Compare the Upcoming Ford Maverick to the Hyundai Santa Cruz

Are you eager to harness the power and capability of a Ford truck but concerned about your next ride being too much truck for your needs? That's precisely what makes the new Ford Maverick so appealing. Ford toughness is in its DNA, but its compact size makes it easy to maneuver around town without making you feel like you have to put extra thought into getting in and out of parking spaces. See how the Ford Maverick holds its own against rivals like the Hyundai Santa Cruz here at Appel Ford.

Performance and Capability

The Ford Maverick comes standard with a hybrid powertrain, allowing you to tap into its impressive towing and hauling power and save fuel at the same time. With a 2.5L full hybrid engine under the hood, you can take advantage of an EPA-estimated driving range of up to 500 miles alongside a standard 1,500-pound payload capacity. You can also opt for a 2.0L EcoBoost engine. The Hyundai Santa Cruz is not available as a hybrid.

Technology and Safety Features

The Ford Maverick offers plenty of ways to help you get more out of your driving experience. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, as does an 8-inch touchscreen for easy menu navigation. You can also opt for the available SYNC® 3 infotainment system, which grants easy access to your favorite apps and features. The Santa Cruz also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but only the Maverick supplies the user-friendly versatility of the SYNC® 3 system.


The Maverick also comes with a FLEXBED™ that is fully customizable to help you carry and organize your gear. You can even hook up LED lights or a mini-fridge to add an extra edge to your adventures.

Ford Co-Pilot360™

The Maverick is also available with Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology, which puts a variety of advanced driver-assist features at your fingertips, such as Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning with Dynamic Brake Support. The Santa Cruz offers Hyundai SmartSense, which supplies a similar spread of features.
