2020 KIA TELLURIDE QUICK TAKES

The all-new 2020 Kia Telluride made its official on-road and off-road debut, beginning a new adventure for Kia with its biggest and boldest SUV ever. Not far from the town that bears its name, the midsize Telluride SUV tackled mountain passes, rugged off-road trails and nearly every other kind of road under Colorado’s wide western sky. Imagined in America, designed at Kia’s design studio in California, and assembled in Georgia, the Telluride is the largest Kia ever. It provides comfortable seating for up to eight, a powerful 291-hp 3.8-liter V6, available active on-demand all-wheel drive, and an inspiring view of the world. The Telluride offers potential for exploration and adventure every time it’s on the road.
