Those who fear the zombie apocalypse will take solace in the fact that Hyundai has just released The Walking Dead Special Edition Tuscon, ready to take on the undead. Built in partnership with Walking Dead comic publisher Skybound, the limited edition Tuscon is now available at Hyundai dealers.
The Walking Dead's viewership has hit the world like a zombie outbreak, quickly spreading to just about every part of the globe. As anyone who has ever seen the show knows, the best vehicles to use in zombie-ruled America is a Hyundai Tuscon.
Each Hyundai Tuscon Walking Dead Edition will be painted in black, with red side graphics paying homage to the ever popular zombie genre. Not only that, the cars will come equipped with the ideal zombie hunting features needed for survival.
A 2.4 liter, direct injected engine provides reliable power to Hyundai's all-wheel drive system, which will come in handy when tackling the difficult terrain of post-apocalyptic, zombie infested countryside. Mudguards will keep the bodywork in prime condition, and unique Walking Dead designed floor mats will protect the luxurious leather interior. Roof racks will hold all the provisions necessary for long term solitary survival - if such a scenario should occur.
It has been a decade since the first Walking Dead comic was released, and those familiar with the series will already know of the four groups: Hilltop, Kingdom, Saviors, and Survivors. Those who buy the Walking Dead Tuscon will get to select which group they want to represent, and an accompanying decal will be added to the gas filler cap.
"Working with Hyundai to create this limited edition Tuscon is a great way to continue The Walking Dead's 10th Anniversary celebration," said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. "I'm excited to see the streets taken over by these cars."
Inside the Tuscon is a Zombie Survival Kit backpack, which holds all the tools required for life as a survivalist. Also included is Hyundai's Blue Link safety system, though it would be wise to use it only for actual emergencies.
"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."
The Hyundai Tuscon Walking Dead Special Edition will be sold in limited numbers, so act quick; in time their availability will dwindle as people rush to get their zombie fix.
