Which SUV to get, the 2022 Kia Telluride or the 2022 GMC Yukon? If you’ve come to this crossroads, then you’ve narrowed down your options quite a bit already, and you’re getting close to that moment where you get behind the wheel of your very own SUV. If you haven’t already, we always suggest a test drive to help compare two vehicles. First, read below to compare these models in terms of price, warranty, and interior features. We’ve decided to use the 2022 Kia Telluride SX AWD and the 2022 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD trim levels for this comparison. You can find new Kia and used GMC vehicles here at Friendly Kia of New Port Richey, FL.
Our main reason for comparing the two trim levels that we chose is because they come close in pricing. The 2022 Kia Telluride SX AWD is a high-end trim level that has a base MSRP of $44,590. On the other hand, the 2022 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD is a low-end trim level with a base MSRP of $51,600. When we say high-end and low-end, we are talking relative to that model’s other trim levels. Basically, the 2022 Kia Telluride can’t get much more expensive than this trim level, while you will find it difficult to find a brand new 2022 GMC Yukon at a lower price. That being said, the 2022 Kia Telluride is clearly the more affordable option, which can be due to a number of things such as the fact that it has one fewer seat.
Warranty coverage is another area where the 2022 Kia Telluride is a better value. Its basic warranty lasts for 60 months or 60,000 miles. The 2022 GMC Yukon model’s basic warranty lasts for 36 months or 36,000 miles.
Finally, let's look at interior features. As we’ve mentioned elsewhere, the main difference is that this model of the 2022 Kia Telluride has seven seats while the GMC Yukon model has eight. Other differences include standard heated front seats, memory exterior mirrors, and a navigation system on the 2022 Kia Telluride.
