Three-row crossovers don’t do well with compromise. Prior to the all-new Palisade, Hyundai tried to make do with both the Veracruz and the Santa Fe XL, but these were effectively stretched 2-row vehicles. They didn’t have enough space to hold a growing family, and they didn’t sell particularly well. With the Palisade, Hyundai hopes a little extra legroom will bring in the dollars.
A 3.8-liter V6 engine is the Palisade-shopper’s only option. With 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque routed through an 8-speed automatic transmission, it provides reasonable acceleration. Handling is also impressive, as the Limited-trim Palisade features a self-leveling suspension. Fuel economy comes in at 19 mpg city, 26 highway, 22 combined.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, as do a variety of driver-assistance technologies. Pricing starts in the low $30,000 range. However, stepping up to the Limited trim raises prices to a starting MSRP of $44,700, and all-wheel drive tacks on an extra $1,700 for each trim.
