2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz: Engine choices, specifications, and trim upgrades

The new 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz will likely go on sale in late summer or early fall 2022.

The price of the 2023 Santa Cruz will probably be a little more than the 2022 Santa Cruz.

The new Hyundai Santa Cruz from 2023 comes with two engine choices.

The turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine has 281 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque and the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

The turbo engine has a dual-clutch variant, although both engines are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Santa Cruz has a decent maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.

Features for assisting drivers that are now standard across all trims

In addition, the Santa Cruz collection for 2023 gains a new NIGHT trim.

The Ford Maverick is the sole rival of the Hyundai Santa Cruz in the compact pickup truck market.

Santa Cruz also has a complimentary maintenance program for three years or 36,000 miles.
