The 2022 Hyundai Palisade will be a carryover model seeing no significant changes except for the addition of more active safety features to the standard features list. As last year only, the Palisade received an all-new range-topping Calligraphy trim along with a few optional packages. With this the 2022 Palisade comes with a 291-hp, 3.6-liter V6 engine mated to a smooth-shifting gearbox with a choice of an FWD as well as an AWD configuration.

Overall Rating


For the 2022 model year, the Hyundai Palisade carries forward most of its features and traits that made it a success in the mid-size SUV segment. The trim lineup remains the same, with the same list of onboard features. The Palisade bears a close resemblance to its cousin, the Kia Telluride. Still, both the Korean bestsellers are fundamentally different in the sense that the Telluride is more geared for rugged terrains and better handling, while the Palisade offers a more upscale interior with comfortable ride quality. The big V6 engine under the hood of the Palisade makes sure you always have power on tap. Loaded with several feel-good features and gizmos, the Palisade offers never seen before features in the segment or at its price point. No doubt, it is tops the sales chart.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The 2022 Hyundai Palisade retains its familiar 3.8-liter naturally aspirated V-6 engine that develops 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Hyundai mates this engine to the same smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic gearbox. The engine sends power to the front wheels through its standard front-wheel drivetrain. Buyers can still opt for the more off-road capable all-wheel drivetrain which is available on all the trims by shelling out extra bucks. Being a big and bulky SUV the 2022 Palisade takes over seven seconds to hit go from 0-60 MPH which is on par with the segment. While it took another eight and a half seconds to cover a quarter-mile and hit a top speed of 140 MPH.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Engine Bay

The 2022 Palisade brings forth a selection of four driving modes Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Smart- all of which cater to the ride as per the driver’s preferences. All-wheel-drive variants get an additional Snow driving mode to traverse through thick snow. The Palisade is quite a capable workhorse as well, possessing the ability to tow 5,000 pounds when equipped with trailer-hitch. As for the ride quality the big Palisade sure handles like a boat when driven spiritedly as the suspensions setup is tuned for comfortable ride quality. As for braking, the 2022 Palisade stops sans drama, and under panic braking took 181 feet to stop from 70-0 MPH, which is at par with the segment.

Compared to the rivals, the Palisade is a bit on the lower end of the spectrum with a 0-60 MPH time of 7.2 seconds. Its powertrain often runs out of breath if you push it too far off its limits. The Nissan Pathfinder is the quickest to hit 60 MPH mak under seven seconds. While Palisade's cousin, the Telluride was one-tenth of a second quicker than it to reach 60 MPH. As for the powertrain, all the SUVs here offer a V6 although the Telluride and Palisade get bigger displacement engines. That being said, the Telluride here is the cheapest SUV with a V6 and a 7.1 seconds 0-60 MPH timing.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Fuel Economy

7.5/10

Since the standard powertrain remains unchanged, the 2022 Hyundai Palisade will have the same MPG ratings as last year. With the standard V6 and the front-wheel drivetrain, the 2022 Palisade can return 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. This lends the SUV a combined 22 MPG, which is an average figure by its segment standards. Switching to the all-wheel-drive variant sees some drop in the MPG figures. The Palisade AWD sees a reduced highway MPG of 24 and a combined 21 MPG. Luckily, the Palidsade’s fuel economy in the city remains the same for the AWD variant.

The 2022 Palisade is just about average in its segment when it comes to fuel economy. While the rivals Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota Highlander offer very competitive MPG figures. Out of which the Toyota Highlander offers the best gas mileage beating the Palisade by 2 MPG in the city and 3 MPG on the highway. While Telluride being powered by the same powertrain as the Palisade returns the same gas mileage.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Interior

9.0/10

Hyundai has tried keeping the Palisade's interior fresh for this year with a clean dashboard design and a refreshed cabin. The large center console fits all the knobs and audio controls in one place. A small center stack houses all the climate controls. The dashboard sports a horizontal layout, giving an ergonomic as well as upscale look. The SE and SEL trims can seat up to eight passengers with relative comfort.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Dashboard

The higher trim levels only fit seven passengers as standard while lower trims offer a seating capacity of eight as standard. Headroom and legroom are sufficient enough in the first two rows and surprisingly the third-row space is sufficient to comfortably sit adults for short rides.

