What’s New for ’11
- The Equus shares a stretched version of ’s global rear-wheel-drive platform with the Genesis, gaining over 7 ins. (17.8 cm) in length. It will initially be powered by the same powertrain; a 4.6L Tau V-8, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. As a mid-year running change, the powertrain in the Equus will be replaced by a direct-injection 5.0L version of the Tau V-8, which will be coupled with a new, in-house 8-speed automatic.
