Building a bit of hype before its official public release, Hyundai announced that its new three-row utility vehicle will be called Palisade.
When replacing the Santa Fe XL from the South Korean manufacturer, this vehicle showed the media selection, including AutoGuide.com, at a private event in Michigan at the beginning of today.
Aside from the name, the specific details about the Palisade, of their size and powertrains to the characteristics they offer will be strictly sealed, which means that we can not breathe a word about them at this time. Fortunately, you will not have to wait long to learn more about this vehicle. Its public debut is scheduled for the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show, which opens up on the media on November 28, just a couple of short weeks.
