For this year, Hyundai proved themselves to be the deliverer of the most aggressive takes on creating monstrous SUVs. It was recently announced that the Korean automaker has just created yet another outlandish Hyundai Santa Fe SEMA concept boosting of an off-road feature.

SEMA is one of the most anticipated events wherein automobile companies could parade their best-upgraded units for the fans to see. Usually, Hyundai takes on an aggressive take during the event. For this year, the Korean automaker did the same aggressiveness to its Hyundai Santa Fe model.

As reported by Motor Trend, Hyundai worked with the off-road modifiers, Rockstar Garage, to create the numerous upgrades and updates to the Hyundai Santa Fe SEMA Concept vehicle.

The Upgrades

The technical specs of the vehicle remained true to stock. However, many modifications to those were implemented. First off, the 3.3-liter V-6 engine has improved air intake, increased Mishimoto cooling system, and a custom exhaust. The most substantial change in the vehicle is an addition of a new nitrous system that boosted up the vehicle's speed capacity.

In other news, Auto Blog reported that the Rockstar Performance Garage also recorded the Hyundai Santa Fe SEMA concept vehicle to generate 1,040 horsepower. With an all-new drive feature, the monstrous SUV has deemed itself to be a high-class performing off-road vehicle.

Additionally, it also has Big R1 six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes along with King coil on its front and shocks on its rear. The suspension has also been customized like its tie-rods and its control arms.

On top of which, Rockstar also placed a 17-inch KMC XD 301 turbine to the bead-lock wheels of the Hyundai Santa Fe SEMA Concept which is embodied around a Mickey Thompson Baja Claw 35-inch off-road tires. Its exhaust is with Magnaflow exhaust, has personalized bumpers and rock sliders.

Behold: the brand new and more masculine Hyundai Santa Fe SEMA Concept SUV with off-road capabilities.
