hyundai has finally unveiled its very first truck  and we are so happy to report that it came out   beautifully hyundai once again did a great job  in delivering an outstanding production car when   some people may have written it off seeing some  pre-production photos boy are we ever surprised   how nice this truck is hyundai santa cruz is based  on the popular crossover hyundai tucson and will   share many attributes with a compact suv first  since it's based on a crossover platform it will   be a unibody truck instead of being a traditional  body on frame truck although unibody underpins   most of the modern vehicles with its weight  to strength ratio and its versatility it's not   the preferred choice for heavy-duty trucks that  have to endure heavy loads and rough usage on or   off-road this limitation imposed by its inherent  design coupled with a smallish truck bed is the   reason why hyundai does not call the new santa  cruz a truck but rather a sports adventure vehicle   analogous to its suv route the tucson routes are  very evident in its styling first of all santa   cruz shares the same sensuous sportiness design  identity of tucson represented by sharp body lines   and creases incorporating parametric dynamics  themed headlamp that disappears when turned off   the result is a strikingly good-looking vehicle  but it looks more like a tucson with a truck bed   instead of looking like the original santa cruz  concept from 2015 that stole the hearts of the   general public which eventually led to the  management's decision to produce the truck   even the interior seems like it's taken right out  of tucson featuring a futuristic flowing design   and the same pair of 10.25 inch lcd screens  used for both the drivers information cluster   and the infotainment hyundai did add  the traditional level shifter instead of   tucson's button shifter to give it that  old-school feeling but that's about it   it's pretty much all tucson inside except  the cramped rear passenger space but that's   understandable due to the fact that the  compact body also has to house a truck bed   at least the rear seats fold away to create more  loading space when needed which is another great   truck feature true to its truck nature the bed  seems durable and offers many conveniences but   as expected not quite big enough tries they may  hyundai will not be able to stop the public from   comparing santa cruz to other unibody truck  competitors such as honda ridgeline and the   upcoming ford maverick compact truck for this  hyundai has some tricks up its sleeve just in case   for example the width of the santa cruz is as wide  as the midsize hyundai santa fe suv to allow for a   wider truck bed also in addition to the naturally  aspirated 2.5 liter gasoline engine with 190   horsepower and 182 pounds foot of torque mated to  an 8-speed automatic transmission lifted from the   platform sharing tucson hyundai will bestow  upon the compact sav a generous gift of 2.5   liter turbocharged engine rated at 275 horsepower  and 310-pound foot of torque mated to 8-speed dct   this power plant will make santa cruz a  class-leading vehicle in terms of brawnyness santa   cruz will be as powerful if not more as mid-sized  truck honda ridgeline with 280 horsepower 3.5   liter v6 that makes 262 pounds foot of torque  as well as ford maverick compact truck with   181 horsepower 1.5 liter gasoline engine or 245  horsepower 2.0 liter engine when equipped with the  

turbo engine and all-wheel drive the compact santa  cruz is capable of towing up to an impressive 5000   pound which matches honda ridgelines furthermore  there could be a possibility that hyundai may   even offer hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines from  tucson at a later date which would be a fantastic   competitive advantage and a selling feature  for the people looking for an electrified truck   also a pure electric version seems appropriate  given the timing check out our feature on santa   cruz to find out more by clicking the link above  specialty niche market vehicles such as santa cruz   never did well in terms of sale in the past as  it was the case for suv turned trucks like subaru   baja chevy avalanche and ford explorer sport track  but could hyundai pull it off now with its first   pseudo truck designed in california and built-in  hyundai's montgomery alabama plant hyundai santa   cruz will go on sale starting the summer of 2021  at the estimated price of 25 000
