Hyundai Palisade Towing Capacity
The Hyundai Palisade is a three-row crossover SUV with a luxuriously appointed cabin, tons of technology features, and great performance that gives it a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. It’s not a surprise that it’s as popular as it is on the Reynoldsburg, Westerville, and Columbus, OH, roadways.
More and more often these days, SUVs are used to tow trailers. That’s why Dennis Hyundai East offers this review and breakdown of the Hyundai Palisade towing capacity to help you as you research your next ride.
What Is the Hyundai Palisade Towing Capacity?
When properly equipped with trailer brakes, the Hyundai Palisade offers a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. That’s plenty of weight to help pull a friend out of rough terrains like mud or a ditch, or to take a decent-sized trailer behind you on your next road trip or camping sojourn with friends and family.
The Palisade can also manage 1,650 pounds of trailer weight without trailer brakes.
Hyundai Palisade Engine and Power
A vehicle’s powertrain is what determines the lion’s share of its overall towing capacity. For the Palisade, it’s pretty straightforward: the only engine available on the Hyundai Palisade is a 3.8-liter V6 engine. It’s rated to deliver 291 horsepower. It also puts out 262 lb-ft of torque.
This engine is also quite efficient, it gets an EPA-estimated 19 city/25 highway MPG, so you can take your haul wherever it needs to be.1
Of course, in order to get the maximum towing capacity out of the new Palisade, it will need to be properly equipped. That includes the standard trailer sway control system. It gives you better overall control when you’re pulling a trailer behind you by braking individual wheels and adjusting engine torque when shifts in trailer weight is detected.
Cargo and Payload Capacity of the Palisade
Hand-in-hand with towing capacity goes cargo capacity and maximum payload. Towing capacity represents the amount of weight your SUV can pull behind it in terms of a trailer, flatbed, or another vehicle. Payload capacity represents the amount of weight your car can carry inside. They are two different numbers.
Inside the Palisade, behind the back row of seats, you get 18 cubic feet of storage space, plenty for a trip to the grocery store or for some light hauling. When you fold both of the back two rows of seats down, that space increases to an impressive 86.4 cubic feet. Whatever kind of gear you want to haul, from equipment for your next gig to fishing gear to camping equipment, you’re good to go. In fact, you can even carry a good amount of heavy stuff in the back.
