2020 Kia Telluride hits all the high points
Though there is available room for eight, the Telluride competes against other midsize crossovers such as the Toyota Highlander and Volkswagen Atlas.
Under the hood is a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 engine, with 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.
Cargo room is ample, with 21 cubic feet of storage space behind the third row, which expands to 46 cubic feet with the way-back bench folded. That's plenty for all our video gear.
An eight-speed automatic transmission handles shifting duties, and while front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive can be added to any model for an extra $2,000.
The Telluride comes with a huge list of standard driver's aids, including blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane-departure mitigation, rear cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality.
A new bit of driver assistance tech comes in the form of Kia's Highway Driving Assistant, which is a partially automated, hands-on-the-wheel system.
A lock mode on all-wheel drive models splits the torque 50/50 from front to rear for better traction.
The optional 10.2-inch infotainment runs Kia's UVO system as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2020 Kia Telluride starts at $31,690, topping out at $43,490 for the top SX trim.
