  • Powerful V6 paired with eight-speed automatic
  • Class-leading fuel economy
  • Excellent towing and towing capabilities
  • Nothing in particular


In full-boat Limited trim, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is luxurious enough to turn Hyundai's Genesis dealers green with envy. Power comes exclusively from a 3.8-liter naturally aspirated V6 paired to an eight-speed automatic. It's no heavy-duty rig, but it pulls up with strong towing numbers for this class.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.



Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The Palisade offers an exemplary cabin that's loaded with class-above materials. The main cupholders feature a spring-loaded retractable brace that can be folded out of the way. There's 18 cubic feet behind the third row, 45 with the way-backs stowed, or over 86 with two rows flat.

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The new Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy looks and feels like a luxury vehicle. The 3.8-liter V6 engine makes 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Despite the luxury trimmings, this vehicle's fuel economy doesn't suffer. Eschewing all options, an entry-level 2021 Hyundai is an entirely reasonable $33,700.

Sentiment Score[*] 72%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
Palisade's MacPherson Strut front suspension and self-leveling rear setup make for an excellent ride. The beauty of the Palisade is that its value proposition actually improves as you go up in trim level. Hyundai's 10-year, 10,000-mile powertrain warranty is known industry-wide as one of the most generous.

  • Power-folding third row
  • Competitively priced
  • Good infotainment
