Hyundai Santa Cruz is Coming ASAP

If you've been wondering when you'll have the opportunity to test drive the Hyundai Santa Cruz, you're not alone. Since its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in 2015, Hyundai brand enthusiasts have been waiting to get a peak at this sleekly-designed automobile. 

According to Hyundai's Chief Design Officer, Luc Donckerwolke, the Santa Cruz pickup truck will make its way to Hyundai showroom floors as soon as possible (ASAP). While ASAP isn't an exact date, reliable sources estimate that the pickup truck will arrive at Hyundai dealerships in 2020. 

What's Causing the Delay for the Santa Cruz? 
As an automotive brand, the Hyundai Corporation is committed to providing customers with quality vehicles that are built to last for years to come. That's the reason Hyundai vehicles such as the Elantra, Santa Fe and Ioniq have garnered so many awards. 

When Hyundai finally rolls out its new Santa Cruz pickup truck, you can be sure that it will exceed your expectations. Instead of rushing this highly-anticipated pickup truck to the marketplace, Hyundai designers want to be sure that the Santa Cruz is equipped to satisfy customers' needs. 

It may seem as if Hyundai designers have been 'dragging their feet' with the Santa Cruz's production, but that's not the case. In fact, Hyundai auto designers have been busier than ever creating new and innovative vehicle designs. 

New automobile designs include the Hyundai Kona EV. This electric vehicle is eco-friendly and fuel-efficient. 

In addition, Hyundai auto designers have been working diligently to enhance the brand's SUV lineup. Upcoming SUV options that you can expect to see in the near future include the Hyundai Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade. 

Now that you know what's been holding up the production of the Santa Cruz, you can be certain that this pickup truck will offer something special when it's introduced to the market.
