Exterior and Performance

Extracting fuel from a Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) system, the 2020 Palisade's 3.8 L engine block produces just more than 290 net horsepower. The peak torque output of this V6 powertrain is slightly more than 260 pound-feet. All 24 valves in this six-cylinder engine are controlled by the Dual-CVVT module. The standard Idle Stop & Go helps this Hyundai SUV achieve a highway fuel economy of 26 MPG. Engineered to boost traction in challenging driving conditions, the optional HTRAC All-Wheel Drive splits torque that's produced by the SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission. A shift-by-wire system and the Manual Mode supplement the eight-speed gearbox. Additionally, a cooler provides optimal thermal management for rapid gear changes in any season. Compatible with the AWD, the Snow Mode and Lock Mode keep the Palisade rolling on slippery roads. Off-road performance is optimized by the Hillstart Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control. When fitted with trailer brakes, this Hyundai SUV tows up to 5,000 pounds. If the vehicle doesn't have trailer brakes, it can only tow a trailer that weighs 1,650 pounds.

Interior and Technology

Quilted Nappa leather is optional for the 2020 Palisade's power front seats. The driver's seat provides additional benefits, such as heating, cooling, lumbar support and leg extension. The second-row seats slide with precise input by an electric system. You can also fold the seatbacks in the second row by pressing an electronic button. Configured into a 60/40 layout, the third-row seats come with ingress/egress handles. An electric power system is also available for easy folding and reclining of the third-row seats. An underfloor storage compartment slightly expands the total cargo capacity inside this Hyundai SUV. Speaking of cargo, families will love the hands-free Smart Liftgate that comes with the Auto Open technology. Designed for all-season comfort, the Palisade also has HVAC vents in all three rows. Second-row passengers can set desired temperature settings and fan speeds. The dual zone climate control system includes the CleanAir Ionizer that removes pollutants from the cabin, including smoke, pollen and dust.

An ambient lighting system illuminates the 2020 Palisade's cabin in 64 different colors. Running on TFT and LCD optical technology, the 7-inch MID also has an appealing glow. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is standard in the Limited edition. A head-up display shows colorful data in your natural line of sight. A 10.25-inch color touch screen is perhaps the most impressive technology in this all-new Hyundai SUV. The integrated navigation system receives traffic feeds from HD Radio. This premium model also has the latest connectivity amenities, like the Qi wireless charging and Blue Link Connected Car System. In the mood for upbeat music? Listen to some hits on the 12 Harman Kardon speakers. Powerful enough to blast 630 acoustic watts, the sound system carries the QuantumLogic Surround technology. Noise from other sources is mitigated by the Clari-Fi Music Restoration system. The Palisade also has the Driver Talk In-Car Intercom that's optimized for families.

Designed to provide lane-centering corrections, the Highway Drive Assist makes its debut in the 2020 Palisade. The Safe Exit Assist is another safety function that Hyundai designed for this all-new model. If you're fatigued or distracted, the Driver Attention Warning will urge you to pull over and rest. This premium SUV also has the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, which prevents accidents with pedestrians or vehicles. Additionally, this vehicle has other traditional accident-mitigation functions, like alert systems for blind spots and lane departures.
