After introduced in 2004 as 2005 Tucson, 2006 Tucson was slightly changed mainly for interior. 2006 Tucson is nicer than 2005 Tucson. I don't think 2007 Tucson will be any different than 2006 Tucson. With everything being standard figures, only thing I see to be added in 2007 would be the power driver seat, probably only on Limited model. In November, you can get up to $1500 in rebates if you finance your vehicle through HMFC since you already own a Hyundai.

The rumor mill for 2007 has the engine power increasing to around 197hp for the 2.7 six and 160hp for the 2.0 four. Both for the Tucson and KIA Sportage. Was on the KIA Sportage forum a couple months ago.

What I heard is that they would use the new 2.4 from the Sonata in the Tucson. Only speculations however.

Replacing current 4 cyl with Sonata I4 is very certain as Hyundai will be moving to aggressively remain competitive with CRV and Rav 4. Although it will not be significant in horsepower as these models it will offer better fuel economy over existing Tucson. 2007 model with new I4 and increased hp in 2.7 V6 may appear after Spring of '06.
Good catch on the upgrade to power driver seat in limited. Also look for auto locking doors and manual tilt/telescoping steering wheel as well.
#943 of 1450 programming Tucson keyless entry
Nov 16, 2005 (9:32 pm)
Anyone know if there's a known method to program the keyless entry for Tucson? My husband has mis-placed (lost) his set of keys. I've found the exact key fob's on Ebay but doesn't include instructions. In looking at Hyundai's service site, it looks like it may be more involved than some models have been in the past. (Price to get new remote from dealer was quoted to me as ~ 170 while I found 2 key fobs on Ebay for 30 plus shipping. But I don't necessarily want to get them if I can't get them programmed)
#944 of 1450 Timing belt in the Tuscon

Typically other Hyundai cars require timing belt replacement at 60,000 miles (per the owners manual) but if you are a betting man wait a bit... they normally last longer. I changed out one on my sons 2000 Elantra at around 80,000 miles and it looked new.

Any rumors on when this engine will appear in the Tucson? My guess is that it will be in the 2nd qtr of 2006! Looking at buying but the only fault I can find with the current Tucson is its present 4 cylinder engine configuration which gives poor gas mileage and sluggish performance. From all my readings the 2.4L Theta will cure these problems with a 10-15% improvement in mpg while providing a good healthy increase in HP. Additionally, it will level the engine HP/torque playing field with the new RAV4, CRV7, Saturn VUE and the Dodge/Jeep Caliber/Compass. What are your best guesses??
