2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Performance

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz performance will assist Fernley drivers in their daily commute and their weekend towing jobs. The Santa Cruz pickup comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. However, drivers can upgrade to a turbocharged 4-cylinder set up that churns out 281 horses and 311 lb-ft of torque.

In addition to its engine options, the Santa Cruz is built on a unibody frame meaning it will ride comfortably on Sparks roads while still supplying up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. Read about some other Santa Cruz specs below:

  • The base-level 2.5L engine offers a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds. To reach the 5,000-pound upper limit, drivers will need to opt for the turbocharged alternative.
  • With 5,000 pounds of towing capacity, drivers can easily haul ATVs, waterskis, light open trailers, and even some boats and campers!
  • At its most efficient, the 2022 Santa Cruz offers fuel economy of up to 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. These figures have been achieved with AWD, so you don’t need to compromise for a more efficient drive.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Design

There’s no question that the Hyundai Santa Cruz has a unique design compared to the rest of the vehicles in the Hyundai lineup, however, its design allows drivers to easily stow and tow their equipment while also being easy to drive on Reno roads. Read more about the Hyundai Santa Cruz design below:

  • The Hyundai Santa Cruz is based on the Hyundai Tucson, but it features an angular, finely-tuned body that you won’t see on any Tucson model.
  • Each Santa Cruz model is designed with a four-door crew cab, and every model in the lineup features upscale materials. To begin, the Santa Cruz offers a fully digital gauge cluster, a lockable tonneau cover for your bed, and a traditional shifter that will please hardworking truck fans everywhere.
  • Other available features for the Hyundai Santa Cruz include heated/ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a 360-degree surround-view camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. An 8.0-inch touchscreen comes standard, and a 10.3-inch touchscreen is available.

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz offers everything you need and more in a pickup, plus its upscale interior is perfect for any type of commute in Sparks.
