It will be interesting to see how both of these new 3 row SUV's compete with the likes of the new Atlas, Ascent and Ford Explorer. I know the Sorento has been helping Kia to build up a consumer base in this segment already.

Looked at and drove both recently and just bought the Palisade. For me it is better looking, both exterior style and interior layout. Center console hand bars on Telluride seemed unnecessary and blocking open space, and screen rectangle standing up on dash board was obtrusive to my sight lines. Driver sits higher in Palisade which also improves my view. The Kia I drove leveled the road out slightly better, but difference was minimal. But, both are great additions to the world of autos, , as well as good buys.

Looks are subjective and all the car mags prefer the looks of the Telluride over the Palisade.
To me the Telluride is trying to look like a Range Rover. That’s not necessarily bad but it doesn’t push the design envelope.
I like the looks of the Palisade. The front end is polarizing but at least there is no mistaking it for anything else (front the front view at least).
Interior-wise I like the Palisade too, but I do still prefer a traditional shifter over the push buttons, but I am in the minority on this preference.
Enjoy your new Hyundai!

One of the families in my sister's neighborhood have the Telluride, which is where I was first drawn to these. I asked her what they thought of it and she said "I hate those sons a bitches and don't talk to them and don't care if the like it or not". I kept seeing the reviews preferred the Telluride exterior but I didn't see it. I'm still on the fence about the shifter. Sometimes I think it cool and others I with there was a short shifter lever. I'm sure after a few more months I'll not even think about it.
I agree about the lack of a gear knob. You feel something is missing, but, many of us probably suffer from ingrained tactile memories of 4 on the floor ! Hopefully I will get over it. In the meantime, it does have a smooth look and great space underneath.

We drove both and my wife preferred the Palisade. She said the Telluride looked too masculine. Ultimately she chose the Palisade as it looked a little softer and luxury versus rugged, off-roady. Again looks only as the drivetrains certainly have the same capabilities. I did not some fit/finish issues with the interior panels especially around the dash.

My wife & I test drove both the Palisade and the Telluride last weekend. Both rides felt about the same, but we liked the features of the Palisade much, much more.
The button shifting didn’t bother us. We have had the 2017 Honda Pilot until May, and it had that button shifter. I really liked that I can just turn off the car without shifting into park first. It’s the same with the Palisade.

One thing that none of the reviewers mentioned that my Hyundai salesman pointed out after our test drive was that the adaptive cruise control will actually take you all the way to a stop in traffic, and then start you back up. That’s unlike what the Telluride and Pilot would do; they will disengage the ACC when you show down enough. Can anyone confirm the behavior with the Palisade?

Confirmed.

I'm surprised the Telluride doesn't do the same.

Telluride ACC is the same system as the Palisade with the same stop and resume capabilities. The resume after stop will time out pretty quickly. You will need to press a button or the gas to get either to resume after the timeout.

Thanks! Then it appears that our Kia & Hyundai salespeople were either misinformed or I did not ask the Kia salesperson the question clearly enough.

3s on normal roads, 30s on HDA roads for the auto-resume.

Bought the Palisade for my wife to replace her 2012 GMC Acadia Denali. We liked the Telluride exterior only slightly more than the Palisade. Slightly. But inside it was no contest. The Palisade was clearly more luxurious looking and feeling. We bought a 2021 Calligraphy. With the grille change on the Calligraphy, we now think the Palisade looks better on the outside than any of the Telluride models.

We compared and tested the Palisade SEL with the Telluride S and it was a no doubter - at that trim level (similar price), the Palisade has better features. You need to reach Telluride EX level to compare, which will cost you put you $5K over the Palisade, not to mention the game of chasing down inventory on the Telluride. Also, we loved white exterior and felt like you need Telluride Nightfall to really pop. The Palisade wins when comparing regular white of SEL vs. Telluride S.

I agree and we bought the Calligraphy also but mainly because it has AWD which is hard to find in Florida!
