Hyundai is introducing the 2022 Santa Cruz very soon In the US market. The new vehicle is part SUV and part pickup truck, which might sound confusing but it is the way the brand wants to move. It can be called both since this automobile gives you the best of both worlds. The Santa Cruz will cater to a market that loves large-sized vehicles. Hyundai will publicly release the Santa Cruz on April 15th this year.
The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz brags a bold yet ultra-modern design, potent powertrain options, state of the art connectivity and a highly adaptable all-wheel drive platform that is perfect for both urban and adventure-focused environments. The new Hyundai Santa Cruz will turnout in Montgomery, Alabama this summer among high hopes from fans.
Hyundai will invest $410 million in upgrades at its plant to make way for the Santa Cruz. The flow-on effect at suppliers and logistics companies is expected to add a further 1,000 jobs in the region. That’s a big relief after the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy.
The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz will be based on a modified version of the unibody chassis that can be found on the new Hyundai Tucson. Loaded or not, the Santa Cruz should ride more comfortably than a typical body-on frame, ridge line, live-rear-axle truck, thanks to what we expect will be a fully independent suspension.
The Hyundai Santa Cruz will possibly get a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that is good for 290 hp. The powertrain currently comes in the N-line Hyundai Sonata. However, it is expected that the Santa Cruz might be offered with more power and torque. Front-wheel drive will be standard along with an optional all-wheel-drive system.
One thought on “The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Releases Soon”
I’m surprised Ford is actually calling it a “snorkel” and referencing water fording. Toyota and Chevy are very careful to market theirs as things like “desert air intake” presumably to avoid someone driving in water up to their windshield and complaining when their electronics are fried.
