2021 Hyundai Palisade Adds Calligraphy Model

Aug 12, 2020

The 2021 Hyundai Palisade SUV—including the all-new Calligraphy model—began arriving at Hyundai dealerships earlier this summer. The 2021 Palisade underwent significant content repackaging to give buyers of all trim levels added comfort and convenience while streamlining shopper trim selections, Hyundai says.

Much of the former Drive Guidance package, including features such as a 10.25-inch navigation system, Highway Drive Assist, SiriusXM Radio, Blue Link and Driver Talk (in-car intercom system), has been added to the Premium package and above. Multiple Device Connection capability, HD radio and Wireless Smartphone Connectivity (for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) have been added to the SE model and above for vehicles without navigation.

Additionally, LED headlamps are now standard, while sunroof and LED map-interior lights have been added to the SEL model and above. Palisade trailer pre-wiring connectors, an important feature for those Palisade buyers who tow, has been upgraded from a four-pin connector to an enhanced seven-pin connector design. Finally, a premium mélange headliner has been added to the Premium package.

• HTRAC AWD with AWD Lock
