2022 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy // America’s Most Luxurious Family SUV! (with VALUE, too!)

what’s going on youtube so hyundai has been killing it recently when it comes to crossovers and suvs having the full gamut of options going all the way from the venue to this large three-row pallet sink for 2022 their largest and most luxurious family three row adds more standard equipment to sweeten the package so with what was already considered one of the best three rows on the market did these updates make it even better let’s get right into the review and find out [Music] [Music] all right so let’s kick this review off with the exterior design of course you’re not going to see any significant changes this year actually last year a lot of the grill options did actually get updated including for this calligraphy trim level which was a new addition to the lineup last year this is going to have an exclusive grill finish as you can see inside you have kind of these detailed looking triangle shapes just has a little bit more pizzazz than the standard chrome mesh finish and of course you’ve got this nice thick satin silver accent that runs through here as well as exclusive satin silver bumper finish on this lower part of the fascia now let’s go ahead and talk about the headlights though because this is of course the area that really draws a lot of attention for being unique you basically have a two-part set up here so across the top here you’re going to have your led daytime daytime running light and your turn signal and then that daytime running light is going to extend all through here all the way down and kind of wrap around so this is a really cool look especially at night and then let’s talk about the main headlight unit itself so you’ve got stacked full led headlights and these are actually going to be included as standard equipment on every single model including the base one another one of the ways you’re going to know this is a calligraphy trim level is by the wheels the calligraphy comes with these very unique looking multi-spoke alloys with a lot of contrast finish lines in it they go in all types of different directions this is certainly a very unique looking wheel that really stands out the limited also has 20 inch wheels they look a little bit more conservative than this and then you have 18 inch wheels on the lower two trim levels and coming up here to our mirrors we do have new additional features for 2022 that’s the fact that you have this very interesting led turn signal indicator as standard equipment now as well as blind spot monitoring is now standard equipment with the base se all of the mirrors will be heated but none of them have power folding or auto dimming now here at the side of the palisade you’re definitely going to notice this has a very boxy suv like design and as far as the length is concerned it’s going to be 196 inches which puts it pretty much in the middle of the pack in terms of length for this class of vehicle now coming around to the rear design as you’re going to tell we have kind of the wrap around window look although it’s not fully wrap around it’s just this black element right here and then as far as the rear design itself it hasn’t changed at all for 2022. it’s just going to be your typical palisade design which is classy and elegant we have palisades spelled out across the entire back right here and then if we come over to the taillights you’re noticing these are the premium led tail light design these are going to be full led this entire unit and that’s going to come on the limited and calligraphy trim levels then if you drop down below that here we have a unique rear diffuser for the calligraphy so all of these little silver elements that make it look very premium those are going to be calligraphy exclusive then on the right side we have our dual integrated exhaust pipes and a 5 000 pound tow rating on all of the models now one of the really nice things about the palisade is that they’re going to throw in their entire suite of safety systems standard across even the very base model so that’s going to be ford emergency braking pedestrian detection as well as lane keeping assist auto high beams and adaptive cruise control the palisade is of course a very stylish family suv on the outside but the luxury on the inside is also quite impressive so let’s go ahead and check out what that calligraphy offers but before we do that please hit the subscribe button down below also like and comment so walking up to this 2022 palisade you will of course find hyundai’s smart entry system standard on all but the base model and it will also include remote start as well and then to get inside the vehicle there’s not a sensor behind the handle so you’re just going to press the silver button to unlock but there we go there is the interior the big thing that everybody talks about with the palisade because it continues to really just be an absolutely lovely place to spend time and really borders on just a full luxury vehicle experience let’s talk about the different interior color and material options to start out with so your sc and your sel are going to come standard with cloth seating when you go for the premium package on the sel that will get you real leather and then when you go for the top end limited or the calligraphy model which is what we have today that will get you the beautiful quilted napa leather and as far as your color options you have the choice between this beige or black but the dark brown option has been discontinued for 2022 now turning over here to your door trim of course it is beautifully appointed we have nice leather trim that runs all through here we’ve got some textured silver trim a beautiful quilted material which is exclusive for just the calligraphy up top here we do have a kind of dark navy colored upper trim that’s also on the top of the main part of the cabin and then we’ve got this kind of faux bamboo that