You won't (AFAIK) ever see a 2.7 in a Limited, at least not in this country. 2.7 has a timing belt, 3.3 has a timing chain. You won't feel that the 2.7 is underpowered until you point it west towards the Divide. Then you'll be happy you've got the 3.3.
Ah, thanks canderson. Chain would certainly be preferred but not a huge deal for me. This thing will be driven 95% of the time by my g/f along the front range but I don't need to re-experience my youth dealing with high revs headed into the hills when we do take this car.
Is the 3.3. found in any models other then the Limited (e.g. SE)?
-- but as far as I'm concerned, it's the BEST engine Hyundai ever produced in terms of bulletproof dependability.
We just had a 2.7 that tried to digest its' own valves (3 of the exhaust on Bank 1) for no appearent reason..... It got HYundai engine in a box.. had 1 yrs ago that dropped the liner down approx 1/4" at cylinder 6, made a mess out of things.
