When it comes to three-row SUVs families have more options than ever thanks to the addition of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade this year. Entering a category loaded with winners like the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, and Toyota Highlander, Palisade boasts several features that should put it on the short list of anyone looking for a family-friendly SUV.

Go anywhere with confidence

Palisade's V6 engine and all-wheel drive system create a confident driving experience. There's plenty of acceleration to get you up to speed on entrance ramps. You can tow up to 5,000 pounds so you can take your boat or camper with you. And with a Snow mode, you can get away from it all any time of year.

Create your own silent night

If your kids want to sleep, but you want to listen to the game while you're on that long road trip, not to worry. Just hit the icon on the available 10.25-inch color touch screen to activate Rear Sleep Mode and you mute the speakers to the second and third row. They get their quiet space while you cheer your team (quietly), listen to your favorite music, or podcast.

Power to the people

No more fighting for electricity. With a USB port for every seat in the Palisade you and your kids can keep your devices charged. There are also a wireless charging pad, three traditional power ports, and a 110-volt power outlet.

Keeping Your cool

Getting airflow to all rows isn't easy in an SUV. Palisade solves this problem with innovative diffuser vents in the roof of the vehicle above the second and third rows. In addition, if you opt for the decidedly upscale Limited edition, second row passengers get heated and ventilated seats.

Seeing is believing

Side view mirrors and blind spot warning helps you avoid hidden dangers when you're turning or changing lanes. But Palisade takes it one step further. Hit your turn signal and an image appears in the 12.3-inch digital instrument panel showing you what's in your blind spot thanks to rear facing cameras.

Take it all with you

There's a place for everything in the new Palisade. There's an open area under the center console for bags and purses. The seat backs have special pockets designed to hold small hand-held devices like tablets and phones. And, there are 16 cupholders, so if you're thirsty, it's your fault!

Sit back and relax

Not only is there reasonable room in Palisade's third row, but in higher trim levels the seats are powered so they can recline and fold with the touch of a button. In addition every Palisade comes with a hands-free power liftgate that makes loading groceries and gear easy.

The Hyundai Palisade has quickly become a family favorite among three-row SUVs. With all this content and the availability of Nappa leather-trimmed seats and real wood accents, it's downright luxurious. Make sure to check one out if you're in the market for a big all-wheel drive vehicle that can do it all.

The Jeep Wrangler Dual-Door Group offers factory-backed half-door comfort, style, and safety.

Jeep Wrangler owners who want an open-air experience but don't want the complete doors-off look have a new from-the-factory option. Jeep Performance Parts and Mopar have worked together to create new half-doors for the iconic SUV.

The new Jeep Wrangler Dual-Door Group features two factory engineered, tested, and backed half-door options that offer owners the option to have production-level styling, security, and occupancy protection in addition to improved visibility.

Available for both two- and four-door Jeep Wrangler models through the Mopar Custom Shop, as part of an original new-vehicle purchase in the U.S. and Canada, the new Jeep Wrangler Dual-Door Group includes both full and half doors. Full-steel production doors are installed on the vehicle while matching body-color half doors are packaged within the vehicle.

    With production-level materials and build quality, new half doors are designed to work when equipped with any of the following features: power mirrors, blind-spot detection, passive and non-passive entry handles, and power locks. A quick and easy swap from full doors to half doors can be accomplished within minutes using the existing hinge locations and the exact same wiring connections.

    The newly developed upper-window assemblies are designed to have a weather-tight sealant feature zippered plastic windows. Two materials are offered for the assemblies: base-model vinyl that matches the production soft-top roof or premium acrylic that matches the premium soft-top roof.

    Each upper-door frame section uses an easy, tool-free, dual-guide post feature for easy installation and removal.

    The Dual-Door Group is now available on two- and four-door Jeep Wrangler Sport, Rubicon; Sahara, Rubicon 392, and 4xe models. Factory-option pricing for the U.S.s tarts at $2,350 for the two-door's Dual-Door Group with base-model upper-window assembles while the four-door costs $3,995. Checking the box for the more premium version of the upper-window assemblies moves the price tag up to $2,550 for the two-door and $4,395 for the four-door.

    Warranty coverage for each Dual-Door Group option is included as part of the new-vehicle warranty of three years/36,000 miles.

    The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 comes to a dealership near you later this quarter.

    The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is the V8-powered Wrangler y'all have been asking for. Now we know how much 470 horsepower under the hood will cost you - $73,500 - and that's before taxes, fees, and any dealership markup.

    With typical Wrangler Rubicon looks on the outside, the Rubicon 392's big selling point is its engine. The 6.4-liter V8 can get from zero to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    Jeep is equipping the Rubicon 392 with a 21.5-gallon fuel tank to help with the thirsty engine's range. To save on fuel, the Rubicon 392 uses cylinder deactivation to switch into four-cylinder mode when the V8 isn't needed.

    The noise out back is courtesy of a two-mode performance exhaust. A functional air scoop feeds the engine and keeps it cool.

    All that power requires a stronger frame than the typical Wrangler has. It gets upgraded frame rails, improved cast-iron steering knuckles, and beefier front upper control arms. Stopping power comes from the SUV's larger-than-usual brakes - the Rubicon 392 has 14-inch rotors instead of the Rubicon's typical 13.4-inchers. A 2.0-inch lift is standard.

    Jeep has given the model an Off-Road Plus button that lets you lock the rear of the Wrangler Rubicon 392 while it's in four-wheel drive high gear. This functionality will prove especially helpful to desert trekking enthusiasts who get slippery sand under the tires but have to keep up their forward motion so they don't sink and get stuck.

    It's also Moab-ready. The Wrangler Rubicon 392 doesn't have the Rock-Trac transfer case that's in the typical Rubicon, but it makes up for it with the availability of low-end torque courtesy of the new V8. Add in the standard Select-Trac transfer case, locking rear differentials, and front sway bar disconnect and adventuring on rocks just became more manageable.

    The entire rig rides on 33-inch BF Goodrich KO2 tires that sit at all four corners one 17-inch beadlock-capable tires.

    Jeep has given the SUV 11 features that are normally options on Wrangler, nine color choices for buyers to pick from, and bronze colored accents. At the center of the dashboard is an n8.4-inch infotainment screen that allows Jeep Off-Road Pages to be viewed.

    Mopar will offer factory-based accessories with the model.

    The new Jeep is expected to arrive at dealerships in the first quarter of this year.
