Hyundai Santa Cruz 2021

Hyundai’s very own production model pickup truck the Santa Cruz 2021 is already being tested and soon the Korean giant will announce it later this year. It’s the first consumer-ready truck the company will launch. The engine details remain vague but some rendered images have been released. We expect it will feature a 2.2-liter turbo diesel and probably a hybrid electric one for select markets.

Nissan Navarra Calibre

Just a couple of days ago, Nissan officially teased the updated Navara and Navara Calibre trucks. There are no clear images or visible changes aside from the redesigned headlight. Nissan is expected to introduce the Navara 2021 based on Titan by this year and hopefully launch it by early 2021.

The current engine on the Navara is a 2.5-liter turbo diesel. The company will likely upgrade the engine with more torque and power.

The Mazda BT-50 is yet to be revealed with a new look and new engine. But it is heavily expected to borrow the exterior looks from its SUV counterparts, the CX-9, and CX-5.
