When it comes to choosing between vehicles, their respective powertrains hold a lot of weight regarding most drivers’ decisions. When it comes to the Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride, you’ll notice quite a few similarities with their power and performance specs. For starters, both the Palisade and the Telluride come standardly equipped with a 3.8L V6 engine, and both crank out an output of 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
The most significant difference between the Palisade and Telluride’s powertrain is their transmissions. The Palisade comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, and the Telluride comes with a dual continuously variable valve timing transmission (CVVT). The Hyundai Palisade also comes standard with SHIFTRONIC® manual shift mode, which helps create an unforgettable, thrilling driving experience.
Like many SUV shoppers, you’re probably looking for a full-size option with tons of interior space. The Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride are versatile options, offering immense dedicated room for both passengers and cargo. The Palisade and Telluride each have the option for eight seats. They also provide similar cargo measurements, with over 86 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the front seats in each vehicle.
The biggest difference between the interiors of these SUVs stems from their additional interior measurements. The Hyundai Palisade comes with 44.1 inches of front legroom, whereas the Kia Telluride only offers 41.4 inches of front legroom. If legroom is a top selling point for you, choosing the Hyundai Palisade is the smart choice.
