Hyundai had never done a 3-row SUV before, so the announcement for the 2020 Hyundai Palisade near Monroe was a bit of a surprise. Would Hyundai be able to do a 3-row SUV that outdoes the competition? Let's just say that the 2020 Hyundai Palisade shows that you can get something right the first time around. They've created a luxury SUV that isn't priced like a luxury SUV, with distinctive styling that manages to come across as both humble and powerful.

The aggressiveness of this grille is unmistakable and may rank as one of the most recognizable of all grilles ever designed. They really wanted to make a first impression on the Palisade, and they succeeded mightily. And while the Palisade is an incredible value, there is no doubt that Hyundai wasn't afraid to throw in chrome accents and bold styling so that this one never really admits that it's a budget 3-rower. You won't look like you're driving a budget SUV, either, and you can expect more than a few compliments thanks to the headlight and foglight designs, the bold wheel options, and the sculptured body.

The SE and SEL trims have room enough for the comfort of 8 passengers, but it's down to 7 passengers in the Limited. No worries. Cargo space is ample in all models, and most families will be well accommodated with the seating for 7 in all 3-rows. We also love the folding system of the 2nd and 3rd rows. It provides 86 cubic feet of cargo space in the second row (with the 3rd row folded down), and 46 cubic feet of cargo space when the 3rd row is folded down, so you have a lot of room to play with your configurations. You can go with a cloth interior, but remember that Nappa Leather Seating surfaces are a thing on the Palisade, so if you want luxury, you've got it.

Mechanical - Hyundai Palisade specs near Monroe

Your Palisade is powered by a 3.8L 6-cylinder engine good for 281 horsepower and 262 lbs-ft of torque, a confident powertrain coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® (manual shift mode available). Turning diameter is pretty sweet, too, at 38.7 ft. (curb-to-curb). You've also got MacPherson strut suspension with coil springs to give you the most gentle of drives without feeling like it takes away from the power you hold over the road beneath you. It's a silky smooth ride with just enough power, but not overpowered, and that's perfect for most people who want an SUV of this type. The construction of the Palisade is a true testament to its powerful presence.
