The Hyundai Palisade replaces the Santa Fe XL as Hyundai's large three-row crossover and offers the kind of features, comfort, and technology that usually only are seen in luxury vehicles. Of course, these features are divided up among the various trim levels available, and to help you understand what you get, Hiley Hyundai of Burleson is pleased to offer drivers in Burleson, Fort Worth, and Benbrook a look at some of what you get in the Hyundai Palisade trim levels.
There are only four Hyundai Palisade trim levels, but each is feature-packed. The base trim is the SE, the mid-range trim is the SEL, the luxury-oriented trim is the Limited, and the range-topper for this model year is the Calligraphy. All Hyundai Palisades are standard front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive as an option, and all are powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine. This gives you 291 horsepower and 292 lb-ft of torque and is also mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
At the SE trim level, you get 18-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, and LED headlights in the exterior. Inside, you get power-fold second-row seating and an infotainment system driven by an 8-inch touchscreen and offering full wireless smartphone pairing for Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®. Five USB ports allow for device charging, and the back seat quiet mode silences the speakers behind the front seats.
You also get active safety technology like automatic braking to kick in and help avoid front crashes, lane-keeping to make sure you stay centered in your lane, parking sensors in the rear to keep you alert of what's around you, and adaptive cruise control to keep you a safe distance from other vehicles.
At the SEL, you get all of the above plus keyless entry and ignition for convenience, a leather-wrapped steering wheel for comfort, an auto-dim rearview mirror to protect against glare, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Your driver's seat is now power adjustable with lumbar support, and you get heated front seats to stay cozy in winter. You also get second-row captain’s chairs.
As for safety at this level, you add a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alerts so you know what's in the area where you can't normally see. You can also add feature-rich packages like the Convenience package with bigger wheels, sound dampening tech, sunshades, parking sensors in front, and a household power outlet. The available Premium Package ups this to a heated steering wheel, driver memory settings, heated back seats, full leather upholstery, an upgraded 10.25-inch touchscreen, and other features.
As if you weren't already luxurious enough, with these trim levels you get features like a Harman Kardon 12-speaker premium sound system, configurable interior ambient lights, a head-up display, four-way lumbar support for the driver's seat, and even a blind-spot camera and top-down camera system. The Calligraphy trim gives you special exterior touches, a faux-suede headliner, and quilted door inserts made of leather.
