The debut of the first serial pickup of the Hyundai brand under the name Santa Cruz should take place very soon, but for now the manufacturer continues road tests of the future novelty.
On the eve of the pickup again hit the lens of spy cameras: these pictures were taken in the United States, they were posted on the YouTube channel 80% Garage. The car is still camouflaged, but the stained film is gone. Apparently, all the parts of the prototype are already serial, which means that the premiere is not far off.
The new Santa Cruz will be built on the new generation Tucson platform. Dimensions are still unknown. The new Tucson, by the way, has two lengths and wheelbases.
According to unofficial data, the pickup will be equipped with atmospheric and turbocharged “fours”. Also, buyers will be offered a hybrid version of the pickup. Most likely, the novelty will have both versions with a drive on one axle and an all-wheel drive modification.
Prices for Santa Cruz have not yet been announced. The main competitors of the new items in the US market will be Toyota Tacoma and Ford Ranger.
