For many years, the one item that has truly been missing from the Hyundai lineup has been a large three-row SUV with plenty of room. Sure, the Santa Fe has been there, but the rear seat has been small and a bit cramped. Now, the 2020 model year will usher in a new Hyundai Palisade model that gives us three rows of seats with room for seven or eight passengers to feel comfortable during the ride. This new SUV offers you the ride and the qualities that will make the most sense when it’s time to get behind the wheel and take your family out for a drive.
The Palisade is Hard to Describe
There are times when you drive a vehicle that just feels right and the new 2020 Hyundai Palisade is a vehicle that does feel great and gives you the drive you desire. The powertrain is powerful and feels competent when you take a ride while also giving you the fuel mileage that you want. The suspension of the Palisade gives you the ride you’re looking for to make it a smooth feeling when the road gets rough while still delivering on the abilities you expect to find in an excellent SUV.
This Hyundai Makes Driving Easier
One of the greatest challenges of a three-row SUV is being able to get everyone inside to take a drive. The second-row seat of the Hyundai Palisade is offered with one-touch sliding technology to make sure you can easily allow passengers to reach the third row to be able to take a seat. This sliding action makes it possible for an easy entrance and exit to the vehicle, which can sometimes be the most difficult aspect of a drive in a large SUV that has three rows.
Power for the Rear Seats in the Palisade
You can lower the rear seats of a vehicle that has three rows manually, but it can become cumbersome and difficult, especially when you take large items with you on a regular basis. The 2020 Hyundai Palisade offers you a power-operated third-row seat that can fold or recline to give you more room for your gear or allow passengers in this row to feel more comfortable when you take them with you for a drive. Check out this feature when you take your test drive in the Palisade and see how easy it is to have the room and the comfort you desire.
The Limited Trim is Right in this Hyundai
If you want to have all the indulgences that Hyundai can offer in the Palisade, you need to take a look at the Limited trim level. This is where you’ll find heated front and second-row seats, Nappa leather upholstery, the power-folding third-row seat, an eight-way power driver’s seat, full LED headlights, and taillights, a hands-free liftgate, and an intercom system that allows you to speak clearly to those in the third row without the need to shout at them.
The Right Power for the Palisade
There’s only one powertrain offered for the 2020 Hyundai Palisade and it starts with a 3.8-liter V6 engine that makes 291 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission to give this SUV plenty of shifting and power for the drive. You can tow up to 5,000 pounds with this SUV and you’ll have the choice of either FWD or AWD for the ride you want. The fuel mileage is 19 city/26 hwy in FWD models and 19 city/24 hwy for the AWD versions.
Its Time for a Drive at Hyundai
You’ve admired the quality and the package of features that Hyundai has routinely included in their vehicles, but your family has grown to a point that you need a three-row SUV to drive. Thankfully, the new 2020 Hyundai Palisade is an SUV that has the comfort and the quality you expect from this brand. Ask the team at your nearby Hyundai dealership to let you take a test drive so that you can see what version of the Palisade is the right one for you to have the drive you’re after for your daily needs.
