It's no secret that pickup trucks are popular with southeastern Tennessee drivers, so, it's always big news when a beloved truck brand releases a new model, the Ford Maverick. But it's not the only light-duty, brand-new pickup to debut recently. Hyundai has also added a pickup style vehicle to its collection with the Hyundai Santa Cruz.

Take A Closer Look


The Ford Maverick is a highly customizable model, with two great engine options available, including a cutting-edge and efficient hybrid powertrain. Standard power for the Maverick comes from a 2.5-liter hybrid four-cylinder engine, with an optional gas-powered, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder upgrade available. The Hyundai Santa Cruz also has two engine choices but is not available as a hybrid.


Both new models come with a few nice, advanced safety features as standard equipment, including forward collision mitigation. But Ford makes their full suite of safety technologies, known as Ford Co-Pilot 360, optional across the Maverick lineup, while Hyundai makes more safety features available only on upper trims, forcing drivers to move up in levels in order to get more driver's aids.


Both of these models are strictly available in the four door, crew cab style of vehicle. With a full-sized backseat, seating for five people, and a useful and versatile pickup bed for cargo transport, they seem to have a lot in common. But the Ford Maverick is more comfortable on the inside, with extra inches of legroom to stretch out in, especially in the front seat.


Similarly equipped when it comes to comfort and tech features, both of these vehicles get standard amenities that include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, a touchscreen infotainment system, and more. But the Ford Maverick also has LED headlights, and it makes many additional and sought-after features available as you explore the trim options.
