Hyundai confirms that Palisade is a name of a new vast crossover that will enlarge a automaker’s lineup. The name is not a warn as it has been floating around for some time now interjection to a U.S. heading focus for a moniker filed progressing this year. Though Hyundai says a name refers to “a array of coastal cliffs,” it does spirit that it had an abundant Southern California area called a Pacific Palisades in mind when it staid on what to call a latest crossover, that fits Hyundai and Kia‘s settlement of fixing vehicles after places.
The eight-passenger Palisade will reinstate a Santa Fe XL, that is radically a carryover of a three-row 2018 Santa Fe sole alongside a new, smaller 2019 Santa Fe. The Santa Fe XL was too slight for gentle seven-passenger seating and struggled to contest in a shred with a Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Nissan Pathfinder, Mazda CX-9, and new entries such as a Volkswagen Atlas and Subaru Ascent.
We have been expecting a Palisade given Hyundai showed a HDC-2 Grandmaster SUV concept progressing this year during South Korea’s Busan Motor Show.
The Palisade, designed mostly for North America given a size, will make a tellurian entrance Nov 28 during a Los Angeles automobile show. The Palisade is a reflection to a Kia Telluride, also an eight-passenger crossover.
Palisade is one of dual all-new vehicles Hyundai will supplement subsequent year. Hyundai is not observant what a other new car is. It is not approaching to be a Santa Cruz pickup. While a automaker motionless to ensue with a Santa Cruz car-based midsize lifestyle lorry a few years ago, it was not a priority with so most other product growth underway. Santa Cruz is still a work in swell for sale expected in 2020.
