2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz In Gastonia, NC

2022 Santa Cruz: All-New Sport Adventure Vehicle for Sale near Charlotte

A truck is a great way to improve the versatility and utility of your daily drives, but they're not always practical due to imposing space requirements and handicapped maneuverability. That's why Hyundai created the all-new Santa Cruz, its first-ever Sport Adventure Vehicle that blends the comfort and convenience of a crossover with the functional utility of a pickup. With its roomy and refined accommodations, capable cargo and payload capacities, and elevated ground clearance, the 2022 Santa Cruz is unlike anything on the market. And you can find it right here at Keith Hawthorne Hyundai of Gastonia.


SE and SEL trims are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (191 horsepower, 181 pound-feet of torque) that gives the Santa Cruz towing and payload capacities of 3,500 and 1,400 pounds, respectively. HTRAC All-Wheel Drive is optional, providing improved handling and control for rock terrain or inclement conditions.

If you're seeking even more power and capability for your Charlotte drives, SEL Premium and Limited models add a turbocharger (281 hp, 311 lb-ft) that increases the Santa Cruz's max tow rating to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. Turbocharged models come standard with HTRAC All-Wheel Drive and include a dual wet-clutch transmission for better cooling under increased loads.

Accommodations and Utility

The 2022 Santa Cruz is a four-door crew cab with spacious accommodations, attractive and durable materials, and plenty of modern tech features. Several comfort and convenience amenities are available to enhance the experience, including dual-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated seats, a power sunroof, and leather upholstery.

The flexible cargo bed provides lots of versatility for your activities and adventures. Rotating D-Rings, adjustable C-channel rails, multiple tie-downs, and a multi-position tailgate allow you to customize the bed for a variety of uses. The drainable under-bed compartment provides additional storage and can double as a cooler. And the available integrated cargo cover keeps your gear secure and protected from the elements.


The Santa Cruz's standard 8-inch touchscreen features wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for quick and easy access to smartphone apps and functions like hands-free calls and messages, maps and navigation, streaming media, and more. Limited models feature a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster is available for SEL and standard on higher tiers.
