The Hyundai Palisade is an all-new three-row crossover that will replace the current Santa Fe XL. This new flagship SUV is loaded with technology and features that are sure to impress even the most scrupulous buyers. It’s fresh design, generous cargo volume and standard safety features, are everything you would expect from a family-friendly vehicle in this segment. It will be manufactured at Hyundai’s assembly plant in Ulsan, Korea.

One question that remains unanswered is when exactly it goes on sale in North America. There have been no official delivery dates from Hyundai, but many sources claim that it is set to arrive early this summer.

It will share some underpinnings from the Santa Fe, but Hyundai ensures us that there have been a number of changes including the chassis, which almost constitutes a new platform. It will share its powertrain with the Kia Telluride, drawing power from the same 3.8l V6 Atkinson engine. It generates 291hp and 262lb-ft of torque and is paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Demand for the Palisade has been so large in its home market that many buyers have found themselves waiting up to 10 months before receiving their car. With the size of this segment in North America, Hyundai should be taking all the necessary precautions to ensure a smooth rollout here.

The 2020 Palisade will be available in 4 trim levels including SEL, SEL Plus, Limited and Ultimate. Hyundai has yet to provide specifics about price, but we anticipate it won't start much higher than the Santa Fe XL’s $32,000 MSRP.

The Palisade is the beginning of a new design era for Hyundai, and a welcomed departure from the monotony of their previous crossovers.

Dare I say it comes off as a Cadillac but in a way its a good things here given the price.
Looking at alternatives we've been used to for many years like the Highlander, the Palisade is worth its starting MSRP off design alone. Where else can you get an SUV as attractive and affordable as this?
Looks like Hyundai is back making great looking cars. I recall the Sonata of a few generations ago looked amazing and then subsequent models looked pretty dull. It looks like Hyundai got its groove back.
This SUV is without question a bold new frontier for Hyundai and I hope that it gets the attention that it deserves. Since its using an already established powertrain there wont be any of the concerns one typically has with a first gen model either.
I have a lot of confidence in the fact it will succeed because its an SUV that paints with very broad strokes, all while priced low enough for anyone to own. Not only that but support is some of the best within the industry. Buy Toyota if you absolutely love them but Hyundai is where you're getting a steal.
