2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz
Hyundai is making history with its first-ever truck in 2022! The brand new Santa Cruz is a four-door compact pickup with everything a truck needs while providing the same dependability as every Hyundai vehicle. This new truck combines the greatest parts of an SUV with the dependability of a truck, easily competing with the top-sellers in both segments! Here are some key aspects of the new Hyundai Santa Cruz that make it stand out from the rest.
Hyundai’s Sporty Performance
Hyundai’s new pickup truck has a sporty performance with its two engine options that both come in FWD and AWD! You can with the standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 191 hp and 181lb-ft of torque, or you can go turbo! Giving off a powerful 281 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque, the 2.5 L turbo engine is perfect for those who want an extra performance boost!
The 2022 Santa Cruz’s performance has much more to offer with its HTRAC all-wheel-drive system. This mode pushes torque to the front and rear axles, which comes in handy when powering through muddy areas around Louisiana! You can revert to “sport” mode whenever you are not off-road and enjoy driving around your regular routes.
For truck lovers everywhere, towing capacity is essential; luckily, the Santa Cruz pickup delivers! The base 2.5 L engine has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. for AWD and FWD. The turbo engine can tow up to 3,500 lbs. in the FWD configuration, but the AWD option has a max towing capacity of 5,000 lbs., which is the best choice if you have heavy equipment and jobs.
