2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Kia Telluride near New Castle, DE

Are you looking for a three-row SUV with plenty of space to hold your entire family and all of their belongings? Then you've come to the right place. Today we are going to be looking at two brand new models that just debuted the 2020 Hyundai Palisade and the 2020 Kia Telluride. Both vehicles feature powerful engines, seating for eight or seven with the available captain's chairs, and either front- or all-wheel-drive. What really sets these two models apart is their lengthy equipment lists. To find out which vehicle's features list is better equipped then the other keep reading down below.

2020 Hyundai Palisade Power & Handling

Each version of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine. The powerful engine pumps out 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque which allows the Palisade to tow up to 5,000 pounds. An eight-speed automatic transmission comes mated with the V6 engine. The Palisade also comes standard with front-wheel-drive but Hyundai's HTRAC all-wheel-drive system is available.

2020 Kia Telluride Power & Handling

The new 2020 Kia Telluride is also powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine. This V6 engine also makes 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Just like the Palisade the Telluride comes standard with front-wheel-drive while all-wheel-drive is optional. An eight-speed automatic transmission also comes mated with this V6 engine.

2020 Hyundai Palisade Features & Design

Hyundai offers three different trim levels for the 2020 Palisade the SE, SEL and Limited. The base model SE comes fully loaded with an 8-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration, three USB ports heated mirrors, remote keyless entry, power-folding second-row bench seats, 60/40-split-folding third-row seats, adaptive cruise control, second-row air condition controls, lane-keeping assist, rear passenger reminder, automatic high beams, and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking. The mid-level SEL tacks on heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, roof rails, and second-row captain's chairs. A Convenience package adds a wireless charging pad, a power liftgate, third-row USB ports, and a self-leveling rear suspension. The Premium package pairs with the above package to add heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, power-folding third-row seats, and leather upholstery. The fully loaded Limited trim comes with everything listed above plus a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation, an intercom system, ventilated front and second-row seats, a head-up display, a 12-speaker sound system, and a surround-view camera.

2020 Kia Telluride Features & Design

The Telluride starts things off with the LX base model which comes with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, lane-keeping assist, a six-speaker stereo, and automatic headlights. Next up in the model lineup is the S model with second-row captain's chairs, roof rails, and heated front seats. The Telluride EX then adds a larger 10.3-inch touchscreen, the second-row bench seat, ventilated front seats, a wireless charging pad, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Sitting at the top of the model lineup is the Telluride SX which goes back to the second-row captain's chairs and adds a 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, front parking sensors, interior ambient lighting, and LED headlights and foglights. When the SX is paired with AWD, you can opt for the available Prestige package which adds a head-up display, heated and ventilated second-row seats and a heated steering wheel.

Conclusions

While both of these brand new vehicles are pretty remarkable we'd have to say the 2020 Hyundai Palisade beats out the Kia Telluride. While both feature the size engines which output the same amount of horsepower the differences become wildly apparent when you look at the features list. The Palisade simply comes with way more features than the Telluride does. The multiple packages available for the mid-tier SEL also allows you to customize your vehicle so you're getting exactly what you're looking for.
