Sources from Hyundai indicates that the 2010 Genesis Sedan will come available with an 8-speed transmission in the V8. It will be a Hyundai built transmission and forgo the ZF 6-speed currently used in the V8. The goal will be to decrease fuel consumption by keeping the engine in the optimum power band for all driving conditions. It will also help the Genesis validate that it is a serious alternative to the other luxury cars that the Genesis competes with. This all coming in at significantly less than the BMW 7 series or Lexus.
