According to Automotive News, the modified four-door sedan will be launched by the end of this year. They didn't give any details, but comparing with the recently released 2012 Genesis sedan, the upgraded Equus gives a lot of promise.

    The 2012 Hyundai Equus will be equipped with 5.0-liter V8 engine. FYI, the Genesis 5.0 R-Spec produces 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque, these characteristics can be transferred to the 2012 Equus. The Hyundai Genesis is also available with the 4.6-liter V8 power unit, which may also be installed on the 2012 Equus.

    The modified version should receive a new Blue Link infotainment system. No considerable interior changes are expected. It is supposed that the 2012 Hyundai Equus will be presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Fuel consumption ratio is 16 mpg/city and 24 mpg/highway. High-strength steel and crash-durable adhesives create a rigid body structure that gives the Equus a solid feel. Advanced materials reduce noise and vibration. Safety items include nine standard air bags, including a drive knee and rear seat-mounted bags.

    According to John Krafcik, Hyundai's America president and CEO, “When you're spending this much for a new car, you don't want to feel like you've been shortchanged on engineering, technology or features. Equus Signature has the technology and content of fully-optioned flagship models from Lexus and BMW, while Equus Ultimate delivers a specification approached only by our competitors' low-volume, special-order models.”
