litre Diesel V6
The rather controvertial styling of the Hyundai HCD10
Hellion concept was inspired by hardshell backpacks which
use ribs to provide strength. As a rather practical move
for a concept, Hyundai have not only given the HCD10 Hellion
the apearance of ribs, the concept actually features three
lightweight ribs to form a safety cage around the occupants.
The Hyundai HCD10 Hellion has been designed with minimal
front and rear overhangs to allow for excellent approach
and departure angles while offroading.
The front end of the HCD10 Hellion is characterised by
a design study which explores how organic forms could
feature on future Hyundai trucks. The prominent central
hood scoop is designed to enhance the Hellion's rally
car demeanor while the clamshell hood features exposed
latches for easy access to the engine bay.
The removable fabric roof of the HCD10 Hellion concept
features a subtle grey camouflage pattern, but on a production
version the pattern would be customisable by the buyer.
Power for the HCD10 Hellion concept comes from a 3.0 litre
V6 Common-rail diesel engine producing 236 horsepower
and 332 lb-ft of torque mated to a 6 speed manual transmission
driving all four wheels.
