2020 Kia Telluride Offers Space, Style, and AffordabilityFebruary 5th, 2019
The only two car commercials I recall from the Super Bowl over the weekend were for the Toyota Supra, a car I’m not particularly attracted to, and the Kia Telluride. It took most of the Telluride commercial to figure out it was for a Kia, but the full-size SUV looks fantastic.
I left wondering if it would be a very expensive car for Kia to try and push into the premium segment. It turns out the 2020 Telluride will be surprisingly affordable. Car and Driver says that a base LX model Telluride will set you back $32,735. That includes 18-inch wheels, 8-passenger seating, CarPlay, and Android Auto support, adaptive cruise, and blind-spot monitoring. Every Telluride packs a 291 horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 engine, starting with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is optional.
Up a rung is the Telluride S at $35,035 upgrading to 20-inch wheels, 7-passenger seating with second-row captains chairs, 10-way power driver’s seat, and heated front seats; a power sunroof is included. The Telluride EX starts at $38,135 and brings leather, power passenger seat, and more. The top-of-the-line SX is $42,535 adding all sorts of options like LED headlights and more. A $4,000 SX Prestige package adds all-wheel drive, Nappa leather, HUD, and more. With such good looks, features, and space, Kia is sure to sell a massive number of Tellurides at these prices.
