The entry-level Palisade SE features a stylish exterior with a bold grille that is flanked by automatic headlights and LED daytime running lights. Other highlights include privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The eight-seat interior is sparely equipped, but owners will find air conditioning and an 8-inch Display Audio with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. There’s also a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, second row power folding seats and an underfloor storage compartment.
On the safety front, the model comes standard with Lane Keeping Assist, Rear Parking Distance Warning and Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection. Other highlights include Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go and a Rear View Monitor with parking guidelines.
The mid-level Palisade SEL starts at $33,500 and has a more premium appearance thanks to a satin chrome grille and satin chrome door handles with integrated “welcome lights.” The model also has silver roof rails and side mirrors featuring integrated LED turn signals.
The cabin is also more luxurious as it boasts a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats and a dual-zone automatic climate control system with an air ionizer. Other niceties include second row captain’s chairs, power lumbar adjustment for the driver’s seat and a proximity key with a push button ignition.
The $44,700 Palisade Limited goes even further as it has a “premium” grille, dual sunroofs and LED lighting units. The model also has a hands-free liftgate, rain-sensing wipers, a self-leveling rear suspension and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Moving into the cabin, drivers will find premium Nappa leather upholstery, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation. Other upgrades include heated / ventilated seats, ambient lighting and a wireless smartphone charger. Rounding out the highlights are power third row seats, a head up display, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and an 8-way power driver’s seat with four-way power lumbar adjustment.
Regardless of which model is selected, all Palisades are powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 291 hp (217 kW / 295 PS) and 262 lb-ft (355 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system for an additional $1,700.
