For 2021, the Hyundai Palisade adds a new Calligraphy model and streamlines its packaging to simplify shopper trim selections.
The upscale Calligraphy trim adds numerous premium features, including 20-inch alloy wheels, exclusive front/rear LED lighting signature and micro-suede headliner.
The 2021 Hyundai Palisade has undergone significant content repackaging to give buyers of all trim levels added comfort and convenience. Much of the former Drive Guidance package, including high-demand features such as a 10.25-inch navigation system, Highway Drive Assist, SiriusXM Radio, Blue Link, and Driver Talk (in-car intercom system), was added to the Premium package and above.
The Palisade is Hyundai's flagship SUV. A powerful, extended hood profile creates an impressive road presence, while bold C-pillars and a panoramic glass side graphic convey generous third-row spaciousness.
The One-Touch second row seat allows for one-touch operation of the seat forward and out of the way for easy access into and out of the third-row seat. For more convenience, the third row offers power-folding/unfolding and reclining seats. Second-row captain's chairs are also available with ventilated seating surfaces.
Palisade power comes from an Atkinson-cycle 3.8-liter V6, dual CVVT, direct-injected engine, for excellent power and efficiency. This 3.8-liter powerplant produces an estimated 291 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and an estimated 262 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm.
Palisade delivers that power to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with a multi-plate torque converter and offers both two-wheel and HTRAC four-wheel-drive configurations, with a final drive ratio of 3.648 for confident acceleration. Special efforts were made to reduce Palisade NVH, with generous under-hood insulation, special sound-deadening carpets and powertrain tuning that delivers a smooth, linear response.
