Hyundai Releases Teaser Images of ’22 Santa Cruz

Hyundai calls its long-awaited compact pickup, the Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle, “a new category of vehicle unlike anything else in the U.S. market.”


Beyond four teaser sketches, Hyundai isn’t releasing details or dimensions of its first pickup, the 2022 Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle, but the automaker promises the Santa Cruz will have powerful and efficient powertrain options, a flexible open bed for gear, cutting-edge connectivity and a highly maneuverable all-wheel-drive platform.

“Open-bed flexibility coupled with closed-cabin security meets the changing everyday needs of its adventure-oriented buyers, while powerful and efficient engines and superb maneuverability ensure it is a pleasure to drive in urban or off-road environments,” says Jose Munoz, president and CEO-Hyundai Motor North America.

The Santa Cruz will make its digital premiere on April 15, and production launches this summer at Hyundai’s Montgomery, AL, plant.
