Looking for a vehicle that can take you and up to seven other individuals into the incredible places that roads don’t go with plenty of gear in tow, a comfortable ride and good fuel economy? Who isn’t? That sounds like an amazing vehicle. For decades, the full-size crossover class has existed to capture such a vehicle in the wild. By giving drivers a large unibody platform, available all-wheel drive, robust powertrains and plenty of interior amenities, full-size crossovers are the ticket to adventures with everybody along for the journey.
Debuting this year, the 2020 Kia Telluride is a brand-new model from value leaders, Kia, that promises new experiences for those who know that the real adventures begin where the pavement ends. Luxurious style, a host of standard technology features and comfortable three-row seating make the Telluride a model that may already be top of its class before it arrives. Up against the Telluride is the 2019 Honda Pilot. Let’s see how they fare:
2020 Kia Telluride
2019 Honda Pilot
|3.8L V6 (291 horsepower)||Standard engine (horsepower)||3.5L V6 (280 horsepower)|
|8-speed automatic||Standard transmission||6-speed automatic|
|5,000 lbs.||Towing capacity||3,500 lbs.|
|44.1 inches/42.4 inches||Legroom (first row/second row)||40.9 inches/38.4 inches|
|Standard||Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration||Available|
|5 years/60,000 miles||Bumper-to-bumper warranty||3 years/36,000 miles|
|10 years/100,000 miles||Engine warranty||5 years/60,000 miles|
As you can see in the chart above, the 2020 Kia Telluride is more than just a competent class entry. It’s already a class-leader. With more horsepower, better towing-capacity, more legroom and better standard features, the Telluride is an aspirational model that will undoubtedly be imitated by class competitors.
On top of that, it also includes the confidence of Kia’s incredible warranties. When you buy a 2020 Kia Telluride, your engine is covered for 10 years (or 100,000 miles) and practically everything else is covered for 5 years (or 60,000 miles). Honda? They give you about half of that.
Finally, with the 2020 Kia Telluride, you’re getting a vehicle that is sold by Friendly Kia – value, inventory and satisfaction leaders in Tampa Bay.
