Gene Messer Kia invites you to learn more about the stylish and new 2020 Kia Telluride in Lubbock, TX. Explore all the specs and options of this stylish and new third-row luxury SUV.
If you sat through the last Super Bowl, you know there was not much offense, and little to get excited about unless you’re from ‘Bahston’. As expected, the ads were the highlight of the event and the big winner was the spot introducing the brand-new 2020 Kia Telluride.
So, just what IS the 2020 Telluride and how does it fit in with the Kia lineup? Kia calls the Telluride the ‘future of the luxury SUV’, and while you might scoff given that Kia has been assumed to be more of a starting level automobile manufacturer, you would do well to take notice. Kia has patiently been building an eye-opening inventory of high-end vehicles like the 365 horse power Stinger GT, the lavish Cadenza, and the eye-catching K900. While the Sorento is a wonderful vehicle, it is not a Luxury SUV, hence the production of the Telluride. Called “Best in Show” at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, the Telluride’s addition to the Kia stable means they now have a car for almost everyone.
The 2020 Telluride was recently announced at the Detroit Auto Show so details and information are somewhat limited — such as MPG ratings — but what IS revealed is eye-opening. Kia confirms the Telluride has a 3.8 L Lambda Direct Injection V6, producing 291 horse power. This powertrain puts rivals, like the Honda Pilot and Chevy Traverse, on notice. The 2020 Kia Telluride is coming.
The 2020 Telluride certainly has a high end appearance, as it mixes features from its fellow Kia lineup while also looking entirely original. The features are bold and robust and look like nothing like your vision of what a Kia should appear like. Get rid of the badges and you would never guess that the 2020 Telluride is a Kia. Integrated styling conceals the Forward Collision Avoidance Assist Sensors in the front fascia. It’s not simply attractive ‘for a Kia’, it is honestly a well-crafted and good-looking SUV.
The 2020 Telluride is made to command and conquer any kind of road trip you toss at it. The interior is user-friendly yet stylish with conveniences like a 10.25-inch touchscreen, 2 rows of captain’s chairs, and the capability to combine more than one Bluetooth® device. The 2020 Telluride also has conveniences for owners who intend to utilize the Kia as a family vehicle. The Driver Talk option enhances the voice to get to 2nd and 3rd row travelers. Shouting ‘Don’t make me pull this car over!’ is easier than ever now. Do you have little ones who will only sleep if you drive them around? The Telluride has you covered. The new Quiet Mode makes use of only the front row audio speakers to give those youngsters a quieter ride to fight going to bed.
Kia’s safety suite, called Kia Drive Wise, features some actually awesome automotive tech. The Blind Spot View Monitor not only alerts you to objects in your blind spot, you also receive an online video feed of those locations. In available locations the Highway Driving Assist can alter the vehicle cruising speed to match the vehicle ahead or because you didn’t see the speed limit change. Kia also has Safe Exit Assist, including an alarm, to check the rear seats to avoid forgetting family pets or children.
