Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck again spotted on tests

Today, new photos have been published on the Web that confirm that the pickup is in the preliminary testing phase, since the taillights are not serial.

According to the head of the Hyundai Global Design Center in Namyang, South Korea, the production model will have an updated design. As Sang Jupe Lee explained, the upcoming pickup will be “much more distinctive” and will have a “much more individual character” than a well-accepted concept car. The design of the new items can also be judged by spy shots – the pickup is secretly tested at the Hyundai test site in California, near Los Angeles.

In addition, Hyundai Motor and its subsidiaries are in the process of updating the supply of the Alabama plant, as the company decided to produce the next-generation Tucson (code-named NX4) in early 2020, and the launch of the derivative pickup is scheduled for late 2020.

According to reports, Hyundai Santa Cruz will be equipped with a hybrid power plant, which is based on a 2.5-liter engine. Its target market will be the “new generation of customers.”

As for how the pickup will look, this remains to be seen, but Hyundai used the Santa Cruz concept photos for its pre-production release, which would make it believe that the upcoming truck would be much like its prototype.
