The Ford Maverick killed the Hyundai Santa Cruz in 2022

2022 Ford Maverick off-roading, wait before buying a compact truck

The small truck wars are raging and one contender is coming from an unlikely place. Hyundai isn’t a brand associated with building trucks, but its Santa Cruz shirks the company’s commitment to building cars and SUVs. Unfortunately for Hyundai, the Blue Oval has also targeted the segment with the Ford Maverick. And the Maverick outsold the Santa Cruz in 2022 by almost double.
