2021 has been a great year with several exciting launches from Hyundai. We got all-new models like the Santa Cruz and brand-new trims levels like the XRT. But wait, there’s more. Hyundai has another year-end surprise for fans looking to get their hands on the 2022 Hyundai Tucson.

What’s new in the 2022 Hyundai Tucson XRT?
The Korean automaker has the first images of the 2022 Tucson XRT, and boy are we impressed! The adventure-ready 2022 Tucson XRT features design tweaks that give the already rugged-looking SUV an even tougher off-road look. Although it is based on the mid-spec Tucson SEL trim level, the XRT trim looks tougher and rugged than the standard model with its blacked-out design elements.
Changes on the XRT trim include:
- Exclusive front and rear fascias with rugged detailing
- Beefier black cladding around the sides and the wheel wells
- Gloss black monotone exterior side mirrors
- Dark window surrounds
- Cross rails on the roof rails
- Exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black
Apart from this, the XRT gets approach lighting and side steps that welcome you to its handsome interior, which features an all-black cloth seating and black headliner to go with the exterior. The XRT also features a tow hitch which will come in handy for towing a trailer or a boat. The rest of the specs remain unchanged.

Any changes under the hood?
Since basically the Tucson SEL with the Convenience Package, the XRT doesn’t bring any changes under the hood and is available only in the standard gasoline-powered 187-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. And just like the standard model and the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe XRT, the Tucson XRT also comes with a choice of FWD (front-wheel drive) and AWD (all-wheel drive).
Price and Availability
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson XRT starts at $32,625 for the FWD model and the AWD model costs an additional $1500. It will be available at dealerships, including here at Hyundai of St. Augustine, as soon as January.
