The new Hyundai Santa Cruz: Making Honda and Ford very uncomfortable

October 12th, 2021 by

The new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup at Great Lakes Hyundai in Streetsboro has the looks and the features you want in a more compact pickup. Designers of rivals like the poor, well-meaning Honda Ridgeline and the Ford Maverick may find the Santa Cruz aggravates their insecurities, but this truck will give you a nice confidence boost every day you drive it. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?


The exciting new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz, now showing in our new inventory, provides two engine choices, an option the designers of the Honda Ridgeline decided you really don’t need. Select an economical four-cylinder or a turbocharged engine with 281 horsepower, which is more horsepower than Cleveland, OH truck buyers can get from the Ford Maverick.


We’re not sure why Ford and Honda didn’t put more of an upscale, quality feel in their interiors, but the Hyundai Santa Cruz takes care of that for you. While buyers of the Ford Maverick will have to watch passengers fight for the right to a charging port, the Santa Cruz offers wireless charging, thus creating a lasting state of internal peace.


Because the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz is so affordable, you might be looking for places Hyundai cut corners. You’ll be looking a long time in the new Santa Cruz, especially with the available 10.2-inch touchscreen in higher trims, something Ford and Honda apparently overlooked. They also seemed to have missed the opportunity to offer you an available Bose audio system with eight powerful speakers like the Hyundai Santa Cruz offers.
