New Hyundai Palisade For Sale in Knoxville

2023 Palisade: Hyundai's Flagship SUV, Enhanced

The Hyundai Palisade has been a favorite of critics and customers alike since its 2020 debut, earning extensive acclaim for its ability to deliver a class-above driving experience beyond what its price tag may suggest. The Palisade provides upscale accommodations, abundant amenities, cutting-edge technologies, and elegant yet assertive style. And for the 2023 model year, Hyundai has given its three-row midsize SUV a midcycle refresh, offering the design appeal and features to match its flagship status.

Design and Interior

The 2023 Palisade receives an updated exterior aesthetic evocative of its flagship position. Vertically connected LED composite lights frame the new cascading grille design, highlighting Palisade's more squared-off angles. A broader stance, extended hood profile, and straked skid plate detailing add the finishing frontend touches, emphasizing the SUV's impressive presence on Maryville roads.

Inside the cabin, Palisade remains open and inviting, exhibiting refined design elements, high-quality materials, and seamlessly integrated controls. The roomy cabin provides ample accommodations for up to eight passengers (seven with second-row captain's chairs), reserving 18 cubic feet for cargo behind the third row and 45.8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. And when your Farragut travels require maximum carrying capacity, you can fold all rear seats to access a cavernous 86.4 cubic feet.

The 2023 model year introduces a newly available Ergo-motion driver's seat with integrated massage to help reduce driving fatigue on longer journeys. Additionally, the second- and third-row seats gain option ventilation and heat, respectively.


Despite its larger dimension, the 2023 Palisade has plenty of internal motivation to get up to speed quickly and confidently. Under the hood, a 3.8-liter direct-injected V6 sends 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through a precise and responsive 8-speed automatic transmission. And for Oak Ridge drivers seeking enhanced handling and inclement-weather control, Hyundai's HTRAC® All-Wheel-Drive system is available across the Palisade lineup.

Introduced for 2023, HTRAC AWD models include a new Tow Mode that adjusts the powertrain profile when trailering, allowing Palisade to better maintain its optimal powerband. When properly equipped, Palisade can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Infotainment and Safety Technology

The 2023 Palisade retires the previous generation's 8-inch and available 10.25-inch touchscreens, replacing both with a newly standard high-resolution 12.3-inch navigation display on all models-a perfect match for the available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The 2023 Palisade also adds a standard Wi-Fi hotspot and a faster wireless charging capability. And Hyundai's innovative Remote Smart Parking Assist appears for the first time in the Palisade lineup.

The Hyundai Palisade has never compromised on passenger safety. The 2023 model is no different, offering a comprehensive suite of the latest driver-assistance technologies. Most are included as standard across the lineup. Highlights include:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Intersection Assist
  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Lane Following Assist

Driving dynamics

The editors at Car and Driver have speculated on whether the Hyundai Palisades V6 engine was capable of handling itself well in a sprint. When they did a 2020 comparison run, the Hyundai Palisade showed considerable oomph by making a zero-to-60 run in a brisk 6.9 seconds. The editors expect a similar result for the 2023 model and we believe drivers in Knoxville and Maryville TN will be pleased.

Fuel economy

The EPA estimates that the 2023 Hyundai Palisade with front wheel drive will earn 19 MPG on city streets and 27 MPG on the highway. If you go for the extra traction of all-wheel drive, you get the same gas mileage in the city and your highway efficiency drops just a bit to 25 MPG. For families who want to save on gas in a high inflation world, the new 2023 Hyundai Palisade will come through for you.

Technology enhancements

The editors at Motor Trend expect that families will be happy to find a Wi-Fi hotspot in the new Hyundai Palisade. Through a partnership with Verizon, drivers can now connect as many as five devices at once. You'll get a three month trial for free, and then this feature will cost $20 a month after that. There is now a new digital key that lets Apple and Samsung phone users lock, unlock and start the new Palisade with their phones.

An exterior design statement

The new 2023 Hyundai palisade is now exhibiting a bolder, more confident outward personality. The front displays a tastefully designed, very imposing grille that looks like it's not taking any prisoners. This new 2023 Hyundai Palisade definitely isn't going to blend in on the roadways around Tennessee and neither will you.
