2020 Kia Telluride - First Drive Review of Kia's New 3-Row SUV

Added by AutomotiveUploads
We sent special correspondent Elana Scherr to Colorado where snowy mountains served as a stunning backdrop for a first drive of the 2020 Kia Telluride. Elana drove the Telluride through the red rock canyons near Gateway, Colorado, to the small ski town of Telluride, for which Kia's new three-row SUV is named.

The 2020 Kia Telluride is a midsize crossover, the biggest yet in Kia's lineup. It's loosely based on the Kia Sorento but larger inside and out. The exterior design is boxy and purposeful. Inside, the Kia is not only roomy but surprisingly luxurious, with many standard safety features and options normally associated with higher-end vehicles, such as heated and cooled second-row seats and rear sunroof.

The 2020 Telluride gets a 3.8-liter V6 with 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That V6 is paired with Kia's eight-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive is standard. (All-wheel drive is optional.) The Telluride will have four trim levels: LX, EX, S and SX. Depending on equipment, it'll have a maximum tow rating of 5,000 pounds. Those are typical power and towing numbers for the class.

The EPA estimates the Telluride returns 23 mpg in combined city/highway driving from the front-wheel-drive versions and 21 mpg with AWD. Both figures are above-average for the three-row crossover SUV class.

Kia Telluride Pricing and Availability:
Telluride pricing begins with the LX (starting at $32,735, including destination) and progresses to the SX (starting at $42,535). The Telluride is in dealerships now.
