2021 Hyundai Palisade - 3rd Row SUV in Union, NJ

When the Palisade arrived in 2020, it gained attention as not just Hyundai's largest vehicle, but as a three-row midsize crossover SUV with multiple strengths backed by the automaker's hefty warranty. The Palisade is back for 2021 to continue being a top-level choice in its class.

What's New for the 2021 Hyundai Palisade?

The 2021 model year introduces the Calligraphy trim level, which replaces the Limited as the top-level model on the Hyundai Palisade.


The 2021 Hyundai Palisade presents a passenger volume of 155.3 cubic feet, which makes it among the roomiest vehicles in its class. If you go with the base SE model, the three-row configuration seats up to eight people. The other three trims swap the bench-style seat in the second row with a pair of captain's chairs to reduce maximum occupancy to seven.

Upgrade to the SEL trim if you want a leather-wrapped steering wheel, front-seat heating, and driver-side power adjustability. At the Limited trim level, Hyundai enhances the Palisade with Nappa leather seat trim, extension of power adjustability to the front passenger seat, driver's seat memory, steering-wheel heating, rear-seat heating and cooling, and front-seat cooling. The aptly named Calligraphy has unique quilted leather-door panels.


The powertrain on the 2021 Hyundai Palisade combines a 291-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 with an eight-speed automatic transmission for brisk acceleration, smooth shifts, and a maximum tow rating of 5,000 lbs. Go with the Calligraphy for standard all-wheel drive, which gives you maximum tire grip on the road; this drivetrain is optional on the other three trims.


A large vehicle with four doors, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade counts automatic LED headlights, heated power side mirrors, a rear wiper and washer, and 18-inch alloy wheels among its standard exterior features. Roof rails, a sunroof, and LED turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors appear at the SEL trim level. At the Limited trim level, the Palisade gains brighter and longer-lasting LEDs on the taillights (instead of the halogen light bulbs), a hands-free smart liftgate, dual panels for the sunroof, and 20-inch alloy wheels that replace the 18-inch ones. As the top-level trim, the Calligraphy stands out with its front and rear skid plates, side-mirror puddle lights, rear accent lighting, and side-door garnishes.

Comfort and Convenience

For infotainment, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade combines a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system, HD Radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, five USB ports, and an 8-inch touchscreen. There's a 7-inch digital display for providing vital driver information, and the cabin has Rear Seat Quiet Mode technology for muting speakers and promoting a serene experience for rear-seat passengers.

At the SEL trim level, automatic climate controls are extended to the rear-seat passengers, access and engine starting is made a lot easier with a proximity keyless entry system with push-button engine start, and auto-dimming ability and a garage-door opener are added on the rearview mirror. The Limited and the Calligraphy gain wireless charging ability, third-row USB ports, a trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio, a navigation system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen that replaces the 8-inch touchscreen, and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system.


Driver assistance on the 2021 Hyundai Palisade comes from adaptive cruise control, driver attention warning, forward collision assist, lane following assist, and lane-keeping assist. There's also a rearview camera with rear parking sensors for monitoring your parking maneuvers. Seven airbags are present to provide restraint and cushioning if there's a crash. A blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert is added at the SEL trim level. The Limited and Calligraphy gain a surround-view camera (in place of the rearview one), front parking sensors (in addition to the rear parking ones), ultrasonic rear occupant alert, and highway drive assist.
