As we’re getting closer to the Telluride’s North American market debut, Kia thought this would be a perfect time to release full pricing and specs for its new SUV.
All 2020 Kia Tellurides are powered exclusively by a standard 3.8-liter V6 engine, good for 291 HP and 262 lb-ft (355 Nm) of torque.
The entry-level spec is the LX, priced from $31,690 MSRP. In return for your money, you get 18″ alloy wheels, LED positioning lamps, Park Distance Warning-Reverse, 8-passenger seating with 2nd row bench, leather-wrapped steering wheel, synthetic leather seating, one-touch 3rd row entry and exit, plus 6 total USB ports.
What’s most impressive though are all the standard safety systems installed onboard the Telluride. There’s Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with Lane Keeping Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist with Rear-Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist, Smart Key with Push-Button Start, Rear Occupant Alert and 2nd Row Safe Exit Assist.
Next up in the range is the S spec, which is priced from $33,990 MSRP. On top of everything you get with the LX, this adds 20″ alloy machined finish wheels, roof rails, premium grille and exterior trim, front power sunroof, 10-way power driver seat, heated front seats, 7-passenger seating with 2nd row captain chairs and upgraded interior trims.
Then there’s the EX, from $37,090 MSPR, which in turn builds on the S spec while adding 18″ alloy machined finish wheels, leather seat trim, sat-nav with a 10.25-inch display, 8-way power passenger seat, 1st row ventilated seats, 8-passenger seating with 2nd row bench, Highway Driving Assist, 2nd row side window sunshades and Smart Power Liftgate.
As for the flagship version, that would be the SX, priced upwards of $41,490 MSRP. With this spec you gain 20″ black sport wheels, LED projector beam headlights and LED fog lights, dual sunroofs, 7-passenger seating with 2nd row captain chairs, Harman/Kardon premium sound system, interior mood lighting, surround view monitor and 7″ Supervision Meter Cluster with Blind-Spot View Monitor.
