What powers the 2022 Santa Cruz?

There are two powerful engines available for the 2022 Santa Cruz, which cater nicely to drivers of all tastes. Most trims will come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that delivers 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque which pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and can tow up to 3,500 pounds. If you are looking for a little bit more power, you can upgrade to the turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 281 horsepower while upping the torque to 311 lb-ft. This engine comes standard with all-wheel-drive, and you can use it to tow up to 5,000 pounds. This engine also pairs with an eight-speed automatic and provides the Santa Cruz with a smooth ride no matter where you travel.

What are some of the features of the Santa Cruz?

Overall there are four primary trim levels available for the Santa Cruz, and each one comes with an excessive amount of features. The base SE starts things off. It comes with an 8-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, open bed functionality, 18-inch alloy wheels, a self-leveling rear suspension, LED taillights, an integrated rear bumper side step, and an electronic parking brake. Next is the outstanding SEL trim, which mixes a proximity key with a push-button start, heated side mirrors with turn indicators, heated front seats, a remote start, and an eight-way power driver seat with power lumbar. With this trim, you get plenty of available safety systems such as  Blind-Spot Collison Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist. Finally, the top two trims, the SEL Premium and the Limited, round things out nicely with more performance-enhanced features such as a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, dual automatic temperature control with multi-air mode, paddle shifters, a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a Bose premium audio system.

The comfort of the Santa Cruz

One of the best things about the Santa Cruz is how comfortable it is! The ride comfort and the seat quality for the Santa Cruz are both top-notch, especially when equipped with 20-inch wheels. Even if you travel far off the road, the Santa Cruz will still maintain its superior ride quality. In the front of the cabin, both the driver and passenger experience top-notch seat comfort to make your riding experience even better. For a more sporty feel, the front seats are well-bolstered and well padded for a ton of support. In the back, the seats are still well-padded and comfortable, and there is plenty of legroom, which is excellent even for tall passengers!
