True.
Guess we'll have to wait then.
And I too want the LED DRL so bad lol.

i think the trim for Canada is gonna be different, since they were for '10-'12.

2.0T Base-MT/AT
2.0T Premium-MT/AT
2.0T GT-MT
3.8 Base-MT/AT
3.8 GT-MT/AT

Why can't they just keep it the same...

Oh, btw, are the release time the same for Canada and US? or theres a delay for Canada...if so anyone can guess how long? based on the 1st model.

+10000

Just leave it be....the trims are perfect the way they are. I wouldnt mind dropping down to the 2.0T GT/MT with the new power gains.

Thank you very much! Why would anyone spend an extra 20 cents a gallon for 4 HP?
In my '10 GT, I can tell no difference and get 30 mpg interstate speeds on 87 octane.

It's only 6 HP with the present 3.8 engine. I got a bigger boost in performance and mpg with a K&N air filter. I found out the hard way, never replace the air filter with a WIX.

There hasn't been a 2.0T track since the first year. There was also never a 2.0T track automatic. All the options are laid out in the brouchure posted a few pages back. Basically Hyundai is still screwing the 2.0T guys and making you get a 3.8 if you want ALL the options. I only paid 24.5K for my 2.0T Track. Looks like that was a once in a lifetime deal for me. Even if the new bumper wasn't ugly I'd still probably skip a new one since you still can't get a 2.0t track. Unless we see a V8 or boosted V6 in 2015 this will be my last GC.

for 2013 there is going to be a R-Spec model in canada.Not Track but R-spec.
I think that is going to be below the premium trim like the u.s.
they say in the brochure that theres a new line up coming for canada that was called R-Spec and the model does have a limited slip differential,19inch,Leather,Brembo,track tuned suspension.!!!

It does look better without those tacky ass fog lights, that's for sure. Big change since the 10-12 looks kinda plain without the fogs.

I was fine with no DRL's but after seeing those pictures i don't like those HUGE voids where the fogs and DRL's would go.

Also, does anyone know if that front "fascia" bumper thing is matte black or glossy? I want to get mine in black and feel like it would blend it better if it was glossy and not flat. In some pictures it looks glossy and in some flat.

these are the first picture I get for the new gen!!! So I don`t know if they are coming with fogs or not!!! I better like with no FOG and with no usable DLR!!! that`s my choice and I will like that the R-spec will have nothing to make it heavier!!!!

sorry for my bad english! i`m french.

From what I can see, headlights, hood, and bumper from the previous model might swap over. Can't tell until someone tries it though and sees if the mounts the same. Who knows, there might be someone with an older model that wants the new look.
This is for converting from the current front end to the new one (why anyone would want to do that is beyond me) but it will give you an idea of parts required and rough price.

Well, at least we know it's doable now. If we can go old to new, then they should be able to go new to old as well.

It would be a real shame if the black GT still came only with the hideous tan interior.
