2019 Santa Cruz Pickup Specs

There are few specification data available on this model. The company has not even disclosed the factory in which this model will be produced. According to some sources, there are three places where this model could be produced. It is Montgomery plant, Kia’s plant in Mexico or will be produced in Korea.

As far as the drive units are concerned, they are a complete unknown. The engines used by Hyundai Tucson are unlikely to be a satisfactory solution in this segment. This would mean that the 1.7 liter and 2.0 liter CRDi turbochargers will not be part of the 2019 Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup offer. The new model is likely to launch a new four-cylinder engine specially developed by the company for new Genesis models but the European market.

New Jeep Pickup Release

The official specification of this vehicle is not yet available. And much more data is not available to the public for many reasons.

The Scramble pickup truck will be produced at a factory in Toledo, Ohio. It should not appear in the market before the end of 2018. Given this great interest, now this information has lost weight.
