Looks like Hyundai could be already working on the mid-cycle facelift for the Palisade SUV. Despite was launched 2 years ago, the picture showed a Hyundai Palisade under camouflage caught inside of a parking lot in South Korea. Apparently the design is the same so we could be in front of an early prototype.
The Palisade (codenamed as OL) is already available with two V6 gasoline engines, 3.5 and 3.8 MPi with 277 and 295 hp. It is also available with a diesel engine, the 2.2 R-Engine with 200 ps. When Hyundai launched the Palisade couldn’t be so sure that it will turn in a total success.
As these are the very first spy pictures of the Palisade facelift, we cannot say to much about what changes will have, if will have the same treatment as Santa Fe or Grandeur or instead that will receive a mild facelift. Hyundai could take advantage of this facelift and include a Hybrid variant like they did with the Santa Fe.
It is pretty difficult to see what’s under the heavy camouflage, but apparently there are no changes in the front bumper (we can see the same grille or headlights), and we don’t have any picture of the rear.
The Palisade facelift should receive latest safety pack, as well as new IT system and latest technologies we already have seen in models like GV80 or Grandeur.
Hyundai recently launched the Palisade Calligraphy trim in South Korea or United States with several updates and a higher quality interior.
