Hyundai has finally revealed the price for the 2022 Santa Cruz, and it's a little disappointing because the vehicle begins at $23,990.
The Santa Cruz SE includes a 1219 mm composite bed with lockable underfloor storage at the entry-level. The variant also has rear privacy glass, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a power-locking tailgate with a remote opening. Drivers will discover air conditioning, power windows/locks, and a remote keyless entry system on the interior. A 6-speaker stereo system, a 4.2-inch multi-information display, and an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are among the other highlights.
A number of driver assistance technologies are now available, including High Beam Assist, Lane Keeping / Lane Following Assist, and Intelligent Speed Limit Warning.
A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an estimated 190+ horsepower and 244+ Nm of torque provides power. It is linked to an 8-speed automatic gearbox that delivers power to the front wheels. However, for an additional $1,500, an all-wheel-drive option is available.
The Santa Cruz SEL ($27,190) is the next trim level up. It now has heated front seats as well as an 8-way motorized driver's seat with lumbar support. Additionally, heated side mirrors with turn signals, lighted sun visors, and a proximity key with a remote starter are available to buyers. Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist is also available on the mid-level model.

Buyers may also choose the $3,270 Activity Package, which includes a sunroof, tonneau cover, and sliding rear window. The kit also includes LED lights and a bed rail system. A 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a wireless smartphone charger are among the other attractions.
The Santa Cruz SEL Premium ($35,680) improves on this with LED headlights, digital key technology, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and a dual-zone automatic climate control system are also standard on this model.
The major news, though, is a turbocharged 2.5-liter engine with 275+ horsepower and 420+ Nm of torque. It's mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox and comes standard with all-wheel drive. In addition, the engine increases towing capability from 1,588 kg to 2,268 kg.
That takes us to the top-of-the-line Limited, which begins at $39,720. It's a luxury vehicle with a distinctive appearance that includes a dark chrome grille, rain-sensing wipers, and 20-inch alloy wheels.
The inside is well-appointed, with heated and ventilated leather seats, a heated steering wheel, and a 10.25-inch infotainment system that includes speech recognition technology. Ambient lighting, rear air vents, and a Bose premium audio system are also included. Not to mention Highway Driving Assist, a Surround View Monitor, Intelligent Speed Limit Assist, and Smart Cruise Control with a Stop/Start feature.
The Santa Cruz will be available for purchase later this month and will be manufactured in Montgomery, Alabama.
