Recently introduced as a completely new model, the Palisade is the biggest vehicle Korean carmaker ever made. Therefore, it draws a lot of attention, even the second production year, which is about to come as 2021 Hyundai Palisade. According to some reports, there is a chance to see an electrified version in the offer, though the officials are still quiet. Other than that, we might see a couple of additions in terms of standard features. The rest will remain the same.
The Palisade is a great SUV in many ways. You get a roomy and quite luxurious cabin, full of tech features. Also, the ride quality is very good, while the list of standard safety features looks pretty impressive as well. On the other side, we would definitely like to see something more powerful under the hood, although the current V6 has more than enough power so satisfy most drivers. The 2021 Hyundai Palisade release date should be scheduled for the last quarter of 2020.
2021 Hyundai Palisade Interior Space
When it comes to the 2021 Hyundai Palisade interior, we don’t count on any particular changes. That means you may count on the same design, that is characterized by a pretty spacious cabin, with plenty of room in all three rows. It seems enough to say that even the second row features more than 42 inches of legroom, so you may presume how spacious this crossover is. The third row also features a quite decent amount of space, so even adults would be able to accommodate for shorter rides.
When it comes to the cargo capacity, there are 18 cubic feet behind the third row, which is a pretty typical number for the class. We like the fact that the power-folding third row is on the list of standard features. Once it folds down, cargo volume increases to 45.8 cubic feet. The overall cargo capacity goes up to 86 cubic feet, which are also quite respectable numbers for the class.
2021 Hyundai Palisade Design
In terms of base design characteristics, this model shares many parts with the Kia Telluride. Therefore you may count on a pretty smooth ride, which is also pretty quiet. On the other side, handling could be a little bit better, so don’t expect any sportier performances from the 2021 Hyundai Palisade. This is a typical comfort-oriented family SUV. Still, it looks pretty attractive, with a lot of premium details. The exterior styling may be dividing, but there is really nothing to complain about when it comes to interior design. The cabin of this crossover is not just spacious, but also well designed and full of hi-quality materials. Also, the list of standard features is pretty long.
When it comes to standard features, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade could get a couple of novelties, but most things will remain the same, which is great. This model offers a long list of tech goodies, starting from a nice 8-inch touchscreen and intuitive infotainment system. The list of standard tech goodies also includes things like Bluetooth, numerous USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto etc. In higher trims, you can get a bigger touchscreen, as well as a large 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Other available tech goodies are things like premium audio system, wireless charging, navigation etc.
When it comes to safety features, the current model already shines, so we don’t expect any notable changes for the next year. The current model comes standard with things like forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, a rear occupant alert, lane keep assist, lane centering assist, driver attention monitoring, Smart Cruise Control etc. Additionally, you can get blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights, front parking sensors, an ultrasonic rear occupant alert, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a surround-view parking camera, a head-up display etc.
2021 Hyundai Palisade Engine
As we already mentioned, some reports are suggesting electrifications. This makes perfect sense, but the fact is that 2021 Hyundai Palisade Hybrid is still just a rumor, as we haven’t heard anything from the officials yet.
On the other side, the current V6 engine will carry on in the same way. It is a familiar 3.8-liter unit, which is good for about 291 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It comes in pair with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, which ensures a smooth and convenient ride. When it comes to fuel economy, this engine returns around 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, which are typical numbers for the class. Speaking of typical numbers for the class, a max towing capacity goes around 5.000 pounds.
Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, the launch date should be scheduled for the last quarter of 2020. When it comes to the 2021 Hyundai Palisade price, base models should go around 32.000 dollars.
