Ann Arbor, Michigan is where the new 2022 Santa Cruz pickup truck was spotted recently.

Hyundai making the same mistake Subaru made with Baja. 4 door is just another entry into a crowded class and will fail. Make the 2 door and be in a class by itself with no competition and have a more useful box. I would buy the 2 door but won’t bother looking at a 4 door.

I actually really like what they did with the concept version and the rear doors. That said, I have a Baja and I love it. I am convinced that it was 10 years ahead of its time and if it was introduced today, Subaru would sell boatloads of them. Where I think Hyundai is missing the boat is...it has taken them too darned long to get this thing to market. Instead of having the market to themselves for 3-4 years, they are going to run into a ton of competition, now.

I had an '86 Brat for about 10 years and over 200,000 miles and loved it too. Subaru head gasket problems kept me from buying another Subie. Hyundai concept had me all excited again for two seater awd and something I could actually get in my garage.

Brats are very cool. I JUST saw one for sale in Colorado. It was PRISTINE...about 90k miles on it. Sold for about $16k. It was such a cool looking vehicle, even if it had less than 100hp.

I am very happy with my Baja. It BARELY fits in my garage. But it does. The Santa Cruz is almost exactly the same size, from the specs I have seen. My wife is considering it. That way, I can keep my Baja and we will BOTH be happy.
