Hyundai has announced the name of its upcoming flagship SUV – Palisade. Palisade, like other recent Hyundai models, draws its inspiration from a series of coastal cliffs and the Pacific Palisades, a high-end neighbourhood in Southern California.
The upcoming Palisade SUV will sit at the top of Hyundai’s hierarchy, above the 7-seater Santa Fe. Hyundai also confirmed that its new Palisade will be an 8-seater model and will feature a wide array of safety equipment. Powertrain details are expected to be made known when the model is launched later this month.
Hyundai will premiere the new Palisade at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show on 28th November, before hitting showrooms in summer 2019.
Other Hyundai models that are inspired by locations around North America include Kona, Santa Fe, and Tucson.
