The All New 2021 Hyundai Palisade


The all-new 2021 Hyundai Palisade is out and turning heads all over town and for all the right reasons. The Palisade is loaded with power, packed with comfortable and convenient amenities, and loaded with all the latest technology inside and out. If you're in the market for a mid-size SUV, then your search is over. Here's a look at some of the best features everyone's talking about on the 2021 Hyundai Palisade.

Exterior Style
At Hamilton Hyundai in Chambersburg, PA, we have the largest selection of Palisades in the region. We invite you to come to see the signature style of Hyundai's premium SUV. Four trims are available on the Palisade, giving you plenty of options. Yet they all share a wide, powerful stance. The Palisade's bold front end is centered on the stylish silver finish grille framed by the LED lighting system. Strong lines are accented by soft curves for an elegant posture.

The SE is the base model trim and comes nicely equipped with 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, and LED accent lighting. Heated body-color exterior mirrors, body-color door handles, a silver finished front grille, and privacy glass add to the premium look.

Next up is the SEL trim which adds to the SE items with premium touches like door handle welcome lights, LED interior cabin lights, LD turn signal indicators on your side mirrors, and satin chrome door handles. You'll also get a conventional sunroof, roof rails, and proximity key entry with push-button start. SEL trims also give you access to the Convenience and Premium option packages.

Hyundai's Limited trim ups the premium style with additions like 20-inch wheels, LED taillights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a dual-panel sunroof. You'll also get the hands-free quick-open, auto-open smart liftgate with adjustable height settings.

Calligraphy is the top trim for the Palisade and adds to the above features with luxury points like side mirror approach lights, premium rear accent lighting, and a premium front grille. It also comes with premium front and rear skid plates and premium side door garnishes.

Interior Style
Inside the SE you'll find comfortable cloth seating, and a six-way power-adjustable front driver's seat, 60/40 split/folding third-row seats, and sliding one-touch second-row seats with power cargo area releases. It also features an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment hub with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability.

Next up is the SEL trim with interior features like an eight-way power with a two-way lumbar driver's seat. It also has heated front seats and second-row captain's chairs. You'll also get the auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, dual auto temperature control with a clean air ionizer, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Hyundai's Limited trim comes standard with Napa Leather seating. It also has a four-way lumbar driver's seat with leg cushion extensions. The front seats add ventilation, plus it adds heated and ventilated rear seats. It also comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

Calligraphy is the luxury trim. It adds sophisticated features like quilted leather door panels, a microfiber headliner, and a heated perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel. It also includes ambient lighting in 64 colors.

Power to Perform
Every 2021 Hyundai Palisade is powered by a 3.8-liter V-6 engine with a 24-valve dual continuously variable valve timing Atkinson Cycle valve train and gasoline direct injection fuel system. Hyundai pairs this engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC technology. It also includes a transmission cooler. Together this powertrain gets 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

Front-wheel drive is standard on the Palisade's lower trims. An HTRAC all-wheel-drive system is standard on the Calligraphy and available on the lower trims as an upgrade.  Your Palisade will come pre-wired for trailer towing, features a trailer sway control system, and can haul up to 5,000 pounds.

Hyundai Smart Sense
Now your Palisade can come equipped with Hyundai's Smart Sense, a suite of driver-assist technology. It's designed to make driving easier and help you stay safe. The suite includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection. This system uses advanced radar and optical sensors to watch the road ahead. When it detects a possible collision with a vehicle or pedestrian it will alert you. If you fail to react in time the system will apply emergency braking to help avoid a potential accident.

A Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go system uses similar technology to keep your Palisade at a preset speed and distance to the vehicle ahead. The system will automatically slow you down, even to a complete stop. When the way ahead clears it will return you to your preset speed and distance.

The Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist system gives you eyes where you normally can't see. When it detects a vehicle in your blind spot while changing lanes it will apply light brake pressure.

Your forward optical sensors will track your Palisade within marked lanes as part of the Lane Keeping Assist system. When it detects a drift, it will alert you with visual and audio cues. If you fail to react it will provide gentle steering correction to assist you back into your lane. A Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist system will alert you when a vehicle crosses behind you while in reverse. 

All-new for the 2021 Hyundai Palisade is an Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert system. Once the engine is turned off the system scans the rear seats for passengers or pets. If it detects any movement it will honk the horn, flash the lights, and send you an alert to your smartphone through SmartLink.
