Hyundai is gearing up to introduce the all-new Palisade on November 28th, but that hasn’t stopped the company from releasing a revealing new teaser image.
As part of the company’s “Always Remarkable” launch campaign for the Palisade, Hyundai has enlisted South Korean boy band BTS to serve as global brand ambassadors for the flagship crossover. That’s certainly an odd choice for an American-focused model, but the image does give us a better look at the upcoming crossover which will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show tomorrow afternoon.
As you can see in the image, the Palisade features a prominent grille which resides above a faux silver skid plate and plastic body cladding. While members of BTS largely hide the front of the crossover, the model appears slightly different than the purportedly leaked image that surfaced earlier this month.
In that image, the Palisade had a chrome grille surround and five horizontal bars. The official image, on the other hand, shows a mesh grille which is similar to the one used on the Santa Fe. It’s possible the differences could be chalked up to different trim levels, but we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
Regardless, the Palisade follows in the footsteps of the HDC-2 Grandmaster concept but adopts more conservative bodywork. The crossover also has pronounced wheel arches and a number of metallic accents.
Hyundai has been tight-lipped on specifics, but the automaker has already confirmed the Palisade will have “commodious cargo space” as well as seating for up to eight people. The company has also said drivers can expect premium materials, intuitive technologies and intelligent safety features.
Full details will be released tomorrow, but Hyundai has already announced the Palisade will go on sale in the United States next summer.
