Understanding the 2024 Hyundai Palisade Trims

In a moment, we’re going to dive headfirst into discussing the towing capacity of the 2024 Hyundai Palisade. But before we do that, you need to know about the different trims that are available for this mid-size SUV.

The 2024 Palisade currently comes in six trims:

  • SE
  • SEL
  • XRT
  • Limited
  • Calligraphy
  • Calligraphy Night Edition

Each of these models comes with its own unique features. The SE and SEL trims, for example, have enough seating to fit eight people; the Limited and Calligraphy trims can only seat seven but have comfortable captain’s chairs in the second row.

But one thing remains the same regardless of which trim you choose when buying the 2024 Hyundai Palisade. They all have the same towing capacity when properly equipped.

Unmatched Power

The 2024 Hyundai Palisade comes with a 291-hp 3.8L GDL V-6 engine. It’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that has steering-wheel-mounted paddles that will allow you to manually shift it if you so choose. The newest Palisade comes with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive will also be an option if you choose the SE, SEL, or Limited model. This powertrain allows the 2024 Palisade’s to tow more than you might think.

Towing Capacity

Let’s stop messing around and get into what we all came here to talk about: the 2024 Hyundai Palisade’s towing capacity. No matter which 2024 Palisade trim you ultimately decide to drive off the lot, it will be able to tow up to 5,000 pounds. All of the Palisade models come with the same powertrain and have the same towing capacity, so even drivers who choose the base model will have plenty of power. The only thing you’ll need to do to unlock this towing power is ask a dealer like Allen Turner Hyundai to supply you with a trailer hitch before you leave.

In addition to towing up to 5,000 pounds, every 2024 Palisade is also outfitted with towing-specific features like a transmission cooler, trailer pre-wiring, and sway control. It doesn’t have a designated tow mode, but the available all-wheel drive helps it achieve the highest pulling power possible.

The 2024 Palisade’s 5,000-pound towing capacity allows it to keep pace with other mid-size SUVs like the 2024 Acura MDX and the 2024 Lexus TX 350. At the same time, it offers more luxury features and a more stylish exterior than its counterparts with the same towing capacity. The 2024 Palisade can tow a surprising amount of weight for such a classy and well-designed vehicle.

There are also other storage features scattered throughout the masterfully designed 2024 Palisade. For instance, there’s a space situated underneath the load floor that is built to hold wet bathing suits, muddy football uniforms, and anything else you don’t want to carry inside the cabin. There’s also a large center console, cubby spaces in the doors, and other small spots to put things like smartphones and other devices.

The 2024 Palisade has plenty of technology features, too. Aside from the 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display mentioned earlier, it has a standard in-dash navigation system and Apple AirPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity in all six trims. You’ll also have the option to sign up for the Blue Link app service, which will enable you to lock, unlock, and start your Palisade remotely using Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

So many safety features come standard in the 2024 Palisade as well thanks to its standard Hyundai SmartSense. This comprehensive suite of safety features includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. It even has features like safe exit assist that will provide audible warnings when the Palisade is parked and a vehicle is coming up behind you and preparing to pull into a parking spot. Utilize it in conjunction with the SUV’s child safety locks to ensure your kids don’t jump out when you park and potentially put themselves in danger.
