Hyundai Santa Cruz exterior for Rebelle Rally | This truck has a yet another uplift modification and a total of 8.6 inches of ground clearance to begin with. This additional space has allowed Hyundai to mount 29.5-inch Falken Wildpeak All-Terrain Trail tires on 17-inch Gear Offroad wheels. A skid plate under the body to protect sensitive parts while riding trails is the only other significant modification to the otherwise standard Santa Cruz.
Hyundai is building Santa Cruz for rebelle rally
The Santa Cruz that will compete in this year’s Rebelle Rally with team Brute Squad has recently been unveiled by Hyundai. The customized pickup truck has special equipment and decorations made especially for the all-women event. Here is a brief overview of the foes Jill Ciminillo and Kristin Shaw will face off against on October 6.
The seventh annual Rebelle Rally took place this year. Each two-woman team will travel 1,553 miles (2,500 km) over the course of the eight-day race using just a map and compass to navigate through the Nevada and Californian desert. GPS units and cell phones are not permitted. Hyundai’s engineer Eric Bruxton was brought in to address the situation and make helpful adjustments to the Santa Cruz.
