The all-new Hyundai Palisade is the third new three-row SUV to hit the market for 2020. Following the redesigned Ford Explorer and all-new Kia Telluride, it would be easy for the Palisade to get lost in this segment. But with its modern styling and technology, the Palisade manages to stand out — and speaking of standing out, our First Drive of the 2020 Palisade climbs to No. 2 on our list of the top five Cars.com videos this week.

Cars.com reviewer Brian Wong said the Palisade drives similar to its close relative and powertrain twin, the Telluride.
“Under the hood is the same 3.8-liter V-6, making 291-horsepower, and it comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission,” Wong said. “The Palisade rides and drives very confidently. There’s enough power from the engine that it doesn’t feel super-taxed in getting the Palisade up to speed, which is impressive for such a large vehicle as this.”
But the Palisade isn’t just a more modern-looking version of the Telluride. Wong said there are plenty of features — like optional power third-row seats and an all-digital display cluster up front — that set the Palisade apart.
