2020 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Hyundai Palisade
The 2020 Kia Telluride that debuted at the 2019 Detroit auto show is a close relative to the Hyundai Palisade unveiled last fall. The Telluride fills a gap in Kia’s lineup. Not since the short-lived Borrego has Kia had a crossover SUV bigger than its Sorento.
Like the Palisade, the Telluride uses a 3.8-liter V-6 rated at 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque to send power to either the front or all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Kia hasn’t released fuel economy or curb weight figures for the Telluride, but its horsepower rating is on par with most rivals.
Kia hasn’t said how much cargo or passenger space the 2020 Telluride has, but the 18 cubic feet of space behind the related Palisade’s third row and 46 cubic feet behind its second row are good indicators. Those figures are strong against the wide range three-row crossover SUVs vying for a driveway spot in suburban America.
