Hyundai Launches 2.0L Turbo and 3.8L V6 Crate Engines
There has been a ton of buzz about the aftermarket in the wake of the SEMA show, which makes Hyundai’s announcement of its first crate engine program all the more exciting.
Hyundai will continue its march into the performance world with the 2.0-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder and the 3.8-liter V6 from the Genesis Coupe.
A pair of options will be available for the 2.0-liter: a $4,500 model that’s ready to be bolted in with a turbo added later, and a $6,000 version that comes with all the turbo and plumbing included.
The cheaper of the two options was put out with the aftermarket crowd very much in mind, with Hyundai believing it offers more options in terms of adding a turbo.
The 3.8-liter V6 will cost $9,000.
The arrival of more Genesis Coupes into the pre-owned enthusiast market has meant a growing interest in the affordable potential that the rear-drive platform delivers, especially in the tuner and motorsport market.
The introduction of a crate engine program means that there is now an affordable option for the average tuner when it comes to modifying their Genesis Coupe, or for simply getting a littler more power under the hood without having to pay a premium price.
The crate engine idea is a great one, as it allows tuners to create their own unique engine without spending a fortune.
If all goes well, look for Hyundai to expand the crate engine program in the future.
