Release Date: Sometime in 2020
In 2015, Hyundai arrived at the Detroit Auto Show with a crossover-based light pickup concept called the Santa Cruz. This summer, Hyundai announced that the Santa Cruz has been green-lit for production and will join the brand’s Stateside lineup for the 2020 model year. The production Santa Cruz will be based on the Santa Fe crossover, but Hyundai hasn’t shared any powertrain options. The concept featured a 2.0-liter turbodiesel, but that will almost certainly change (unless Hyundai also plans to use a turbodiesel in the new crossover models on the previous slide). We’ll be on the lookout for more details.
