2021 Hyundai Palisade vs. 2021 Dodge Durango

Gifted with a long list of standard features that car buyers will surely love, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade easily makes its way to the top of the list for midsize SUVs. This one has other functionalities that you will certainly look forward too. That spacious interior will surely be a delight.

In the case of the 2021 Dodge Durango, expect the addition of the SRT Hellcat model on its list. This one also promises a refreshed interior and exterior styling, as well as ample seating space inside. It boasts of a straightforward infotainment system.

Design & Style

One of the things that you will truly love in the 2021 Palisade when it comes to design and style is its large cabin, and rugged exterior. This ride has well-cushioned seats inside, which exceeds the expectations of the eight passengers the cabin space can hold. The driver will find plenty of space to make seating adjustments to his comfort too. Aside from those abundant legroom and headroom inside, there are also plenty of soft-touch surfaces for the ride.

The 2021 Dodge Durango, on the other hand, boasts of a spacious cargo area, which can expand to 85.1 cubic feet once the last two rows of seats are folded down. Basically, it has two rows of seats that can accommodate five people. The three rows of seats can be enjoyed with higher trim levels, which means you need to spend more. There is an abundant room in the first and second rows for this ride. While it promises a refreshed interior styling, it does not really meet buyers’ expectations.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Palisade is blessed to have a straightforward infotainment system. This is paired with an eight-inch touch screen that responds quickly to user inputs and displays clear graphics every time. The simple menu layout makes it a no-nonsense interface. You also get to enjoy smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as other features like the five USB ports, Bluetooth interface, and HD radio. Among its list of safety features are adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assists, automatic high-beam headlights, rear-seat alert, and forward collision warning with pedestrian detection.

The Durango’s latest version, on the other hand, uses an 8.4-inch touch screen for its infotainment setup. This is paired with a seven-inch instrument cluster display, and features other amenities like six speakers, four USB ports, satellite radio, voice recognition, and smartphone integration. It is upsetting to note that it only has a rearview camera as a standard safety feature.


The 2021 Palisade carries a base trim V6 engine, 3.8-liter version which can yield a maximum of 291 horsepower. That of the 3.6-liter, V6 engine in the Durango can accommodate up to 293 horsepower. That of the Durango’s engine is quite problematic since it feels underpowered during heavy acceleration.

The Bottom Line

There are indeed a lot of things to love in the 2021 Hyundai Palisade. Even with a refreshed Durango trying its best to impress, the Hyundai is a better option.
