"The exterior and interior design of Hyundai Palisade clearly reflects its unique flagship identity with a premium, distinctive and bold road presence," said SangYup Lee, head of Hyundai's design center. "As a Palisade Design Manager, it has been a pleasure working with our international design teams throughout its development and presenting this phenomenal product to you today."
Palisade's style reflects dignity with style in a sober theme that demonstrates a clear differentiation worthy of a flagship SUV. From the front, a dominant, bold and wide cascade grille is clearly an upscale SUV. Separate composite headlights and a vertically connected front lighting signature create a strong and distinctive front-end behavior, with LED headlights, LED daytime running lights and LED mirrors available. The extended and powerful hood profile creates an impressive presence on the road, while the bold C pillars and the panoramic glass side graphic lend great generosity to the third row. The reinforcements and the flanks of the whole volume offer muscular details. The rear view emphasizes a wide and stable position thanks to sinuous details and a vertical LED taillight design. The panoramic rear window coupled with a sectional roof gives passengers a sense of spaciousness. The available 20-inch alloy wheels add to Palisade's flagship presence.

The power of Palisade comes from a 3.8-liter Atkinson-V6 CVVT twin-engined, direct injection engine for optimum power and efficiency. This 3.8-liter engine produces an estimated 291 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and approximately 262 lb-ft. torque at 5,000 rpm. Palisade offers more standard horsepower than any other SUV as a whole competitive and an unparalleled level of torque. Palisade provides this power to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with multiple-disc torque converter. It features HTRAC® two-wheel and four-wheel drive configurations, with a final gear ratio of 3.648 for assured acceleration. Special efforts have been made to reduce Palisade NVH, with generous insulation under the hood, special sound-absorbing mats and a powertrain adjuster offering a linear and smooth response. In addition, Palisade offers drivers the ability to start the vehicle via the remote keychain or via the Blue Link app.

GEOMETRY AND SUSPENSION FOCUS
The width of the front and rear suspension has been maximized on Palisade, for increased rigidity and stability of the bearing. The tires are a generous standard 245 / 60R18 or optional size 245 / 50R20 for stability, style and ride comfort. The Palisade front steering knuckles and rear brackets are aluminum, while the lower front arms have been optimized and lightened thanks to a new technical design, which has reduced unsprung weight and improved responsiveness. .
Palisade also achieves the best torsional rigidity of its body thanks to a variety of methods, including a multi-ring structure and hot-stamped door ring parts that offer increased strength and rigidity. In addition, its torsional rigidity, when it is equipped with a sunroof, is almost identical to that of the versions without sunroof.
HTRAC® WITH SNOW MODE
The Palisade is equipped with Hyundai's HTRAC® AWD system. The HTRAC AWD system was developed as a multi-mode system, providing a variable torque split electronic clutch with active torque control between the front and rear axles. Driver-selectable Normal, Sport and Smart HTRAC modes provide safe control in any weather. The Sport setting gives a more agile feel by sending more torque to the rear wheels for a sporty, dynamic feel when you want it. This system has a wider variability range of torque distribution than many competing systems and has been adapted to conditions such as straight-line acceleration, medium and high speed turns, and hill starts.
Palisade also offers a new snow mode developed on its advanced HTRAC® AWD system, with special traction control for snow, optimizing available traction and driver control under adverse conditions. The snow mode of the driving mode system adjusts the forward and reverse torque distribution, left and right wheel slip control, engine torque, and shift speeds based on available traction levels. In addition, the Palisade AWR HTRAC system includes an AWD lock differential function for difficult traction situations.
Palisade offers a number of advanced security technologies including forward collision avoidance assistance with pedestrian detection, blind spot collision avoidance assistance, lane assist assistance, collision avoidance assistance by backward traffic, safe exit assistance, high beam system, driver warning and Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go.

Help in collision avoidance by the traffic in the back (RCCA)
Standard assistance for Hyundai Rear Traffic Collision Avoidance (RCCA) improves driver visibility at the rear of the palisade. By using the Blind Spot Detection System's radar sensors in reverse, the system can not only warn the driver if the vehicles are approaching from behind, but also apply the brakes automatically.
Available security features include Rear Occupant Alert (ROA). The system monitors the rear seats with the help of an ultrasonic sensor that can detect the movements of children and pets. The system first reminds drivers to check the rear seats when exiting the vehicle with a message on the center dashboard display. If the system detects movement in the rear seats after the driver has left the vehicle and locks the doors, he will sound a horn and send a Blue Link alert to the driver's smartphone via the connected Hyundai Blue Link car system. The system is designed to prevent children and pets from being forgotten in the car, but it is also useful in case of accidental confinement of children.
Palisade also has a standard secure exit assistance system. To enhance the safety of Hyundai passengers, Safe Exit Assist uses a radar to detect cars coming from behind and warns passengers trying to get out of the vehicle. If a passenger tries to open the door when a car is approaching from the rear, a visual and acoustic warning on the central group will warn the driver. In addition, if the driver attempts to disable the electronic child safety lock function, the safe exit wizard takes precedence and ensures that the rear doors remain locked until the approaching vehicle have passed. Once clear of the road, the driver can deactivate the electronic child safety lock and successfully unlock the rear passenger doors.
In addition, Palisade has seven standard airbags: front, side, frontal, driver knee and rollover detection curtain airbags. Palisade uses a large full-length side curtain airbag, which includes a cover for third-row seats, which improves rear occupant protection in the event of a collision. Tire pressure monitoring with individual position display, anti-theft security, three second-row LATCH anchors, two third-row LATCH anchors and a reversing camera are also standard on Palisade.
Palisade has a very rigid structure, with the strategic use of advanced high strength steel (AHSS) in key suspension and accident zones to provide increased tensile strength. The use of advanced high-strength steel has several advantages: a lighter overall vehicle weight, increased strength and rigidity of the vehicle without the excessive costs of more exotic lightweight materials.
Palisade is expected to get the IHS TSP + and get the NHTSA's 5 star rating. The underbody and sturdy side structures are designed to increase the energy absorption and intrusion into the cabin during a serious collision, especially during the low overlap test. In addition, its base uses several charge paths to better disperse the potential energy during a crash collision.
BLUE LINK® CONNECTED CAR SYSTEM
Models equipped with Palisade Blue Link include three years of free Blue Link services, with enhanced security, diagnostics, remote maintenance and voice guidance services. Blue Link brings direct connectivity to the car through technologies such as remote start with climate control, remote door lock / unlock, car search, enhanced roadside assistance and vehicle salvage stolen. Blue Link features can be accessed through buttons on the rearview mirror, the MyHyundai.com web portal, MyHyundai smartphone app with Blue Link, the Amazon® Alexa Blue Link skill and the Google Assistant Blue Link app. Some features can also be controlled through Android Wear ™ and Apple Watch ™ Smartwatch applications.
