All Wheel Drive (AWD)

All Wheel Drive (AWD) delivers engine power to front and rear wheels for maximum traction. AWD is useful when extra traction is required, such as when driving on, muddy, wet, or snow-covered roads.

To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH:

  • Avoid high speeds when cornering or turning.
  • Do not make quick steering wheel movements, such as sharp lane changes or fast, sharp turns.
  • The risk of a rollover is greatly increased if you lose control of your vehicle at highway speeds.
    Loss of control often occurs if two or more wheels drop off the roadway and the driver over steers to reenter the roadway.
  • In the event your vehicle leaves the roadway, do not steer sharply. Instead, slow down before pulling back into the travel lanes.
  • Always wash your vehicle thoroughly after off road use, especially the bottom of the vehicle.
  • Be sure to equip all four tires with the correct size and type.
  • Make sure that a full time AWD vehicle is towed by a flat bed tow truck.

All Wheel Drive (AWD) Operation

Auto AWD mode (Normal diving)
If the AWD system determines there is a need for four wheel drive, the engine’s driving power is distributed to all four wheels automatically.

Multi terrain mode
In the multi terrain mode, four-wheel drive, engine, transmission, braking is controlled to achieve optimal driving performance depending on the mode selected (SNOW/MUD/SAND).

AWD Operation

(Normal diving)

In the AWD AUTO mode, under normal operating conditions, the vehicle operates similar to conventional 2WD vehicles. If the system determines there is a need for four wheel drive, the engine’s driving power is distributed to all four wheels automatically.

Use this mode when driving on normal roads.If you select the “Driving force distribution” in the cluster, Driving force distribution (AWD) state is displayed.

In this mode, the vehicle can start stably by properly distributing the driving force of the vehicle on slippery roads such as snowy roads. And you can drive safely by suppressing wheel slip.

  • The main goal of AWD Lock mode is to allow a driver to maximize the vehicle’s traction under extreme driving conditions such as unpaved off-road, sandy roads, and muddy roads.
  • AWD Lock mode is in operation only when a vehicle travels at 25 mph (40 km/h) or less. When traveling at 25 mph (40 km/h) or faster, the mode will switch to AWD Auto. When traveling at 20 mph (30 km/h) or less, the mode will switch back to AWD Lock.
  • Press the AWD Lock mode switch again to switch back to AWD Auto.

When the AWD LOCK mode is deactivated, a shock may be felt as the drive power is delivered entirely to the front wheels. This shock is not a mechanical failure.

For safe AWD operation

Before driving

  • Make sure all passengers are wearing seat belts.
  • Sit upright and closer to the steering wheel than usual. Adjust the steering wheel to a position comfortable for you to drive.
  • Use snow tires or tire chains.
    Keep sufficient distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Apply engine braking during deceleration by using the paddle shifter (manual shift mode) and manually selecting a lower gear.
  • Avoid speeding, rapid acceleration, sudden brake applications, and sharp turns to prevent skids.

When using Snow Tires, mount them on all four wheels.
When using tire chains, install them on the rear tires. However, driving speed must be below 20 mph (30 km/h) and minimize the driving distance.

High-speed or long-term driving with tire chains installed may malfunction or damage the AWD system.
For more details on Snow Tires and Tire Chains, refer to “Winter Driving” section later in this chapter.

Driving in sand or mud

  • Maintain slow and constant speed.
  • Use tire chains driving in mud if necessary.
  • Keep sufficient distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.Reduce vehicle speed and always check the road condition.
    Avoid speeding, rapid acceleration, sudden brake applications, and sharp turns to prevent getting stuck.

When the vehicle is stuck in snow, sand or mud, place a nonslip material under the drive wheels to provide traction OR slowly spin the wheels in forward and reverse directions which causes a rocking motion that may free the vehicle.
However, avoid running the engine continuously at high RPM, doing so may damage the AWD system.

Driving up or down hills

  • Driving uphill
    • Before starting off, check if it is possible to drive uphill.
    • Drive as straight as possible.
  • Driving downhill
    • Do not change gear while driving downhill. Select gear before driving downhill.
    • Drive slowly using engine braking while driving downhill.
    • Drive straight as possible.

Exercise extreme caution driving up or down steep hills. The vehicle may flip over depending on the grade, terrain, water and mud conditions.

Do not drive across the contour of steep hills. A slight change in the wheel angle can destabilize the vehicle, or a stable vehicle may lose stability if the vehicle stops its forward motion. Your vehicle may roll over and lead to a serious injury or death.

Driving through water

  • Try to avoid driving in deep standing water. It may stall your engine and clog your exhaust pipes.
  • If you need to drive in water, stop your vehicle, set the vehicle in AWD LOCK mode and drive under 5 mph (8 km/h).
  • Do not change gear while driving in water.

Always drive slowly in water. If you drive too fast, water may get into the engine compartment and wet the ignition system causing your vehicle to suddenly stop.

Additional driving conditions

  • Become familiar with the off-road conditions before driving.
  • Always pay attention when driving off-road and avoid dangerous areas.
  • Drive slowly when driving in heavy wind.
  • Reduce vehicle speed when cornering. The center of gravity of AWD vehicles is higher than conventional 2WD vehicles, making them more likely to roll over when you rapidly turn corners.
  • Always hold the steering wheel firmly when you are driving off-road.

Do not grab the inside of the steering wheel when you are driving off-road. You may hurt your arm by a sudden steering maneuver or from steering wheel rebound due to an impact with objects on the ground. You could lose control of the steering wheel which may lead to serious injury or death.

Emergency Precautions

When replacing tires, be sure to equip all four tires with the same size, type, tread patterns, brand and load-carrying capacity.

Do not use tire and wheel with different size and type from the one originally installed on your vehicle. It can affect the safety and performance of your vehicle, which could lead to steering failure or rollover causing serious injury.

In an emergency situation, a compact spare tire (if equipped) or Tire Mobility Kit (if equipped) may be used. But, do not use the compact spare tire continuously. Repair or replace the original tire as soon as possible to avoid failure of the differential or AWD system.


2024 Hyundai Palisade Dynamometer testing 06Never start or run the engine while an AWD vehicle is raised on a jack. The vehicle can slip or roll off of a jack causing serious injury or death to you or those nearby.

AWD vehicles must be towed with a wheel lift and dollies or flatbed equipment with all the wheels off the ground. For more details, refer to
“Towing” section in chapter 8.

Vehicle inspection

  • If the vehicle needs to be operated on a vehicle lift do not attempt to stop any of the four wheels from turning. This could damage the AWD system.
  • Never engage the parking brake while running the engine on vehicle lift. This may damage the AWD system.

Dynamometer testing
An AWD vehicle must be tested on a special four wheel chassis dynamometer.

[A] : Roll tester (Speedometer)
[B] : Temporary free roller

An AWD vehicle should not be tested on a 2WD roll tester. If a 2WD roll tester must be used, perform the following procedure:

  1. Check the tire pressures recommended for your vehicle.
  2. Place the rear wheels on the roll tester for a speedometer test as shown in the illustration.
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Place the front wheels on the temporary free roller as shown in the illustration.

Keep away from the front of the vehicle while the vehicle is in gear on the dynamometer. The vehicle can jump forward and cause serious injury or death.

AWD malfunction
If the AWD warning light stays on the instrument cluster, your vehicle may have a malfunction with the AWD system.
When the AWD warning light
illuminates, have the vehicle be checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer as soon as possible.
