2020 Kia Telluride, Triple Crown Winner, in Smyrna, GA

December 20th, 2019 by


Everyone has finally figured out what we at Ed Voyles Kia of Smyrna, Georgia, have known for so long, that the Kia Telluride is the most capable SUV in terms of quality, style, and price on the American highway today.

That’s right!

Better than Ford.

Better than Chevrolet.

Better than Lexus and Acura.

Better than Nissan and Volkswagen.

Yes, even better than Lincoln, Porsche, and Mercedes-Benz.

The Kia Telluride is not only the best SUV on the road today, but it is the pinnacle of value for the money. Saying that you get great value for your money is one of the many reasons that catapulted the Telluride to the top of the class in the minds of writers and reviewers throughout the automotive industry.

The 2020 Kia Telluride Captures Accolades from MotorTrend, Car & Driver, and NACTOY

Winning seven first-place votes out of a possible eleven, the Kia Telluride impressed Motortrend, Car & Driver, and NACTOY reviewers and judges with its overall styling inside and out, its nimble handling, and that it punches so far above its weight class for not a lot of money.

Designed as a 3-row family SUV that’s perfect for the whole family, the 2020 Telluride captured the hearts and accolades of various notable car reviewers and publications. The Kia Telluride won the triple crown of automotive awards, being named Motortrend’s SUV of the Year, Car and Driver’s 10 Best, and NACTOY’s the 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.

The 2020 Telluride has a Powerful and Efficient SUV Drivetrain

It comes with a more than adequate engine, a 3.8L V6 engine that produces 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Telluride’s standard configuration is front-wheel drive (FWD), but you can upgrade to an all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration. The upgrade will cost an extra $2,000, but that amount is far lower than the price many other manufacturers offer.

As far as fuel efficiency goes, in FWD the Telluride gets 20 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city and 26 MPG on the highway, for a combined rating of 23 MPG. If you opt for the AWD model, your fuel economy ratings are 19 MPG city, 24 MPG highway, and 21 combined MPG.

With the 2020 Kia Telluride You Get Lots of Standard Features Other Manufacturers Charge Extra For

For the Kia Telluride’s low starting price of $31,690, you get a boatload of standard features. And as you move up in trim levels, you still get optional features that cost far less than other family SUVs.

With the 2020 Telluride, you can get just about every optional feature offered by other SUVs.You just won’t pay as much.

And that’s what impressed the judges the most, the value that’s packed into the Kia Telluride SUV. MotorTrend’s feature editor, Christian Seabaugh said it best, “Kia shames many luxury automakers offering vehicles costing twice as much. Fit and finish are superb, materials are excellent, and the color mixture is wonderful.”

What the 2020 Kia Telluride Offers Most is Value

The story of the 2020 Kia Telluride is that it offers everything more established SUV brands do for a much better price with outstanding execution at all levels.
