2022 New York Auto Show Week: Hyundai's Next Palisade Aims to Continue the Upscale Image

2022 new york auto show week hyundais next palisade aims to continue the upscale

Like its platform-mate, the Kia Telluride, the Hyundai Palisade is going under the knife, with the results planned for show at the 2022 New York Auto Show on Wednesday.

Come a few minutes to 10, Eastern time, the next Palisade will be seen completely uncovered. Hyundai is previewing a few changes: A wider grille, a new front-lighting look that includes vertical LED headlights, new alloy wheels, and….actually that’s it. For now.

Yeah, I know. Most auto journos hate teasers as much as you do — or rather, I, for one, wish I had more to share with you. But I don’t, since Hyundai is playing this close to the vest, as OEMs almost always do, and no little birds have been yapping to us off the record.

So, like with the Telluride (and Kia Niro), we’ll know the specifics at the same time you do.

Until then, I think it’s safe to say Hyundai wants to keep the premium-lux appearance of the Palisade, which has a more-urban aesthetic than the boxy/rugged Telluride. That certainly seems to be the case based on the teaser shot of the new headlights and wider grille.

All shall be revealed in just two days.

      @FreedMike Mine needed a new motor at 48k. Different strokes for different folks but I am firmly in the "they are $#!+" Camp.

    The people that paid a ridiculous ADM, for these, or most cars for that matter, will be in for a shock when things settle out. Cars that drive well and are somewhat reliable will have less buyers remorse. I get it, some people need a car now will make sacrifices to make that happen, but some are not aware what it will cost them in the end. My wife wanted a CRV, I bought her one. She loves it, I hate it. As long as the car does what the drivers want it to do, it’s a good purchase for them.

      I feel sorry for the folks who are stuck buying cars now.

  • 285exp I am quite sure that it is a complete coincidence that they have announced a $7k price increase the same week that the current administration has passed legislation extending the $7k tax credit that was set to expire. Yep, not at all related.
  • Syke Is it possible to switch the pure EV drive on and off? Given the wonderful throttle response of an EV, I could see the desirability of this for a serious off-roader. Run straight ICE to get to your off-roading site, switch over the EV drive during the off-road section, then back to ICE for the road trip back home.
  • ToolGuy Historical Perspective Moment:• First-gen Bronco debuted in MY1966• OJ Simpson Bronco chase was in 1994• 1966 to 1994 = 28 years• 1994 to now = 28 yearsFeel old yet?
  • Ronnie Schreiber From where is all that electricity needed to power an EV transportation system going to come? Ironically, the only EV evangelist that I know of who even mentions the fragile nature of our electrical grid is Elon Musk. None of the politicians pushing EVs go anywhere near it, well, unless they are advocating for unreliable renewables like wind and solar.
  • FreedMike I just don’t see the market here - I think about 1.2% of Jeep drivers are going to be sold on the fuel cost savings here. And the fuel cost savings are pretty minimal, per the EPA: https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/PowerSearch.do?action=noform&path=1&year1=2022&year2=2022&make=Jeep&baseModel=Wrangler&srchtyp=ymm&pageno=1&rowLimit=50Annual fuel costs for this vehicle are $2200 and $2750 for the equivalent base turbo-four model. I don’t get it.
