The Walking Dead Special Edition Tucson Limited Models Reach Dealerships
Hyundai’s limited The Walking Dead Special Edition Tucson goes on sale at dealerships today. The limited-production Tucson was designed, of course, to keep drivers alive during the zombie apocalypse. It features an exclusive graphics package, badging, floor and cargo mats, and a backpack-style survival kit, just in case of zombies.
Obviously, it’s not as tricked out as these zombie-ready Hyundai models that we saw at the Chicago Auto Show (below), but it’s still pretty cool.
“Working with Hyundai to create this limited edition Tucson is a great way to continue The Walking Dead’s 10th Anniversary celebration,” said Robert Kirkman, author and creator of The Walking Dead. “I’m excited to see the streets taken over by these cars.”
The limited edition Tucson sports an Ash Black exterior, including subtle red accents. Roof rails make hauling all your survival equipment easier, and the all-wheel-drive system makes easy the inevitable off-roading as you flee hoards of zombies. A 2.4-liter Theta II Gasoline Direct Injection engine powers the Walking Dead Tucson for maximum performance.
“The Walking Dead Special Edition Tucson represents a chance for loyal fans to show their enthusiasm for the graphic novel series,” said Christine Jew, Tucson product planner. “The Tucson is versatile, responsive and fuel-efficient, allowing just enough room for those wisely-chosen passengers and supplies needed in the event of a zombie apocalypse or any survival scenario.”
