2011 Hyundai Equus

Waiting in the wings is a full sized rear wheel drive car, the Equus. With the same standard engine as the Azera, the Equus also comes with a V8 and will be positioned to compete directly with the Buick Lucerne, perhaps even Cadillac's DTS. The current model, introduced in 1999, is undergoing a major revision and will be replaced in 2006. Hyundai hopes to bring this model to the US by 2008, although the Equus name might be changed. Hyundai is also looking at the possibility of creating a separate line of luxury cars and making the "Equus" its first entrant.


What: A large sedan that offers some amenities from the super luxury class for tens of thousands less. When: The car is already sold overseas; Hyundai now says it will be offered in the U.S. by 2011. Price Range: No price range has been announced. The Equus sells for as much as $96,000 in foreign markets, but Hyundai is said to be studying a pricetag in the $50,000 to $60,000 range for the American market
