To start with, how about we recap the nuts and bolts, just as what changes for the 2020 Hyundai Palisade you’ll discover at your nearby vendor. All models get three columns of seating, with limit with regards to seven or eight travelers, contingent on arrangement and trim level. Sizewise, it’s privilege in accordance with the current Honda Pilot long and width, while the Ford Explorer and Nissan Pathfinder are both somewhat more. Inside space profits by the Palisade’s long 114.2-inch wheelbase, and the Hyundai tops its opposition for second-push legroom and is bested distinctly by the Explorer and Pilot in third-push legroom.
The fundamental spot our Palisade contrasts from the Korean-showcase model I drove before is the motor: U.S. models get a 3.8-liter direct-infused gas V6 coupled to an eight-speed programmed transmission. The V6 utilizes hardware and extravagant valve control to play out a flawless trap: When it can, it works on what’s known as the Atkinson cycle, which by and large methods better mileage to the detriment of low-end torque. Be that as it may, when torque is required, during increasing speed, towing or something like that, the motor changes back to a traditional Otto cycle, which consumes more fuel yet gives great punch. With 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, the Palisade’s V6 is in accordance with aggressive non-turbocharged motors, and its 19/26/22 mpg city/roadway/joined front-drive efficiency rating is focused. Should you need the accessible all-wheel-drive framework, it’s offered at all trim levels for an extra $1,700 in addition to a slight (19/24/21) efficiency punishment.
