Hyundai Xcient makes an absolutely earth shattering 1800+ lb-ft of torque, looks awesome.

Before you get on my case about this not having anything to do with the Canadian automotive market, look at this thing. It’s freakin’ awesome.

The Hyundai Xcient, unveiled at the Seoul Motor Show, is a heavy duty truck made by the Koreans for markets other than our own. But I wish we had it. I want it. It makes me want to get a commercial driving permit and move to Korea. You could use it to shake down Korean mafia members. It’s that menacing.

The Xcient comes with two engines, both awesome. One puts out 414 hp and 1447 lb-ft of torque. That’s the base engine (which is a 10L, by the way). The more powerful engine ripples pavement with over 1800 lb-ft of gloriousness.

This is the one and only time I will be envious of Korean truck drivers. Promise.
