Hyundai’s Next Palisade Aims to Continue the Upscale Image



Like its platform-mate, the Kia Telluride, the Hyundai Palisade is going under the knife, with the results planned for show at the 2022 New York Auto Show on Wednesday.

Come a few minutes to 10, Eastern time, the next Palisade will be seen completely uncovered. Hyundai is previewing a few changes: A wider grille, a new front-lighting look that includes vertical LED headlights, new alloy wheels, and….actually that’s it. For now.

Yeah, I know. Most auto journos hate teasers as much as you do — or rather, I, for one, wish I had more to share with you. But I don’t, since Hyundai is playing this close to the vest, as OEMs almost always do, and no little birds have been yapping to us off the record.

So, like with the Telluride (and Kia Niro), we’ll know the specifics at the same time you do.


Until then, I think it’s safe to say Hyundai wants to keep the premium-lux appearance of the Palisade, which has a more-urban aesthetic than the boxy/rugged Telluride. That certainly seems to be the case based on the teaser shot of the new headlights and wider grille.

All shall be revealed in just two days.
