We look at the differences between the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade to see if the Telluride really is the better mid-size SUV.

With the broader automotive movement toward crossovers and sports utility vehicles, 

the SUV craze isn't in danger of slowing down, and the majority of manufacturers have begun to concentrate their automobile lines on SUVs.

Both Kia and Hyundai produce highly attractive and powerful SUVs in the mid-size range that combine excellent powertrains, tasteful appearance, 

and large equipment levels to provide all you need for the road or dirt track.

It could be difficult to pick one over the other, or even any other mid-sized SUV, but Kia seems to have a winner with the Telluride: 

it is in fact, perhaps, more well-liked than its Hyundai Palisade brother.

Kia’s Telluride Is A Modern And Desirable Family SUV Ride

Given that Kia and Hyundai's SUVs essentially have the same mechanical components and powertrains, the two SUVs are really meaningfully related.

Each vehicle has a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. 

An 8-speed automatic gearbox sends power to either the front wheels or all four wheels if the buyer chooses that option.

Each car is rated to pull 5000 lbs too, and online both SUVs start from just over $33,000, with similar warranties that offer up to 10 years protection for the powertrain.
