2021/2022 Genesis SUV Models


If you are thinking about one of the exciting Genesis SUVs, you're thinking about the 2022 Genesis GV70 or the 2021 Genesis GV80. You'll find a wide selection of both the 2022 and 2021 Genesis SUVs for sale at our dealership.

The 2021 Genesis GV80 was the first-ever Genesis SUV and gave drivers all the performance and luxury synonymous with the Genesis name. The 2021 GV80 boasts a 300-horsepower engine, a cabin loaded with luxury appointments, and competitive fuel economy. Not to mention, the Genesis GV80 also received IIHS Top Safety Pick1 recognition.

The 2021 Genesis GV80 has the most cargo space of the Genesis SUV models with 84 cu. ft. of room. This isn't to say the alternative lacks in luxury, as it has everything you need all rolled into a compact SUV.

Here are the cargo volumes for the two available Genesis SUVs:

  • 2022 Genesis GV70: 56.9 cu. ft.
  • 2021 Genesis GV80: 84 cu. ft.

When comparing the models in the Genesis SUV lineup, you will notice they both have all-wheel drive as an option. However, the Genesis GV70 has it as a standard feature on each trim, while the Genesis GV80 has rear-wheel drive on its base model. The higher trim levels will come with this all-wheel-drive drivetrain, and you can choose to add an available electronic limited-slip differential for optimal grip, no matter the road conditions.

The Genesis GV70 is the smaller of the two available Genesis SUVs as it will only carry up to five passengers. It is the perfect specimen of athletic elegance, and it was made for singles and couples so they can learn to love driving again. This compact SUV is ready to zip through city streets in style as it makes a statement with every turn it takes.

You can have either five or seven passengers in the Genesis GV80, depending upon which trim and options you choose. If you decide to go with the Genesis GV80 3.5T V-6 AWD, then you can determine what seating arrangement you would like, and the advanced safety features will keep you safe no matter where you choose to go.

The lineup of Genesis SUVs has continued to expand with the addition of the Genesis GV70 in 2022, and there is at least one more to come. The Genesis GV60 is in the works, and many speculate that a Genesis GV90 will soon join this prestigious group. As these new models begin to hit the market, it will be a waiting game for more luxury SUVs to appear.

The Genesis SUVs pack a serious punch as they offer 300 to 375 horsepower, depending upon which trim level you choose. Power will be in the palms of your hands the moment you take the wheel as you feel the engine purr when you press down on the gas pedal.
