Hyundai’s addition of the Santa Cruz to its Montgomery, Alabama production facility is expected to add around 1,200 jobs to the economy when the vehicle goes into production this June. Sales are scheduled to start in the summer, but Hyundai is giving customers the opportunity to reserve one early, much like recent releases such as the Bronco.
Pricing has not yet been announced, but the Santa Cruz will ship standard with Hyundai’s class-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, 5-year/60,000-mile limited vehicle warranty, and complimentary maintenance for 3 years/36,000 miles.
Hyundai is truly doing its best to show that just about any body style can look good, and the specs seem impressive too. It seems then that it’s not just the producers of luxury SUV that need to watch out for Hyundai, but how will the Korean automaker surprise us next?
