Telluride vs. Palisade: Sister from Another Master
With room for eight passengers (and seven in higher trims), the 2022 Kia Telluride offers plenty of room for passengers and cargo. It offers a wide range of decors, from elegant mainstream style to semi-luxury luxury filled with value. The Telluride has done so well that it won two Best Buy awards for 2021 and Best Three-Row Midsize SUV over the past year. For 2022, it gets a larger 10.25-inch infotainment screen as standard and additional features like automatic climate control and highway driving assistance.
Ride quality is comfortable and fast for a large SUV, and adaptive cruise control with Highway Driving Assist makes long drives manageable. The system reads road signs and adjusts speed as necessary. If you need to do a bit of rough terrain, the Telluride can handle it thanks to its 8-inch ground clearance and available all-wheel drive.
Inside there is plenty of space for adults (even in the third row). Seating is easy to access whether you have second-row captain’s seats or the standard seat, and the seats are stacked so everyone in the back can see the road ahead – stadium-style. This year, Driver Talk comes standard, which means you don’t have to scream to be heard in the back rows. Silent Mode also turns off the rear speakers when children are sleeping.
Telluride also boasts an impressive array of standard safety systems. These include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go. Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Driver Attention Warning, Rear Passenger Alert, and Safe Exit Assist is also included.
The 2022 Hyundai Palisade is the Hyundai-branded twin of the Kia Telluride, though in a fraternal twin relationship, the Palisade gets its own look, style and equipment offerings, despite shared mechanical and technical underpinnings.
A 3.8-liter V6 powering the 2022 Palisade, rated at 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. There are no other engines available, nor is there a hybrid variant. All barriers, whether front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, use an 8-speed automatic transmission with a push-button gear selector.
The 2022 Hyundai Palisade is largely unchanged from the previous year’s model, with only minor changes to trim configurations and color options. Side mirrors with turn indicators, Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and Safe Exit Assist, previously available on SEL models and higher, are now standard on all models.
Inside, the 2022 Hyundai Palisade offers adult-friendly third-row seating, ample luggage space, and a choice of eight-seater or second-row seating that reduces the maximum number of passengers to seven.
The interior is modern and elegant, with soft-touch materials that feel nice even in the lower edges, and the highest quality materials available – nappa leather in Palisade Limited, or quilted leather and micro-finishing in the upper layer of calligraphy.
four-wheel drive optional; Energy; fuel economy; Standard driver assistance features; Guarantee; NHTSA safety ratings are 5 stars.
