As a large midsize crossover SUV aimed at being the best family hauler for the

money and its price range of $36,650 to $53,850,

the Hyundai Palisade somehow finds a way to push all of its stiff competition aside to be one of the best of its kind, if not the best.

Such competition includes the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Volkswagen

Atlas, Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer, Subaru Ascent, Jeep Grand Cherokee,

Mazda CX-9 and its equally compelling cousin, the Kia Telluride.
