2020 Hyundai Palisade

Last Updated:

Here is the first official photo of Hyundai’s new “big SUV”. Which will replace the long wheelbase version o the previous Santa Fe. But also move upmarket, apparently. (Why not make even more money)
From the side, this looks very much like a GM product to me. For some reason.
Upfront, it is basically a bigger Santa Fe with more bits and chrome.
The Palisade is basically the Kia Telluride’s cousin. ( I guess that means the Kia will be revealed later)

Here is what the new Palisade is based on: the Grandmaster Concept.

And yes, the Grandmaster should have become a Genesis SUV. Not a Hyundai.
Since the new luxury brand is in desperate need of one…

  1. Very nice. These guys are truly moving upmarket. Good for them. And if, to some eyes, it looks like the Acadia, if I were GM I would be worrying.

  2. One of the worst front ends on a modern car. Almost has the Avalon beat.
    That chrome is just putrid. Such lazy, dated detailing for it to (like a late 2000s pickup truck).

    Ruins an otherwise fine looking SUV. Hyundai has fallen so far from their design grace a few years back. More messy, less taste.

  3. I like the Telluride design better. This is not ugly. But to me the Teeluride looks more of a Truck.this looks like a GMC or old Saturn Outlook/Acadia. I like the Acadia.

  4. It looks upscale for a Hyundai. Lovely design and I like the grille. Every one is heading in the same direction anyway. And they just hired a Lambo/Bentley executive to head up their design. A V8 would be a stupid move however.
