New Hyundai Santa Cruz Release Date Confirmed for 2022

We expect the new Hyundai Santa Cruz truck to make its way off Alabama's production line in 2022. A November 2020 report detailed that Hyundai confirmed they would begin offering their first-ever truck in 2021. However, it might not hit dealerships until late 2021 or early 2022.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Price

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz will start at $25,175 for the base model truck with front-wheel-drive, which is a slightly higher starting price than a new Hyundai Tucson or Santa Fe SUV ($23,700-26,275).

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Trims & Cab Configurations

Recent photos of the Hyundai Santa Cruz concept truck show a four-door setup, which means no regular cab option (2-3 people). With four doors, you may be able to fit 4-6 people. We know that the automaker always offers various options, allowing there to be a model for everyone. Given that the Hyundai Santa Cruz is expected to share platforms with the Hyundai Tucson or Santa Fe, the Santa Cruz offers similar trim levels.

We are looking forward to these trim levels.

  • SE $25,175
  • SEL │ $28,375
  • SEL Premium $36,856
  • Limited $40,554

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Exterior: Will it have an Extendable Bed?

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz comes as a Crew Cab option with four doors. It will also be available with either 18- or 20-inch wheels, plus an innovative cargo bed that extends like a drawer for additional space. In addition, it showcases a built-in slide-out tonneau cover and plenty of tie-down hooks. In total, the truck includes a 4.3-foot composite molded bed for all your cargo carrying needs.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Engines & Drivetrain: Is it 4x4?

When the Santa Cruz pickup truck is expected to start production in 2022, it will come with two engine options under the hood. The base configuration includes a 190-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder, but there's also the optional 275-horsepower 2.5-liter turbo-four. Both of these come with an eight-speed automatic, but the turbo's transmission is a dual-clutch setup. You can also add all-wheel drive with either engine option. As of now, there are no EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings, but we would expect a combined fuel economy in the 21-24 MPG range.
