What kind of gas mileage are we getting on the palisade?

I've been averaging about 26 mpg with mostly highway driving in stop and go traffic in a fwd model.

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.

560 mile trip to beach and back - 26.8mpg
It is an 18.8 gallon capacity tank, so at 26.8 that comes to 503.84 if you ran it dry. Maybe you actually did better than 26.8

Most of the 2000 miles in my AWD Limited have been in town. Getting 19-20 mpg, almost exclusively in Smart mode with an admittedly exuberant driving style. Milage goes up into the 20's on highway runs but I've yet to really stretch its legs on the interstate.

Just took a road trip to CA and back about 1900 miles each way Limited AWD in comfort mode about 25 mpg when the wind wasnt pushing against us all in all was very happy with the gas mileage. I tried using eco and it didnt seem to do much better keep in mind we were driving 70-85 mph depending on the speed limit.

I am wondering if when in eco mode does it cut power to the AC and other components? As this can actually shorten the life span of the components does anyone know what the eco mode does and how it affects like your components that are given less power for that mode?

If you're driving 70-85mph, you're on a highway/freeway, meaning you're cruising at a steady speed for long distances. No stop & go and/or need for acceleration. So the gearbox is already in its highest gear. It's to be expected that Eco mode isn't going to do much better than that.

You use more gas when you accelerate than when you're at a steady speed. That's why highway mpg is always higher than city mpg. In the city, you need power often to get going again (red lights, stop signs, traffic... etc.). That's when Eco will help you, at the expense of performance.

components still get all the power they need
Eric hit it right on the head, eco makes no difference out on the road unless there is a tie up

One of the instrument cluster display options shows what mode you are in (at least it does on the Limited). If in Smart mode, the display shows you mostly going between Eco and Comfort. Sport mode, IMHO, really changes the car's character. Much quicker response and perhaps better steering feel. If I wasn't worried about mileage and pollution I would stay in Sport all the time.
