Hyundai Palisade SUV confirmed – Los Angeles debut

Hyundai’s flagship SUV now has a reputation – the Palisade – and it's slated for unveiling on the Los Angeles Motor Present on the finish of November. Positioned above the Santa Fe, the three-row Palisade is about to enter the US market within the second quarter of 2019.

The complete-size SUV entrant from the Korean automaker was previewed by the Grandmaster idea proven on the 2018 Busan Motor Present, and wears a way more upright stance in comparison with the manufacturing SUVs which have come earlier than it, together with the aforementioned Santa Fe and Tucson.

The flagship SUV would be the cousin to the Kia Telluride, which in idea kind boasts of a three.5 litre petrol-hybrid with a complete system output of 400 hp, and the forthcoming Palisade has equally been purported to undertake a V6 powertrain. All-wheel-drive is probably going, and nearly definitely joined by a FWD model.

Regardless of having revealed solely what seems to be a portion of the tailgate, we have now a tough concept of the Palisade’s silhouette due to some spy photos, which confirms will probably be a extra squared-off form, headed by a big cascading entrance grille and slim headlamps, as seen on the Santa Fe and the Kona B-segment crossover.

When it makes its debut, the Palisade will go toe-to-toe with the likes of the Honda Pilot and Volkswagen Atlas, each transverse-engined, front-wheel-drive based mostly giant seven-seater SUVs with provision for all-wheel-drive. The Palisade might go one higher, with an eight-seater structure.

Based on Hyundai, the SUV’s title references a sequence of coastal cliffs and would possibly naturally be related by many with the Pacific Palisades, an prosperous and delightful neighborhood in Southern California.
