Agreed mostly, but the interior isn't bad.

It's not even in production yet, is it? You might have seen a pre-production test unit.

This is on my radar. It'd be a nice step up from my Sedona.

I agree, especially with TELLURIDE across the back.

Next step: Add an option to get the 3.3 twin-turbo, tune it for torque, & bump towing up to 6500 or more.

Configurator is online. Not many exterior color options or variety, still liking the Moss Green.

I don’t think the interior looks to bad. Guess price point determines that. Saw first commercial last night. That’s no bull lol..Compares it to a bull,Showing it rough and tough in the mud then they state how it has locking diff with torque vectoring. Let’s see..here it is..

The fact that people need cars to look "masculine" just says so much.

So it's wrong for people to want certain types of vehicles that look tough, rugged, staunch, robust....etc? all of which are adjectives for being masculine.

I just like boxy designs. I can always get more into a box than a sphere. In today's design language that is considered masculine. Call it what you want, it is just more practical.

Peace,

Greg

In any design language that is correct. Curvy, shapely (Heard of Curves gym for women only?) is directly related to the female form/femininity. Whereas chiseled and angular are decidedly masculine. It's how humans see forms.

I agree a box is more space efficient and when going for utility is the better option.

For sporty I'll take a curvy Jag F-Type over a boxy whatever any day.

You can still have a car that is big burly tough looking etc.... while not being masculine.

Paint the wheels and headlamp buckets silver.

Now it's no longer masculine, but it's the same ****ing truck.

I do like the looks of this as it’s very Range Rover/X5M in its design. I just picked up a Tiguan RLine with a third row. Similar kind of profile without the high sticker. I really don’t like a lot of the busy designs from the Japanese and Americans. The Edge is decent but the ones we were looking at were expensive with the kit we wanted. Save the 4Run with third row, that’s pretty much the case across the segment. I will definitely check this out though as it might be a little cheaper than the competition while offering more stuff.

Ok. Big, burly and tough I would never associate with being effeminate. But it's ok if you do. My point being is that what does it matter if a person wants a vehicle to be masculine.........or feminine?

The Scio makes up for the estrogen producing Mustang that you have.

This has a lot of tech and luxury features. It's a little odd that it has a manual tilt/tele steering wheel instead of one that is keyed to the memory profile; same with movable pedals.

Yet it has heated and cooled rear seats as an option. I checked the Palisade and it's the same.

I'm assuming the Palisade will cost a few grand more so I'm interested in what will be different. The only thing I've found so far (Other than design) is the 3rd row is power fold on the Palisade and manual on the Telluride.
