2020 Hyundai Palisade

2020 Hyundai Palisade Springfield



An all-new large SUV, the Hyundai Palisade, is set to take the place of the Santa Fe XL for the 2020 model year. The Palisade, which will compete with the Honda Pilot, Subaru Ascent, Toyota Highlander, Kia Telluride, Nissan Pathfinder, and Volkswagen Atlas, will roll into dealerships in mid-2019 to eager anticipation from buyers seeking a capable and modern vehicle with seating for up to eight and all of the latest technology features for both safety and connectivity. Its MSRP is expected to be somewhere in the vicinity of $30,000 to $35,000, since it's larger than the Santa Fe XL, which has a starting MSRP around $28,000. Expect a 291 horsepower 3.8-liter V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission as the powertrain, with front-wheel drive standard and all-wheel drive (with special Snow Mode) available.


Although full information hasn't been released by Hyundai yet, word has it that this will be a clearly upscale vehicle, with amenities not often seen at this price point. These may include heated and ventilated front seats, a moonroof, wireless device charging, three-zone automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel, and sophisticated active safety technology. The spacious cabin will include two cup holders for each passenger it can hold: yes, that's sixteen places to stash a beverage.

Tech and Safety Features

The nerve center of the Palisade's technology features will be its user-friendly infotainment system, which will be competitively well equipped at the base level but will add the figurative bells and whistles at higher trim levels. The fully digital instrument cluster is ultra-modern and well designed, letting the driver see crucial vehicle stats at a glance. USB ports are standard in the first two rows and available for the back row. The in-car intercom features a sleep mode you can select so as not to awaken dozing passengers in the back rows.

The impressive list of standard safety equipment includes forward collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, driver attention warning, and safe exist assist. One of the active safety highlights, the Blind View Monitor, uses side mirror-mounted cameras to project a clear view of the Palisade's blind spots on the instrument cluster. It's activated in response to turn-signal use. The available Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert will audibly remind the driver to check for a child or pet in the back seat if motion is detected inside the vehicle after it is parked and the driver exits without also opening a rear door. This system will send alerts through the Hyundai Blue Link telemetrics system as well.

Comforts and Conveniences

The Palisade can accommodate eight with the standard second-row bench, but many buyers will opt for the available pair of captain's chairs instead. These seats, which will be available with a cooling feature as well as heated, can be easily moved forward with the press of a button to allow easiest access to the third row. The third row can also be equipped with the one-touch power-folding features, and it will also split and recline. Cargo capacity will be ample even when all seats are in use, but it will be almost cavernous with either of the two back rows folded down. Roof rails will be either standard or available for carrying sporting equipment and other goods atop the vehicle.

Some of the notable upgrades that will be either optional or standard on higher trim levels include a hands-free power "smart" liftgate with auto open, dual-panel moonroof, and quilted Nappa leather upholstery for the seating surfaces, door panels, and dashboard accents.