goes with this light colored interior you will find two-person memory seating standard on limited and calligraphy as far as the windows they’re one touch auto up and down for the driver and the passenger heading down here to your seats these are going to be power adjusting on all with the base se model and if you choose either the limited or the calligraphy that’s going to throw in this 4-way lumbar support as well as the power thigh extension and then like i already mentioned the seating is a beautiful napa leather which is one of the finest types of leather you can get i really love the quilting design and how that continues from the door trim to the seats as well [Music] like i was saying this really is a luxury vehicle experience when you get inside the palisade especially with this calligraphy trim level so taking a look at our materials we do have a soft touch upper dashboard as we move down here we have more of this kind of bamboo looking trim like i was mentioning it does go with this light colored interior uh the other models have a different type of trim this all through here is going to be finished in a nice leatherette material it is going to be padded and stitched along here where your knee rests against and then we do have this kind of textured aluminum look trim that runs across this big center console of course everything in here does fit together absolutely wonderfully and start up put your foot on the brake and press the standard button [Music] and right from the second you started up one of the things that will get your attention is this really nice looking 12.3 inch full digital gauge cluster this is going to be included on both the limited and the calligraphy trim levels there are two other gauge cluster designs that come on your lower end trim levels but as far as this one is concerned a really nice display of course it does change design depending on your drive modes and various other features it’s also very vivid and very crisp looking just like it is in a luxury vehicle and additionally when you choose that limited or calligraphy model you can have some additional features like the fact that when you say no to the right or the left that’s going to bring up your blind view camera system and up at the top those same two trims are going to throw in this really nice head up display as well now pulling back here to the steering wheel of course we have electric power assisted steering and every version except for the base model will come with a nice leather wrapped steering wheel though only the calligraphy has the perforated leather on the side part as far as the wheel itself it is going to be manual tilt and telescoping on all the models and again those top two models the limited calligraphy will come with heating as well as these rain sensing wipers but now let’s go ahead and dig into interior storage because the palisade really does an excellent job in this area so we’re going to start out underneath our center console here as i lift that up i’m going to be greeted with this little tray here which i can toss off to the side and looking inside here this is a very deep nicely felt lined at the bottom storage area inside you’re going to find a 12-volt outlet as well as one usb port let’s get our coupons out i know these are going to fit in here no problem but let’s just visually see how they fit look at that nice and easy so you could actually fit quite a few more now the nice thing about the palisade though is that you have quite a bit more storage from here so you slide this back you have this really large bin inside of this bin you’re going to find a wireless phone charging pad and another usb port you’ll also notice these areas here so these are like retractable cup holders basically so it acts as free storage but when you press the button check that out those things pop out just like that and then this becomes your cup holder so that’s a really interesting thing and then down below we do have a very large center pass-through again a great place to stick on and end things and you’ll also find another 12 volt outlet and another usb port now of course one of the reasons why you have so much storage is because they gone with an electronic shifter so this is hyundai’s push button style shifter you see on a lot of their products very simple to use you’re just going to press the d for drive you do have paddle shifters up here on the steering wheel for manual control press the r for reverse and when you do you will be greeted with this 360 degree backup camera this is going to be included on the limited and the calligraphy trim levels as you can see really nice and clear resolution you do have a few different views you can choose between as well including a trailer and a side view then for park just press the p you do have brake hold and electronic parking brake on the other side of the steering wheel now off to the side of the shifter you’re going to notice a panel of buttons controls various odd and end things this is for your drive mode controls of course and then down below you’ll notice you have some seat controls so on the palisade heated seats are actually included as standard equipment all but the very base trim level and then ventilated seats are optional on the sel and they’re standard on the higher trim levels than that and then up above that you’ve got a nice panel of climate controls as well so you’ve got the dual zone automatic climate control setup on all with the base model as you can see you do have physical controls here for very simple operation including your fan speeds and your zones and you can also change the rear climate zone with this button right there and then as we move above to this vent area you’ll notice another strip this is for your infotainment system as well as your audio system so as you’d expect with the fully loaded model we’re going to come with the 630 watt 12 speaker harman kardon sound system let’s go ahead and give that a