Hyundai stands out with its rapid pace of releasing new and refreshed models, and the 2026 Palisade is next in line for an update. Spotted during testing, the talented designer Kelsonik has imagined its final production form.

Similar to the new Santa Fe, the refreshed Palisade will boast a striking and distinctive design, setting it apart from the conventional. Whether this resonates positively with consumers remains to be seen. Renderings by Kelsonik showcase two potential design directions, featuring a boxier silhouette compared to its predecessor.

Both versions of the 2026 Palisade depicted here feature an LED light bar spanning the front, with main headlamps flanking the blacked-out grille. The front-end design portrayed in the second set of renderings appears slightly more angular, which, in our view, is less aesthetically appealing.

The SUV's side profile will undergo notable changes, including flush door handles, refined shaping, and a slightly altered thick D-pillar. Additionally, Kelsonik has developed two distinct rear-end designs for the Palisade.


The initial design draws inspiration from the new Kona, featuring an LED light bar and distinct LED taillight clusters. While it follows Hyundai's design language, we have reservations. Conversely, the second rear design presents a more appealing option, integrating the light bar and taillights into a single unit for a cohesive appearance.

Hyundai plans to offer various powertrain options for the new model, including a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 expected to surpass the current naturally-aspirated 3.8-liter unit's output of 291 horsepower (217 kW / 295 PS). Additionally, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine is likely to be available, catering to the increasing demand for hybrid powertrains.
