The Hyundai Palisade is likely to share engine from the upcoming sister SUV – Kia Telluride. It is expected to be powered by a 3.3-litre, twin-turbo V6 engine that churns out 365bhp of power and 510Nm of torque. The company is also likely to offer plug-in hybrid variant, which could feature a 270bhp, 3.5-litre, V6 petrol engine coupled to a 130bhp electric motor. For diesel driven markets, Hyundai could also opt for a more powerful version of the 2.2-litre diesel engine that currently powers the Santa Fe. The SUV will come equipped with a 8-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive system.
