I have an AWD Limited and drove it home from 208 miles away. Mostly freeway and about 11 miles of town. Drove into my driveway and it read 28mpg. Fabulous!!!!

Are you guys driving in eco mode? I've been primarily using comfort mode. I've only had my Palisade for about 10 days, and I'm not getting much better than 15-16 mpg. Does it take time for engine break-in (like in the old days)? Perhaps living at high altitude makes a difference?

We purchased our Palisade in Medford. Oregon. We drove to Redding, CA which is about 150 miles. When we left Medford we had it in Comfort at the suggestion of the salesman. About halfway we were only getting 17.5 mpg so I switched it to ECO and it immediately started climbing. When we got to Redding it was 23.9 with it rated at 24 highway for the AWD. We filled up in Redding left it in ECO and drove home to Concord, CA about 210 miles. When we drove into our driveway we were at exactly 28mpg. So it is ECO for me. Not looking for sport driving but I am thrilled with the mileage.

Tom, thank you. I will try driving in ECO mode. Did you notice a significant reduction in power in ECO mode? I guess for long road trips, we could put it in ECO mode and then switch into sport mode if rapid acceleration is needed for passing etc.

That’s what smart mode does automatically: switch between comfort, eco and sport based on your driving at that point in time.

I have not found a problem with quickness or power using ECO. You will just have to try each mode for performance and decide for yourself between power and economy. Have fun doing it.

I did not drive long enough in Comfort and besides that it was a winter pass that had been closed the night before so I was being careful. Again, I think the only way to find out is to try each method for yourself and decide. I have found no power problems with passing on the freeway or getting up to speed on the freeway. I have not yet tried to pass another car on a two lane road with oncoming traffic in the distance to get a feel for that. I am pretty much going for the best mileage anyway. Speed doesn't matter to me. When in the mountains I know mileage will decrease with uphill driving but love doing it so then gas mileage does not matter to me.
