Where can I buy the 2020 KIA Telluride?

Gene Messer KIA is the place to start and finish your new KIA car search. We carry an excellent selection of KIA models and will soon have the new 2020 KIA Telluride. Deep in the heart of Red Raider land we’re the number 1 choice for KIA in Lubbock and the surrounding area.

So without the team in KC (featuring OUR MVP QB) the ‘big game’ ended up a big dud. Fortunately there was some solace offered by Kia and their introduction of the new 2020 KIA Telluride. The new SUV from KIA was announced to the world but also reminded the country that even small towns can produce greatness. Those of us in Lubbock already know that truth: see OUR 2019 NFL MVP. If you missed the commercial, you can watch it below:

2019 KIA Telluride:

The commercial mentions making incredible things and it fits KIA perfectly. Without much fanfare KIA has updated and introduced several new models that elevate the brand into something more than inexpensive transportation. The KIA Telluride takes its place beside the K900, Cadenza, and the Stinger GT as the new breed of KIA cars that are cool.


KIA has announced that the KIA Telluride will feature just one engine, the strong and reliable 3.8L Lambda V-6. The venerable 6-cylinder has been the main powerplant for the (company sibling) Hyundai Genesis for many years with great reviews. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression and this engine hasn’t disappointed. KIA Telluride’s MPG hasn’t been released yet but based on performance of the engine in other platforms it is expected to rival its competitors in the SUV segment.

Exterior: While it certainly has a look of its own, the 2020 KIA Telluride seems to have taken the best parts of the KIA lineup and meshed it into one tough and attractive package. From behind, if you didn’t see the KIA badge the KIA Telluride could easily be mistaken for that imported luxury SUV that always seems to have fancy mustard on hand. The KIA Telluride is going to turn heads wherever you take it.

Interiors: Understated and spacious, the 2020 KIA Telluride’s interior will swallow you in technology and luxury. From the 10.25 inch UVO link Touch-Screen Display to the 12-Way Power-Adjustable Driver’s Seat, you will be ready to venture forth securely and comfortably. The coolest new feature is the Driver Talk option, this feature amplifies the driver’s voice back to the 2nd and 3rd row seating. Sorry kids, your defense of ‘I couldn’t hear you’ is no longer valid. Some of the other interior highlights are:

The Surround View Monitor offers a near all-around view of the KIA Telluride for maximum convenience when parking.