sample right now [Music] yeah so overall sound quality is excellent and not only does it sound amazing but we do have beautiful real metal speaker grilles on the door which is automatic bonus points for me all right so now let’s take a look up here at our infotainment display so what we have on board is the 10.25 inch display which comes on the limited and above it is optional on the scl as well this is a display that’s going to include navigation as built in which you can see right there and the split screen ability where you can pop this out and have two things open simultaneously the lower models will come with an 8 inch display and with those lower models you will have wireless android auto and wireless apple carplay with the larger display on the higher end models it’s going to be a wired connection for those two things and then the last thing i want to take a look at real quick is our passenger talk system so this is basically an intercom that takes your voice back to the third row passengers so they can hear you easier this is going to be included on the limited and the calligraphy trim levels moving above here we do have an auto dimming mirror with our homelink remotes and then taking a look at our sun roofs i said more than one that’s because as you can see we do have the dual panel setup this is included as standard on the limited trim level you can get a standard size unit on the sel if you want that but this one has the dual panel both with a uh or with a power sun shade in the back and then what you’re probably noticing as well is one of the exclusive calligraphy touches and that’s the fact you have the beautiful alcantara headliner which is something that you really don’t see outside of full luxury vehicles very often well guys sitting in the palisades rear seat is pretty much like sitting in an oasis it’s really quite unexpected out of any type of normal brand you know this really feels like a luxury experience through and through but let’s break down the space before we get into the features we have 42.4 inches of legroom we have 40 inches of headroom which does place this at the very upper end of the segment it’s above that of the main rivals like the highlander right on par with that of the kia telluride as you would expect but overall this is a massive amount of space we can also slide these seats forward and back as well as recline them and as you can see behind drew’s seating position i have i would say eight inches or so of legroom so plenty of leg room and my feet can slide under the seat now i do also want to mention your captain’s chairs here you’re probably noticing that we have them on this model that’s because the calligraphy and limited comes standard with them and that’s the only configuration you can get it the sel does have both options available now as far as the features are concerned there are a lot of it so let me go ahead and start here in the center so we’re going to notice that you have three stage heated seats back here on the calligraphy and limited and you’re also going to have three stage ventilation that’s an extremely rare feature for this segment of vehicle really an extremely rare feature for any vehicle to have ventilated rear seats that is going to be seen in the top two trims and then down below that we also have our own climate controls it’s also going to be standard on the majority of the models and then if we drop down below that we have a 12 volt power outlet we also have a household style outlet so not forget about the usb ports that we have in the back seats that charge your devices and then over here on the door trim we’re additionally going to have rear window sun shades and then on the top we have our vents and i don’t know if drew mentioned it in the front but this headliner is absolutely superb now the palisade is all about family so let’s hop on into the third row and see what that’s all about now they have made it extremely easy to get into the third row itself because all you do is push this button right here and that folds the seat back forward as well as kind of electrically scoots it out of the way so you have a really clear path into getting into this third row and sitting back here this is a really really nice third row we have 31 inches of legroom we have 38 inches of headroom which does place it at the top end of the segment as well this is going to be a lot larger than something like a toyota highlander and as you’re probably noticing we actually have features back here as well so up in the top we are going to have our own vents right here nice and keep you cool and then we also have charging usb ports on the higher end models on both sides but that’s not all we actually have power reclining abilities so the people in this third row they can like fully recline back and that makes it a lot more enjoyable back here and i also want to mention hyundai hasn’t even cheaped out on the quilting they’ve quilted the seats and this is the same semi-analon leather that they use in the rest of the car walking up to the tailgate you’re going to notice that this calligraphy of course does have a power one it’s also going to be hands-free so you just stand back here and it will go ahead and pop open now the space itself we have 18 cubic feet behind the third row seats that expands to 46 cubic feet if you fold them down and as a maximum you have 86 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the palisade that is at the upper end of the segment just like pretty much every other spec has been so far with this palisade model best that of the toyota highlander it is really quite large in here it is a tiny bit less than the kia tell you ride though but as far as the finishings let’s talk about that we have a carpeting along the floor and if we lift that up there’s actually going to be quite a bit of underfloor storage um i’d estimate this to be at like five cubic feet maybe i don’t exactly know but it’s certainly enough to fit