    The Hyundai Palisade has been a huge hit for the South Korean brand since it went on sale for 2020, generating over 80,000 sales in 2020 and repeating the feat in 2021. Now Hyundai is introducing the mid-size SUV with its first update, with the 2023 Palisade You get a bolder design, a reconfigured interior, and the latest technology gadgets.

    The Palisade’s grid is now more rectangular and features a graphical handling similar to shields like the Tucson and Santa Cruz. The signature of thick, boom-shaped vertical LED lighting has been pushed into the outer edge of the fascia, visually expanding the SUV, and overall Palisade lines becoming more squared than before. The rear bumper has been redesigned, and the Palisade ride shown here rides on new 20-inch, 15-spoke wheels. These images represent the best model of the font, with images of the underlayment close to the date of sale.

    The interior has also been reworked, with a new steering wheel design and thin horizontal air vents that extend across the instrument panel. A 12.0-inch infotainment screen now comes standard, and USB-C ports are sprinkled throughout the cabin. The Palisade also offers a driver’s seat that includes a massage function, the third row gains heated seats and the second row gains headrests and seat ventilation.

    Palisade Hotel features many modern technologies. For example, a digital rearview mirror is now an option, while the wireless charging capability is faster than before. Also available is the latest version of the Hyundai Digital Key – which allows owners to use their iPhone, Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy to lock, unlock and start their vehicle instead of a key – or drivers can start the car remotely via a key fob or the Blue Link app. Palisade also became the first Hyundai to offer Wi-Fi hotspot capability.

    The 3.8-liter V-6 was unchanged in the 2023 Palisade, and it still produces 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is still present as well, and the Palisade can still be used with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Fenders equipped with all-wheel drive acquire a drag mode, which reprograms the gearbox to hold lower gears longer and reduces the frequency of gear changes. The Palisade should also be safer than before, with side-impact rear airbags now standard. A range of driver assistance systems are available, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Intelligent Navigation-Based Cruise Control, Highway Driving Assist, and Remote Intelligent Parking Assist.

    Hyundai also says the Palisade will add XRT trim in the same vein as the Santa Fe and Tucson XRT models revealed last year. The Palisade XRT will be an efficient off-road look package, with darkened 20-inch wheels, skid plates, roof rails, and darkened rims. More information and photos about the XRT are expected in the coming months. The 2023 Palisade will go on sale in early summer, with pricing to be announced as the sale date approaches. We expect the price to go up a bit, with the current 2022 Palisade starting at $34,845 and the Calligraphy model at $48,535.
