2015 SEMA Preview: Hyundai teases new outdoorsy Tucson Adventuremobile

Hyundai teased a new addition to the list of Tucson concepts they’re prepping to reveal at this year’s 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas, on November 3rd.

Meet the new Tucson Adventuremobile and as indicated with its name, it’s geared towards the adventurous outdoorsy type.

How so? Well, it features a range of upgrades such as a 1.5-inch lift kit, an Aries bull bar, side steps, a roof-mounted LED light bar, heavy duty Rayx Gram Lights 57DR wheels, and complementing Toyo Open Country A/T II tires.

It also features a folding Treeline Tamarack roof-top tent with Goal Zero solar panels to make sure you’re not left without electricity when camping out.

The inside also gets some upgrades such as Katzkin leather seats, new interior colors to match the exterior, and a custom sound system by BP Auto Sound.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 19, 2015 – John Pangilinan, the renowned Southern California tuner known for creating vehicles that blur the lines between lifestyle and automotive, has released details on his 2016 Tucson SEMA build. Dubbed the “Adventuremobile,” the vehicle blends Hyundai’s new crossover platform with a passion for the great outdoors, perfect for the weekend getaway. The car will be revealed at Hyundai’s SEMA press conference on November 3 at 11:30 a.m. PT, in Las Vegas.

The “Adventuremobile” is just as home on the daily commute as it is lugging gear up into the mountains for the weekend out of town. Most obvious is the addition of a Treeline Tamarack roof-top tent, with ample room to sleep two campers, and Goal Zero solar panels to power all of their accessories. The exterior has been beefed up with the addition of an Aries bull bar and side steps, Rigid Industries LED lights, and the vehicle has been finished in a BASF army green paint scheme by Strasse Sport. A custom 1.5-in. suspension lift provides greater ground clearance, and Toyo Open Country A/T II tires with RAYS Gram Lights 57DR wheels provide the extra grip needed for the occasional off-road excursion.

Giving the Tucson a power boost, AEM provided an upgraded intake and charge pipe kit, and the engine breathes more freely through a Magnaflow exhaust system.

“Designed with the weekend adventurer in mind, the Tucson was the perfect platform for an ‘Adventuremobile,’” said John Pangilinan. “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.”
