The 2022 Palisade has many other features for aiding its performance and driving dynamics. Its engine channels power through an 8-speed automatic transmission with a shift-by-wire system. For manual shifting capabilities, the Palisade has a manual shift mode. Also, to help prevent the transmission from overheating, it features a cooling system.

With the Palisade, you have a choice of either a front-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive system. All models come standard with the front-wheel drive, while the all-wheel drive is an optional feature, so you’ll have to pay extra to get it. If you live in a climate with messy winter road conditions or want to head off-road, the all-wheel drive system is worth the additional cost. However, if you live in a year-round sunny and warm locale and only do on-road driving, the front-wheel drive will suffice.

For an extra layer of confidence in snowy driving conditions, the Palisade offers an available snow mode. Also, for customized driving, the Palisade has a drive mode select feature. Also, you can safely drive down a hill with the downhill brake control feature. 

The suspension of the Palisade has a MacPherson strut front and an independent multi-link rear set-up. With its motor-driven power steering system, the Palisade provides precise steering. Confident braking for the Palisade comes courtesy of the 4-wheel disc brakes.
