New Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck again seen on tests

New Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck again seen on tests

June 18, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A fresh batch of spy photos allows you to take a fresh look at the Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup – the model received slightly less camouflage than before.

The new Santa Cruz received a large grille with massive horizontal bars connecting narrower racks, and in its center is a huge Hyundai logo. At the edges below are divided headlights that resemble the optics of the Palisade and the new Santa fe. There is a trapezoidal grille at the bottom of the bumper.

In the profile, you can see how the back line of the window rises, which does not allow the model to look too square. In this case, the cargo compartment seems quite compact. Unfortunately, camouflage film prevents us from viewing the back well.

The Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup is expected to receive a 3.8-liter V6 from Palisades, which produces 291 hp. power. Most likely, all the torque will be transmitted to four wheels.

It is worth noting that the instance seen on the tests towed a trailer. This suggests that the engineers made sure that the truck could carry heavy loads. It is unlikely that its towing ability will be comparable to the Ford F-450, but the Hyundai truck should have enough abilities to work with less weight.

In 2021, Hyundai will begin assembling Santa Cruz in Montgomery, Alabama, where Santa Fe, Sonata, and Elantra also assemble. The debut of new items should take place before the end of the year.
