Introducing The New 2020 Kia Telluride SUV

Introduction

Kia’s all-new 2020 Telluride (expected Spring 2019 with limited
availability) delivers a compelling combination of segment-first
features, premium style, generous standard equipment, practical
utility, and Kia’s high value quotient.
The 2020 Telluride offers true versatility via 8-passenger seating with
one-touch third-row entry and exit (standard LX and EX; 7-passenger
seating standard S and SX), all-wheel drive (available LX, S, EX, and
SX), and a 5,000-lb. towing* capacity complemented by the available
Towing* Package with a class-unique Self-Leveling Rear Suspension
and Towing* Hitch (available EX and SX). Telluride also provides a
helping hand with a Smart Power LiftgateTM* and wireless phone
charger* on EX and SX trim levels.

In today’s technology-driven world, driver assistance technologies
are at the forefront of the 2020 Telluride. All 2020 Tellurides include
two exciting new driver convenience features as standard equipment:
segment-first Safe Exit Assist* and Rear Occupant Alert* (ROA) with
segment-first ultrasonic sensors. Safe Exit Assist* can alert the driver
or passengers opening their door to exit the vehicle if the system
detects another vehicle, bicycle, or pedestrian approaching. Rear
Occupant Alert* (ROA) uses its segment-first ultrasonic sensors to
detect the presence of passengers in the second and third rows and
reminds the driver before leaving the vehicle to prevent leaving any
passengers behind (e.g., children or pets). ROA can also alert the driver
via the UVO link app* if the sensors detect an occupant in the vehicle.

The following Advanced Driver Assistance Systems* (ADAS) features
are standard equipment on all Telluride trim levels: Smart Cruise
Control with Stop and Go* (SCC w/ S&G), Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance
Assist – Rear* (BCA-R), Lane Following Assist* (LFA), Forward Collision-
Avoidance Assist-Pedestrian* (FCA-Ped), Forward Collision Warning*
(FCW), Parking Distance Warning – Reverse* (PDW-R), Rear Cross-
Traffic Collision Avoidance-Assist* (RCCA), and Rear View Monitor with
Parking Guidance* (RVM w/ PG).
Other available ADAS* technologies include Blind Spot View Monitor*
(BVM) (standard SX), Parking Distance Warning – Forward* (PDW-F)
(standard SX), Surround View Monitor* (standard SX), High Beam
Assist* (HBA) (standard SX), and segment-first Highway Driving Assist*
(HDA) (standard EX and SX).

Chicago Auto Show Video




Kia took the opportunity to show off the brand new 2020 Telluride this year at the Chicago Auto Show. Here at Premier Kia, we’ve been eager for a second look at this one since we caught a glimpse of its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January. The three-row Telluride is a completely new model for us this year, and upon release, it will become our largest car to date. It slots in above the Sorrento in Kia’s SUV lineup, and shares a platform with the upcoming Hyundai Palisade.

The American-designed Telluride is sure to make a splash in the market as freshly-built
examples roll off the production line at Kia’s manufacturing facility in West Point, Georgia. We
can’t wait to get them in the showroom in Branford. Brimming with luxury, technology, and
capability, the 2020 Kia Telluride hits dealership floors this spring.


Features

Bold design language like the Telluride’s broad hood and wide grille give it a presence unlike anything we’ve seen in our showrooms. Stacked headlamps and distinctive LED taillamps distinguish the design even further. Prominent nameplates on the hood and liftgate of the vehicle celebrate the choice of name for the Telluride, almost mocking the Euro-esque alphanumeric naming schemes of cars like Cadillac’s CT6. While its design is not to be ignored, the Telluride’s strengths stretch far beyond aesthetics alone. Kia’s largest model features a 291-hp 3.8-liter V6, available all-wheel drive with multiple drive modes for tough New England winters, and up to 5000 pounds of towing capacity. It will also seat up to eight passengers, and do so very comfortably.

This being Kia’s new flagship SUV, it’s promised to be packed with luxury, whether your idea of luxury is a premium leather bag or the newest smartphone bursting with tech. Seating options include double-stitched quilted Nappa leather upholstery, and on the tech side the list is nearly never-ending. Not only is the Telluride available with modern amenities like a 10.25-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and wireless charging, it also benefits from an impressive collection of Kia Drive Wise driver-assist active safety features. Among the long list of included features are smart cruise control, forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, and lane keeping assist.
