2020 Hyundai Santa Cruz comes from the Korean factory as one of the most attractive changes in compact pickup truck class. As the matter of fact, this class is innovative and fresh itself, so every possible model that comes from it is unique and attractive. When it comes to the Santa Cruz, it should be one of those useful and practical pickup trucks that could be easily driven in daily city driving. Although the first version was shown in the International Los Angeles Auto Show in 2015, fans could be forced to wait a year more before the final version is on the market.
2020 Hyundai Santa Cruz is everything but an ordinary pickup truck. As we said, it represents the special class of the modern pickups for those who love to fulfill both needs when the vehicle is about. The manufacturer does not hide that Santa Cruz should compete with Honda Ridgeline, but similarities can be found with models like Ford F-150 and Ram 1500, too.
The manufacturer has not said much about the cabin of the 2020 Hyundai Santa Cruz, so we cannot describe it yet. We are sure that they will use the best in technology to fulfill buyers’ expectations, but we do not know much more than that.
There are rumors that 2020 Hyundai Santa Cruz could have a diesel engine. It could be 2.0-liter four-cylinder one with 190 horsepower of strength and 300 pound-feet of torque. This engine is actually not that much strong or competitive as the manufacturer probably wants, so there are rumors that it could be only one option in a wide range of the engines that could come from this factory. A possibly hybrid model is also on the list, as well as the classic petrol unit. Expectations from experts are that Korean manufacturer will do all they can to use green taxes relief.
2020 Hyundai Santa Cruz Release Date and Price
The manufacturer has not shared the release date for the 2020 Hyundai Santa Cruz, promising that it will be as soon as possible. It is the most likely that we will see it as a 2020 model. However, the price of the car is impossible to predict. Manufacturer’s goals to be competitive in the class could affect the price, so it could be even lower than $20,000. We all know that similar models, like Nissan Frontier, cost around $18,000. On the other hand, all equipment and changes in the engine show that we could expect the price even higher than $30,000 especially if the hybrid engine rolls with the new model. Time will say, like always.
