This is based on the 2022 Tucson, so price one of those out the way you like it, then add $1-2K to the price for the pickup features IMO.
A white Tucson AWD Limited with the 2.5 natural aspirated engine is $37,635 MSRP after destination, and dealers are selling them for full price right now since they are so new and limited supply. The cheapest barebones stripper Tucson AWD in white will run you about $28K. The first people to get the Santa Cruz will also likely be paying close to full MSRP.
You'll be able to get a great deal on one, but probably not until sometime next year.
At the bare-minimum. As much as I hate to admit it, take your approach, add $2k for truck "things" then if you want the 2.5T, add another $2k.
So out the door, you're looking at $43k, again, bare minimum. Be prepared to pay more around $44.5 to $45k. Knowing me, I don't want any gutless non-turbo. Personal problem I guess.
Not cheap by any means of course. And reaching dangerously close to "better options" territory at those prices between competitors.
