Performance

Big power for big adventures.

The Palisade boasts advanced powertrains with a combination of fuel economy,  power, and overall performance.

Drive Mode System

The Palisade is as versatile as you are – ready to go wherever you go, whenever you want to go there. To cater for your demands, the Palisade features four distinct driving modes. Comfort takes on everyday driving with ease, Eco keeps your fuel use to a minimum, while Sport gives you the power and crisp responses you need to tackle any adventure. The fourth mode, Smart, selects a drive mode for you based on your current driving style.

HTRAC All-Wheel Drive with Terrain Mode

Experience superior handling & control for a new level of driving confidence. HTRAC™ actively adjusts the driving power distribution to all 4 wheels to achieve optimal balance on every kind of road condition.

Unlike traditional mechanical on demand all-wheel-drive systems already introduced, HTRAC™ variably controls the braking and power to the wheels. In combination with the drive modes, HTRAC™ improves acceleration, stability and fuel efficiency. The system increases traction on snow, gravel and, of course, on regular road surfaces while enhancing cornering performance. (2.2 Diesel models only)

Paddle Shifters

All Palisades feature steering wheel mounted paddle shifters which enable fingertip up and down shifting for even greater control and a sportier driving feel.
