Offering Open-Bed Versatility and the Utility of a Closed Cabin: the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

Dubbed a “sport adventure vehicle” by the Hyundai brand, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz resembles an SUV that has the bed of a truck attached to it. That duality gives this pickup a truly unique look that distinguishes the vehicle from competing models.

The all-new Hyundai Santa Cruz has a base MSRP of $23,990, making it an affordable choice for anyone who wants the versatility of a truck and the security offered by a closed cabin.

A Look at the Truck’s Bed

Local motorists shouldn’t wonder, “Is there a Hyundai dealer near me who’ll tell me all about the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz?” because our team is standing by to spill the beans about the pickup, and we’ll start with the truck’s rear. The carmaker we represent built a lot of versatility into the pickup’s bed.

More specifically, the bed features lockable cubies in its walls. It also has tie-down cleats, a 120-volt outlet, and convenient LED lighting.

If you’re an outdoor person, you’ll love the drainable, waterproof compartment that’s built into the floor. Do you transport awkward items regularly? You’ll appreciate that you can lock the tailgate in a halfway position that provides support for supplies like sheets of plywood.

Engine Options

When you contact or visit Kearny Mesa Hyundai, we’ll explain that the Hyundai Santa Cruz is available with two engines. The engine in the base SE and SEL trims is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit that produces 191 horsepower 181 lb-ft of torque.

An eight-speed automatic transmission is matched with this engine. Vehicles with this engine are offered with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Trucks powered by the 2.5-liter upgraded engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds with the right equipment. Pickups with the turbodiesel engine and the proper equipment can tow as much as 3,500 pounds.
