The Palisade is an all-new nameplate from Hyundai. It takes the place of the Santa Fe XL, which was a three-row variant of the Santa Fe Sport. This divergence allows Hyundai to focus on what is important to consumers in the market for a midsize three-row crossover rather than attempt to balance the needs and preferences of two distinct customer bases. For the initial generation, Hyundai is offering the Palisade in three distinct trim levels and with a broad slate of optional items and groups. These 2020 Hyundai Palisade trim levels are the base SE, the up-level SEL and the range-topping Limited. With that in mind, let us explore these trim levels and features and examine the important differences.
The 2020 Hyundai Palisade available at Hyundai of Anderson serving Anderson Spartanburg Greenville South Carolina is a three-row midsize SUV. The base drivetrain is front-wheel drive, but you can opt for all-wheel drive at all trim levels. The vehicle has but a single powertrain: a 3.8L V6 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This V6 makes 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The Palisade can seat either seven or eight depending on whether you opt for captain’s chairs or a bench in the second row. The available cargo volume is 18.0 cubic feet behind the third row, 45.8 behind the second row and 86.4 behind the first. The standard equipment package is quite robust. Inside, you get an 8-inch HD color touchscreen, three USB ports up front, two USB ports in the back, push-button ignition, a 60/40-split folding third row and a power-folding second-row bench. Outside, you get rear parking sensors, heated side mirrors and remote keyless entry. The base driver assistance group includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, lane keeping assistance and much more.
The SEL adds remote ignition, roof rails, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power-adjustable driver’s seat and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. At no additional cost, it upgrades the basic air conditioning system to a dual-zone automatic climate control system and upgrades the second-row bench to premium captain’s chairs. This trim also expands the driver assistance package with a blind-spot monitoring system. There is an optional Convenience Package available for the SEL. It adds a power liftgate, front parking sensors, wireless device charging, additional rear USB ports, a household-style outlet and an auto-leveling rear suspension. Opting for the Convenience Package gives you access to a Premium Package that adds leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, heated seats in the second row, a 10.25-inch color HD touchscreen, a built-in navigation system and many other items.
The Limited is the most robust of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade trim levels. It includes almost all of the standard and optional equipment mentioned for the SE and SEL, and the includes both the Convenience Package and the Premium Package at no additional charge. It also includes items that are not available at the lower trim levels. The upholstery is upgraded to premium leather. The second and third rows get seat ventilation.
