Following the release of initial photos of a camouflaged Hyundai Tucson, the Korean automaker shared more images of the next-generation crossover.

Based on the latest pictures, the upcoming Hyundai Tucson comes with a refurbished front fascia characterized by a cascading grille and a split headlight design reminiscent of current Hyundai models Santa Fe and Venue.

Other than information on the fascia, however, no other definite details are available on the new Tucson, whose design according to Sangyup Lee, vice president of styling at the Hyundai Design Center, will “freak you out.”

The hype is understandable, though, as the upcoming Hyundai Tucson has big shoes to fill being the brand’s best-selling model. And judging by what’s already been revealed, consumers can expect a knockout in the new model. Besides, if the 2020 Sonata turned out as stylish as it is, Hyundai could be perfectly capable of doing the same to the Tucson.

But other than a bold design, the new-generation Hyundai Tucson is rumored to boast a Thera 3 2.5-liter engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. For its American market, Hyundai is expected to offer turbo and non-turbo variants for the base model. It is also likely for the company to offer the same 2.0 GDi HEV hybrid powertrain equipped in the new Sonata, with both front- and all-wheel-drive versions available.

The next-gen Hyundai Tucson is expected to be launched in 2020 for the 2021 model year. Other than the high-selling model, the Hyundai is also set to build its first ever pick-up truck based on the upcoming Tucson. The truck, rumored to be named the Santa Cruz, will be built at Hyundai’s Alabama plant along with the Tucson.
