Hyundai revealed a specialized version of its Tuscon compact crossover, designed to appeal to the biggest fans of The Walking Dead. Hyundai has been a sponsor for the smash hit TV show. The cast even uses a Tuscon that they found as their reliable transport around the zombie-stricken southeastern portions of America.
What do buyers get? A Tuscon, obviously, with a unique Ash Black exterior complete with side vinyl graphics and unique badging. Four decal types are available, which all represent different factions metioned in the series.
The inside also receives some updates such as black leather seats, special floor mats, a seven-inch infotainment system with The Walking Dead splash screen and a special “Zombie Survival Kit.”
Otherwise the Tuscon remains unchanged with a 2.4L four-banger good for 182hp and 177 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic with optional all-wheel drive.
Check out the press release after the jump.
