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.
