Hyundai Santa Cruz Returns to Rebelle Rally with Rugged Upgrades

Hyundai also participated in last year’s Rebelle Rally with a modified Santa Cruz. This year, the truck will be driven by veteran auto journalists Jill Ciminillo and Kristin Shaw, who partnered up last year to compete in the same model.

The Rebelle Rally, an all-women, off-road navigational challenge, is now in its eighth year since its inception in 2016. It commences on October 13, with competitors navigating 1,500 miles of California desert using only compasses and paper maps. The rules require participating vehicles to disconnect their antennas to eliminate GPS technology, and any internet-enabled devices are strictly forbidden.
