The 2024 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck spy shots are available, and it seems that the new truck will share many cues with the Hyundai Tucson. Its opponents include the Ford Ranger and the Chevrolet Colorado, but the Santa Cruz outperforms them all because of its unibody construction. The Honda Ridgeline pickup truck, in case you didn’t know, also features the same unibody chassis.
In its second year on the market, we don’t anticipate any changes to the Santa Cruz. When it comes to performance, we anticipate it will share the same base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine as the current Santa Cruz, which generates 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. A 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque is also an option.
The All-New Hyundai Santa Cruz for 2024
The new 2024 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup has been seen undergoing testing while disguised. Recent spy images reveal a new grille design and a different rear end compared to earlier renders. The spotted Santa Cruz, like the Tucson SUV, has a large, prominent grille.
The split headlights are reminiscent of those on the Hyundai Santa Fe and are positioned low on the car. In general, the design has changed a lot since the first draft, and we expect more changes before the final release.
Changes to the Interior
The 2024 Hyundai Santa Cruz will retain its predecessor’s posh interior design and degree of refinement. Like the Santa Fe and Palisade models, the new Santa Cruz will offer a spacious interior with seating for up to five passengers.
The huge 10.25-inch screen is the highlight of the cabin, and it supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as standard equipment. The technology will ensure better safety than it was in the past. Thus, we may anticipate a forward collision warning with automated emergency braking, a lane-keep assist, and a driver-attention warning. Overall, as you can see, the new Santa Cruz offers more comfort and better technology.
Specifics of the Powertrain
The next-generation 2024 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck will have the same two powertrain options as its predecessor.A 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine with 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque is under the hood.
Another option is a 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder engine producing 281 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. The more powerful engine comes standard with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2024 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck will be sometime next year. As far as we can tell, the new pickup will hit the market as a 2024 model. Pricing is still unknown, but since there won’t be any major changes, we expect it to be the same as the suggested retail price of the current model.
