If there's any Australians on the forum, the Palisade is on track to launch some time next year.
spoke with Hyundai Australia CEO, J.W. Lee about the launch and he said "I think it’s about 80 per cent [likelihood],” he said, “We still have some engineering things we need to work out, like which engines.” ”They [Hyundai Motor Company Global] haven’t said no,” he added.
The article also adds that "Should it be made available in right-hand drive, Hyundai Australia would like to offer the Palisade with both petrol and diesel power trains, the former exclusively with front-wheel drive and the latter exclusively with all-wheel drive. Regardless of powertrain, both variants are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission."
