According to the latest reports, Santa Cruz pickup truck is about to return to the markets. The concept is relatively fresh and now new details are available. First of all, Korean automaker said the 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz won’t look like the concept. It makes sense, the truck market is changing really fast. On top of that, the concept was presented four years ago.
Whatsoever, new Santa Cruz will sport the same styling as the company’s Palisade SUV. We can expect a room for five passengers and modern interior design. The exterior will look very attractive with clean styling and subtle approach. Under the hood, we can expect numerous options and even the diesel variant.
2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz To Come With Numerous Trim Levels
The upcoming 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz will arrive with a fresh look and the newest company’s design language. The new model will come with almost the same styling as the Hyundai Palisade SUV. On top of that, Santa Cruz will share the underpinnings with the next-generation Tucson crossover. Hyundai said that the all-new model won’t look like the concept.
That means you can forget the boxy shape. South Korean automotive giant will opt for an angular approach with sportier styling. Exterior will look clean and will hold a crossover-like cue. Also, Santa Cruz will probably arrive as a two and four-door model. Numerous trim levels and body configurations will surely help the pickup to make a breakthrough.
Plenty Of Stuff Will Be Borrowed From The New Tucson Model
Even the interior will depart from the concept. The 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz will hold an SUV-like cabin which includes both design and layout. We can expect plenty of stuff to be borrowed from the new Tucson crossover. That includes the dash and the control layout. Also, expect larger storage bins and an all-new infotainment display.
The cabin will look modern and stylish. Wood trims and even the ambient lighting will be in the offer. Santa Cruz will offer a room for five passengers. Most of the interior is still a mystery. However, we are sure that the range-topping trim will look very premium and comfortable.
Even if the 2020 model arrives on time, it won’t feature a diesel engine. However, the 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz surely will. Hyundai plans to offer its new pickup truck globally. The diesel engine is a must, especially for North America. Knowing that a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine will be optional. Diesel powertrain will crank out 195 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque. \
The standard engine is a 3.3-liter V6 that is borrowed from the Santa Fe model. The V6 unit delivers 295 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. It comes with 8-speed automatic transmission. Towing capacity and fuel economy numbers are yet to be announced. We expect at least average figures for this segment.
2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz Price and Release Date
The pickup truck will arrive at some point in 2020. Probably in the first half. As we already wrote, South Korean automaker said the production model will largely depart from the concept. That means the all-new 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz still comes with a certain level of mystery. On the other hand, the price is not so mysterious. The brand-new pickup truck will start at $30,000.
