Hyundai has been working on the Santa Cruz pickup for quite a few years now which first debuted as a concept at 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Kia also announced last month that it will be offering a pickup truck as well. However according to a new report from CarsGuide the two automakers could offer their trucks in a variety of body styles including single and double cab with gasoline and diesel engine options.
Hyundai said similar offerings were under consideration but went further indicating cab-chassis and extra-cab plans as well. Although details are pretty scarce at the moment however it is being said that these pickups will attempt to offer a car-like driving experience bundled with the extra practicality of a pickup truck.
The production version of Hyundai and Kia’s pickup trucks are expected to arrive in a couple of years time ideally around 2022, however they may break covers in concept forms before that.
