What will be the Hyundai Santa Cruz – the first pickup in the history of the brand?

Independent designers created a render that shows how the first truck in the history of the South Korean brand Hyundai could become. The debut of new items can be expected this year.

Hyundai pickup news has been around since the Korean brand introduced the Santa Cruz concept back in 2015. Since then, there have been several reports on the further development of new items. Now it has become known for certain that the Santa Cruz concept pickup truck will definitely receive its serial receiver. Some time ago, our publication published the spy images from tests of a South Korean truck, which took place in Northern Europe.

Earlier we saw strongly disguised prototypes of Santa Cruz, but now, thanks to the designers from the KKS Studio team, you and I have the opportunity to look at what the first pickup in the history of the automaker could become.

Hyundai said earlier that Santa Cruz will abandon its futuristic design, which was in its conceptual version. It is not surprising that this render received a large false radiator grille from the Santa Fe crossover, because it is rumored that the new Santa Cruz is based on the latter. Of course, there are changes in the design of the grille – LED high beam lamps are now part of the grille.

 Pickup Santa Cruz will be available exclusively in the US market and will have a solid body structure. Its production will be launched at the Hyundai plant in Alabama (USA), which suggests that customers will be able to shave from a 2.4-liter engine with 185 horsepower and a turbocharged 2.0-liter analogue with 238 hp.

 At the time of this writing, the date of the pickup presentation has not yet been announced, but given the fact that the production of the new product will begin next year, we can expect its Hyundai Santa Cruz debut to take place this year.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the interior of the new Hyundai Tucson hit the climate control unit. TheKoreanCarBlog portal on Sunday, May 3, distributed a photo of the interior of the new Hyundai Tucson.
