We're in a world now, where getting back to nature and outdoor adventuring is all the rage. That means people in Flemington, Hillsborough, Bridgewater, Somerville, and in fact all over the nation want to know how much their vehicle can tow. Whether it's for camping, moving, or just hauling some gear, the Hyundai Santa Fe can tow up to 3,500 pounds, so it's ready to make things happen for most folks.

With a powerful engine and solid capabilities, the Santa Fe is an all-around great vehicle. Check out Fred Beans Hyundai of Flemington's review of the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe towing capacity.

Santa Fe Engine Lineup

How much your SUV can tow depends on the engine and how it's equipped. The Santa Fe can be had with one of three powertrains. First, and the one that is standard at the first two trim levels, is a 2.5-liter inline-four that delivers 191 horsepower with 182 lb-ft of torque matched up to an 8-speed automatic transmission.At the two higher trim levels, you kick this one up to a 2.5-liter turbo inline-four with 277 horsepower and 311 lb-ft with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.

You can also get a hybrid powertrain that's a 1.6-liter turbo-four with an electric motor and 6-speed automatic, which gives you 226 horsepower.

Performance-Oriented Options

If you're looking to live a life of adventure, you'll also want to consider the wide range of performance-oriented options that bolster the Santa Fe's capabilities. These include the available dual-clutch 8-speed transmission that offers butter-smooth shifting, available intelligent all-wheel drive that puts the torque exactly into the wheels that most need it, regardless of the conditions, and performance suspension options. These include gas-filled stabilizers and dampers to improve your overall control.Automatic traction control systems are also vital to keeping you stable, whether it's a regular paved road, loose gravel, slippery surfaces, or any other terrain. Each trim also comes with a standard hill-start assist that reduces rollback on a steep hill.

Santa Fe Gas Towing Capacity by Engine

When properly equipped, the standard inline-four engine at the lower two trim levels can handle a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds, which should be plenty for your basic camper trailer, boat, or even a small sedan like a friend who got stuck in the mud.

If you want more towing capacity, however, step up to a properly equipped model with the 2.5-liter turbo inline-four engine that can give you the Santa Fe's maximum towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.

Hauling Gear in the Santa Fe

Sometimes, you want to pack up the SUV itself. In the Santa Fe, you get 36.4 cubic feet behind the back row, which increases to 72.1 cubic feet with the seats folded down. That should be plenty of extra space to load up whatever you need.
