Alright, so let’s cut to the chase. A major selling point for a

model across any segment is an attractive design, and these days, buyers

want that butch and blocky look. The new Palisade certainly delivers on that front.

The outgoing model wasn’t really that bad to look at, but the new one, despite being just

a mid-cycle refresh, has upped the ante in a big way. The grille, in particular, which in our opinion, was a low point with the

cascading-style arrangement on the last model, now takes a big jump, both in terms of size and appeal.
