Genesis Updates GV70 for 2025, Releases Pricing

Standing still is a great way to get run over, especially in the cutthroat segment which is the luxury midsize crossover game. Genesis has just released images of its 2025 GV70, packing an enormous new infotainment screen but only a moderate price hike.

It’ll take the most eagle of eyes to discern exterior changes, a least absent a 2025 model parked side-by-each next to an equivalent from the previous year. New lighting technology is apparently baked into those trademark two-line headlamps, while the grille is said to have gained a skiff of new detail work. Around back, the turn signals align a bit better on plane with the front lamps, along with a new module cropping up on the rear spoiler studded with cameras for reverse gear and mirror duties. New paint choices are on tap for 2025 including a raft of matte options.

Inside, it is much easier to spy the improvements. Gone are the separate units of gauge cluster and infotainment system, replaced with a 27.0-inch OLED display integrating the two in a single horizontal layout. This brand is better than most when it comes to designing a usable interface for this type of gear, so we’re intrigued to learn how Genesis will creatively use all this newfound digital real estate. The ventilation controls are now described as ‘touch based’ which generally gives us the vapors but at least we can see that large surface areas for those duties remain just below the air conditioning vents. Peep close and you’ll also see a fettled Genesis logo on the steering wheel.

Pricing has also appeared deep in the bowels of Genesis’ media site, explaining a 2025 GV70 2.5T AWD model will start at $45,700 which is just $600 more than 2024 model as indicated by the customer-facing build-and-price tool. Assuming the new screens and such are part and parcel of all trims, and there is nothing to suggest they are not, this is more than reasonable. The range tops out at $67,900 for a GV70 3.5T in Sport Prestige trim.

    This message is for Matthew Guy. I just want to say thank you for the photo article titled Tailgate Party: Ford Talks Truck Innovations. It was really interesting. I did not see on the home page and almost would have missed it. I think it should be posted like Corey's Cadillac series. 🙂

    No hybrid? No EV? What year is this? lol

    I kid -- of course there is an electric version.

      Even with the electric, big mistake in not having an HEV variant.

      However, there are rumblings that Genesis has been working on a 2.5T hybrid powertrain which would suit the GV70, but probably won't be ready til the next gen model.

  • 3-On-The-Tree I don’t think Toyotas going down.
  • ToolGuy Random thoughts (bulleted list because it should work on this page):• Carlos Tavares is a very smart individual.• I get the sense that the western hemisphere portion of Stellantis was even more messed up than he originally believed (I have no data), which is why the plan (old plan, original plan) has taken longer than expected (longer than I expected).• All the OEMs who have taken a serious look at what is happening with EVs in China have had to take a step back and reassess (oversimplification: they were thinking mostly business-as-usual with some tweaks here and there, and now realize they have bigger issues, much bigger, really big).• You (dear TTAC reader) aren't ready to hear this yet, but the EV thing is a tsunami (the thing has already done the thing, just hasn't reached you yet). I hesitate to even tell you, but it is the truth.
  • ToolGuy ¶ I have kicked around doing an engine rebuild at some point (I never have on an automobile); right now my interest level in that is pretty low, say 2/5.¶ It could be interesting to do an engine swap at some point (also haven't done that), call that 2/5 as well.¶ Building a kit car would be interesting but a big commitment, let's say 1/5 realistically.¶ Frame-up restoration, very little interest, 1/5.¶ I have repainted a vehicle (down to bare metal) and that was interesting/engaging (didn't have the right facilities, but made it work, sort of lol).¶ Taking a vehicle which I like where the ICE has given out and converting it to EV sounds engaging and appealing. Would not do it anytime soon, maybe 3 to 5 years out. Current interest level 4/5.¶ Building my own car (from scratch) would have some significant hurdles. Unless I started my own car company, which might involve other hurdles. 😉
  • Rover Sig "Value" is what people perceive as its worth. What is the worth or value of an EV somebody creates out of a used car? People value different things, but for a vehicle, people generally ascribe worth in terms of reliability, maintainability, safety, appearance and style, utility (payload, range, etc.), convenience, operating cost, projected life, support network, etc. "Value for money" means how much worth would people think it had compared to competing vehicles on the market, in other words, would it be a good deal to buy one, compared to other vehicles one could get? Consider what price you would have to ask for it, including the parts and labor you put into it, because that would affect the “for the money” part of the “value for money” calculation. An indicator of whether people think an EV-built-in-a-used-car would provide "value for money" is the current level of demand for used cars turned into EVs. Are there a lot of people looking for these on the market? Or would building one just be a hobby? Repairing an existing EV, bringing it back into spec, might create better value for the money. Although demand for EVs is reportedly down recently.
