2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz – Road Test

We’ve seen pictures of the Santa Cruz for years now and finally it’s arrived. Oddly enough, Ford also released the Maverick around the same time so we’ve now got two variations of the same theme: a Unibody pickup truck that is not a real truck, but is a truck in looks and utility. The Santa Cruz is Hyundai’s first pickup truck in North America and can I say…it’s long overdue. Having owned a Ranger for the past 10+ years I can honestly say I don’t know how I ever lived without a pickup truck., Iain Shankland, That’s A Wrap!

It’s HERE…It’s Finally Here!!! – The All-New 2022 Santa Cruz

Hyundai revealed the All-New 2022 Santa Cruz on Thursday, and it’s going on sale this summer. After first seeing it 6 years ago, it’s now actually going to be available, but excitement quickly turned to disappointment as it’s based on the All-New Tucson and not the larger Santa Fe as we were expecting, so it’s much smaller and a lot less useful.
