2019 Hyundai Santa Cruz. Some sources claim that the Hyundai truck will join the group in Hyundai Santa Cruz in 2019. It is also expected that Hyundai will go with a mono-body design such as the Honda Ridgiline well received. It is also reported that this model uses Tucson Crossover as a base. We’ve been waiting for Hyundai’s first truck for several years, and it looks like it will eventually come at a time when it will be 2019 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup. The small truck market lives again. Only in the last few years has the sales of these cars been raised to the point that many of the big automakers are considering a car of this type in their own lineup. There are famous models such as Colorado and Ranger, which return to the North American market after several years, in addition to many other models. Given that more than half of the cars sold in North America pass trucks, Hyundai was expected to move.
This will be something entirely new from the Korean giant. For the first time, this small truck manufacturer will offer. The company’s management finally realized the tremendous potential of this type of vehicle. So, after a few years of development, the new model is finally ready for launch. According to the latest reports, a new pickup truck is ready for launch, which should occur in the second half of the year. This new model will have a lot to offer. Unlike most trucks, it will not ride on a conventional truck platform. The same unibody structure will be used as Tucson. Although the design solution is unusual, this is not something completely new. We have already seen this design in the famous Honda Ridgeline, which is currently in the second generation.
However, Hyundai will get some new things to offer. The Pickup 2019 Hyundai Santa Cruz will be a small truck that will provide the perfect balance between comfort and facilities. As we mentioned, this model will not include a chassis platform on the chassis, but a modern monolithic structure. This means that a new truck from Korea will be a direct competitor to the excellent Honda Ridgeline. The new model will be based on the Tucson Cross. Means the same mechanisms, in addition to the design language. Speaking of body style, we are sure that some kind of dual cab configuration will come. Two rows of seats, four doors – this is the shortest description of the new 2019 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck. The general idea is to provide a very diverse pickup. Such as the car will provide comfort and much better driving features, compared to the classic truck. On the other hand, we expect slightly lower performance when it comes to utilities.
When it comes to power units, it is still uncertain what the Hyundai Santa Cruz model will be for the year 2019 under the hood. Hyundai presented the concept version with a 2.0-liter diesel engine. This unit is rated at 190 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, Hyundai has introduced a new SUV sedan with a new turbo-diesel engine. The three-row SUV uses this 2.2-liter turbo-diesel engine, which is proportional to the number of dowries of the concept, but has boosted torque to 322 lb. of torque. The engine works in combination with the eight-speed transmission and can be easily modified with the truck version. The Hyundai Santa Cruz truck can also use the naturally aspirated 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine from a Hyundai part-bin. The 2.0-liter turbocharged 240-horsepower engine is also a potential option. Hyundai will offer options for four-wheel drive and four-wheel drive options, and we hope to focus on off-road.
The price should take between $20,000 and $30,000. There is no confirmation of the launch date of the 2019 Hyundai Santa Cruz. The model is expected by the end of this year.
