    Hyundai Santa Cruz Truck body leaked

    I watched the TFL review. It looked like space was ok in the back once he got in, but it seemed like he had to contort his body a bit more than usual to get in.

    Hyundai Santa Cruz Truck body leaked

    I think it’s based off of the Tuscon instead of Santa Fe right? The New tuscon starts at around $25k. I’d guess this is priced somewhere around there too.

    Hyundai Santa Cruz Truck body leaked

    I don’t doubt that at all. Even though these vehicles are similar, I see them going after completely different markets. That’s why I think Subaru will be the main competition here. I was really surprised by the engine specs of the Santa Fe. We already know that the maverick will be getting the optional 2.0 turbo which has 250hp and 277ft lb torque in the bronco sport. Maybe ford ups the output in the maverick but I don’t see that happening, as that would make one of their premium products (bronco sport) have a lesser engine. I also like the blind spot cameras that Hyundai has on this and many other models. When your blinker is on, it shows you what’s in your blind spot right in the digital IP. I wish ford would implement something like this.

    Hyundai Santa Cruz Truck body leaked

    https://www.motor1.com/news/501230/2022-hyundai-santa-cruz-debut/ Reveal was today. Lots of pictures at the link. Here’s a few highlights: -optional 2.5L turbo 275hp 310 lb ft -5000 lb towing -bed is 52 inches long -hidden storage area in bed floor (like the ridgeline but smaller) after watching the reveal, I think Hyundai has a winner here. Production vehicle looks better than I thought it would. It basically has the new Tucson’s interior which is pretty nice in my opinion. I see this taking away sales from Subaru.
  5. https://fordauthority.com/2021/04/2021-ford-explorer-enthusiast-st-offers-st-performance-at-lower-price/ The new Enthusiast ST starts around 48k. The article mentions a bunch of things it comes with but I didn’t see it mention how it differs from the regular ST. It would have been nice to see them drop some more content to make it even cheaper. It would be awesome if they would make an XLT with the ST appearance package and engine in the low 40’s.
  6. So if you pay for the connected navigation and then your 3 years is up, what happens? It says “reverts to embedded navigation with no connected navigation services.” What does that mean? What does the connected navigation give you that embedded navigation doesn’t? $80/yr seems a bit ridiculous for something that is free on every cell phone out there.

    OAC BEV Clay Model?

    My local dealer had a Mach e and I went and checked it out. It’s a small vehicle and pretty low to the ground as it is. It’s hard to imagine this being smaller and lower.
  8. I’d be happy with any big bend pics without the mud flaps 😆
  9. The Bullitt looks better, the GT500 looks and performs better. At 53k for the Mach 1, I’d rather wait for the next mustang redesign.

    '21 March Sales/Chart

    Toyota currently has deals with BMW (Supra) and Subaru (86). They also had the Yaris based off of a Mazda and recently did a joint venture with mazda on a plant in Alabama. It would be interesting to see ford take this approach to bring back sedans. Surely it would be much cheaper than developing a sedan all on their own.

    The Macan has some large vents (or whatever they are) on the side of the grille which gives it a sporty look. It also doesn’t look like it’s smiling at you. I think the escapes body is fine, just a tweak on the front would do wonders.

    it will take time to take sales away from the Tacoma. It was the only small truck around for years which helped it build up a following. It also still looks pretty good even being as old as it is. I think it has that aggressive look truck buyers want, whereas the ranger is much more subdued. I’d guess the new ranger will take some sales away from the Tacoma in 2023, especially with the raptor and tremor packages.

    '21 March Sales/Chart

    What kind of numbers do the other brands do in fleet? I’d have to imagine Toyota or any other brands fleet sales went down just as much as ford’s right?
