Hyundai has decided to team up with the Rockstar Performance Garage to take the Tucson crossover and give it some serious off-road chops by converting it into a lean, mean, all-terrain machine. This ruggedized version of the Tucson is all set to make its first public appearance at the SEMA Show in November.
"The focus behind this build was to create an off-roader that nobody expected," says Nic Ashby, owner of Rockstar Performance Garage. "The Tucson was a great starting platform with its rigid frame and plenty of room in the engine bay for modifications."
Indeed the final product of this Tucson crossover conversion job is a sight to behold, and it's difficult to believe that this is a Hyundai Tucson. This is a vehicle that can dominate off-road terrain, and proves that smart modifications can turn cuddly family cars into raging off-road terrors.
