Hyundai Palisade Leaked … in Russia

0 comment

A few weeks out from the LA Auto Present at which it’s scheduled to debut, a Russian car fanatic website has revealed a picture of what definitely seems to be the 2020 Hyundai Palisade.

Cribbing a couple of styling cues from different current Hyundai crossovers, together with a grille vaguely formed like a sharp mushroom bookended by low-slung headlight peepers, the journey proven right here seems all set to seem in a faculty drop-off queue close to you.

Your humble writer applauds the Korean automaker for scuttling away from the complicated nomenclature it flung on the Santa Fe in current years, a mishmash of Sport and XL suffixes match solely to befuddle buyers.

“We’re in search of a 3-row crossover. Is that a Santa Fe?”

“No, that’s the two-row, which was referred to as the Santa Fe Sport however is now referred to as the Santa Fe.”

“Sure. A Santa Fe is what we need to see, then.”

“No, our three-row known as the XL.”

“I didn’t think you guys made the Excel anymore.”


Right here’s what we do know: the three-row Palisade will probably be obtainable as an eight-seater, presumably with a 2/three/three configuration. Nevertheless, if Hyundai sees match to convey again the bench seat, this human can be fairly excited (they gained’t, in fact). A transverse V6 is a protected guess, resting in the identical structure that underpins the Kia Telluride.

Whereas some retailers are pushing the Palisade/Telluride as machines to compete with the Tahoe, it’s robust to see them as true rivals. The GM models are famously physique-on-body, powered by growly V8 engines, all of which is sort of in contrast to the brand new Korean fraternal twins. It’s potential they could share an incredible cope with the Tahoe in phrases of exterior dimensions, nevertheless.

The Palisade takes a few of its styling cues – in a toned down type, natch – from the HDC-2 Grandmaster idea proven earlier this yr. Grandmaster, by the best way, is a most wonderful identify for a vehicle, rating up there with Interceptor and Energy Hawk.

Hyundai’s final sojourn into the three-row biz with a machine not carrying some model of the Santa Fe identify was the Veracruz, a rig that disappeared from the American panorama in 2012. First-yr gross sales have been its excessive water mark, as 12,589 Veracruzeseses discovered takers. Gross sales dwindled annually to only underneath 9,000 in 2012. Conversely, 2012 was the mannequin’s best yr in Canada, albeit with fewer than 2,000 models bought.

Anticipate an official copy of the Palisade to seem on the LA Auto Present, held on the finish of this month. Until, in fact, Hyundai PR decides to toss their palms up in the air and launch press photos in the wake of this leak.
