The Hyundai Palisade is rumored to be on track for a redesign sometime around 2025. However, a closer look finds that early reports are based on mere assumptions stemming from the fact that the current Palisade generation arrived for the 2020 model year. Hyundai has not yet confirmed when the Palisade will be redesigned.
According to a report from the publication Automotive News, the next-gen Palisade could see the addition of a 4-cylinder turbocharged model or a hybrid. Given the fact that the smaller Hyundai Santa Fe now offers gas, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid variants, we think the possibility of an electrified Palisade may not be so surprising.
Having said that, Hyundai has not yet offered any hints of what to expect from a next-gen Palisade. The three-row SUV continues to be a popular commodity at dealers across the country, often commanding significant markups. With practically no Palisade incentives to speak of, buyers can generally expect to pay a hefty premium.
The current Palisade comes standard with a 3.8-liter V6 engine rated at 291 hp with 262 lb-ft of torque. Prices start at $34,375 including destination, although the range-topping Calligraphy model can reach nearly $50,000 when equipped with all-wheel drive. Whether or not the SUV will get a price increase remains an open question.
Although we'd like to estimate a release date in 2024 or 2025, a global chip shortage has already had a significant impact on new car production. As a result, it could be difficult to predict when the next-gen Palisade will arrive based on a typical five-year update cycle for most cars and trucks.
Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
