2020 Hyundai Palisade Review & Compare in Peoria, AZ

The Large SUV You've Been Waiting For: The 2020 Hyundai Palisade

With a peek of this model during 2018 in Los Angeles, we have been eagerly awaiting its arrival, and now that it is upon is, we couldn't be more excited with what we are seeing.

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is more than just an SUV to get you through the day, it goes above and beyond the capabilities of your average crossover SUV to make sure it can always provide exactly what you are looking for. A variety of the most advanced features and options make this one of the most versatile models that you will find, making it right for just about any driveway.

You can choose from several different trims for the 2020 Palisade, including SE, SEL, SEL Plus, Limited, and Ultimate. These trims are available in a wide array of colors like Lagoon Silver, Sierra Burgundy, Moonlight Cloud, and Becketts Black.

An Interior for Any Family

The cabin of the 2020 Palisade proves why we believe it is such a strong contender in its class. Each passenger is given enough space to spread out and really feel like they are comfortable on a road trip rather than being cramped between other passengers and gear. The gear will fit snugly in the cargo area behind the third-row - that's right, there are three rows of seating to hold up to eight - or you can fold the seats down and expand the space to meet your needs. The flexibility in the cargo bay helps fit some of the larger gear that competitors might not be able to hold.

Take to Any Road - Or Don't

Enjoying your drive is about more than comfort, it's about excitement and dependability. Helping your Palisade take on any road or highway is the 3.8-liter V6 engine that makes up to 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. While other models of this size aren't known to be efficient, the 2020 Palisade comes equipped with Idle Stop and Go technology to help increase its fuel economy. This helps make it a model to trust on any vacation, road trip, or adventure that you have lined up.

You'll be surprised at how precise and responsive the steering is on the 2020 Hyundai Palisade. The large and imposing body doesn't give the impression that it would react almost instantly to your wheel, but this SUV is proving that it will exceed all our expectations.

Even though this model excels at highway driving, don't feel like you need to keep it on the pavement. The all-wheel drive system - available over the standard front-wheel drive system - comes with a locking center differential to get power to the wheel rears to give you the best traction wherever you go. You can swap between settings - snow, sand, mud, and road - to adapt to your surroundings.

Technology Throughout

You should be well-connected to everything for the most enjoyment out of your drive. The 2020 Palisade makes sure you have the option to include the amenities that will give you access to your media as well as the most essential information. From the 10.25-inch infotainment screen to the head-up display, everything is easy to use and get to so that you can have everything without feeling distracted.

Also helping to reduce distractions are the driver assistance features. A variety of standard and available safety features make this an SUV that will keep you feeling confident even when the highways are full of traffic. The standard array of features includes advanced options like Rear Cross Traffic Alert with Collision Avoidance Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Safe Exit Assist, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, but there are more that you can also include.

Our Final Thoughts

If you need an SUV that can fit every need of your family, this could be the one that is right for you. It has all the features that a driver could be looking for to be confident and enjoy their time behind the wheel. Our recommendation is to give this model more than just a test drive, give it some serious consideration as your next vehicle.
