Hyundai introduced its new flagship three-row Palisade SUV to U.S. media at its driving introduction in scenic Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The 2020 Palisade rides on an all-new SUV chassis with exceptional second- and third-row roominess coupled with a generous cargo area and reconfiguration flexibility. The Palisade is produced in Ulsan, Korea and is arriving at U.S. dealerships in late June.
The interior design combines a sense of relaxation and comfort creating a serene environment with eight-passenger seating standard for family adventures. Palisade also offers a class-exclusive Blind View Monitor that complements the available Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, which provides easy-to-see body-side views whenever the turn signal is activated. The audio and navigation display is a generous 10.25-inch touchscreen in widescreen format, coupled with a 12.3-inch fully-digital TFT center instrument cluster offering various view modes and differentiated drive mode illumination. Two Bluetooth® devices can be connected simultaneously, with one for a mobile phone connection and the other for audio streaming. The single instrument panel gauge cluster integrated with navigation offers exceptional legibility and ease of use, coupled with an available heads-up display feature.
Palisade offers abundant technology, including Hyundai’s latest navigation system, as well as standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. To eliminate the need for a charging cord, there’s an available Qi wireless charging pad for compatible Android devices as well as recent Apple iPhones. When it comes to audio technology, the available premium sound system is well-suited to the Palisade’s upscale interior.
Taking inspiration from aircraft technology, Palisade’s available Heads-Up Display (HUD) projects a virtual image onto the windshield, helping the driver to better keep his or her eyes on the road. The feature uses a system of mirrors combined with a full-color TFT LCD display and features adjustable brightness to improve daytime and nighttime visibility. Driving information such as speed, Smart Cruise Control status, navigation, Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, speed limits, Lane Following Assist and audio system data is projected at an ideal virtual distance for maximum legibility.
