The Kia Telluride has arrived with as much pomp and fanfare as we expected when they announced the concept back over a year ago. Putting Kia firmly back into the full-size, third-row SUV game, the 2020 Kia Telluride does more than just an adequate job of challenging the staid competition – mass-market and luxury alike. From the base model up, drivers who choose the Telluride enjoy several active safety features, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration and up to 5,000 lbs. of maximum towing capability.
To say that the 2020 Kia Telluride has shaken up the segment is to put it lightly. Competitors have taken note, and the full-size SUV segment is more competitive than it’s ever been before. Today, we’re comparing the 2020 Kia Telluride to a model that likely prides itself on value. It’s the 2020 Kia Telluride Vs. the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder. Let’s see how they match up.

Although both Kia and Nissan have always prided themselves on value, the 2020 Kia Telluride offers so much more than the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder for less. With the 2020 Kia Telluride, you get a buttery-smooth, 8-speed automatic transmission that handles the robust 3.8-liter V6 engine.
Adventures should be inclusive and yours will be in the 2020 Kia Telluride that offers eight-passenger seating over the Pathfinder’s seven-passenger seating.
Those passengers will have a much better time in the Telluride as the extra cargo volume ensures that nothing has to stay at home. You’ll also have a better time driving the 2020 Kia Telluride courtesy of standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration.
