Hyundai delighted its fans by announcing plans to release the first production pickup. The novelty was named "Santa Cruz". Its official presentation will take place, according to preliminary data, in the near future this year. The Hyundai team is preparing responsibly for the relevant event, which can be argued, given that its brainchild has already been released on the road for testing. A pickup truck was spotted on the road in the United States. Here, as one would expect, he was captured by spy cameras. The pictures taken by them immediately hit the network. The first to publish them was the YouTube channel "80% Garage".
In the photo, as you can see, the car is camouflaged, but for camouflage it was covered with a single-color film (and not spotty, as is usually done). A closer look at the "straight from the tin" pickup, it is not difficult to guess that all its structural elements are already serial, approved. This is another reason to say that the official premiere of the car is on the nose.
Little is known about the long-awaited Santa Cruz. To create it, the Tucson platform, a representative of the new generation, was taken as a basis. The exact dimensions of the model remain classified, but it can be assumed that the car will enter the market in two wheelbase and length options (like the same new Tucson). As for the heart of Santa Cruz, there were no surprises here. The car was equipped with turbocharged and atmospheric "fours". A hybrid modification will also be available to fans of the Hyundai brand. If we talk about the drive, then, according to experts, two variations of the serial pickup should be expected from the automaker - an all-wheel drive model, as well as a copy with a single-axle drive.
It is not known what the price tag will be on the Santa Cruz, but it can be assumed that the cost of such a car will be on a par with the cost of the Toyota Tacoma, as well as the Ford Ranger.
