We have already seen a Hyundai Tucson that has been transformed into a ‘true off-roader’. Now, the Korean automaker will also be showcasing another tricked-out Tucson that appears to cater for the outdoorsman.
With help from Southern California tuner John Pangilinan, Hyundai recently previewed the Tucson Adventuremobile, their take on making a weekend getaway vehicle for the outdoors.
Perhaps the most apparent add-on to the modified Tucson is the Treeline Tamarack roof-top tent that has space for two campers according to Hyundai. Over to the vehicle itself, it is finished in Army Green and gets an array of off-road equipment including: bull bar and side steps from Aries, Rigid LED light bar and RAYS Gram Lights 57 DR semi-gloss black wheels wrapped in Toyo Open Country A/T tires.
Aside from the overly large tires, it also has a 1.5-inch suspension lift kit for better ground clearance.
Inside the Adventuremobile, the seats are upholstered in Katzkin Custom leather and comes with a bespoke audio system by BP Auto Sound. Audio is then channeled through a myriad of subwoofers and speakers from Clarion. In keeping with the outdoor theme and providing additional convenience, it has a solar-powered generator and a CTEK battery charger.
The exact powertrain was not specified but Hyundai did say it gets a minor performance upgrade. It has an aftermarket intake and charge pipe kit from AEM, and a Magnaflow exhaust system.
“Designed with the weekend adventurer in mind, the Tucson was the perfect platform for an Adventuremobile. The build blends performance with the excitement of the great outdoors, without sacrificing daily usability. The vehicle promotes exploration, making it ideal for the daily commute, weekend excursions, and the occasional road trip,”Pangilinan.
The car will officially be revealed at the 2015 SEMA Show on November 3.
