You can watch the livestream reveal on April 13 starting at 9:45 AM Eastern Daylight Time.
For the drastically redesigned 2023 Hyundai Palisade, we’ve seen lots of spy shots and even a handful of teasers. The three-row SUV’s new design will be unveiled on April 13 at the 2022 New York Auto Show, but Hyundai doesn’t appear to be waiting that long. The manufacturer has a YouTube livestream video reveal lined up, and the preview image shows the full rig.
We say almost because some things are left to the imagination. Things get a little darker at the back, and since this is a front perspective, we have no idea what’s going on there. The 2018 Palisade is expected to include a split taillight design similar to the Tucson, with a red LED strip covering the rear gate. Dual apertures in the covers have been seen in prototypes with thick camouflage, but our only evidence of the connecting strip is that it’s a typical design feature on the Tucson.

We don’t need to guess about the Palisade’s new appearance any longer. The top of the grille has thin wings that look like lighting elements, although we don’t know for sure if they’re real lights. The outgoing Palisade’s vertically oriented, boomerang-shaped running lights are identical, but they are relocated to the outside of the headlamp cluster on the fascia. The entire look is of an extremely squared, blunt front clip, which has a strong resemblance to Tucson. However, the Palisade’s execution is distinct, allowing it to stand out as Hyundai’s flagship vehicle.

What other changes are in store? Previous spy photos suggest there will be only minor changes to the interior. Similarly, we haven’t heard of anything significant happening with Palisade powertrain options. In the US, that’s a 3.8-liter V6 good for 291 horsepower (217 kilowatts) that turns only the front wheels in standard configuration, with all-wheel-drive optional. It’s quite possible Hyundai will eventually offer a hybrid version of the Palisade further down the road.
