The 2024 Ford Explorer maintains its classic design, emphasizing comfort and utility. The exterior, largely unchanged, still reflects the traditional Explorer aesthetic, while the interior, recently revamped, holds improvements in tech integration and material quality.

Hyundai Palisade's 2024 model continues its sleek and modern design language. Its spacious interior is laden with high-quality materials and a sophisticated infotainment system.

Safety is a priority for the Explorer, with top marks from IIHS and features like a 360-degree camera and roll stability control. However, it does fall short in some areas, like reverse braking assist.

The Palisade, awarded a Top Safety Pick+ by IIHS, is packed with advanced safety features. It stands out as a safe choice in its category, rivalling even luxury SUVs.
