Korean manufacturer Hyundai have been hard at work on developing a new engine for some of their future vehicles. The company have confirmed the development of the engine unit and have confirmed it to be a 3.3 litre unit which will also come twin turbocharged. The engine has been given the name of the V6 Turbo Gdi. One of the first vehicles expected to use the engine could be the Genesis range which is one of the most popular selling Hyundai models on the road today. Thanks to the new work made to the engine, we see that compared to the standard turbo engine, torque has been updated now coming in at 513NM. The standard non turbo engine used in the Hyundai Genesis produces 311 bhp but the new technology has been included which sees a climb by 27 bhp now resulting in 338bhp. As soon as any more developments in this story are issued, we will keep you upto date with all of the latest.
