Hyundai’s Pickup Truck Is Coming Soon: What We Know So Far

Hyundai

Hyundai is working on expanding its lineup. Currently, pickup trucks are some of the most popular vehicles in the United States, which is something the brand wants to tap into. Now, we have learned that Hyundai’s pickup truck, which will be called the Santa Cruz, will reach the U.S. Market in 2020 or early 2021.

Hyundai showed off its Santa Cruz Concept back in 2015 at the North American International Auto Show. It was set for production with an original release date of late 2018. However, after some personnel changes, the release date was pushed back to 2020.

The new truck will target what Hyundai calls “urban adventurers”: those who don’t need a full-size truck for daily work purposes but want something more capable, compact, and fashionable than a large SUV.

The new Hyundai truck is poised to capture a part of the ever-growing pickup market here in the United States. However, because of its smaller size, it will offer hopeful truck owners a more affordable way to get there. In addition, it could have unique features like the bed extender option that was part of the original concept. Hyundai has not released any specifics about the features or capabilities of the future production model, though, but we at Hyundai of Longview are eagerly awaiting the release of official details.

Updated 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

Updated 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

 

The 2019 Sante Fe takes the place of the Santa Fe Sport, which means that the new Santa Fe has two rows with seating for five people. A redesigned exterior with standard LED headlamps brings added visibility to the driver. The old full-size Santa Fe will now be called the Santa Fe XL.

The new 2019 Hyundai Elantra boasts major changes to its exterior design, starting with the front end. Triangular headlights and LED projectors make a bold first impression. An updated rear bumper and three wheel options also make a major impact on the new look. The interior also receives updates, including a new infotainment system, making this compact car a compelling option.
