Hyundai Santa Cruz Ute Confirmed

Hyundai Santa Cruz Ute ConfirmedApproval for the SUV-based ute, first shown as a concept at last year’s Detroit Auto Show, isn’t the problem according to Zuchowski – the announcement from Hyundai’s Korean head office is the final formality.

Beyond that the reach of the Santa Cruz is yet to be established, and a right hand drive version isn’t a certainty, meaning the Santa Cruz may only be offered as a North American offering.

Zuchowski said that Hyundai is waiting for an announcement rather than approval. That indicates the truck is green lit and the next step will be the announcement of when production will begin. Serious truck fans might scoff at the Hyundai, it lacks the body on frame design that the heavier duty trucks from other makers offer.

The concept was presented with a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine that delivers 190 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque, however a US-bound production package will presumably be offered with a gasoline engine.

“Pickup trucks are 80 percent male buyers. It seems silly, doesn’t it, because men and women have the same needs. You want to go pick up a piece of furniture, Home Depot, etc, it’s not just men that do that. Women generally find maneuvering pickups too much, too hard to see out the sides, the back, and so women tend to avoid them.”
