Hyundai trots out luxurious 2011 Equus

Ralph Caggiano of Spring Hill, a longtime Hyundai owner, had dozens of questions: Is the wheelbase longer than the Genesis? When does it go on sale? What kind of gas mileage does it get? He and his family were among dozens who got a sneak peak of the new 2011 Hyundai Equus at Hyundai of New Port Richey. The features were impressive: executive reclining seat with massager, refrigerator for the rear passengers, forward cornering camera. But most surprising was the price tag: $58,900 for the Signature trim, and $65,400 for the Ultimate.
