There’s a lot going on at Hyundai-Kia these days, especially in powertrain engineering. Never wanting to be behind the competition, the collaborative South Korean automakers have confirmed that they’re developing a new turbocharged V6.

Displacing 3.0-liters, the engine is expected to feature direct fuel injection as well as other efficiency and power-enhancing add-ons.  The end result is expected to be 350 hp and around 33 miles per gallon when bolted under the hood of the next-generation Hyundai Genesis.

Which Genesis model is unclear at this point since the company offers both a coupe and a sedan, but the sporty two-door seems like the more logical application for this new force-fed six.

The top Genesis Coupe on the market right now features a 3.8-liter V6 engine that delivers 348 horsepower with 295 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough grunt to propel the car from a standstill to 60 miles an hour in less than 5.5 seconds.  Assuming the new engine behaves like other turbocharged powerplants – delivering bucket loads of off-idle torque – the car should accelerate appreciably quicker than today’s model.
