Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Palisade than in the GMC Acadia, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Palisade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia.

Convenience
The GMC Acadia requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Palisade, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The GMC Acadia is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Palisade. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the GMC Acadia and the Hyundai Palisade have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much slimmer than the Hyundai Palisade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Acadia takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Palisade.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the GMC Acadia and the Hyundai Palisade are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The GMC Acadia has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Palisade, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Palisade is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Acadia has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Palisade.

Utility
The GMC Acadia has less seating than the Hyundai Palisade, making the Hyundai Palisade the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The GMC Acadia has less cargo space than the Hyundai Palisade, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Acadia is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Palisade.
