2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Towing Capacity
When properly equipped, the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe towing capacity reaches 3,500 pounds with the 2.5L turbo engine. There are several factors that contribute to the outstanding Santa Fe towing capacity, from what’s under the hood to the available features that make towing easier and safer on the roads of Huntsville and Moulton.
How Much Can a Hyundai Santa Fe Tow?
As stated above, when equipped with a 2.5L engine and trailer brakes, the Hyundai Santa Fe towing capacity can hit 3,500 pounds. You will find this engine as the standard offering on the Santa Fe Limited, Calligraphy, and Calligraphy 2.5T with AWD. For trims that do not have this engine option, the Santa Fe towing capacity is still quite impressive. Read on to see what you can expect from the two powertrain selections for the latest Santa Fe:
2.5L Inline 4-Cylinder Engine
- 2,000-pound towing capacity
- 191 hp
- 181 lb-ft of torque
- 25 city/28 highway FWD* & 22 city/25 highway AWD*
- Available on the Santa Fe SE & SEL
2.5L Inline 4-Cylinder Turbo Engine
- 3,500-pound towing capacity

- 311 lb-ft of torque
- 22 city/28 highway FWD* & 21 city/28 highway AWD*

Keep in mind that if you are looking to utilize the maximum Hyundai Santa Fe towing capacity for both engines, you will need to equip your Santa Fe with the trailer brakes system. If you do not add trailer brakes to your vehicle, the Santa Fe can only tow 1,650 pounds.
