Engine Specifications and Fuel Efficiency

Let's start by looking at the engines for these two sedans. After all, it's what emboldens them with such athletic prowess.

With the 2017 Genesis G80, you'll get a standard 3.8L V6 engine that delivers up to 311 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque.

Additionally, you can upgrade to an available 5.0L V8 engine that hits a home run with 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque.

The performances of both engines are managed by an 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

This transmission contributes to both a smooth ride and some impressive fuel economy ratings. Your Genesis G80 can get up to 18 MPG in the city and up to 28 MPG on the highway.

While the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E350 does come with a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, its horsepower and torque readings are quite dismal. It barely scrapes by with 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
