Hyundai Tucson: Trailer Towing / If You Decide to Pull a Trailer

  • Consider using a sway control. You can ask a trailer hitch dealer about sway control.
  • Hyundai recommends that you do not tow with your vehicle for the first 1,200 miles (2,000 km) to allow the engine to properly break in.
  • Do not exceed 65 mph (104 km/h) or the posted towing speed limit, whichever is lower, when towing a trailer. Note that towing speed limits differ by state. Always be aware of the posted towing speed limit.
  • Trailer instability is more likely to occur when descending steep or long downhill grades. Pay close attention and slow your vehicle speed when descending a long downhill grade. Allow more time and distance for braking and do not brake suddenly. Downshift the transmission to a lower gear to reduce your vehicle speed and also to help prevent brakes from overheating.
  • Carefully observe the weight and load limits provided in the following pages.

Towing load limits

Your vehicle can tow a trailer if you carefully observe the towing load limits, use proper equipment, and follow the towing guidelines. Check the load limits before driving.

Total trailer weight

Do not exceed the maximum allowable weight of the trailer, cargo, and everything in or on it. Refer to the table on the following page for the maximum allowable trailer weight.


Exceeding the load limit or improperly loading your vehicle and trailer can cause a collision, resulting in serious injury or death.

Be sure to check the loading of your vehicle and trailer carefully before driving.
