Hyundai Santa Cruz concept
DETROIT -- Hyundai has built a pickup truck. Crazy right? The Korean brand isn't exactly the first marque that most think about when looking for a truck, but the Santa Cruz concept is proof that the automaker is at least thinking about diving into this space.
The automaker states that the concept is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that is good for 190 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is estimated to be in the "high 30 mpg range."
If I were to play the "looks like" game, I'd say that the Santa Cruz's design looks like it would be just as comfortable wearing a Mazda badge. The headlamps and foglight recesses in particular remind me of the new CX-5 and CX-3.
