I have an AWD 2.0 2016 Tucson. I am noticing that it seems that the RPM's are high. Looks like driving at 65 mph RPM is about 2300-2500. Is this normal? I brought this to the attention of the dealer service and he claims that this is fine. I have another Tucson and Ford pick up and the RPM are never that high. Any input would be appreciated.

Hello! I have a 2016 Tuscon Sport 1.6T with the 7 speed dual clutch trans and mine is around that as well when on the highway. Actually, my vehicle, when doing about 80, revs at like 3000-3500 RPM. Your vehicle having a six speed sounds about right to be at that rpm at that speed.

I am surprised with this because I have another Tucson 2015 and this is not the case nor on my Ford. Do you think that this contributes to poor gas mileage?

I believe it could be. I cant speak for the 2.0 engine but my 1.6T gets about 24.5 mpg with mixed driving.

I wonder if there is a "Wiring enhancement kit"

to reduce electrical resistance, meaning less stress on ignition coils and less heat generated.*

Benefits would be:
Increased coil & plug longevity
Quicker starting, even with high load on battery
More stable cold starts; no stuttering/misfires
More stable idle
Smoother acceleration
A/C has less negative effect when compressor is on
Alternator can recharge battery more efficiently when running
Reduced misfiring risk under heavy load
Reduced HID warmup time

I take it you haven't had many manual transmission cars, my 2008 subaru with a 5 speed rev'd at 3000rpm at 70mph.

2300-2500rpm is very normal for a small 4 cylinder engine on the highway. Any lower and you might have problems with a lack of torque while cruising.

That's correct using rpm calculators

Tire diameter is 27.6 (225/60R17)
Final Drive is 3.65:1
Final gearing 6th is .78

RPM @ 65mph should be around 2250 (70 will be 2430)

My limited FWD is accurate using the calculators

Diameter is 27.7
Final is 3.58:1
Final 7th is .72

RPM @ 65 2050
RPM @ 70 2200

Love it. Can't argue with the facts!

I thought this sounded high, and verified this weekend. @77 mine purred along at 2300 RPM.
