2021 Hyundai Palisade Overview

The 2021 Hyundai Palisade was an instant hit in its class. It also immediately became a trendsetter, so when you see other models compared with it, you often see them borrowing from the Palisade's design school. One chief rivalry is the 2021 Hyundai Palisade Vs 2021 Honda Pilot, a competition we'll be looking at closely today here at Davis Hyundai. This brief match-up is serving Trenton Ewing Hamilton New Jersey customers with a look at both models. We believe by the end of it, though, you'll only be seriously looking at the 2021 Palisade.

Performance - Hyundai Dealer serving Newark NJ

Horsepower and torque obviously matter when it comes to performance, but other things matter as well, such as how well-built the exterior of the model is. What size tires is it rolling on and how are its aerodynamics? Still, horsepower and torque are a great starting point. The 2021 Honda Pilot only gets 280 horsepower maximum, while the 2021 Hyundai Palisade gets a graceful 291 horsepower. Both have 262 lb-ft of torque at their highest. Both models also offer a generous 5,000 pounds maximum towing. We'd argue that the greater horsepower on the Palisade is accurate. It actually is more powerful. You'll feel this because of the shape of the Palisade and how they carefully design its aerodynamics. The acceleration on your Palisade is greater than on your 2021 Honda Pilot. This gives you more performance.

Technology - 2021 Hyundai Palisade near Newark NJ

Few models destroy the Pilot on technology quite as much as the Palisade. You might call technology the Pilot's biggest weakness, as it's still stuck with an 8-inch touchscreen display. In the meantime, the Palisade can move all the way on up to a 10.25-inch touchscreen display with navigation, traffic flow, and premium apps. It also features a 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system that bests the 10-speakers on the Pilot Black Edition. Power on the Palisade's stereo is 630 watts, while the Black Edition only gets a 590-watt speaker system. For better sound, better tech, and easier daily life on the road, the Palisade is a simple choice. It just wins out with no real competition here. Hyundai's focus on technology is a natural progression of their design. You see that the engineers at Hyundai simply love new technology. They're always looking for ways to make your drive smoother and more fun. Now they've found ways to make your time in the cabin more fun, too.

Hyundai Palisade Safety specs

Hyundai's SmartSense is an award-winning system. There are few safety systems out there who could even entertain the idea of keeping up with it. However, the Honda Pilot could have tried a little harder. NHTSA ratings reveal where the Pilot falls short: Front-end safety. It only gets 4-stars while the Palisade easily gets 5. Your front-end collision avoidance is extremely important out there. The Palisade's SmartSense will see you through, while the Honda engineers seem to have forgotten how deadly front-end crashes can be. You'll find the Palisade is equipped with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control for easy city driving, blind spot collision avoidance assist, and a full head-up display. Your 12.3" digital gauge cluster is FULL digital this year, too, making it easier and safer to keep track of your vehicle's vital signs. In all, the Palisade is just plain safer than the Pilot. Maybe Honda will catch up next year, but in 2021, the Palisade is taking home the crown in safety.
