Now we bear the real, legit affirmation so the Santa Cruz intention stay made for real, as Hyundai introduced so much manufacturing concerning that current mannequin wish begin in Alabama into 2021.
The truth as the Hyundai Santa Fe is also made at this plant suggests up to expectation the production Santa Cruz may quantity some aspects along with up to expectation mid-size crossover. We assume that wish remains a similar type about the car as much the Honda Ridgeline, who itself is robotically comparable in accordance with the Honda Pilot crossover.
The Santa Cruz concept (pictured) used to be a car-based pickup including a tiny mattress yet a compact cab with rear-hinged half-doors; we believe the actual issue may stand an outfit cab with 4 forward-hinged doors.
