February 4, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The car is tested in harsh winter conditions. Most likely, the premiere will take place this year.

Korean auto giant Hyundai is gearing up for the debut of its first Santa Cruz pickup truck. The prototype was shown last year, and today the first photos of the car on the roads appeared on the Web. The car was able to photograph from different angles and even for a large layer of camouflage, you can consider some details. In the front part of the car, attention is drawn to the branded massive Hyundai radiator grille, as well as the high-beam lamps, which are made in a round design and contrast sharply with narrow running lights. The body lines are made in the style of Hyundai Santa Fe. Visually, the pickup looks more than the concept car, which was first shown in 2015.

They plan to start assembling cars next year in Alabama – the Santa Fe crossover is also being assembled there. This indirectly confirms their common platform.

┬áIf the information is confirmed, then the Hyundai Santa Cruz can get two engines to choose from – a 2.4-liter with a return of 185 hp. and a 2.0-liter turbo engine with 238 hp Another curious fact was the presence of an independent suspension, which is noticeable in spy photos. It was previously announced that the chassis will use a ladder frame, like full-size pickups.
