John Pangilinan, the renowned Southern California tuner, 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 “Adventuremobile” obvious addition is 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.
The car will be revealed at Hyundai’s SEMA press conference on November 3 at 11:30 a.m. PT, in Las Vegas.
