What’s New for 2023?

A facelift for the 2023 model year to gives the Palisade a more squared-off appearance. The new look is enhanced by updated wheel designs and the cabin has received some new features. The Palisade’s instrument panel has a higher-resolution 12.0-inch infotainment display, a redesigned steering wheel, and updated upholstery options. New features include a Wi-Fi hotspot, heated third row seats, and a massaging driver’s seat. A rugged-looking XRT model joins the lineup and comes with 20-inch wheels, blacked-out exterior trim, and other design flourishes. The Palisade’s biggest competitor has always been the mechanically similar Kia Telluride, but that model is also due for a refresh this year, which means the rivalry is sure to continue.
