2025 Hyundai Palisade Interior: A Luxurious and Spacious SUV – The Hyundai Palisade is a mid-size SUV that debuted in 2020 and received a facelift in 2023. For the 2025 model year, Hyundai is planning to introduce a new generation of the Palisade with some significant changes and improvements. According to some reports, the next Palisade will have:
– A longer wheelbase and a more spacious interior
– A hybrid powertrain option with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine
– A turbocharged 3.5-liter engine replacing the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter engine
– A level 3 self-driving system and over-the-air updates
– A redesigned exterior and interior with premium materials and features
Design: Exterior and Interior
The exterior design of the 2025 Palisade will likely be influenced by Hyundai’s latest design language, which features a bold and distinctive front grille, sleek LED headlights, and a sleek body. The new Palisade will also have a longer wheelbase than the current model, which measures 196.7 inches (4995 millimeters). This will result in a more spacious and comfortable interior for up to eight passengers.
The interior of the 2025 Palisade will offer a luxurious and ergonomic cabin with high-quality materials, soft-touch surfaces, and attention to detail. The dashboard’s layout and appearance will give off an upscale vibe. At the same time, optional options like panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated seats, and an advanced infotainment system will improve the whole driving experience.
The infotainment system of the next Palisade will include a touchscreen display and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with a user-friendly interface. Higher trims will often have larger screens and additional advanced tech options. The new Palisade will also have a level 3 self-driving system, which means it can handle most driving tasks under certain conditions, but the driver still needs to be alert and ready to intervene. The new Palisade will also support over-the-air updates, meaning it can receive software updates remotely without visiting a dealership.
The new Palisade will offer three seats, with comfortable seating in all rows. Some models will offer captain’s chairs in the second row for added luxury and convenience. The third-row seats will provide enough space for adults, unlike some competitors. The cargo space will also be generous, with up to 86.4 cubic feet (2446 liters) of space when the second and third rows are folded down.
Two engine options for the 2025 Palisade will be available: a 2.5-liter gasoline hybrid powertrain and a 3.5-liter turbocharged engine that will replace the 3.8-liter normally aspirated engine. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and a battery pack will be combined to create the hybrid powertrain, providing about 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet (353 Newton-meters) of torque. The hybrid powertrain will offer improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions than the conventional engines.
The turbocharged 3.5-liter engine will be similar to the one used in the Genesis GV80, producing around 375 horsepower and 391 pound-feet (530 Newton meters) of torque. This engine will offer more power and performance than the current 3.8-liter engine, which produces 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet (355 Newton-meters) of torque. All-wheel or front-wheel drive will be available for both engines and an eight-speed automated gearbox.
Release Date and Price
According to some reports, the 2025 Hyundai Palisade is expected to enter production in January 2025, representing a two-month delay caused by a reevaluation of the project. The new Palisade is rumored to hit the US market in June of the same year, potentially as a 2026 model-year vehicle.
The price of the new Palisade is not yet known, but it will likely be higher than the current model, which starts at $33,700 for the base SE trim and goes up to $47,900 for the top-of-the-line Calligraphy trim. The new Palisade will compete with other mid-size SUVs such as the Kia Telluride, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, Chevrolet Traverse, Volkswagen Atlas, Subaru Ascent, Mazda CX-9, Nissan Pathfinder, Dodge Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee L, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave, Volvo XC90, Audi Q7, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Lexus RX.
