Wherever your journey takes you on or off-road Palisade proves itself to be a highly capable performer thanks to the innovative H-TRAC 4-wheel-drive system and Multi-Terrain Control. Whether you’re cruising along city streets or over the roughest terrain, Palisade handles the task with equal ease.
When the going gets tough, SNOW, MUD and SAND modes assure optimal tire traction over different types of rough terrain. A quick glance at the center cluster or AVN will confirm terrain mode status.
Simply select Snow Mode on the Multi-Terrain Control and H-TRAC’s advanced AWD system employs variable power delivery to the rear wheels to optimize tire traction on slippery snow-covered roads.
Ensures maximum traction even on muddy roads thanks to the new coupling unit provides electronically controlled torque distribution among the four wheels. On sensing individual wheel slip, the smart controller automatically compensates by increasing torque to the wheels with greater traction.
The smart controller automatically adjusts the power distribution ratio between the front/rear axles and will automatically allocate the correct amount of torque and/or braking power to individual wheels to ensure the highest level of safety on sand covered surfaces.
A simple push of the button switches between Drive and Terrain modes. Turn the knob to select the mode that suits you best: COMFORT for everyday driving, ECO for optimal fuel efficiency, SPORT for quicker acceleration or SMART which employs a learning algorithm that automatically adjusts gear shift intervals based on recent driving patterns.
Palisade comes with a choice of powertrains, both mated to a shift-by-wire eight-speed automatic transmission. The highly efficient and eco-friendly Gen II Lambda gasoline and R-series diesel engines deliver best-in-class power output and are in full compliance with local emission regulations.
