The first model of Santa Fe from Hyundai Motor Co. had debuted at the North American International Auto Show held at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan in 2010.
Now the company is going to roll out a customized version of the Santa Fe with an engine that can generate a massive 1,040 Horsepower. This customized Santa Fe has been assembled with many components that have been taken from the models like the Hyundai Genesis R-Spec, Lambda V6, and the Hyundai Equus, whose engines generated an output of a whopping 1,040 horsepower. According to Bisimoto personnel, the upcoming upgrades have been claimed to be the best ones ever yet for the model.
The upgraded Santa Fe might be unveiled at the SEMA show which will be held in Las Vegas, but the Japanese automaker seems to be revealing all the details about the upgraded potential of its customized Hyundai Santa Fe SUV.
The Upcoming Upgrades to the Engine
According to a Truck Yeah report, to create this monster tuner Bisimoto has incorporated the Lambda V6 engine with 3.8-liter capacity, into the Santa Fe model. All thanks to the twin-turbo kit running the Turbonetics TNX 30/56 Turbos, the vehicle will now garner a boost of almost 39 pounds.
Moreover, the driveline of the automobile is customized with an RWD whose component has been derived from the rear differential of the Hyundai Equus. The vehicle runs on a power generated from the Hyundai Genesis R-Spec with a six-speed manual transmission. With this, the airflow into the automobile is supported by the 2200CC injectors. According to the Bisimoto personnel, these updates of the Hyundai Santa Fe V6 model generated an engine power of 290 hp. However, according to another news report from Auto Blog claimed that the 290 horsepower is the engine’s stock capacity, whereas it is actually capable of generating 1,040 horsepower capacity. This is the most impressive feature of the Hyundai Santa Fe V6 model which is to be showcased at the SEMA 2016 show in Las Vegas.
The interiors have been designed to seat 6 or 7 people, with three rows of seats. However, in the course of updating the Santa Fe for the 2017 model, Hyundai has made the crossover of the vehicle a numbers game. The upgraded Santa Fe offers the expanded choice of a two- or a four-wheeler drive, seating configurations of 6 or 7 seats, and a distinct 4 trim levels. Last year the Santa Fe came with just 2 trim levels, one of it having 6 seats and the other 7 seats. The steady SUV has been enhanced with fresh styling to accommodate more onboard technology that includes Blue Link connectivity, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
While the acceleration is exceptionally brisk, the shifts are extremely smooth and unpretentious. The Santa Fe comes with the standard front-wheel drive, whereas the all-wheel drive is optionally available. The other optional features are the audio system with 12 speakers, a liftgate which is hands-free, LED fog lights, LED tail lights, steering wheel wrapped in leather, leather seats, auto-brake with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, multiview parking camera, LCD screen, heated front seats and a lot more to the list.
In addition to the earlier Santa Fe SE and the Limited trims, the latest 2017 models will also include the new SE Ultimate and the Limited Ultimate specs. Actually, the new higher variants of the Ultimate versions of the Limited and SE models come with all the standard features which are also offered in the Ultimate option package.
