Hyundai’s largest SUV has been around for just a couple of years and it already established a very good position on the markets. Sales numbers are great, while the reception is great, both from critics and from the crowd. So, the Korean carmaker wants to retain this position and maybe even improve it. To do that, it will offer some novelties for the next year’s models. If we cant trust the latest reports, the 2023 Hyundai Palisade is about to receive a facelift. It will represent the fourth production year of the generation, which looks like a good time for such an update.
At this point, it’s still early to talk about details. However, we may presume that the focus of these updates will be on the styling. We presume that the new Palisade will come with a revised front end, though tweaks in other aspects of the vehicle are possible too. Furthermore, we may see some novelties on the inside as well. Finally, we can also find rumors that speculate about electrification.
The 2023 Hyundai Palisade should arrive sometime in the second half of 2022.
2023 Hyundai Palisade Design
When it comes to the base design, we don’t expect to see bigger changes. On the other hand, we expect to see a new styling. At this point, the details are yet to come but we presume that the focus would be on the front end. The 2023 Hyundai Palisade will get a new face and we presume that this face could look pretty similar to the new Tucson. We presume that the new Palisade could feature a quite similar grille and headlights design. Changes in other areas of the vehicle are possible two, while we also count on typical updates such as new color options, wheels etc.
As we’ve just mentioned, the mechanical aspect of the vehicle should remain the same. This SUV is mostly about comfort, and it doesn’t offer a particularly high level of athleticism. Still, the handling is good enough to satisfy most drivers, while we especially like the fact that the Palisade is quite easy to drive, despite the size.
Of course, we could see some updates on the inside as well, some tweaks to the dashboard, as well as updates in terms of materials, color schemes etc. However, keep in mind that the current model already looks pretty impressive in this aspect, so nothing significant should happen.
Naturally, the overall cabin layout will remain the same. We expect to see a familiar layout, which offers plenty of space for the passengers. The Palisade accommodates up to eight passengers and all three rows are spacious enough for adults. When it comes to the cargo area, you may count on about 18 cubic feet of space behind its third-row seats, 45.8 cubic feet behind the second row, and 86.4 cubic feet of the total cargo volume.
We also expect to see novelties in terms of new features. However, if we consider that the current model already stands pretty well in this aspect, we are pretty sure that the 2023 Hyundai Palisade won’t bring many new standard features. Most of the things should remain the same as in the current model. So, the list of standard equipment should include an 8-inch touch screen, HD Radio, Bluetooth, five USB ports, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Currently, the list of optional features includes goodies like a 10.25-inch touch screen, navigation, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, satellite radio, additional USB ports, wireless device charging, a sunroof, dual sunroofs, dual-zone automatic climate control, an intercom, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, push-button start, and remote start.
2023 Hyundai Palisade Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, standard models will continue in the same way. This SUV comes with a 3.8-liter V6 engine, which features a max output of 291 horsepower. The engine comes in pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the whole system works pretty well. Driving dynamics are pretty good, while the transmission shifts smoothly and mostly on time. When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on about 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Those are average numbers for the class.
We can also hear rumors that suggest electrification. The 2023 Hyundai Palisade could come with a new hybrid version on the offer. At this point, the details are still unavailable, but we presume that the new system would probably be based on a four-cylinder engine. The officials are still quiet.
2023 Hyundai Palisade Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2023 Hyundai Palisade sometime in the second half of 2022, with a starting price of around 33.000 dollars. The competition is tough and includes models like Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, Chevy Traverse, Honda Pilot etc.
