|Brand New For Sale|
Every 2020 Telluride leaves the automaker’s Georgia assembly plant with a 291-hp, 262-pound-feet of torque 3.8-liter V-6 underhood. An 8-speed automatic transmission shuttles power to the front wheels or, for $2,000 more, all four. The engine is tasked with lugging as much as 4,500 pounds worth of crossover SUV, and that’s before fuel, luggage, passengers, and pets are loaded up for a road trip. A hearty stab at the throttle induces prompt downshifts, but the V-6 makes most of its power toward redline. Sound deadening muffles the engine well enough, but passing power is in short supply.The Telluride’s suspension is soft, even with the 20-inch wheels fitted to S and SX trims.
That soft ride doesn’t come at the detriment of handling. Steering heft is firm even in comfort mode, and it tightens up for good on-center stability at speed in sport mode. Most drivers will probably leave the control knob in the default smart mode, which works in the background to tailor the vehicle’s throttle, transmission, and steering heft to the driver’s personality. Every 2020 Telluride comes with adaptive cruise control with stop and go, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors. A system Kia calls Highway Driving Assist reads road markings and can automatically change lanes when necessary.
