Kia's biggest SUV debuts with a splash

Sitting above the Sorento in Kia's lineup, the Telluride is an all-new three-row midsize SUV for 2020. With a stylish exterior, an interior with a near-luxury finish, and plenty of passenger space, the Telluride can comfortably accommodate as many as eight in its three rows of seats, and even adults can use the third row. And when it's fully loaded with passengers, the Telluride still offers an accommodating trunk. All Tellurides are powered by a 291-hp 3.8-liter V6 driving the front wheels, with all-wheel drive offered as an option.

Kia's reputation for value is evident here—the Telluride is well equipped and competitively priced against rivals including the Dodge Durango, Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, and Hyundai Palisade. Its 100,000-mile, 10-year powertrain warranty is a standout in the industry, and the Kia also impresses with its level of standard equipment. Four trim levels—LX, S, EX, and SX—are available. The entry-level LX covers most everything you'd want, with parking sensors, selectable driving modes, five USB ports, an 8-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration among its extensive standard equipment. The S gains two captain's chairs in the second row, reducing seating capacity to seven, and adds bigger 20-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, and a power-adjustable driver's seat. The EX and SX up the equipment to luxury-car levels, adding plenty of comfort- and convenience-enhancing features. The Telluride makes an appealing SUV choice if you want space, comfort, and quality.
