There are 197 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque available from the 2.2-liter inline-four engine.

In the United States, Hyundai does not provide customers with a selection of Palisade models equipped with different engines. In other parts of the world, however, Hyundai also offers a diesel engine, and PDriveTV has recently featured this alternative powertrain. Mid-cycle improvements to the model are highlighted in the new video, which also features an in-depth performance evaluation.

The 2023 Palisade is powered by a 2.2-liter inline-four diesel engine, which produces 197 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. The SUV’s all-wheel-drive system receives power from this engine, which is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. At 4,451 pounds, it’s not a lightweight vehicle (2,019 kilograms).

9.53 seconds were needed for the Palisade to reach 62 miles per hour in speed (100 kilometers per hour). That’s not fast, but consider that the Hyundai can carry up to eight people, and that its owners probably aren’t taking it to the drag strip every weekend. According to PDriveTV’s testing, the SUV can sprint the quarter mile in 16.91 seconds at 82.64 miles per hour (133.0 kph).

For the American market, the revised Palisade retains the 3.8-liter V6 of the 2022 version. The engine can send power to the front wheels or all four wheels and generates 291 horsepower (217 kW) and 262 lb-ft (355 Nm) of torque. Both the exterior and interior of the SUV were given a facelift by Hyundai.

The rugged XTR trim level was also added to the Palisade family by Hyundai. The car’s 20-inch wheels and grille both have a new dark finish, and that’s just one of many cosmetic changes. The base SE trim of the 2023 Palisade costs $34,950 in the United States, with the top-of-the-line Calligraphy costing $48,900. The $1,295 destination fee is not included.

The Hyundai Palisade’s diesel engine may make it a poor performer at the drag strip, but Hyundai didn’t build it for speed. It’s far too large, and the Palisade is responsible for other things. The SUV’s primary function is to swiftly and easily transport passengers from one place to another. When compared to other aspects of Palisade, a time of 9.53 seconds to reach 62 mph is relatively unimportant.
