  • What is Delta off-road specialists doing on the Genesis GV70?
  • What are the design features of the Genesis GV70 Project Overland?

The Genesis GV70, already celebrated for its luxurious design and performance, is breaking new ground with an unexpected foray into the off-road segment. In collaboration with off-road specialists Delta, Genesis introduces the GV70 Project Overland, a concept vehicle that transforms the elegant crossover into a formidable off-road machine. While this project is currently in the prototype stage, it showcases the brand's commitment to innovation and the pursuit of new automotive frontiers.

The GV70 Project Overland is not just an exploration of off-road capabilities but also a celebration of Delta's 40th anniversary. Delta, known for its expertise in off-road modifications, has worked closely with Genesis to create a prototype that pushes the boundaries without resorting to extensive chassis modifications. To enhance the off-road capabilities of the GV70, the vehicle has undergone strategic upgrades. Notably, a suspension upgrade has increased the ground clearance by almost two inches, providing the necessary lift for tackling challenging terrains. The widened stance, achieved through the installation of 18-inch Classic B Rugged black wheels equipped with Continental ATR tires, contributes to improved stability.

The extended wheel arches accommodate this robust setup, giving the GV70 Project Overland a more rugged and aggressive appearance. Complementing the enhanced stance are additional PIAA lights mounted on the roof and Baja Style lights integrated into the grille, further emphasizing the vehicle's off-road persona.

Designed for adventure enthusiasts who prioritize carrying essential gear, the GV70 Project Overland features a specially designed roof rack with secure attachment points. This thoughtful addition ensures that users can carry their equipment securely, making the concept an ideal companion for off-road excursions.

Genesis invites enthusiasts and curious onlookers to experience the GV70 Project Overland firsthand at the Essen Motor Show in Germany, scheduled between December 1 and 10. The concept will be showcased at the Continental booth, providing attendees with a close look at the marriage of luxury and off-road capability.

While the Project Overland is a captivating concept, Genesis is concurrently working on a facelifted version of the GV70. The refreshed model is expected to feature a redesigned front fascia with headlights reminiscent of the G90 model and an updated radiator grille for combustion-powered variants. Visual enhancements are likely to extend to the interior, with potential improvements in the cabin space.

Speculation surrounds the possibility of the smaller GV70 receiving a dashboard layout upgrade similar to the rumored 27-inch OLED curved screen expected in the larger GV80 model. As Genesis continues to push boundaries and explore new avenues, the GV70 Project Overland serves as a testament to the brand's commitment to innovation, luxury, and versatility.
