Compare the 2020 Ford Explorer to the Competition in Alvin, TX

When you're on the hunt for the perfect three-row SUV, you'll discover that there are a lot of options to choose from. Taking the time to research and compare every model can take a lot of your time, which is why the team at Ron Carter Ford has done it for you. We've put up the 2020 Ford Explorer against some of the toughest competition, like the 2020 Hyundai Palisade, and we show you why the Ford Explorer is the best model to handle a variety of lifestyles. Check out how the two models compare down below!

Ford Explorer vs Hyundai Palisade

  • While the Palisade does equip a powerful 3.8 6-cylinder engine that delivers 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet, it fails to match up to the base powertrain on the Explorer, a 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine that pumps out 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Drivers who want more power can also upgrade to the 3.0-liter EcoBoost® twin-turbocharged V6.
  • The Ford Explorer lineup offers a 3.3-liter hybrid option for drivers who want to avoid spending too much time at the gas pump. The Palisade doesn't offer a similar engine package.
  • Need an SUV that can tow? When properly equipped, the Ford Explorer can tow a maximum of 5,600 pounds while the Hyundai three-row SUV only manages 5,000.
  • Both offer seating for seven passengers and over 152 cubic feet of space for all passengers to enjoy, but only passengers in the Ford Explorer will find more headroom and legroom in third-row.
  • When you need the most amount of cargo room for shopping trips or camping adventures, the Ford Explorer edges out the Hyundai Palisade with up to 87.8 cubic feet of storage to 86.4 cubic feet.
  • You'll find plenty of amenities in the Palisade, but the 2020 Ford Explorer doesn't lack for comforts. It comes standard with a tri-zone automatic climate control system, not available in the Hyundai SUV, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, also noticeably missing from the Hyundai lineup.
  • Both models offer a plethora of driver assistance features that make your commute a bit easier. The Ford SUV is standard with a Blind Spot Information System, which you'll need to pay more to unlock when you pick out a Hyundai Palisade model.
