 Genesis GV80. Rated at 310 net horsepower and just above 310 pound-feet of torque, the four-cylinder powertrain is engineered to burn premium fuel. Delivering up to 75 additional hp, a 3.5 L V6 engine is available for this luxury SUV. Twin turbochargers also help this six-cylinder powertrain produce 80 more lb-ft of torque than the standard I-4 engine. Peaking at just more than 290 hp and 260 lb-ft, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade’s standard 3.8 L engine has six cylinders in a V-style configuration. Burning fuel through the Atkinson cycle, the powertrain has the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) label. Our online test drive reveals other important technical information on this lavish Genesis SUV. For instance, the Genesis GV80 at Genesis of Brunswick is propelled by an automatic transmission with the Intelligent Drive Mode, which has five settings. Utilizing ergonomic paddle shifters, you could quickly toggle through eight gear ratios. As expected, this high-end Genesis model rolls on an all-wheel drive that compensates for a loss in traction on slippery pavement. With leverage from the Electronic Limited-Slip Differential, you can quickly regain control of the vehicle after a sudden slip or skid. Carrying the HTRAC label, the 2021 Palisade’s AWD isn’t quite on par with the GV80’s advanced AWD. Nevertheless, both luxury SUVs have the Snow Mode to overcome hazardous winter weather.
