The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe debuts in Detroit with big power

We have known for some time now that when the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe made its grand debut, it would feature a refreshed exterior design but the big news at the ongoing 2012 Detroit Auto Show is the massive power increases for both engine options offered in the 2013 Gen Coupe.

Since being introduced, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe has been offered in two forms – 2.0T with a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder and the 3.8 variant that carries a naturally aspirated 3.8L V6. When introduced, these two engines offered an impressive amount of power but as the horsepower war in America has raged on, the sporty Genesis Coupe found itself falling behind in terms of power output. However, with the introduction of the edgier 2013 Genesis Coupe, that deficiency in power is a thing of the past as the 2.0T will soon offer 274 horsepower while the 3.8L V6 will pack a whopping 348 horsepower – more power than the V6-powered Ford Mustang or Chevrolet Camaro.
