Which is more powerful – the new Hyundai Palisade or the Hyundai Santa Fe XL?

If you've had your eye on our blog lately, you know we've been speaking a bit about the size differences between the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL and the Hyundai Palisade. And given that these two models are geared toward growing families, finding one with the right amount of interior space is important. However, at the end of the day, they're still both SUVs and as such, they should be sporty. So, which one has the power to get you excited for driving again? That's a question we're happy to answer here at Rick Case Hyundai Duluth.

Now, if you read our previous blog post, you'll note that we found that the new Hyundai Palisade is slightly larger overall than the Hyundai Santa Fe XL, and you might expect that means it's markedly more powerful.

However, when it comes to these two new Hyundai three-row SUVs, their power trains are very much similar. The Hyundai Santa Fe XL comes with a standard 3.3-liter V6 engine, capable of delivering up to 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque.

On the other hand, the new Hyundai Palisade is only slightly more powerful with its standard 3.8-liter V8 engine, delivering 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. In addition, both come with available Hyundai HTRAC® all-wheel drive and the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

So, in the grand scheme of things, there's not too great a power deficit between the new Hyundai Palisade and Hyundai Santa Fe XL, so you're free to choose which of these two SUVs best suits your needs in terms of features and space. And if you need a bit of help making that decision, drop by our Duluth, GA Hyundai dealership to take a test drive or two today.
