Hyundai seems to be teasing the U.S. with its largest sedan, the Equus. Hyundai has been making various generations of this car for over a decade mostly for the home market in Korea, and it has done a good job of keeping it of North America’s radar, until now. At the beginning of the year there was a teaser sketch , and now official pics and a press release (in English) has surfaced.
So, is Hyundai thinking about giving the Genesis sedan a big brother in America? Time will only tell. What we do know is that the new Equus will come with the 268 hp 3.8-liter V6 and 360 hp 4.6-liter V8 from the Genesis. Hyundai may also enlarge the V8 to 5.0-liters for the large sedan. The Equus should be in Korean showrooms by next month.
