How Automobiles Work

Think of the all-new
2020 Kia Telluride as the brawnier-looking
brother of the sleeker Hyundai Palisade. The Telluride offers
three rows of seating for up to eight people,
some nifty family-oriented technology, and plenty of
standard advanced safety features. Under the tall and boxy hood
is the same drivetrain found in the Palisade, a
291-horsepower V6 mated to an eight-speed
automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes
standard, with all-wheel drive available. The Telluride’s cabin continues
the big and burly theme of the exterior with an
expansive dash, a wide center stack, and sturdy grab handles
around the center console. There is an available
10.3-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, and
the center stack has a fairly conventional layout of
knobs and large buttons. Android Auto and Apple
CarPlay come standard, and wireless smartphone
charging is optional. Family-friendly options
include an intercom system, so the driver can communicate
with the second and third rows, and a quiet mode
that lets the driver listen to music without any
sound going to the rear seats. Standard advanced safety
systems include forward collision warning,
automatic emergency braking with
pedestrian detection, and blind spot warning,
just to name a few. We’re looking forward to seeing
how Kia’s big new SUV will fare against the competition
when we buy one of our own later this year and put it
through the full CR test regimen. For more on midsized SUVs,

  1. Kia makes it sound like quite sound is a new thing 😂😂 every freakin car if not most cars on the market can do "quite mode" without selecting it. Also Kia ruined the interior my opinion with the cheap looking plastic and that weird awkward silver aluminum thing in the middle.

  2. This suv looks ugly. The concept was much better.. and he doesn't even look like concept.. I'll stay with Sorento..

  3. it looks like Kia is up to its old tricks again! Remember the Kia Amanti, Kia Rondo, in the Kia Spectre patch from the early 2000s? It's goofy Korean grab bag styling makes it look like the bastard child of a Range Rover mixed with a old Civic hatchback from the late 90s. Wolf

  4. I wonder if, like its smaller gas powered Kia/Hyundai crossover siblings, this will have bottom of the class MPG. If history is a guide and the 8-spd auto is any indication, this will utilize the cheapest (heaviest) steel and thus weigh in at the top of the class. I have a feeling the new Explorer, with a class leading 10-spd auto, more powerful and efficient BASE engine and much better deployment of lower weight, higher strength steel is going to run circles around this porky beast and the Palisade.
