The 2022 Hyundai Palisade is one of the best cars available in its class today. SUV enthusiasts certainly won’t be disappointed with any of its key features and quality design. Arriving in the fourth quarter of 2021, the Palisade has earned rave reviews across the board – but what makes it such a highly acclaimed option for potential buyers?
Let’s look at 5 reasons to buy the Hyundai Palisade.
- Solid value at every level
The 2022 Hyundai Palisade comes with four trim options and all of them represent great value. The standard Palisade has a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $34 375. The luxury Calligraphy trim is at the top of the price range with an MSRP starting at $43 000. However, whichever trim you look into, you’ll find it packed with features that more than justify the tag.
Other than built-in features, the different trims offer a variety of drivetrain options as well. The mid-range SEL and Limited trims have an all-wheel-drive option that’s perfect for navigating unpredictable weather.
- Strong performance
The base Hyundai Palisade produces 291 horsepower thanks to a 3.8-liter V6 engine. The Palisade’s eight-speed automatic transmission aids it with smooth acceleration, but performance enthusiasts can also look forward to optional steering wheel-mounted paddles.
All trims come standard with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is available in the SE, SEL, and Limited trims. The highest available trim – the Calligraphy – comes standard with all-wheel drive, and a host of head-turning features.
- Intuitive infotainment system
Speaking of features, the Palisade’s cabin is packed with them. Its intuitive infotainment system runs through an 8.0-inch touchscreen display that comes standard in the base trim. The SE and SEL trims also come standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth. The 8.0-inch touchscreen can be upgraded to a 10.3-inch display in the base and SEL trim, although it comes standard in the Limited and the Calligraphy.
The Palisade also makes use of Hyundai’s Blue Link service, which lets drivers control many key features using their mobile devices, including remotely locking and unlocking the doors.
- Excellent safety record
Keeping true to Hyundai’s design quality, the Palisade has an exceptional safety record, earning a perfect five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Although every trim comes packed with enough safety features to earn that rank, they can still be upgraded as buyers move up the trim levels.
Some standard safety features to look out for in the 2022 Hyundai Palisade include:
- Automated emergency braking
- Lane-keeping assist
- Lane-departure warning
- Adaptive cruise control
- Pedestrian detection
- Cabin design
As striking as the Palisade’s exterior looks are, it has just as much to offer inside. The Palisade’s cabin is incredibly spacious, with enough room for eight passengers in the SE and SEL trims. The Limited and Calligraphy trims still boast plenty of room, with enough seating for eight passengers.
The cabin’s design is sleek and open, with plenty of legroom and headroom in every row. A one-touch button in the second row also makes it easier than ever to move the middle seats so passengers can access the third row. Noise suppression ensures that you feel the road as little as possible on any journey.
All in all, the Hyundai Palisade represents great value for money – especially in the luxury trims like the Limited and Calligraphy. It’s a powerful, comfortable SUV with plenty of cabin space and an intuitive infotainment system to keep drivers and passengers satisfied.
