One look at the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, and you’ll find a unique and refined look no other SUV brings. All around, you’ll find smooth lines and elegant curves for a sleek look. In the front, an ultra-suave chrome-framed grille sets a powerful and dignified tone for all your rides. Plus, this SUV’s wide stance lets you and the world know it’s ready for adventure. The 2020 Palisade packs such good looks it even received the 2019 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.
Get behind the wheel, and take this SUV for a ride—you’ll instantly understand how the 2020 Hyundai Palisade won many other awards as well. Even when considering all its acclaim, are you curious to know how this SUV stacks up against the competition? Let’s take a look at the 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs Chevy Traverse.
Already loving the look of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade? Stop by Brandon Hyundai to take this cool SUV for a test drive.
Get ready for a fun drive—the 2020 Hyundai Palisade’s 3.8L 6-cylinder motor not only comes standard but it’s loaded with power to help you find new adventures every day.
The 291 horsepower and 291 lb-ft torque bring you power to hit the I-4 and unleash nimble speeds. It’s also the strength you’ll need to explore all the hidden gems scattered throughout Florida. Plus, with EPA-estimated 26 highway mpg, you’ll have no problems traveling without constant worries of refueling.
When the roads turn wet and slick, available all-wheel drive ensures your adventures won’t need to end early. This feature is available on all trims, and also comes with Downhill Brake Control to help you remain gripped and stable when traversing steep inclines.
Got a job in mind? The 5,000 lbs of available towing capacity allows you to tow trailers, boats, and lightweight vehicles across town for epic weekend getaways. With so much capability and stellar performance, it’s no wonder the 2020 Hyundai Palisade won the 2020 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award in the Best Large Utility category.
By comparison, the 2020 Chevy Traverse offers a similar ride with its 3.6L V6 engine. The 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft torque help this SUV move across town without issues. Meanwhile, available AWD on the LS trim and up allow you to stay in command when storms arise and road grades become loose. For trailering, you’ll also get 1,500 lbs capacity (5,000 in the top trim, High Country).
For the drive, it’s a close call as to which SUV better delivers. But with more torque, lighter body weight, AWD availability on the base trim, and 5,000 lbs of towing capacity readily available with trailer brakes, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade comes out on top.
Step inside the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, and you’re greeted to a world of spacious comfort. Available quilted Nappa leather seats with available heated functions make for ultra-comfortable and refined drives anywhere you travel.
Everything also rests within ergonomic comfort. Want to take control of the gear shifts? Steering-wheel mounted shift paddles come standard and sit within a finger’s length so that every drive is filled with precision and comfort.
For controlling your media, a standard 8-inch touchscreen packs Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® to help you connect to your favorite apps. Listen to your favorite tunes, get back to texts with both hands on the wheel, and much more.
Need a larger screen? Opt for the 10.25-inch touchscreen, and never again tap the wrong app. All the onboard comfort and fun inside even helped the 2020 Hyundai Palisade win the CarBuzz Family Fun Award.
When compared to the 2020 Chevy Traverse, you’ll find both SUV’s never come short of luxury. Available leather seats in the Chevy Traverse make for an inviting welcome. And the 7-inch standard touchscreen comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for plenty of fun. If you need a larger touchscreen, you can upgrade up to eight inches.
It’s another close call, but with up to 2.25 inches of extra touchscreen space, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade gains another win—after all, that space makes a huge difference when roads get bumpy. Also, the presence of shift paddles ensures you have a fun ride you can enjoy at your personal pace.
When you ride in the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, numerous driver assists come standard to ensure your travels always have an extra layer of security.
For your highway drives, Lane Keeping Assist helps you stay in line by sending you warnings any time you accidentally merge from your lane. You’ll also feel gentle corrective steering to ensure you stay in the correct lane.
Parking Distance Warning – Reverse prevents any dings when parallel/ reverse parking by alerting you when you come too close to other cars, trash bins, cart returns, and much more.
Forward Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection sends you alerts when collisions with cars and/ or pedestrians ahead seem likely. If you don’t get out of the way or hit the brakes, your Hyundai automatically applies emergency braking to help you come to a stop in time.
That’s only getting started with the standard features the 2020 Hyundai Palisade offers. Here’s a look at a few more you can expect for your drives:
Get behind the wheel of the 2020 Chevy Traverse, and available driver assists like Forward Collisions Alert and Front Pedestrian Braking help you watch out for fender benders. Meanwhile, Lane Keep Assist prevents you from traveling over the lines on the road.
As far as standard features go, Rear Seat reminder sends you a warning to check for children or pets before you leave your SUV.
Both SUVs offer stellar driver-assists. However, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade wins another round for offering most of those features standard.
