Introduced for the 2020 model year, the Palisade is a midsize 3-row crossover SUV. Changes for the 2021 Palisade include the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration for the base SE trim level, as well as the ability to pair more than one device to the SUV’s Bluetooth at the same time. Additionally, Hyundai makes LED headlights standard for the Palisade SE and the trailer pre-wiring connector is upgraded to a 7-pin rather than a 4-pin connection.

The popular Palisade SEL returns with a standard power sunroof and LED cabin lighting. Choose the optional SEL Premium Package and the SUV now includes an upgraded headliner plus the optional Drive Guidance Package. Those contents include a 10.25-inch infotainment system touchscreen display, SiriusXM satellite radio, a navigation system, Blue Link connected services with a free 3-year trial period, a Driver Talk in-car intercom system, and Highway Drive Assist (HDA). With HDA, the Palisade features adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability and lane-centering assistance.
