The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is ready to serve your large family in Anderson South Carolina. This is its first model year, and already it’s emerging as a serious competitor. There are many reasons for its ability to rival better-known three-row rides. As we look at the 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Ford Expedition, we’ll see how the new model makes its case.
The Expedition costs about $20,000 more than the Palisade at the entry level. Yet the Palisade has many of the same standards, serving Anderson Spartanburg Greenville South Carolina better. That big price difference gives you plenty of room to choose a higher Hyundai trim level. Another way the Palisade pulls ahead is simply by giving owners peace of mind. Many shoppers have heard about the extended limited warranty of up to five years, which is two more than the Expedition. Likewise, the powertrain warranty runs for up to ten years, a five-year increase over the Expedition. Adding to that, Hyundai now has a complimentary maintenance plan for three years or 36,000 miles.
All essential features and many exciting ones can be found on both SUVs. Since the Hyundai is so much less expensive, you can get all of these amenities for less. For instance, both are offering ways to make the kids more comfortable. The Palisade has one-touch third-row access, adjustable rear air vents, available three-zone automatic HVAC control, and multiple USB ports. On the Palisade, you can choose power seats with an extension that can make driving more comfortable. You can get second-row captain’s seats that can be heated and ventilated just like the front row. Available on both, a big panoramic sunroof provides a sense of spaciousness. The Hyundai automatic key can trigger the hatch door to open automatically.
The Palisade has 291 horsepower, which is plenty for the road ahead. This allows it to claim up to 26 miles per gallon on the highway. Reducing the Palisade’s fuel use in cities, it has idle stop and go. The heavier Expedition has more horses, but it also earns only 23 miles per gallon on the highway. With available HTRAC, the Palisade has all-wheel drive and a locking rear differential. There are five drive modes including comfort, sport, smart, eco, and snow. The Expedition’s terrain management is more off-road focused. Frankly, the Palisade pays more attention to the road, where family SUVs spend most of their time.
Like its rival, the Palisade has an advanced touch screen that provides access to more apps via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. Extras include a wireless charging pad and a SurroundView parking monitor. Palisades offer a high-resolution 10.25 inch touch screen as well. The Palisade is also offering a 12.3-inch instrument cluster. What makes it different from the Ford’s similar feature is that the cluster can have video feed if you include the advanced blind spot monitor. When it comes to standard safety, the Palisade has more. Pedestrian detection and forward collision warning go hand in glove with the automatic braking system. Lane keeping assist can straighten you up in the lane if the warnings go unheeded. The 2020 Ford Expedition has similar standards, but they don’t include Hyundai’s smart cruise. This system has stop-and-go capability with a lane following assist. Other Hyundai standards include rain sensing wipers and high beam assist. Keeping it competitive, the Palisade offers highway driving assist, which is similar to Ford’s semi-automatic system.
