The Dynasty was produced in Ulsan, South Korea and it was discontinued in 2005.[2] The Dynasty was the top level flagship at its introduction, but it was a front wheel drive vehicle. It featured higher level of luxury equipment and was available in extended length versions to differentiate it from the Grandeur models.

When the joint luxury flagship Mitsubishi Proudia/Hyundai Equus was introduced, the flagship designation was removed from the Dynasty and sales suffered.

With the introduction of a separate marketing channel for the rear-drive Genesis Motors, the market segment position formally filled by the front-wheel drive Dynasty was replaced by the Hyundai Aslan.
