2020 Hyundai Palisade for Sale in Hyannis, MA
The all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade has arrived to take the place of the outgoing Santa Fe XL, which is being discontinued. The Palisade will improve the Korean automaker’s offering in the SUV segment: it is three inches longer than the Santa Fe XL and has a wheelbase that’s four inches longer. It will compete with the Ford Explorer, Kia Telluride, Honda Pilot, Subaru Ascent, Toyota Highlander, and Nissan Pathfinder.
The powertrain consists of a 291-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive available. The AWD system has torque vectoring for the most precise traction, and a properly equipped Palisade can tow up to 5,000 pounds. A drive mode selector will be standard, with Normal, Smart, Sport, and Snow settings. The body shows off a muscular design with flared fenders, and vertical LED taillights add to the boldness. The trims will likely be available in SEL, SEL Plus, Limited, and Ultimate, and the starting MSRP is expected to range between $30,000 to $35,000, with the most loaded version possibly approaching the $50,000 mark.
Technology and Safety
The infotainment center has a user-friendly 10.3-inch touchscreen display, with upgrades as the trim levels rise (including a full-color head-up display showing helpful information about navigation, speed, cruise control, and the like). An intercom system will be offered to allow the driver to communicate with the second or third-row passengers, and it will feature a Rear Sleep Mode to keep from disturbing back-row passengers. USB ports are expected in all three rows, so that everyone has a place to charge their device. Blue Link-equipped Palisades will come with three-year complimentary subscription to the service that includes remote start with climate control, remote door lock/unlock, enhanced roadside assistance, car finder, and stolen vehicle recovery.
Hyundai equips its vehicles with an impressive list of standard safety and driver-assist systems, and you can expect to see a good number of them on the 2020 Palisade. Some of the technologies that could come standard may include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic warning with automatic braking, and adaptive cruise control. Among the more unique safety features is Hyundai Safe Exit Assist, which ensures the safety of passengers exiting on the traffic side of the vehicle; it detects cars approaching from the rear and keeps the rear doors from opening until the vehicle has passed. There is also a rear occupant alert system that is designed to remind the driver that a young child or pet may have been inadvertently left in the car.
The Palisade has room for eight when it’s ordered in the standard way, with a second-row bench seat instead of the available pair of captain’s chairs. In either configuration, the third row will have a power folding and reclining split bench seat. The cargo space is more than ample, with 18 cubic feet available even with eight passengers seated. When that third-row seat is folded flat, the capacity grows to 45.8 cubic inches. This exciting new vehicle also presents an innovative roof vent diffuser design that provides focused airflow to passengers in the second and third rows. And with a total of 16 cup holders – that’s at least two cupholders per passenger – nobody will go thirsty on a Palisade road trip.
