Yeah, you heard us right, Canada has not had a proper small truck since the S10 be­came the Colorado, the Toy­ota Truck be­came the Ta­coma, or since the Ranger got fat. In terms of truly com­pact pick­ups, the man­u­fac­tur­ers have ne­glected us since 1993, cre­at­ing the rise of the Ja­panese Kei truck as an un­der­pow­ered re­place­ment. How­ever, for those look­ing for a new com­pact truck that comes with a war­ranty, your time is near. Ac­cord­ing to RoadandTrack.com, Hyundai Mo­tor Amer­ica CEO Dave Zu­chowski said dur­ing the 2016 Detroit Auto Show that the only thing left to de­cide about a new down­sized pickup was tim­ing of the of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment. The ve­hi­cle he is re­fer­ring to is the Santa Cruz con­cept, which Hyundai pulled the cov­ers off at last years NAIAS.
