Amazing Value, Amazing Car
I won't go into too much detail, but suffice to say I explored every midsize SUV option out there in my price range, including both mainstream and luxury. What ultimately got me to settle on the Palisade is what I could get for the money. I was looking at top trims of all mainstream vehicles (Explorer, Pilot, Ascent, etc.), and the Palisade was at the top. It's a really nice place to be in, love the tech and features, and it's amazingly quiet (road depending) even at high speeds. I couldn't test drive a brand new one given the market, but for giggles while I was waiting on my car's valuation at CarMax, I sat in Merecedes', Audis, Lexus', and BMWs, and didn't have any luxury car envy. The interior is what's most important to me, as that's where I'll be spending my time in, and I love the Palisade (Calligraphy). I also test drove a new Acura and again it came down to what I could get for the money with the top Palisade vs a mid-range MDX.
Planning to drive this car until the wheels fall off!
