Seems the Americans can’t get enough of Hyundai’s new Tucson, with another undergoing a radical transformation for the upcoming SEMA show.

Alongside the 500kW Bisimoto Tucson announced last month, the latest Tucson project is a partnership between Hyundai and Rockstar Performance Garage (RPG) which focuses on maximum off-road ability.

Fans of SUVs who wish some of the ‘soft-roaders’ were a little more hard-core will rejoice when they learn the RCG Tucson sits a full 150mm higher than the regular model.

The suspension has been completely overhauled to handle off-road duties, including adjustable shocks, and the Tucson now wears massive 32-inch Mickey Thompson tyres.

There’s more muscle under the bonnet as well, with a new high-flow exhaust, performance air intake, a new intercooler and more boosting the output of Hyundai’s 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine (to an undisclosed horsepower figure).

Drive reaches the road through all four wheels via a six-speed DCT automatic.

Outside, the RCG Tucson gets smoked rear tail lights, a custom LED light bar setup and custom off-road bumpers “to help the vehicle shrug off impacts”.

Inside, features include an upgraded audio system with 10-inch subwoofer, high output speakers and window tint.

“The focus behind this build was to create an off-roader that nobody expected,” RCG’s Nic Ashby said.

“The Tucson was a great starting platform with its rigid frame and plenty of room in the engine bay for modifications. With the complete suspension overhaul and blacked-out appearance, this Tucson is guaranteed to be a head turner in line with the Rockstar lifestyle.”

The RCG Tucson exists only as a teaser image at present (top of page), but the covers come off the real thing in November.
