A Look Under the Hood

The Kia Telluride three-row SUV enjoys great popularity with both professional critics and actual vehicle occupants. The Telluride enjoys this level of popularity because it works hard to bring occupants and drivers the very best. This devotion to excellence extends to the Kia Telluride engine features.

Fontana drivers can now choose one of four preset drive modes by simply pushing a button in their cabins. These drive modes include Comfort, Eco, Smart, and Sport. When drivers engage one of these specialized modes, the Kia Telluride responds by changing relevant vehicle parameters to promote the intended driving experience.

The engine that lies under the hood of the New Kia Telluride offers Riverside, CA drivers the convenience of 291 horsepower. This horsepower rating also works hand-in-hand with 262 pound-feet of torque to help drivers to tackle most road-based problems.

While the Kia Telluride SUV may be a powerhouse in the engine department, it also takes great care to provide reasonable gas mileage numbers. As such, drivers can expect an EPA-estimated 26 MPG when operating on city and highway roads. Plus, the 18.8-gallon fuel tank ensures that Telluride passengers can go far between refills in Moreno Valley.

The New Kia Telluride Pulls its Weight

There's no doubt that the Kia Telluride SUV posts respectable numbers in the power and fuel-efficiency areas. In addition, the Telluride also provides operators with up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. As such, Telluride drivers can count on towing a variety of items such as small vehicles, medium-sized boats, trailers, and more.

A special feature that works well with the towing system is the Kia Electronic Parking Brake Auto Hold service. The Auto Hold electronic parking brake can keep the vehicle from moving when it's at rest on a hill or flat surface. This system makes it much easier for Montclair drivers to safely control heavily laden trailers.

Extra Elbow Room in the New Kia Telluride

While some three-row SUVs tend to pack passengers together, the new Telluride has room to carry up to eight passengers in comfort. That's not all, because this roomy SUV also includes significant amounts of space for passenger cargo.

Kia Telluride passengers can benefit from a cargo system that allows occupants to fold down the second and third rows. In this configuration, passengers can count on up to 87 cubic feet of cargo space. With the third row folded down flat, occupants can still make good use of 46 cubic feet of cargo space.

Safety and Interior Technology

The new Kia Telluride is a large vehicle, and as such it goes to great lengths to help drivers to stay aware of what is going on around them. One technology that helps drivers achieve this goal is the Blind Spot Detection technology. The system uses cameras and other sensors to eliminate blind spots behind and to the sides of vehicles.

Working side-by-side with the Blind Spot Detection system is the Lane Keeping and Following service. This uses radar and other sensors to chart the position of other vehicles, after which the system can maintain flow-of-traffic speeds as well as a safe distance from other cars.

Without a Doubt, the Kia Telluride Holds Up Against Its Stiffest Competition

The results are in. After just a year of production, the Kia Telluride is a hit. Not only are drivers in Corona and San Bernardino thrilled about the value of a three-row SUV that starts at just under $32,000, but it's what you get for your money that makes the Telluride such a smash.

It all starts with what's under the hood - a 3.8-liter V6 engine that churns out 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque through an intelligent all-wheel drive system that help you conquer whatever terrain lies ahead. You can even tow up to 5,000 pounds with your new three-row SUV, which not only beats or competes with it's main rivals but allows you the freedom to bring your favorite toys along for the ride. Whether for you that's a boat, a small camper, or a pair of ATVs, you're free to hitch up and chase that next adventure with confidence.

While Toyota gets the nod as the benchmark, it's important to note that the Kia Telluride checks all of the same boxes at a lower cost than the competing Toyota model. You'll find your forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot monitoring are all up to par, and in fact the Telluride has an additional touch that marks it above the Japanese brands. With a visual blind spot monitor, you can actually see a camera view of those areas pop up on the dash, giving you a crystal clear understanding of what is happening around you.

Finally, the fine details of the Kia Telluride give you a high-quality look and feel that you might not expect. The wood grain detail of the dash, the available panoramic sunroof, and even the second-row seats are more than comfortable for an average-sized adult. In short, if you're looking for a three-row SUV in the Moreno Valley, then you have no reason not to check out the new Kia Telluride at our Riverside dealership.

Kia Telluride's Award Cabinet Proves its Excellence

Despite launching just last year, the Kia Telluride has already positioned itself as a leader in the three-row SUV segment. Praised by consumers and acclaimed by critics, Telluride excels in all areas, boasting premium accommodations, bold style, and roomy versatility. And with its wealth of features and accessible retail price, Kia's largest vehicle represents one of the market's most outstanding values. As an exceptionally well-rounded and well-equipped SUV, it's no surprise Telluride attracts attention. But an overflowing stockpile of awards demonstrates just how good it is. Here's a quick overview of some of the highlights.

Telluride Wins "Triple Crown" of Prestigious Industry Awards

In just one year of production, Telluride managed to garner three of the most esteemed automotive awards, including:

  • 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year: The Kia Telluride kicked off 2020 on a high note when the North American Car of the Year (NACTOY) jury named it the top utility vehicle of the year. Before announcing the winner, NACTOY jurors spent months deliberating, evaluating, test driving, and comparing. Twelve semifinalists were narrowed down to three finalists before Telluride was given the top ranking. NACTOY's secretary-treasurer, Kirk Bell, commented, "The Kia Telluride makes owning an SUV look cool while offering the smooth ride and rich interior of a luxury vehicle without the luxury price."

  • Motor Trend SUV of the Year: The well-regard MotorTrend publication named Telluride as its number-one SUV. Editors lauded the utility vehicle's outstanding engineering, advanced design, safety features, efficiency, and overall value. Features editor, Scott Evans, noted, "It just does everything right. It's quiet, comfortable, smooth, stylish, and affordable. What more could you ask for?"

  • Car and Driver 10Best: Car and Driver's 10Best is one of the industry's most important lists, going back more than 35 years. C&D complimented Telluride's excellent design, upscale interior, advanced tech, and fantastic value. Deputy Editor, Tony Quiroga, stated "There's consistent excellence in the design and packaging throughout, from the legroom of the second row to the way the seats fold and even down to the quality of the carpet."

Award-Winning Capability and Luxury

While Corona and Fontana drivers don't really have to worry about harsh winters, Telluride's ability to conquer the extreme New England climate can tell us a lot about its all-weather, all-surface capability. The New England Motor Press Association designated Telluride as its Winter SUV of the Year for its "dynamic qualities that make for safe, enjoyable, and competent all-weather driving." Sean Yoon, President & CEO, Kia Motors America, responded to the accolade stating, "It's high praise when New England auto journalists judge a vehicle worthy of the title Best Winter SUV. Their region's weather is famously rigorous, and we're thrilled Telluride is more than up for the task.

Additionally, Telluride earned recognition for its upscale cabin from WardsAuto. The long-running automotive news and insights publication named Telluride to its list of Wards 10 Best Interiors for 2020. Wards commended the SUV's "achievement in aesthetics, comfort, ergonomics, material use, fit-and-finish, and user-friendly technology."
