Meet the future of wheelchair accessible vehicles with the all new 2020 Hyundai Palisade and the 2020 Kia Telluride! Both of these Korean cousins have upped their game in 2020 and are legitimate near-luxury mobility vehicles. They are both built on the same platform, have the same engine (3.8-liter V-6), with the same output, connected to the same transmission, have the same number of seats, as well as similar features and technology. Ironically, both the Palisade and Telluride are also geographic names. The Palisade refers to the luxurious Pacific Palisades neighborhood above Santa Monica Bay in Los Angeles, as opposed to say, the New Jersey Palisades. The Telluride is named after Telluride, CO - originally derived from the mineral tellurium, a non-metallic element associated with mineral deposits of gold that were found in Colorado’s precious metal–filled mountains. Today, Telluride is best known for its “white gold” - in this case, snow - making it perfect for those who love adventure, and to enjoy in an all-new Kia Telluride. What’s more is both the Palisade and Telluride are nearly matched in price and value. The Kia Telluride was named the 2020 MotorTrend SUV of the Year, however, given their similarities, you really can’t go wrong with either of these two.
These exciting new conversions are brought to us by Freedom Motors, an industry leader in creative accessible vehicle conversion and technology. Both vehicles will come with an always reliable rear entry ramp, a much sought after conversion allowing users to park virtually anywhere without the worry of being “parked in.”
Bringing new wheelchair conversion vehicles to the market has always been a cornerstone of Freedom Motors’ work. They understand that wheelchair minivans are not for everyone, and work diligently to find alternatives in all possible chassis. For those who might prefer a modified wheelchair SUV, the handicap accessible Hyundai Palisade or a handicap accessible Kia Telluride will make a reliable and affordable alternative. Both of which offer interior height to accommodate many wheelchair heights and models, a ramp wide enough to allow larger mobility devices, and ground clearance to drive up inclines and over bumps without incident, making them as accessible as they are drivable.
Other exclusive Freedom Motors conversions include the Buick Enclave (available with either rear or side-entry ramp), the Chevrolet Traverse (available with rear or side-entry ramp) and the all new 2020 Kia Soul (rear-entry ramp).