several things up under the floor we also have a 12 volt outlet here on the left side and you’re also going to notice quite a few buttons over here as well those are going to be for your power folding third row that is a class exclusive feature i believe maybe the new grand cherokee l has that feature but it’s a very rare feature to have and that is going to be standard on the limited uh and calligraphy trims and it is a one touch setup and you can also fold the second row from the buttons above that now your passenger seat is going to be eight way power adjusting if you opt for a higher end model like this one then as far as the glove box is concerned certainly is enough space to fit in our coupons so not only can you haul around everyone in your family maybe their friends as well you know also all around all of your coupons so that’s of course very important so you can be eaten cheap and then if we shut that up look up here at the sun visor it’s really nicely lined in that suede and then if we open it up we have a large mirror led lighting and it does also detach and extend [Music] and there we are at 63 miles per hour in this 2022 palisade so power is going to continue to come from the same power plant as the previous two model years it’s the only option for the palisade it’s a 3.8 liter v6 engine naturally aspirated 291 horsepower 262 pound-feet of torque those are very class competitive numbers um on the horsepower that’s actually on the upper end of the segment which is pretty good empower feels i would say very average for the class you know most of the things in this category really just tread right in that same area um so that it’s just plenty adequate for moving even a big vehicle like this yeah and really the the bigger thing about it is to have that v6 that’s really smooth and refined and you’re definitely going to find that here in this palisade i mean this is one of the smoothest engines money can buy this segment of vehicle with the highlander and this and the tell you ride they just have incredibly smooth v6 engines that blend into the background which is exactly what you want out of a family vehicle yeah yeah power is definitely adequate and definitely smoothly delivered as well so part of that situation is going to be your 8-speed automatic this is a really smooth and refined transmission just you know just kind of blends into the background not something you really notice because it’s nice and smooth like i said something that is refined and very responsive yeah and refined is let’s tell you or this uh palisades mission of course sorry i gotta look is there but uh as far as like the ride quality i mean it does such a good job um as far as comparing it to the tell your ride this is actually going to be what we think is a little bit softer sprung so this is going to have one of the best ride qualities in the segment i think this might be number one it just is so comfortable the seats definitely play into that with this beautiful napa leather that’s quilted all right let’s go ahead and talk about the fuel economy so this is available in front wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive actually new for 2022 is what we have right with us today is the front wheel drive calligraphy it used to be all wheel drive exclusive they now have added that front drive option to bring down the price point that’s actually what we have today the front drive is going to be right at 22 combined all wheel drive is 21 combined and let’s take a second to talk about today’s slam dunk and air ball so for a vehicle like this which is just really a great three row we’re going with a broad uh slam dunk and that’s going to be this interior this really is a beautifully finished interior it has lots of space lots of features and of course like we discussed all throughout the review the luxury is definitely really high-end and unexpected for this type of vehicle i can’t stop rubbing the headliner it’s so nice now as far as our airball is concerned this is a pretty tough one to pick out but what we’re gonna say is the thing that bothers me the most of course this is subjective i’m not a huge fan of the calligraphy’s wheels i actually do prefer the limiteds wheels i also prefer the first model year when this came out in 2020 i liked those limited wheels the best and um i i just am not a huge fan of the wheels on this it’s a little crazy for kind of a whole luxury calligraphy experience all right and we’ll go ahead and get a sound level reading for you guys try to get up to 55. we’re only sitting at 56 and a half decibels for the palisade certainly very quiet to my ears in this cabinet it just seems very isolated from everything around you now as far as the pricing is concerned for 2022 prices are only going to rise between three and five hundred dollars so really no significant price increase this year the se is going to be 33 150 and then you now have that calligraphy front drive which is what i was mentioning earlier that’s going to be 46 690 which is actually a decrease since now you have the front drive option this one it has tested plus the 1185 destination is going to be 48 950 bucks and that right there is our auto start stop system working as you can see that was very smooth and really quick responding of course you do have a button to defeat it if you don’t like it but overall wow does this palisade continue to impress i mean this is a vehicle each time that we’re in it we’re really just floored by the amount of features and luxury that hyundai packs into these things i mean it really is crazy just how well this stacks up against the competition also how well it even stacks up in some cases against luxury vehicles yeah you know this really is a phenomenal product and really it’s just only getting better with time well guys that’s going to be all for this in-depth review of the 2022 hyundai palisade calligraphy if you enjoyed watching this video or found it helpful when you’re
