The primary benefit of having an SUV with enough room for family members and more stuff is that it goes beyond simply being a transportation utility. Family SUVs and those with plenty of cargo room are memory making machines that allow you, and the people most dear to you, to travel places other vehicles can't in comfort and with everything needed for the adventure along for the ride. These vehicles are points of little compromise – delivering the cargo hauling abilities of a truck, the people moving abilities of a minivan and the off-road friendly capability of a small body-on-frame SUV.

The 2020 Kia Telluride has lit up the automotive world by giving drivers capability, comfort, cargo room and an uncommon addition – style. Featuring a luxurious exterior design and refined interior, the 2020 Kia Telluride is at home against luxury SUVs and mass-market models alike. Today, we're comparing the 2020 Kia Telluride to a base-luxury SUV – the GMC Acadia:
