The 2023 Hyundai Palisade has finally been revealed. Hyundai actually revealed the most significant changes to its full-size SUV a few days ago, leaking the updated face in its live stream video preview. Now we have full disclosure, and the changes extend beyond the new cascading grid.
Cascading is what Hyundai calls it, but whatever it’s called, a wider grille with a thin wing at the top dominates the front clip of the Palisade. It sits above the new lower fascia and between the vertically oriented LED daytime running lights and a headlight cluster similar to the previous model. These are the only lights you’ll find at the front – unlike the Hyundai Tucson, this grille doesn’t include any lighting features.
Also unlike the Tucson, the rear of the Palisade doesn’t incorporate the split taillight design we’d like. In fact, Hyundai pulled a fast one with a heavy camo at the rear of the prototype, as it is nearly identical to the 2022 model. Changes are relegated to the lower fascia, which is redesigned with horizontal red reflectors incorporating reverse lights that span the width of the SUV. The square exhaust finish replaces the odd trapezoidal tip of the older model. It also sports new 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, completing the exterior updates.
This is breaking news. More information will be added as it becomes available.
