The 2017 Chicago Auto Show is only a few weeks away and Hyundai North America promises to bring us a new truck but it will not be an updated version of the Santa Cruz. With that being said, it simply cannot be helped for us to ask what kind of truck Hyundai will bring us next month?
The Announcement Of A New Truck
Hyundai announced at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show that it will be launching a new truck in at the Chicago Auto Show that will be taking place next month. "We will be launching a new vehicle (at the February auto show) in Chicago," said Mike O'Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning for Hyundai in an interview. Asked about details regarding the new truck however, O'Brien declined to give specifics.
The New Truck Will Not Be A Santa Cruz
One of the most popular concepts in Hyundai's lineup is the Santa Cruz that made its debut a few years ago and many people have already assumed that the new debutant next month will be the production version of the aforementioned model. However, O'Brien clarified that the new truck that will be making its debut next month will not be the highly anticipated Santa Cruz.
Santa Cruz May Still Come To The Auto Show
Despite being clarified that the new truck will not be the Santa Cruz, it appears that there is still hope that we may see it at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. In a report, O'Brien mentioned that the automaker is working as hard as it can to make the appearance of the Santa Cruz happen. With that being said, we will just have to wait and see how things will turn out. In any case, we will not have to wait long as the 2017 Chicago Auto Show takes place in just a few short weeks.
Santa Cruz Is Already Confirmed
The good news is the fact that the Santa Cruz is definitely coming our way as O'Brien stated that it already has a certainty of 100 percent. It does not really matter if the Santa Cruz is not yet making its appearance at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show for as long as it is already a production version the next time we see it.
Hyundai's New Truck: The Unanswered Question
At this point, the question remains as to what kind of truck will be bringing at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. From the looks of it however, this question will remain unanswered for a little bit longer. One thing is certain at this time and that would be the fact that Hyundai will definitely bring something we will welcome with open arms.
