2007 Entourage has 242 HP at 6000 rpm and 251 lb-ft at 3500 rpm per the Hyundai sales brochure.
2007 Sedona lists 250 hp at 6000 rpm, 253 lb-ft at 3500 rpm per the kia.com web site specs.
I'd heard it said somewhere that they re-tuned the Hyundai engine so it made more torque and fewer hp. It doesn't look like it from the peak torque comparison, but maybe the Entourage has a *wider* torque band. Speculating, but maybe it's the exhaust tuning, perhaps done for a more up-scale sound.

So far, this is the first I've ever known that its horse power still a myth somewhat even after it being produced .
and one more thing, my rpm would always around 2000-2500 rpm even at hwy speed (65-85mph)....is it norm? the rpm only rev above 3000rpm when I use the autostick function to shift gear...
#68 of 119 got new engine cover!!!
Jun 29, 2007 (10:04 am)
yahooo...the dealer swapped the better looking engine cover with 3800, V6 and "H" logo...looks lots better now!
Our Entourage mfg date 09/2006...so that's means equipped with 250hp ?? btw, where did you get the info. about the pre-Jul/07 engine with 242hp ???

This is exactly what Hyundai's stating :"For Entourage produced from July 2006 (with 250hp); vehicles produced before July 2006 rated at 242 hp 6000 rpm and 251 lb.-ft 3500 rpm."

Woo hoo! I got one made 09/06 if I'm reading my door sill correctly. I got 8 more hp and and 2 more ft-lbs than I thought I did.

Love it so far. Got right off the truck with only 15 miles. Fit, finish and features are excellent. Gas mileage has been 24-26 on the highway from the beginning. Seems to really move out with only a slight push on the gas pedal. My only (minor!) issue was that one of the tires was low, easily fixed at the nearest gas station.

I have offically joined the not starting club. The only problem is that it had to fall on sunday 7/15/07 at 3 pm, about 120 miles away from home. Just arrived at church camp to drop off the kids. Take a number to register. Seem to have enough time to move the van closer to the barracks and NOTHING. Van was off for 10 minutes. Luckily there was another family there from the same parrish to drive us home. So now I have to wait and see what the dealer can do for me since I am so far away from home. We left it there because its Sunday, nobody is open and were out in the oakypinoaks!!! I'll let them know about the junction box. I did remember reading about CAPECORALBILL's lucky attempt to get it started, but forgot to try the brake pedal release trick. Tried to wiggle the heck out of the wires but no luck. Keep you posted. I'm almost at 16,000 miles

I have an Entourage that was purchased on 4/18 of this year.(It currently has 2157 miles on it.) To date it has spent almost 3 weeks in the dealership. It will not start, as others have stated, intermittently. First they replaced the "junction box", that didn't work. Then they replaced the "negative battery terminal". That didn't solve the problem. I just picked it up again today, and they replaced the battery with a "700 cold cranking amp battery". I was told today that the car sometimes does not produce enough amps to start, but it does produce enought to open the doors, and operate the lights, etc. This explains why my kids can open the doors, the lights come on and the radio works, but it won't start. This also explains why all it takes to get it started is a jump start.
Anyway, I did start the Lemon Law process. (Just in case it happens again.) I am in NJ and you need to notify them of a "last attemt to fix" or you cannot file a claim if the problem occurs again.
I love the van and Hyundai has been good about trying to help me, however, the dealership has repeatedly tried to imply that I am somehow responsible for this problem.
I am hoping that I can move on and my car will start with no problems from here on in, but I did buy one of those "jump starters" today, just in case I am in the middle of nowhere and it happens again.
I will be very interested to see if this becomes a recall situation.

Congrats on your van purchase, I got mine on 05/07 and absolutely love it. When the van was new, my kids were excited and would proudly show the van to their friends opening and closing the power doors on the battery. The manual says 10 operations of power doors on battery (5 opening and 5 closing events) without engine being on is enough to drain enough juice from the battery. Also if you use your van for short trips, and use all power options, the battery does'nt get charged enough. If the battery gets completely discharged, it never gets back to full charge thereafter for the life of the battery unless you replace the fluids. Fortunately, the batteries are sealed!!
Maybe the dealership screwed up the battery on their lot. Was the van on the dealership floor? I am sure the new battery will fix your problems. Please keep us posted!!
