The 2022 Hyundai Tucson details have finally been released: Scheduled for a 2021 unveiling, the automaker’s compact utility vehicle looks nothing like its predecesso­r and is also considerab­ly larger. The plethora of powertrain choices begins with a 187-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. An optional turbocharg­ed 1.6-liter four-cylinder delivers 180 horses. On the hybrid front, the Tucson’s base system is a turbo 1.6-liter-four-cylinder/electric-motor combo that produces 227 net horsepower. The available plug-in hybrid system increases that output to 261 horsepower and it can also operate on electricit­y alone for up to 28 miles. The Tucson N performanc­e model, which is slated to arrive soon after launch, is expected with a 275-horsepower turbocharg­ed 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
