    These SUV designed not for drag drag racing. Safety, reliability, easy operation and comfortable riding should be the key point to look for.

      @John Lee listen I had an old and a now a 22 and I have to say even though the old on was a nice suv. You would almost think that the new one is from a different brand. Just incomparable until you’ve had both

      @Chris H Look I will take the Genesis anyway even if I have to pay a little more. The MDX is at least $10k for similarly equipped Telluride but you have no problem with this comparison. I owned a 2015 MDX. It was a boat with old tech. It may have improved since but not enough.

      @Chris H Numb nut, we all know this because the Telluride is hot rn. But I can wait. Demand will come down and dealers won’t try to screw you over. If I wanted true luxury I would get a Genesis GV70 or GV80, which will leave the MDX in the dust for similar price.

      Telluride’s are going for $10k over sticker. Just so that you can understand, that means that they are charging mdx money. Let me know if you need me to explain that for you again.

    They aren’t remotely in the same league. The Telluride is a great car for the money (if you’re not leasing) but it has none of the driving characteristics of the MDX 2022.

    Palisade will have an edge over Telluride here due to it’s more aerodynamic shape and curves whereas Telluride is more boxy shaped vehicle where wind plays an important role

    This clearly comes down to the driver because the results were just all over the place... I've driven both, and the Kia is slow as ass. The MDX is not super great off the line, but passing, it would make you think it has way more than 290hp.

    Thanks for performing this drag race. I am actually currently deciding between the Telluride SX vs a base MDX. Both similar price points. According to other reviews, I had the impression speed and passing power was much inferior in the Telluride which you obviously just proved is not the case. Will def test drive both. This is great content 👍🏼

      I was going to buy the Telluride myself till I test drove the 2022 Acura MDX that I now own. Everyone is different so I'd encourage you to test drive both but I am super super happy with mine. Take it around a corner and down shift with the paddles and you'll see the difference. Best of luck!

      Don't worry about speed. All most every single vehicle in the mainstream/premium midsize 3-row segment does 0-60mph in around 7 seconds. Give or take .5 seconds. So whenever someone says one is slower than the other, they probably are lying or are clueless.

      A truck is a family hauler too "bro" and is still slow compared to sports cars, even modified ones unless they're pushing over 1000hp, but then a 1000hp car would kick it's ass again because weight matters in a race. I guess you've never heard of the GMC typhoon suv though or the lambo or porshe or aston Martin or jaguar or Alfa Romeo that would all put cars to shame up to 150mph when the aerodynamics take over and the car can finally catch up
