The first-ever Hyundai Palisade is the latest addition to Hyundai’s award-winning sport utility vehicle (SUV) lineup. Through meticulous design, Hyundai has created an SUV that has it all. Here, we will share the facts that make the Palisade an elite vehicle.
Hyundai Palisade Specs, Features and Options
The Palisade is our flagship SUV and features premium seating space, an elegant interior, and intuitive technology for all passengers. With a wealth of Hyundai SmartSense safety innovations, the Palisade is truly a remarkable SUV that is perfect for family life.
Where is the Hyundai Palisade made?
Hyundai manufacturing headquarters are in Seoul, South Korea. With the Palisade being a flagship SUV, it is imported into a number of countries, including Canada. Although there isn’t a manufacturing facility for Palisades in Canada, these SUVs are still built for Canadian drivers and road conditions.
With free trade deals in place, Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. is able to import vehicles at a reasonable rate and pass on savings to its customers. In a global industry, manufacturing facilities can remain in countries with the best economical advantage.
How Many Passengers Can the Palisade Seat?
The Palisade has 8-passenger seating available in three rows of seats. With heated captain’s chairs available in the second row, different configurations are available to ensure that families get the comfort they need.
The cabin space can be easily configured in a variety of different ways to tackle the demands of the moment. With the second and third-row folded, the Palisade offers a generous 2,447 L of total cargo capacity. For easy access to all that space, third-row seats also feature available power-folding at the press of a button.
Is the Palisade 4-wheel Drive (4WD) or All-wheel Drive (AWD)?
Available on the Palisade is the HTRAC All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system. With a quick turn of the drive mode selector dial, you can easily customize the traction distribution for heightened stability and control.
