Some people are buying the Palisade because of that new gear system in all Hyundai models. Just a matter of personal preference. The instrument cluster is 12.5 inches in PalisadeDon't forget the wonky push button shift system. That and the look is a non-starter for me. Otherwise I'd have gone Palisade vs. waiting. But I guess that's prob. why there isn't as bad of a wait for the Palisade vs. the Telluride. I could walk into a dealer today and grab just about whatever Palisade I wanted. I see them stacked up there at one by my house. I hear to order one to your specifications can take a while though since someone told me they boat them over. But I would imagine you could dealer locate one and find what you want that way.
