The Power and Capabilities of the 2017 Hyundai Tuscon

What's new for the 2017 Hyundai Tuscon?

The 2017 Hyundai Tuscon continues to dazzle consumers with improvements made that span everything from interior upgrades and material enhancements and also premium audio, infotainment, and connectivity. The drivetrains continue to offer extensive fuel efficiency and the interior is quite stylish. The 2017 Tuscon also contains a lot of power and a lot of capability, so read on and learn about how powerful this vehicle actually is.

The Power of the 2017 Hyundai Tuscon 

The 2017 Tuscon offers top efficiency powertrains and allows you to choose what how much power you desire. The base model is equipped with the standard 2.0-liter, direct-injected four-cylinder engine and can produce up to 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft of torque that gets paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This six-speed automatic transmission allows for a SHIFTRONIC manual shifting mode and even includes an overdrive lock-up torque converter for higher fuel economy at highway speeds. The fuel economy for this engine delivers up to 26 miles per gallon combined. As for the Eco, Sport, and Limited trim levels, the 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft of torque. The turbocharger utilizes low-inertia turbo-spooling response characteristics and an electronic wastegate control in order to deliver more precise control of the manifold pressure. This power engine also utilizes a water jacket insert that allows for the cooling in the upper level of the cylinder block, where most combustion heat is generated. This ultimately results in lower cylinder head temperatures and allows for leaner air and fuel mixtures for increased fuel efficiency.

Refined and Capable

The 2017 Hyundai Tuscon also offers an all-wheel drive system that has been developed by Hyundai with the help of Magna Powertrain. This system is equipped with a driver selectable all-wheel-drive lock that can allow for a differentiated torque split between the front and rear wheels. This is beneficial for off-road and extremely slippery road conditions. This system is also equipped with an Active Cornering Control, which will automatically transfer torque to the wheels with the most traction. This allows for a reduction in understeer and also enhances corner performance by braking the inside rear wheel. This also delivers more torque to the outside rear wheel and provides a torque-vectoring effect. Also incorporated in the system is both the Hillstart Assist and Downhill Brake Control to assist drivers in facing sharp inclines or declines.

The Tuscon is also equipped with a long wheelbase and wide track that allows for a greater ride comfort and linear stability, but also enhances driving dynamics. The strategic use of structural adhesives at high stress points on the Chassis and the extensive use of hot-stamping method allow for an increase in rigidness. Also, the structure utilizes four-point bushing mounts in order to improve comfort and reduce road noise.
