What i want to focus on now is the palisade experience im an engineer but im much more than that.
Im, a wife im, a mother, a friend and a proud daughter, family, is at the heart of everything i do. I know the same is true of my colleagues here in the u.s in south korea and around the world thats something we share with. So many of our palisade owners family is what this vehicle is all about. So, instead of a tech talk, i want to have a family talk right now, id like you to meet a very special mom. More than three million people follow this city girl gone mom through her tick, tock and instagram videos, her personal blog, her column on today and her podcast, the mom confidential. Please welcome danielle schaefer welcome danny. Thank you bc, its so good to see you so good to be in new york. Let me from new york grew up here. Tell us about your journey from city girl to the socal suburbs, basically, im just a new york city girl who picked up a sailor in a bar and a few years later were raising our wonderful family in southern california, and i share experiences with the world. So when i saw you online, i thought this is who we designed the vehicle for a large family kids ranging in age from well. Our youngest brody is six going on 20 romans, 10 dylans, 14 and jackson. Our oldest is 16.. You have kids from the car seat to the drivers seat right weve got every position covered so thats.
Why we reached out to you? We thought we could invite danny and her family to spend a few days with the new palisade and do what they do so. Well, which is share their experiences and we had a blast lets start with first impressions. How do you like palisades new exterior? Well, i think those faces say it all. We love it. Look at the colors. Look at this. Are you serious? Oh my god. Oh, this is so cool. Look inside this is nice. Oh my gosh. Can someone take me to dance in this? Can i drive yes? What struck me is its tough, yet chic, so the styling does matter. Oh yes, seeing this big, beautiful palisade in the driveway just gets us excited for whatevers. Next, the reality is family life, isnt all about fun and road trips. So much of my drive time involves taking my kids to activities erin shopping for six. An suv like this makes it all good. How do you like the inside of the vehicle, its so beautiful? It feels like modern luxury furniture, and obviously we love all that space. I mean look at that face nice man of a few words. Nice is bobby, for i love it and the kids just took it over whoa. This screen is huge. Look i connected my playlist. Hey, look theres a charger right here. Hey guys theres one back here too everyones got a device for school for games, so those usb plugs all around is a great feature.
By the way those are usbc outlets. They give you higher power for faster charging. Now tell me: what do you think about the in car wi fi hotspot obc? I live in my car im having zoom calls outside the dance studio when dylan and brody are practicing im writing my column at lacrosse practice. Im working and parenting full time so having in car wi fi makes all of that possible. Now i know youre not brand new to suvs did any of the features. Surprise you ill start with something i didnt know. I would love so much the hands free, lift gate. Two hands are never enough in my world. Is there anything else? Definitely the power folding seats im, not a wimp. I lift weights, i lift six year olds, but those heavy suv seats can be so hard to wrestle around by hand, and that assumes you have two to freehand with the palisade its, not an issue. I could switch it up with the touch of a button and even my little ones can use it lets talk safety. How important are safety features and safety ratings when youre, considering a purchase safety, its everything? I want the safest vehicle possible for my family honestly, i wouldnt buy a car that didnt have a top safety rating and the latest safety features, and we let you experience. One of those new safety features when we placed an object behind your palisade, tell us how it went.
Oh right, that was amazing when i was backing out of a parking spot. There was an obstacle behind me and the palisade just put on the brakes with the kids around the car. All the time, thats really something i want. So speaking about safety lets talk about jackson, your 16 year old student driver. How are you feeling about that scared seriously? I know hes careful and responsible, but i totally get it. Ive had a 16 year old with a new drivers license, but you dont have to worry about jackson, because jackson and i had a little time – oh yeah, so jackson, how do you like it its really nice? Is it fast, 291 horsepower good enough for you cool? You know what else is cool when youre driving the palisade out there, all by yourself, your parents can keep tabs on you? What do you mean if you drive too fast, dad and mom get a speed, alert? Really yeah and if you try to sneak the car out too late, they get a curfew alert and if you decide to head out a little too far from home alert, yup its like mom and dad they always watching bc. Thank you so much for that. No worries those features. I told jackson about theyre all part of hyundai blue link and theyre free for the first three years now lets talk about one more thing: families everywhere are looking for. The keys right, whos got the keys.
You guys fix that. I just open my iphone and use the digital key to get in and go in the new palisade, our hyundai digital key works with both android and iphone, and you can share the digital key with your family, a friend you can do it remotely and you decide When they can have access and you can set the time limits, i love that so lets talk about the places you guys love to go. We love the whole outdoor thing. We love the beach bobby and jackson are both surfers and all of us, ski or snowboard. In fact, we have a cabin in the mountains in big bear. It takes a few hours to get up there, but its our little slice of heaven pal state is made for those road trips. Did you try the heated seats all three rows? Oh yeah! No! Behind left behind, we all get that nice warm up after a day on the slopes, oh even better. I love the ergo motion seat its like getting a therapeutic massage lets get back to safety when youre driving the family in a big suv. Do you ever find its hard to see whats behind you? Definitely in the rearview mirror? All i see is heads and theyre getting taller all the time. Palisades solves that issue with the available full display digital rear view, mirror a camera sends an unobstructed rear view to the mirrors digital surface. Palisade also has smart cruise control and highway driving assist which make driving more convenient on those long trips on the highway.
They can help the driver maintain the vehicles lane position while keeping a set, speed and distance from the car ahead. They can also assist in slow speed traffic, helping you react safely when another vehicle cuts in ahead of you. I love the palisade im so glad we had this chance to get to know you and to get an early preview im now on the list to get one. This summer we had so much fun. Getting to know you and your wonderful family enjoy the new palisade.
