What about the engine under the hood?

Each Palisade model is powered by the same capable engine in the 2021 model year. This 3.8-liter V6 engine is capable of creating up to 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque and comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The standard drivetrain for the Palisade is front-wheel-drive but all-wheel drive is offered for all trim levels except for the new Calligraphy trim where it comes standard.

Does the Palisade come with any standard safety features?

Safety is a priority for any family-oriented vehicle and the Palisade offers tons of modern safety features and driver aids that keep every passenger safe. In fact, many of these safety features are standard on the base trim level. Drivers can utilize standard adaptive cruise control to maintain the distance they set between the Palisade and the vehicle ahead and rear parking sensors to alert them of items in their path when moving in reverse they may not see. Other standard features include lane keeping assist that steers the Palisade back into the lane if drifting is detected, and forward collision mitigation that warns the driver of an impending collision, even going as far to apply the brakes if needed.