 2022 Hyundai Palisade SUV infotainment screen

The Palisade includes a variety of gizmos to appeal to the tech-savvy driver. It includes an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple Carplay & Android Auto, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster on the Limited trim. While a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system is standard on Limited and above trims. The top-draw Calligraphy trim brings puddle lamps and a steering wheel covered with perforated leather seating surfaces.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Cargo Space

There is also plenty of space to store your luggage, with 18 cubic feet available behind the 3rd-row. Folding down the third-row grants you access to 46 cubic feet of space while folding both the 2nd and 3rd rows opens up a cargo space of 86 cubic feet.

It is quite a close battle in the interior dimensions between all the midsize SUVs in this head-to-head competition. The Palisade and the Telluride share the top spot here while the Nissan Pathfinder comes second-best. If not for the cramped thrid-rows eats the Highlander would have easily grabbed the second spot as it offers better legroom in the middle row seats compared to the Pathfinder. The trunk capacity of the Palisade just falls short of its twin, the Kia Telluride, and other rivals as well. Kia offers the best-in-class cargo capacity of 21 cubic feet behind the third row of seats.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Exterior

9.0/10

The 2022 Hyundai Palisade hits the ball out of the park with its unconventional yet eye-catchy exterior design. Viewers will easily distinguish the all-new chrome trim accents, which add a lot of character to the massive SUV. The massive honeycomb grille joined by attractive LED headlights showcases the brute persona of the Palisade. You can customize your Palisade with Convenience and Premium packages that offer an array of options. 

 2022 Hyundai Palisade SUV

Buyers also get a taste of different styling elements through the different trims. For starters, the SE and SEL trims get 18-inch alloy wheels. The Calligraphy and the Limited trim levels ride on more stylish diamond-cut 20-inch alloy wheels. The Calligraphy trim gets a custom treatment of its own, with its own LED signature front fascia and a large central LED brake light to distinguish itself from the rest.

The Palisade’s exterior dimensions are almost similar to most of its rivals. However, the Toyota Highlander is relatively smaller in length and as a result, gets a smaller wheelbase compared to the other three SUVs. When comparing the curb weight of the SUVs in the competition, Nissan Pathfinder is the heaviest and still manages to outperform the rivals in the acceleration timing department.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Competition

8.5/10

2022 Hyundai Palisade vs 2022 Kia Telluride

These two SUVs are identical twins from the same family but yet sport several noticeable differences. Visually, the Kia Telluride has more squared-off looks than the Palisade that may appeal to the classic SUV enthusiast. The Palisade has a smoother ride quality over rough surfaces, while the Telluride has a stiffer and more rugged ride.

2022 Kia Telluride

The Palisade is more diverted towards the opulent side than the Telluride, while the latter has the advantage with better handling and slightly more cargo space. In the end, it all comes down to brand preference.

2022 Hyundai Palisade vs 2022 Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder leaves the Palisade tasting the dust in terms of outright acceleration, towing capability, and fuel economy. Also, the Pathfinder is just better in terms of maneuverability and handling than the boat-like driving Palisade. While the Palisade’s tech suite offers a more driver-centric and intuitive than the one on the Pathfinder.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder

In the cargo department, both the SUVs are neck-to-neck, although the Palisade emerges as the clear winner in terms of overall cabin space. However, if you consider the overall style quotient, affordability, and value-for-money, the Palisade comes out on top over the Pathfinder. Although if you can ignore a couple of its cons then the Pathfinder isn't a bad option either.

2022 Hyundai Palisade vs 2022 Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander has been a value-for-money proposition in its segment, thanks to its trusted brand reputation, and good resale value. The Palisade has its perks like three years of free maintenance to compete against Toyota’s reliability. The Palisade is also the more luxurious of the duo with more tech features than the Highlander to appeal to the tech-savvy driver.

2022 Toyota Highlander

The Highlander may have the edge in terms of fuel economy, but the Palisade is simply the better option to drive your family in style and comfort. As it offers more space and overall a pliant ride quality which is missing on the Highlander.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Final Verdict

8.5/10

The 2022 Hyundai Palisade is a jack-of-all-trades, offering all the positive traits of an excellent SUV available at a bargain price range for families. Although the powertrain remains unchanged, the Palisade is still the best bet in the three-row crossover segment. As an added plus Hyundai has given the Palisade a plethora of standard gizmo and safety techs. The three-row SUV sports roomy interior and cargo space to justify itself as a splendid weekend ride for families. Moreover, with Hyundai’s excellent warranty terms and customer service on the line, the Palisade emerges as a well-rounded SUV in its segment.
