Fast Facts:

1. Hyundai dropped this interesting crossover-based truck concept at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

2. Called the Santa Cruz, this truck sports a 2.0-liter diesel engine that makes 190 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque.

3. It also features the HTRAC all-wheel drive system and promises to earn 30 mpg on the highway.

4. The Santa Cruz Concept has a bed extender that allows the entire bed to be stretched out, giving the truck roughly the same size bed as a midsize pickup when pulled out.

5. Hyundai says it designed this concept to go after the CUV and sedan customer so towing and payload were not priorities during design.

6. The feeling from Hyundai executives is that the company wants to have a truck offering, so expect the Santa Cruz to eventually go into production.
