Subtle differences between the Telluride and Palisade

In the chart above, you will notice a lot of similarities already. The price is nearly identical, and the seating is also identical with both offering room for up to eight passengers with a third-row bench or seven passengers with extra comfort provided for the second-row passengers by way of captain’s chairs.

You will notice some differences in terms of efficiency. Though both of these models feature the same 3.8-liter V6 engine with the exact same specs, the Telluride with its sleeker design provides better efficiency in the city.

It’s the design that is really the star of the show for the Telluride, and this may be a deciding factor for many. With bold futuristic lines, a modern grille, and an interior that is easy to fall in love with, many are already choosing the Telluride in this comparison.

Another advantage of the Telluride’s smart and attractive design is that it provides a lot more cargo room. Behind the third row, you get 21 cubic-feet of room to play around with. If you fold that third row down, then you still get 46 cubic-feet and if you fold the second row down too then you get 87 cubic-feet.
