2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Nissan Pathfinder

Serving Lexington Park, MD

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is an all-new release from Hyundai this year. Although it is new, however, the Palisade has not failed to make a significant first impression. Already, the grand Palisade ranks #2 among midsize SUVs. It stands out in many ways, including the fact that it has an exceptionally spacious, well-equipped, and comfortable interior at every trim level. The Palisade also has a remarkably modern and upscale exterior with some minor differences among the trim levels. The Palisade also offers exceptional value for its generous array of standard and optional amenities. The Palisade belongs to one of the most competitive classes, which includes the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder. While the Palisade is a new model this year, the Pathfinder carries over relatively unchanged. The Pathfinder comes with some standard features, but it has less value overall than the Palisade. In comparison to the Palisade, the Pathfinder ranks #10 among midsize SUVs this year.


At first glance, you'll be able to tell right away what makes the 2020 Hyundai Palisade so unique. Although it belongs to the class of midsize SUVS, the Palisade has a large exterior with a bold personality. The Palisade gets a bold front end that dazzles from top to bottom with a sculpted hood, LED lights, daytime running lights, and fog lights. It also gets a prominent front grille with chrome surrounds. Heated side mirrors are a highlight along the sides, and you have the option of upgrading to 20-inch alloy wheels. With the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder, you can only get 18-inch wheels at most. Furthermore, you must upgrade to get many exterior features that come standard with the Palisade.


While the 2020 Palisade dazzles and delights from the outside, it also has impressive credentials under the hood. The 2020 Palisade is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine that produces up to 291 HP and 262 LB-FT of torque. This engine is coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission on all trim levels. You have a choice of drivetrains with the Hyundai Palisade, which are either standard front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder, in contrast, has a less powerful engine. The engine of the Pathfinder only produces up to 284 HP and 259 LB-FT of torque. At 3.5L, it is also smaller than the engine that powers the Palisade.


Inside, the 2020 Palisade has an impressive list of standard features. The 2020 Palisade comes with an eight-inch infotainment display screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and three USB charging ports at the base level. It also gets satellite radio and Bluetooth. The Palisade comes with several standard safety features as well, including reverse parking sensors and automatic emergency braking. Moving up the line, you get a dual-pane sunroof, leather seats, climate-controlled seats, and an optional 10.25-inch infotainment display screen. With the Nissan Pathfinder, in contrast, you have to pay extra for many amenities that come standard in the Palisade, including an eight-inch infotainment display screen. You also have to order packages to get many of the Palisade's essential safety equipment.
