As mentioned in the previous article, an 8-seat Hyundai SUV is being built to sit above the Santa Fe. At present, the new SUV hasn’t got an official name yet. However, according to the latest car news, Hyundai has trademarked a name for its new car with the US Patent and Trademark Office. Now we can call it - the “Hyundai Palisade”.

The name means a strong wooden or iron fence pillar used to guard a place or person against being attacked. It seems to be matched with this large and athletic 8-seat Hyundai SUV.
Still, there is little information about the new Hyundai Palisade, but some reports reveal that it will be developed by the identical platform to the Kia Telluride concept’s production variant. Accordingly, it is likely a 3-row SUV powered by a petrol engine without all-wheel drive system.
