Minivans used to be the go-to vehicles for people with large families. However, as with many other vehicle types, SUVs have replaced them due to their exceptional versatility. The 2024 Hyundai Palisade is a great example of an SUV that can do everything a minivan does and more, and it’s the ideal choice in Alabama if you need a vehicle with a few extra seats.
Although it’s relatively new on the market, having debuted in 2020, Hyundai’s forward-thinking and long-standing commitment to excellence made the Palisade a top player in its category from day one. Here at Hyundai of Auburn, we match their high standards regarding quality and customer care. Consider us for your next vehicle purchase.
If you’re looking for a three-row SUV that’s both functional and stylish, the 2024 Hyundai Palisade has everything you need. Although it’s still in its first generation, Hyundai managed to add all the elements that made other large SUVs successful over the years while also adding some special features of its own. Hyundai even packed the standard model with useful features, while the higher trims reach the highest standards of luxury and comfort, for you and your passengers. With a starting price of $36,400, it’s also more affordable than many of its competitors.
The 2024 Hyundai Palisade is available in five distinct trims.
Despite being the 2024 Hyundai Palisade base trim, you wouldn’t know it by simply looking at its list of standard features. Some of its exterior amenities are the 18-inch alloy wheels, auto-dimming side mirrors, and LED headlights. On the inside, the height-configurable driver’s seat and second-row bench seats with a power-folding option make the PALISADE both comfortable and useful. There are also plenty of modern tech features available, such as the large 12.3-inch touch-screen interface, USB ports for both the first and second rows, and smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The next trim builds on the SE by adding some comfort-boosting features. Instead of the cloth upholstery on the standard trim you get synthetic leather, and the front seats are both heated and power-adjustable. Also, the roof rails and hands-free liftgate make it easier to pack for road trips. If you choose the SEL trim you can also go for the Premium package. Some of the features it includes are:
The following two trims include all features from the SE and SEL trims while adding some of their own. The XRT trim includes specially designed 20-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof, and black skid plates for both front and back. The Limited trim comes with style and functionality upgrades, such as leather upholstery and a head-up display system that uses the windshield to display relevant information.
The top-of-the-line trim introduces even more features and gives the 2024 Hyundai Palisade a unique look. You can choose the Calligraphy Night Edition, which introduces black elements such as the grille, roof rails, wheels, skid plates, and even the interior leather. Some of the features it adds are touch-screen-control climate functions, a digital display rearview mirror, and a massage function for the driver.
Despite its size, the 2024 Hyundai Palisade can reach 60 mph from a standstill in only 7.6 seconds. It does so thanks to its powerful 3.8-liter V-6 engine, which can produce up to 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. However, SUV buyers are also looking for other performance indicators, such as cargo space and towing capacity.
The PALISADE has a generous 18 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row and a cavernous 86.4 cubic feet with both bottom rows folded down. It can safely tow up to 5,000 pounds, meaning that you can take a trailer or a boat with you on your trips.
No modern vehicle is complete without excellent safety features, particularly one that’s specifically designed to carry large families around. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the 2023 Palisade a maximum five-star overall front safety rating, and the 2024 model will likely receive the same mark, since there are no major differences between the two model years. The Palisade also comes with a long list of driver aids to help you avoid any potential road situation, even in its standard trim. Some standard safety features are:
Features, performance, and safety are obviously important but many of us also want a vehicle that we enjoy looking at, both inside and out. The 2024 Hyundai Palisade ticks all these boxes. Although it’s not too different from the 2023 edition, it’s still a modern and stylish vehicle and is available in the following colors: Abyss Black Pearl, Steel Graphite, Robust Emerald, Typhoon Silver, Moonlight Cloud, Sierra Burgundy, and Hyper White.
Its design also manages to blend looks with utility and ease of use, especially on the interior. Every function is easily accessible, and there are plenty of small storage spaces throughout the cabin.
