I guess late 2017 then????Others are taking notice. Jeep unveiled the Wrangler Pickup with promises to reach production by late 2017. Honda just revealed the second generation Ridgeline. Riding on a unibody car platform, it rides smoother and gets better fuel economy but maintains the majority of hauling capability that most users will ever need. Hyundai appears to be following this tack, unveiling the Santa Cruz with room for 4 and a concept suggesting an extendable bed to make room for all your toys despite its compact standard dimensions. Even Ford is considering bringing the Ranger back to the U.S., which is still sold abroad.
They lost more than one. I got a new Subaru Outback last fall, instead of the new Tucson after they botched that launch up, and when the lease on this expires in late 2018, I'm sure I'll have plenty of these ute-type vehicles to choose from. So disappointing, but that train left the station and I really don't believe they give a rat's arse.It's been so long since we've heard anything, i've lost interest.
If it's not important for them to keep us informed, I'm gonna look for other options like the new Honda Ridgeline.
Sorry Hyundai, you lost one customer.
