TCC’s Bottom Line
Putting the fun in functional, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz combines the utility of a truck with the ride quality of a crossover. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator, for better or worse, is a Wrangler with a bed. Nothing else will satisfy those who seek exactly that, but competitors are more comfortable and more affordable. The 2021 Subaru Outback hangs on to its remarkably rugged stance as it grows more refined than ever.
