2021 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Hyundai Palisade near Denver CO

2021 Hyundai Palisade Overview

The Palisade from Hyundai was an all-new nameplate for the 2020 model year. It was designed to replace the outgoing Santa Fe XL. This was to be Hyundai’s largest SUV yet, and it was a smash hit proving to be popular with consumers and critics alike. It was loaded with standard amenities and technologies, provided enough third-row legroom for adults and delivered ample cargo capacity as well. So, how could Hyundai top the 2020 Hyundai Palisade? It started by expanding the already fantastic standard equipment across all trim levels. Hyundai also introduced the Calligraphy with the 2021 Hyundai Palisade, which is its new top trim for the driver who wants it all and then some. With these changes in mind, let us review the 2021 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Hyundai Palisade near Denver.

The second row also features a one-touch button for more convenient third-row ingress and egress.
