I wonder if the engine in the new Azera coming out in the States in 2012 ....the Lambda 2 and the 6 speed transmission would fit my 2006 Azera.??
What do you think?
Okat guys ..no Im not nuts but my Azera has bigger sway bars,H&R lowering springs, 2009 shocks, tower bar, polyurethane bushings, custom made "Azera "
emblems, dash kit in black, sirius radio, back -up camera , parrot blue tooth,
cross drilled /slotted rotors. Led headlite rings,custom grill..THE CAR
LOOKS MAGNIFICENT, and drives BEAUTIFULLY...corners flat as a pancake.
I hate buying cars....the old good cop. bad cop routine..oh sezs the saleman I can get you xxxxxx$$$$$ for your car..let me talk to the manager...salesman comes back with....sorry the manger sez we can only give you yyyyy$$$ ( and that aint more than xxx gentlemen)
screw it ...Id rather fix up my car and keep driving it till it stops altogether!! thank you
very much..anybody had the above experience..nuts! I wonder who would tell me within the Hyundai organization if the new engine and tranny would fit. The "new"
Azera coing out in 2012 in the US of A is the same car as the older models except
for the grill and some cosmetics to the front end.

;I cannot imagine the cost of buy a brand new engine, tranny, and all other ancillary items necessary to make this happen.
If you hate buying cars that much, I'll gladly be your broker for a nominal fee. All you have to do is write the checks!

According to Edmund's Inside Line, the 2011 Azera will have the Lambda 2 and Hyundai's new 6 speed transmission. Here's the link. So it's not just a cosmetic refresh.
Per Inside Line: The 3.8-liter DOHC V6 in the 2011 Azera Limited also gets a horsepower bump, again thanks to the addition of variable valve timing on the intake side. The revised engine delivers an estimated 283 hp at 6,000 rpm and 263 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm — up from 263 and 257, respectively.
Hyundai said it also expects fuel-economy gains with the bigger V6. The previous 3.8-liter V6 returned 17 mpg in city driving and 26 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The revised version is expected to return 19 mpg in city driving and 27 mpg on the highway.
The 2011 Azera models also get a fuel economy indicator that displays a green light to indicate when driving habits are contributing to good fuel economy.

I don't know where they get their gas mileage figures, but, my "real life" driving numbers are ~20 city ~24 highway.
Anybody else want to post theirs?

Mileage on our '06 Azera - per computer - is 21.2 for the over 3 years we have had the car. Winter drops that figure but it rises in summer, the car is garaged and is never warmed up before departing. Driving is 80% small town and suburban, and 20% freeway, all at 5 over the limit. In my experience, stop and go city driving absolutely kills the mileage. Conversely, we have attained 29/30 MPG at a 70 MPH cruise. My wife accelerates aggressively and brakes hard, while I hardly ever accelerate hard and coast a bit before braking - my mileage is about 2MPG better than hers on average.
Your mileage may vary.

I've gotten as high as 28mpg on the Hgwy but yesterday on a 20 highway mile trip I got 30.1 mpg. I usually get 18mpg in the city.

OK, guys - this really should be in another (pre-year) forum, but here's the deal: if you're using gasoline that has been - mmm - "enhanced" with 10% ethanol, you're going to get 10% *LESS* gas mileage, that's just a fact. In my '08 I get a consistent 28mpg on the highway, even if I cruise around 76-78 if I'm burning 100% gas, only about 25 or 26mpg when I'm burning corn-enhanced fuel. If I take a 100 mile Interstate only journey, I can easily get 30mpg at 70 when burning the real stuff. YMMV of course, void where prohibited and all that...

Ethanol has less "oomph" than gasoline, therefore, lesser mileage/gallon, but the corn-producing states' politicians and the Greens have LOTS of "oomph"...

The politicians and the greenies have lots of gas, foul smelling.

Yeah, a Bush deal that is going to help us be less dependent on "foreign" oil. What most folks don't know, other than ethanol get us LESS gas mileage, is most of our oil is imported from Canada!!!!!!
I love (really hate) how they always use the Asian cartel as the bad guys here. We're saving a stinking butterfly from existance as to not drill in Anwar which is nothing but a 95 million acre waste land....... who the hell are we saving the oil for? A butterfly? They don't need oil...... they use air power....... gawd, it's endless how much crap Washington feeds us and expect us to keep swallowing it down like the kool-aid they sell it as.....
I'll stop my rant now and save you all from how I feel in totality
