Press your right foot down on the accelerator pedal of the GV70 2.5T AWD and feel what comes next: The thrust of turbocharged power. The GV70’s 300 horsepower is the highest among key competitors in the segment.2 And its torque is an equally impressive 311 lb-ft.
To make sure all of that power gets put to good use, the GV70 comes standard with All Wheel Drive. Launch Control is also standard, part of an 8-speed Shift-by- Wire Automatic Transmission that selects the ideal shift points based on a variety of inputs – like which of the GV70’s drive modes you’ve chosen. From Comfort or Eco to Sport, Sport+ or Custom, you can select the drive mode you want...and the transmission will adjust its shifts to suit.
Of course, the most direct result of all this will probably be a huge grin on your face.
Genesis designers didn’t think of the GV70 2.5T AWD as a machine or an integrated system of digital technologies. They imagined it as a place for human contact.
In the new GV70, that contact includes the world’s first in-vehicle Fingerprint Reader. With it, you can start the engine without a key, load personal vehicle presets and more. Settle into the 12-way Power Driver Seat, and you’ll instantly feel how other advanced features – like a multimedia controller that reads finger swipe and scribe gestures – create a bond between you and your GV70.
You can also talk to your GV70. It’s enabled with Dynamic Voice Recognition, which responds to questions or voice commands spoken in normal, conversational tones. Announce that you want to go home, and driving directions are promptly displayed on the Premium Navigation System’s class-leading 14.5 ̋HD Screen.
Ask your GV70 to turn on the air conditioning, change a SiriusXM channel5 or check on Apple’s stock price, and it responds faster than you can say, “Did the Dodgers win today?”
