2020 Hyundai Palisade Exterior Design

At Phil Long Hyundai of Motor City, we are thrilled to introduce the new 2020 Hyundai Palisade to Colorado Springs. The Hyundai Palisade release date occurred over the summer of 2019, and it replaced the 3rd row Hyundai Santa Fe XL in the lineup. That now makes the new Palisade the largest Hyundai 7-seater SUV (even with optional 8-passenger seating configurations) available. Let's take a closer look at the 2020 Hyundai Palisade price, fuel economy, configurations, design, amenities and performance specs.

The new 2020 Hyundai Palisade interior has room for either 7 or 8 people, depending on the configuration you choose. There are 18 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, which increases to 45.8 cubic feet when you lower the back row of seats. When you put all the seats down, you acquire 86.4 cubic feet of room. If you need a little more space, look below the cargo floor for the extra storage compartment.

Exterior comparison of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade and the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL

There won't be a 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe XL available, but the Palisade is taking its place taking on a completely new exterior redesign. The Santa Fe XL resembled other Hyundai SUVs like the Tucson but the Palisade has a much bolder, new look. The new Palisade changed the front-end grille and hood to show a stronger chin. The Palisade has a vertical headlight design with a large inside LED strip. The rear end squares off instead of cutting downward to allow for more cargo space and a larger SUV feel. The 2020 Hyundai Palisade measures 196″ L x 78″ W x 69″ H plus it weighs between 4,127 and 4,387 pounds.
