Starting with its light-duty truck called the HD36L Maxculado. This CV has been added with a stabilizer bar that increases the front-end rigidity and improves steering stability which is essential especially when carrying heavy loads. The length of the HD36L Maxculado is also increased to offer an 11-feet rear deck that allows a 1.7-ton payload capacity, which is significantly larger than another Hyundai truck, Hyundai H-100 2017 for sale, which carries over 1.3 tons.  

Powering the Hyundai HD36L Maxculado is a 2.5-liter diesel engine that delivers 128 hp at 3,800 rpm and 255 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission that is said to deliver 53 percent more torque than its previous transmission, as well as provide a smoother ride.

Two things excite him the most: first is staying up to speed with the latest news in the industry that uses engines as their heart and soul. The second is imparting them in a well-detailed manner. His passion for anything with wheels started when he was young – from Tamiyas to family-friendly sedans, and anything in between.

Someday, Rex only wishes to drive on random highways with friends in a third-gen Mitsubishi Delica with aftermarket sunroofs, if he couldn’t get the Starwagon Super Exceed edition.
