New Wheelchair Accessible SUV's

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. 

Freedom Motors

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 Wheelchair Accessible SUV Options

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).

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
