2020 Kia Telluride for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Kia’s all-new SUV, the Telluride, offers three rows of seating, a great package of active safety equipment, and exceptional warranty coverage. As the Korean automaker’s largest vehicle yet, it comfortably seats up to eight passengers and provides 87 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. Its power source is a robust 3.8-liter V6 that makes 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Although the Telluride comes standard with front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive is available (and recommended – especially in New England).
Comfort and Convenience
There are four trim levels to choose from: the LX, S, EX, and SX. Standard equipment on the base LX includes 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors, selectable drive modes, leather-like upholstery, and 60/40-split folding second- and third-row seating. The S trim comes with 20-inch wheels, roof rails, a sunroof, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, and second-row captain’s chairs that offer extra comfort for those passengers but reduce the maximum capacity to seven (if you’d rather have a bench seat, it can be swapped in as an option). The EX provides LED taillights, power-folding mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, keyless entry and ignition, tri-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating surfaces, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, ventilated front seats, and the second-row bench seat. The range-topping SX is loaded with the likes of LED headlights and fog lights, dual sunroofs, front parking sensors, ambient interior lighting, memory functions for the driver’s seat, second-row captain’s chairs, and a surround-view parking camera.
Safety & Technology
All of the Telluride trims come with a generous slate of active safety features. This includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and a drowsy driver alert system. Those who choose the SX trim will be indulged with a blind-spot camera system, automatic high beams, and a highway driving assist system.
Both the LX and S grades are outfitted with an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six USB ports (one for media and the others for charging), and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio. The EX gets an extra USB port, a 10.3-inch touchscreen, a Driver Talk voice amplifier for the rear seats, a Quiet Mode to silence the rear speakers, and a wireless charging pad. At the top of the heap with the SX, a premium 10-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system upgrades the base setup.
To enhance your Telluride, a self-leveling rear suspension and a tow hitch are both available for the EX and SX trims. With the tow hitch, you’ll be able to haul up to 5,000 pounds. Kia offers the Prestige Package for the all-wheel drive SX to provide premium leather upholstery, a head-up display, heated and ventilated second-row seats, automatic wipers, and a heated steering wheel.
