In its 2021 Hyundai lineup, the automaker has introduced an even more upscale version of its popular flagship SUV. With an even more premium feel, smart designs, and plush interior, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade delivers what it promises. Let's look at what makes this three-row SUV the ultimate getaway vehicle.


The vehicle's 3.8-liter V6 engine combines with its 8-speed automatic transmission to give a total power output of 291 hp @ 6000 rpm and torque equal to 262 Nm @ 5200 rpm. The robust powertrain gives the vehicle enough strength to tow loads up to 5000 pounds.


More spacious than ever, this vehicle has one of the most comfortable and airy interiors of all Hyundai SUVs. It has three rows for seating and all of them offer a first-class experience. The high-end interior boasts the use of high-quality materials in upholstery and styling.

For the SE and SEL trims, an 8-inch infotainment display connects the driver to the car. It supports Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. For the upper trims, a 10.3-inch display is standard and optional for SEL. It offers SiriusXM satellite radio and navigation features. Hyundai's Blue Link maximizes the 8-passenger SUV's intuitive services and adds features like remote lock and unlock.


For 2021, the SUV comes in four trims, which include the new top-spec Calligraphy trim. The SE, SEL, and Limited trims have standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive. For the highest trim, an all-wheel drivetrain comes as standard. Calligraphy also flaunts many styling changes and an overall upgrade from the lower trims.
