    There's been a deluge of pictures of the Hyundai Equus surfacing in the last few days, and new official images have turned up that give us a glimpse both inside and out. The new exterior shots show off two different grille treatments, with the V6 models get Genesis-esque horizontal slats, while V8 models use vertical elements. A straight-on side view also shows off the size of this big sedan -- it's a long wheelbase with lengthy rear doors, a true executive sedan in size and style. Inside, the appointments appear luxurious and comprehensive, ready to take on the big guns from Lexus, Mercedes, BMW and Audi. Hyundai's saying that it looked past its usual practice of engineering a vehicle to a price point and just went for broke with this new Equus to make it truly great. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and plans are underway to bring the model to the North American market, possibly as a 2011 or 2012 model.

    I'm guessing 50-55K is the price point at which people will question the value of that car :o
