It’s all but official, with credible reports that Hyundai is going ahead with their Santa Cruz pickup. “We have made the decision,” said Hyundai Motor America president and CEO Dave Zuchowski. “We have not made the announcement.” The midsize pickup should compete with the Honda Ridgeline, the Chevrolet Colorado, the Nissan Titan, and the Toyota Tacoma. It should get a diesel version also which would be coming from the Genesis sedan in Europe. Hyundai vehicles are available locally at Hyundai of Newport in Middletown Rhode Island.
