Inspired by the Beauchene Family's selfless adoption story, Hyundai Motor America gifted them its newest flagship, the family-oriented Palisade SUV.


The Beauchene family recently took delivery of their all new 2020 Hyundai Palisade at Preston Hyundai of Boardman in Ohio. The Beauchene's are one of the first to own Hyundai's new flagship, family-oriented SUV, which was gifted to them by Hyundai Motor America after their heart-warming and selfless story of adoption captivated and inspired thousands on Good Morning America in November, 2018.

The full-size SUV will be perfect for road trips or as a daily runabout for the large family Prior to expanding their family in 2018, empty nesters Don and Michelle had six grown children of their own. However, their retirement plans suddenly changed when they unexpectedly welcomed four new adopted children, all of whom are foster siblings, into their family. Today, the Beauchene's are thriving and their children include Dan, Dustin, Hilary, Regan, Brittany, Maddie, Lily, Lucy, London and Brooklyn.

Touched and inspired by Don and Michelle's kindness and generosity, Hyundai Motor America welcomed the family as guests to the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show for the Palisade's global debut, where they got a first look at their future vehicle.

"Michelle and Don are incredibly deserving of the all new Hyundai Palisade and they embody the Hyundai spirit of making things better," said Dean Evans, Chief Marketing Officer, Hyundai Motor America. "Whether it is for road trips or for running their new family about, we wish nothing but the very best for the Beauchene family and hope that this vehicle brings them much happiness and many, many miles for years to come."

The Palisade is Hyundai's new flagship premium three-row SUV that rides on an all new SUV chassis with exceptional second and third-row roominess, coupled with generous cargo area and reconfiguration flexibility. It brings exceptional comfort, technology, and safety in a bold full-size SUV.
