We are going to please current customers and win new fans
Hyundai is working on an updated Palisade, with the brand’s vice president of product planning noting that it will be radically different from the current model.
The styling of new Hyundai models has changed dramatically in recent years, with the new approach culminating in the latest generation Santa Fe. The new SUV is completely different from its predecessors and has received chopped shapes.
During a recent interview at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Hyundai vice president of product planning Olabisi Boyle confirmed that a radical redesign of the Palisade is also in the works and that it should look very different from the Santa Fe.
“We’re also upgrading the Palisade,” she told Car Buzz. – I think you’ll be very excited. We want to take what fans love to the next level. I’m looking forward to it happening, but for now I have to restrain myself from saying too much.”
2025 Hyundai Palisade will be as radical as the new Santa Fe
Olabisi Boyle added that the visual changes made to the next-generation Palisade will be as dramatic as those introduced to the new Hyundai Santa Fe. Boyle didn’t specify a launch timeline for the new three-row SUV, but it’s worth noting that it’s only been 18 months since the current model received a major refresh.
Boyle expressed confidence in how customers will react to the radical new design: “I think we’re going to please current customers and win new fans. We did the research. We wanted an SUV made for America, built in America. It has a more muscular stance that tends to be a little boxier—more in line with what I think Americans expect from an SUV.”
