Both the Palisade and Telluride share the same bones and powertrains,

including the same Hyundai-sourced 3.8-liter V-6 and eight-speed automatic transmission combination.

As a result, performance between these two is basically identical in a straight line.

The Telluride seems a tad bit more willing to handle the curvier bits.

But this is only apparently if you drive either of these crossover SUVs back-

to-back and truly pay attention to the subtle details with the way they drive.
