The Largest Flagship 2020 Hyundai Palisade Officially Unveiled

Marion JacobsDec 02, 2018

With even more to come, "There's no question about it".

Hyundai hasn't yet said how much the Palisade will cost when it goes on sale next year, but it will likely cost more than the 2019 Santa Fe XL's entry price of $31,895.

Like those other three-row crossovers, the Palisade boasts its own family-friendly features to entice SUV shoppers.

Hyundai's biggest utility to date, the Palisade is longer, wider and taller than the outgoing Santa Fe XL. To put that into perspective, it's slightly longer than a Toyota Highlander, though shorter than the recently updated Honda Pilot or the Ford Explorer. There are 16 cupholders on offer as well.

Inside, the Palisade asserts its flagship status in Hyundai's range with its unique and upmarket dashboard layout, along with available technologies and trims. Nonetheless, it's not just a big box, with the familiar Hyundai cascading grille and just enough curves, suggested design chief SangYup Lee, to give it a "sensuous sportiness".

The Hyundai Palisade, being the family auto it is, gets a whole suite of safety features which will be offered as standard on all variants.

For safety, the Palisade gets Hyundai's SmartSense technology as standard, which bundles forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind spot collision-avoidance assist, lane following assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, safe exit assist, high beam assist, driver attention warning and smart cruise control with stop and go.

The cabin is well equipped, as well, with a plethora of USB ports for everyone to plug into. This storage space is accessed via a power-operated tailgate.

Inside, the US-spec model will feature a 10,25-inch touchscreen coupled with a 12,3-inch fully digital TFT instrument cluster.

Huyndai offers a sophisticated Driver Talk in-car intercom system with rear seat conversation and sleep modes for the vehicle.

The new Palisade takes that one step further, and can welcome eight! All the seats in the middle and rear rows can fold flat to create a giant cargo-swallowing space of 1,625l.

The interior of the new Palisade is on par with its competitors. Front-wheel-drive is standard. The Palisade's only engine at launch is the company's 3.8-liter Atkinson-capable direct-injection V-6 rated for 291 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. An automatic unit with eight ratios will be handling the transmission duties. The power can be sent exclusively to the front wheels or to all four via a new HTRAC four-wheel drive system.

The Palisade is the latest addition in Hyundai's ongoing effort to rework its car-heavy lineup with a batch of new, redesigned or freshened light trucks.
