2023 Hyundai Palisade facelift unveiled with new design and new technology | Automotive News
The long-awaited 2023 Hyundai Palisade has finally been unveiled. The most significant modification to Hyundai’s full-size SUV was actually unveiled a few days ago when the company leaked the vehicle’s redesigned face in a live video preview. Hyundai’s flagship SUV receives a mid-cycle makeover that includes a new exterior look, redesigned interior and a range of new equipment.
The new model features a revised grille with a taller, wider and straighter “parametric” design, a new LED daytime running light character, more curved headlights and a redesigned front bumper. Unlike the grille of the Hyundai Tucson, this one does not have integrated lighting.
Only the new design of the alloy wheels distinguishes the new Palisade from the pre-facelift model in terms of side exterior appearance. Additionally, the rear end retains the majority of its original design cues, with the only notable exception being the reprofiled bumper. The new alloy wheels feature multi-spoke designs and are 20 inches in diameter.

Inside, a new steering wheel takes center stage, but the dashboard has also received a makeover. The relocation of the audio controls has been removed and the air conditioning vents have been merged into an attractive strip that runs from the instrument cluster to the door. Speaking of instruments, a “more spacious appearance” was achieved with the panel layout and the addition of new light fixtures.

The vehicle comes standard with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is an option.
