If you’re searching for a spacious, well-equipped SUV for your Chicago family, the new Hyundai Palisade for sale at Patrick Hyundai deserves a second look. The most popular trim levels for the 2021 Hyundai Palisade are the SE, SEL, and Limited, but which option has the features you desire most for travels to Arlington Heights? Patrick Hyundai highlights the differences between these Palisade trims below, so you can make a well-informed decision at our dealership.

Baseline Features for Hyundai Palisade Trims

One commonality between the Palisade SE, SEL, and Limited trims is their base engine: an efficient 291-hp 3.8L GDI V6, which earns an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway. All three trims offer either 7 or 8-passenger seating, depending on your choice of bench seating or captain’s chairs in the 2nd row. A full suite of driver-assistive safety tech is also featured as standard across the lineup, including:

  • Parking Distance Warning – Reverse

  • Lane Following Assist (LFA)
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
