Default 2020 Hyundai Palisade

Quote:
Hyundai will use this month's 2018 Los Angeles auto show to unveil a full-size SUV the automaker confirmed Thursday will be called a Palisade.

Due on sale next year as a 2020 model, the Palisade will offer seating for eight and features normally found on luxury vehicles, such as premium cabin materials and advanced safety technologies.

Hyundai previewed the design with the Grandmaster concept (shown below) unveiled in June. We've also spied prototypes testing in the wild over the course of the past year. Though camouflaged, the prototypes hint at a large, boxy design, with the treatment for the grille and headlights similar to what we see on the redesigned 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Underpinning the vehicle is a new front-wheel-drive platform with transverse engine mounting and all-wheel-drive capability. The recently revealed 2020 Kia Telluride is also based on this platform. Meanwhile, we can look forward to a V-6 as the standard powertrain and potentially a hybrid option at some point.

Potential rivals include the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, Dodge Durango, Ford Expedition, Honda Pilot, Nissan Armada, Toyota Sequoia, and the aforementioned Telluride from Kia. The Palisade may even be built at the same plant in West Point, Georgia as the Telluride.

We'll have all the details soon as the L.A. auto show opens to the press November 28. To learn about some of the other vehicles set to appear, head to our dedicated hub.

2020 Hyundai Palisade Is a Three-Row Flagship with Luxury Looks
Enlarged dimensions and upscale style mark the new big SUV



Hyundai is upping its sport-utility game with the all-new three-row Palisade, which is making its debut at the Los Angeles auto show. The 2020 Palisade replaces the Santa Fe XL, leaving the facelifted-for-2019 Santa Fe—previously known as the Santa Fe Sport—as the marque’s mid-size two-row. Got that?

Along with ditching the Santa Fe XL name, the Palisade is longer, taller, and wider than that model, and it features Hyundai’s new cascading grille design flanked by projector-beam headlamps. Hyundai says the Palisade’s “flush surfacing” recalls Cadillac’s recent SUV design language, and indeed its upside-down L-shaped taillamps also recall those of Cadillac SUVs, especially the XT5’s. LED illumination is optional out back.



The all-wheel-drive system incorporates a torque-vectoring function, as well as Comfort, Smart, and Sport modes. 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. It’s not yet known if Hyundai will add more powertrains to the mix. Standard towing capacity is 5,000 pounds, and there’s an optional Class III hitch with two-inch drawbar.

Hyundai’s designers have pushed the Palisade’s instrument panel down for a low cowl in order, they say, to create more cabin space and improve outward visibility. A shift-by-wire gear selector sprouts from the center console, the third-row seat features power reclining and folding, there’s an in-car intercom, and the center stack is punctuated by a 10.3-inch touchscreen.



Typical for the segment, eight-passenger seating with a center-row bench is standard, while a seven-passenger version with second-row captains’ chairs is available. A safe-exit assist feature uses the blind-spot warning system to lock the doors if another vehicle or, say, a bicyclist is about to pass.

As mentioned, the Palisade is bigger than the vehicle it replaces. To be specific, overall length is up 3.0 inches versus the ’19 Santa Fe XL, to 196.1 inches, while width is up 3.6 to 77.8 and height up 2.4 to 68.9. The wheelbase also increased, by 4.0 inches to 114.2.

The Mazda CX-9, Subaru Ascent, Ford Explorer, and Chevrolet Traverse are among the mainstream three-row crossover SUVs that will be in the Palisade’s sights when it goes on sale next summer.

I'll be test driving one of these next summer alongside the Telluride especially with the discounts you get.

If its anything like other kia/hyundai relationships, the kia will likely be the better deal, same car and option level for less$. Thats how my dads sorrento went. Mostly just which face and look do you like better, H or K, like Chevy/GMC.

Either way, both look straight away head and shoulders above the others offerings.

The only thing that bothers me with this vehicle is the power numbers. Seems really low for a vehicle that big.

Is it a problem for the other vehicles in the segment? It's right on par with the whole group.

This looks to be the size of a Tahoe. The smallest engine is a v8 producing 355hp and 388tq.
