The 2023 Hyundai Palisade has the same 3.8-liter V-6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission that’s in the 2022 Palisade. The output of the engine is 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Buyers of the Palisade have a choice of either a front-wheel drive system or an all-wheel drive system.

Hyundai didn’t yet release the fuel economy estimates or the towing capacity of the 2023 Palisade. However, since the powertrain for the 2023 Palisade is unchanged, the gas mileage (up to 19 city/26 highway mpg) and towing capacity (5,000 pounds) will likely be similar to the 2022 Palisade.
