Yes, the drive-mode selector knob has a sand mode -- just don't expect Jeep-like performance.

An extra-long wheelbase helps smooth out the Palisade's ride and provide good interior room.

Palisade one-ups Honda's LaneWatch by piping live video feeds from the sideview cameras in the gauge cluster on both sides of the vehicle.

The 3.8-liter naturally aspirated Lambda II V6 delivers 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

Unusually for an engine in this type of application, it runs on the Atkinson Cycle, which is typically reserved for hybrid powertrains.

Hyundai has yet to reveal total cargo volume with the second- and third-row seats stowed, but that number figures to be pretty big.
