How powerful is the engine in the 2021 Hyundai Tucson?

Engine Specifications of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson is a compact crossover SUV with the right stuff to compete in a world flooded with more compact crossovers than you can count. Each one has to prove their worth, and the 2021 Hyundai Tucson has at least one major reason to contend, two engine options. Having two different engine options helps shoppers who might pass over the Tucson based on its default engine and explore the more powerful engine instead. For details on the two engines in the 2021 Hyundai Tucson, continue reading the rest of this entry presented to you by Leduc Hyundai in Leduc, AB.

How efficient is the 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Sedan?

2021 Hyundai Tucson Base Model Engine

If you choose the Essential trim level of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson, you get the base model engine. You can also get the Preferred trim level with the base model engine if you want to save money and still get more features, but the Preferred is sold with both engines. The base model powertrain includes a 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder engine. It can produce 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Hyundai Tucson Available Engine Upgrade

The other engine available in the 2021 Hyundai Tucson is a 2.4L GDI 4-cylinder engine. The difference of .4 might not seem like a lot, but it really changes how much power and oomph your car can produce. At its best, this larger engine delivers 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Competitors have often been putting smaller turbocharged engines into their compact crossovers, but these usually cost more to repair and can be less fuel-efficient depending on how you drive. Choose the Luxury, Urban Edition, or Ultimate trims to get this larger engine automatically. The Preferred trim often has this engine as well.

2021 Hyundai Tucson Transmission Options

As a compact crossover SUV, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson doesn’t need multiple transmission options. The 6-speed shiftable automatic works well with both engine options, and has the added benefit of giving drivers more control when they want to switch into SHIFTRONIC® manual shifting mode. Many competitors put Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) into smaller SUVs to save money, but those who like the feeling of real, shifting gears would never choose a CVT.
