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
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the GMC Acadia, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Palisade.
