It is only a matter of time when the Hyundai Palisade is entering production. We could see it already in 2019. According to spy shots, the development is in final phrases, and we could see the new SUV on the market. The 2019 Hyundai Palisade could be very similar to the Honda Pilot. The vehicle is going to offer eight seating spots in the cabin.
The Hyundai Palisade is the largest vehicle the Korean company ever produced. At this moment that is Santa Fe SUV. But, in future, the Palisade is not going to hold this position for too long. We already know the Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup truck is almost rout. Besides that, the carmaker is about to launch another vehicle – a full-size Rugged SUV. The last model will be luxurious and powerful and some experts believe this is going to be the Toyota Land Cruiser’s competitor. But before it, we should see Palisade three-row crossover SUV.
Hyundai Palisade Competition
Being a mid-size three-row SUV guarantees you will have a wide audience. On the other hand, there is also big competition in this segment. With nameplates such as Dodge Durango, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, it is not easy to count on the big impact right from the start. But, Hyundai is the growing carmaker. They made it in other markets. It is also pretty successful in the compact class, which is even more crowded, with models and buyers. Finally, Hyundai Palisade is probably going to be cheaper from its rivals. That gives it one of the main advantages.
Hyundai Palisade Release Date
The 2019 Hyundai Palisade is still a possibility. Fans believe the company is going to make it and debut in the first half of next year. Even if it doesn’t happen, it won’t take too long before the new model will be available for purchases. We believe 2020 is the last year when the Palisade three-row SUV could be out. The next, Hyundai Rugged SUV is waiting in the line as the next one to appear.
Since Hyundai got us used to affordable vehicles, the new Palisade is going to be one of the cheapest SUVs in its segment. Dodge Durango and VW Atlas start under $30,000. Hyundai Palisade price will be closer to Kia Sorento which comes for $27,000.
Hyundai Palisade Spy Photos
Spy shots of the Hyundai Palisade are available for a while. The new SUV has a rigid and bold look with many interesting details. However, spy photos are not unveiling too much. The interesting grille and an eight-seat interior layout are certain. Headlights on the Palisade test mule are larger, but it is expected since the model is the biggest in the segment. It could replace the Santa Fe Xl model which is planned for the next season. By that, the 2019 Hyundai Palisade is going to carry over some of the design solutions from its sibling.
Hyundai Palisade Specs
Under the bonnet of the new SUV could be a 3.3-liter V6 engine. With turbochargers, it can make up to 400 horses. However, we doubt the new SUV needs so much power. Engineers could detune it for 50-60 ponies.
