Mike Miller Hyundai Introduces the All-New 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz
If you were surprised to see the Hyundai brand introduce a truck, just wait until you actually see the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz in person. In a world where pickups just keep getting more and more ungainly, this truck is compact and capable, while also offering the kind of reliability and strong features that have long been key strengths for new Hyundai models.
2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Design
If you’ve ever lamented the difficulty parking a full-size pickup, or wanted a bit more agility, you’ll love the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz. Because it’s built using unibody construction — and even shares its platform with the new Hyundai Tucson — it’s strong, light, easy to park, and surprisingly fun to drive.
2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Performance
The powertrains play their part in that driving enjoyment. The base engine is good for 191 horsepower, while the turbocharged upgrade engine raises output to 281 horsepower. The new Hyundai Santa Cruz can tow up to 3,500 pounds when outfitted with the smaller engine, or up to 5,000 pounds with the upgrade engine.
Front-wheel drive is standard in the SE, SEL, and SEL Activity trims, with the Limited trim offering all-wheel drive; it’s an option on the other models.
2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Capabilities
The 4.8-foot bed comes with a retractable tonneau cover (optional on the SE). While small, its integrated cleats and tie-downs, not to mention its 1,748-pound payload capacity, ensure it’s practical. The integrated storage, which has a drain plug so you can use it as a cooler, proves to be both fun and useful.
2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Interior
The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz has a comfortable interior that seats five. You’ll find an eight-inch infotainment display, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™. among the standard equipment, and the team at our Peoria Hyundai dealership will guide you through customization options, such as:
