To survive the ever-impending zombie apocalypse, you’ll need wits, strategies and a strong intuition. You’ll also need a useful form of transportation: enter Hyundai’s Special Edition Tucson inspired by The Walking Dead. Revealed today at a special media preview at the Hotel Figueroa in conjunction with the Los Angeles Auto Show, this all-new production model Tucson will be available in limited quantity at dealerships starting early next year – just in time to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of The Walking Dead graphic novel series.

This Tucson features an Ash Black exterior with a subtle red accent graphics package and Special Edition exterior and interior badges. Roof rack cross rails provide additional room for hauling necessary survival gear while mudguards and custom floor and cargo mats help keep the vehicle clean. The vehicle will be offered only in AWD to assist drivers when off-roading away from the undead.

Within the Tucson’s black leather interior, passengers will find a custom Zombie Survival Kit – a Walking Dead 72-hour survivalist’s backpack, a necessary item for any zombie “prepper” – and a Walking Dead Tucson Quick Reference Guide, to help utilize all the features in the Special Edition vehicle. In addition, for true enthusiasts of The Walking Dead, this Tucson will offer vehicle decals for the four factions featured in the series: Hilltop, Kingdom, Saviors, and Survivors, so owners can proudly display where their allegiances lie.

The Walking Dead Special Edition Tucson is powered by the advanced 2.4-liter Theta II Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine and offers a host of valuable features, including LED taillights, dual automatic temperature control and a premium audio system with HD Radio technology. Hyundai’s Blue Link ® safety, service and infotainment telematics system is also standard on The Walking Dead Special Edition Tucson and includes three years of Assurance Connected Care as well as SOS Emergency Assistance capabilities – this feature will be particularly helpful for those trying to survive a zombie takeover. Additionally, Tucson’s third-generation navigation system includes a larger seven-inch touchscreen display with a special The Walking Dead splash screen.

“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.”
