The 2010 Equus is expected to be powered by either a 420 horsepower 5.0L Tau V8 or a 4.6L Tau V8. Both engines will put the power to the ground via the rear wheels. Hyundai’s new eight-speed automatic transmission is also expected to be offered.
The next-generation Equus is expected to also feature a Lane Departure Warning System, Pre-Safety Seatbelt System, and LED-equipped headlights and taillights.
The 2010 Hyundai Equus is expected in South Korean dealerships next month. Don’t expect it to hit U.S. shores anytime soon, since it could cannibalize Genesis sales.
