2023 Kia Telluride Overview

The 2023 Kia Telluride and 2023 Hyundai Palisade are a couple of the most exciting rivals in the industry. A comparison between the two is a mandatory offering by any dealership serving Ohio, but at Drive Taylor, we go the extra mile for you. Just knowing the features of both isn’t going to be organized enough to leave an overall impression of how they stack up. Because of this, we’ll be comparing the models in different feature categories, such as interior or driver-assist features. By the end of our brief review, you should have an idea over which one of these models is right for your family.

Boardman OH - 2023 Kia Telluride's Overview

Performance – Kia Dealer serving Boardman OH

Rivals often appear similar at first. When you look at the 2023 Kia Telluride vs 2023 Hyundai Palisade, they at first appear to have the very same performance. The Palisade’s 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque comes from a 3.8L V6 engine. The Telluride grabs the same type of engine, but that’s where the similarities end. A new off-road X-Line is added to the lineup this year and brings with it increased ground clearance and skid plates. If you want to hit trails this year, even lightly, please do take the Kia Telluride X-Line models with you.

Interior – 2023 Kia Telluride in Boardman OH

Both models come with a new 12.3″ display, and that’s important to both of their values. People want a large touchscreen these days because it allows people to enjoy the most that their infotainment systems have to offer. The designs of both touchscreens are extremely different, though, with the Telluride getting a very distinct “touchscreen first” design, while the Palisade throws in a “touchscreen in the background” design. The digital driver’s panels are also very different, with the Palisade seemingly doing an old school “bubble” area around its digital centers. The Telluride’s interior just seems to flow more naturally in line with the way that the human mind and hands work. You’ll feel steadier commanding the Telluride’s touchscreen and digital panels than you will the Palisade.

Kia Telluride Mechanical specs

The 2023 Hyundai Palisade is expected to keep the same 5,000 pound tow rating that it had last year. The Telluride is serving Ohio with a very pleasant surprise: upgraded tow ratings that reach 5,500 pounds. 500 pounds is a lifetime in SUV capability. If you have extra large objects to tow along with your family during adventures, the Telluride is the better SUV to bring home with you. Most exciting, though, is that the new equipment doesn’t effect the more upscale good looks of the Telluride. When you choose an SUV with larger tow ratings, you have the freedom to travel wherever you choose. Camping trips, boating trips, and ATV trips suddenly become possible with nothing to hold your adventures back. The X-Line series of the newest Telluride also shows off a lot of new mechanical features on the latest Telluride. This year’s model is just tougher.

Winner: 2023 Telluride – Kia Dealership in Boardman OH

A 2023 Kia Telluride is a true winner for American families. It gets just the right balance of affordability and luxury, all while maintaining one of the most impressive SUV performances of the year. Drivers will love the new panoramic 12.3″ display, best-in-class passenger volume, and sturdy, high-performing mechanical design. It rides to the tune of 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. While the Palisade gets the same amount of horsepower, you’ll find Kia’s driver-assist features and suspension systems hold up better in fiercer driving conditions. Be sure to check out the X-Line Telluride models this year if you want to do some off-roading in your spare time. The newest updates to the rugged X-Line are gorgeous when applied to the Telluride.
