On your quest to purchase the SUV that fits the needs of you and your family, there will likely be a variety to choose from. While the 2020 Hyundai Palisade may be intriguing, we at Napleton Ford believe the 2020 Ford Explorer is the proper fit. Contact us today to learn more.

Performance Features

Our salespeople can tell you that the 2020 Ford Explorer trumps the competition, specifically the 2020 Hyundai Palisade. For saving gas while you take your car on the open road, the Explorer is equipped with a standard EPA-estimated 21/28 MPG city/hwy1 fuel economy rating. Conversely, the Palisade only can talk of an EPA-estimated 19/26 MPG city/hwy2 fuel economy rating. Just as well, you'll enjoy the thrill of acceleration along I-94 with the Explorer's 300 horsepower3 and 310 lb.-ft. of torque3, compared to the Palisade's 271 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. Perhaps most noticeable, all of this can be accomplished on the Explorer's standard turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine, an environmentally-friendly choice compared to the Palisade's 3.8L V6 powertrain. Furthermore, with 10-speed automatic transmission compared to the Palisade's 8-speed automatic transmission, you'll have seamless gear shifting capabilities with the Explorer.

How Spacious is the 2020 Ford Explorer?

In more ways than one, the 2020 Ford Explorer maintains a large enough capacity to make its inner confines worthwhile. For those hoping to pack up an extra bag or two of luggage, you'll be in good fortune with 47.9 cubic ft. of cargo volume4 behind the second-row seats offered in the 2020 Ford Explorer. In contrast, the Palisade can only speak of a standard 45.8 cubic ft. of standard cargo volume4 behind its second-row seats. Plus, each row features an area of larger dimensions for you and your passengers to feel comfortable. The Explorer's 59.2 inches of front hip room, 61.9 inches of second-row shoulder room, and 32.2 inches of third-row legroom tops the Palisade's 58.1 inches of front hip room, 60.8 inches of second-row shoulder room, and 31.4 inches of third-row legroom. And not to be forgotten, the 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat of the Explorer offers more opportunities to find a convenient sitting position than does the Palisade's 6-way power-adjustable driver's seat.

Safety Elements

Due in large part to a number of driver-assist technologies associated with Ford Co-Pilot 360™, the 2020 Ford Explorer is prepared to provide you a secure presence while en route to your destination. The Palisade can't boast of the Explorer's Sidewind Stabilization5 amenity. This feature - which takes into account wind factor that could otherwise impact the balance of your SUV - is especially beneficial in and around the Windy City, or other areas of the Midwest where inclement weather is a concern. Plus, the Explorer brings about a standard Blind Spot Information System5, whereas Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist is only an available feature through the Palisade. Certainly not least of all, with Enhanced Active Park Assist5 that's unique to the Explorer, further aid is provided to perform daily operations successfully.
