The Hyundai Motor Company introduced a mid-size crossover SUV, Hyundai Palisade, in 2018. It replaces Hyundai Santa Fe and has a front engine with front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive options. It is a popular SUV in the United States of America other than in South Korea, Philippines, Australia, Indonesia, Russia, and Malaysia. The Hyundai Palisade available in the United States of America offers a single engine option. The Hyundai Palisade is restyled with some updates for the United States market and debuted in April 2022 at the New York International Auto show. This is the 2023 model of Hyundai Palisade and has an updated infotainment system with other innovative technology. The latest Hyundai Palisade has a more squared-off look and has a new design wheel, while the rear end has a revised design. The cabin has some changes that include a redesigned steering wheel and upgraded upholstery options. The infotainment system is improved, and new features are given, like a massaging option in the driver’s seat, heating technology in the third row, and a Wi-Fi connection. New trim is introduced in the trim options that offer black-colored exterior trim and a 20-inches wheel to enhance its sporty character and aggressiveness. The facelifted Hyundai Palisade is available in five trim levels. It has always been a hit by Hyundai because of its high-class cabin, spacious passenger room, and smooth ride. The latest Hyundai Palisade has extraordinary style and makes your road trips fun, from your daily carpools to thrilling adventures. It gives a seating capacity of eight passengers and is the best choice for large families. It comes with the latest safety features to make your ride safer than before. It is mechanically similar to Kia Telluride, and its competition with it will never end as the Kia Telluride is also introducing restyled model this year.

Engine, Power &  Transmission:

All trims of the Hyundai Palisade get their power from a 24-valve, 3.8 liters V6 engine that generates 291 hp of power at 6000 RPM and a torque of 262 lb-ft at 5200 RPM. It offers an all-wheel drive option along with a front-wheel drive. It comes with a Macpherson strut suspension at the front and an independent multi-link suspension at the rear. The braking system has four-wheel disc brakes with an Anti-Lock Braking system. All trims offer an eight-speed automatic transmission and can be shifted manually through the paddles mounted on the steering wheel.

Performance & Drive:

The V6 engine in the Hyundai Palisade delivers much power to make your journey comfortable. The transmission is smooth and keeps the ride quality high. The gearbox shifts smoothly, and the transmission can change to manual with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel, but there is busy shuffling of the ratios when moving on a hilly road. The steering response is firm and makes the car’s handling easy, but it feels sloppy around turns. The latest Hyundai Palisade has trailer pre-wiring and sway control and can tow up to 5000 pounds. The acceleration of the Hyundai Palisade is quick, and it takes 6.9 seconds to sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour and needs 182 feet to stop from 70 miles per hour. The fuel economy of the Hyundai Palisade is efficient, and the front-wheel-drive gets 19 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highways. The all-wheel drive gets 19 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles on the roads. The all-wheel drive feature in Hyundai Palisade provides greater traction control so you can drive on slippery roads comfortably. It offers navigation-based, intelligent cruise control that maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead with the help of radar, and it reactivates if the car in your front moves within three seconds. It offers a blind spot collision warning that uses radar to notify any vehicle in your blind spot area, and an audio alarm is given so you can change your lane. It offers a Lane Keeping Assist system that warns you when your car drifts out of the driving lane, and steering assistance helps to keep you on your route. The Hyundai Palisade has a high beam assist in headlamps that work automatically.

Exterior Design & Features:

The 2023-onward Hyundai Palisade comes with an updated exterior design. It has a cascading grille on the front that looks appealing to every eye, and the sharp and bold fascia at the front and rear is eye-catching. The rear end is revised and looks beautiful as before. It offers 20-inches wheels with a new wheel design that makes it look bolder and sportier. The facelifted Hyundai Palisade offers a new trim that enhances the beauty of the Palisade and has some black accents on the exterior with lighting enhancements to make it look refined and bold.

Interior Design & Features:

The new Hyundai Palisade offers premium comfort and has a spacious cabin with three rows of seats and a seating capacity for eight passengers. The cabin is peaceful with no wind and road noise, so you can feel relaxed and focused. You can move to the 3rd-row conveniently through a touch of a button in the 2nd row, and the higher-end trims have captain chairs in the 2nd row to enhance your comfort level. It offers a cargo space of 86 cubic feet when all seats fold. It has an area under the load floor to store wet items. It provides a 12.0-inches touch screen display that is compatible with Android Auto, Apple Carplay, navigation system, SiriusXM radio, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Safety & Features:

The Palisade received a perfect five stars from the government for overall, side and frontal crash protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Palisade a Top Safety Pick+ for its top-rated performance in all crash tests and for its crash-prevention tech.
