Genesis GV80: Utility Vehicle of the Year | Harlingen, TX
Our family-owned dealership may sit close to the southernmost tip of Texas, but we at Genesis of Harlingen have to admit it: The Canadians know their stuff, at least when it comes to SUVs. Utility vehicles are suited to our needs down here — whether we are hauling a boat down to the Gulf or taking the trailer up for a weekend of camping at Big Bend or Guadalupe Mountains National Parks. But SUVs are also crucial to Canadian driving — especially in the winter.
That is why it is such an honor that the new Genesis GV80, available now at Genesis of Harlingen, was named the 2021 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. The award comes from the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada. What makes it even more exciting is that this is the brand’s first SUV — meaning the Genesis GV80 beat out the competition on its very first try.
About the Genesis GV80
Hallmarks of the 2021 Genesis GV80 include its athletic design language and leading technologies, such as the Adaptive Suspension with Road Preview and Road-Active Noise Cancellation.
More than 80 Canadian journalists conferred to determine a winner. In total, they considered more than 250 vehicles.
“We are pleased that the first-ever Genesis SUV, GV80, has received this prestigious award,” explained Richard Trevisan, Brand Director of Genesis Motors Canada. “With its bold design and the latest technologies, GV80 exemplifies the ambition of Genesis. We believe that being a leading consumer brand means developing an exciting product lineup that is paired with unparalleled customer experience. We’re honoured to receive this recognition here in Canada.”
Genesis vehicles are no strangers to Canadian awards this year. Genesis earned four 2021 autoTRADER.ca Awards, and the G80 won the J.D. Power 2021 Canada ALG Residual Value Award.
