Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Kia Telluride

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - July 10, 2020
  • 2020 Kia Telluride is here; 2021s orderable
  • Rebates: None offered this month
  • Financing: From 0.9% for 48 months
  • Lease: From $309 for 36 months

Kia's opulent SUV:

The 2020 Telluride is Kia's all-new and award-winning three-row crossover SUV. It has a more premium look and vibe compared to past models. Pricing starts at $33,060, or about $5,400 more than the Sorento.

Kia has a handful of deals for buying and leasing, but expect dealer prices to be on the higher side for now. Once inventory builds out, we expect more wiggle room with the prices and incentives. For 2021, the Telluride will add a new Nightfall Edition Package with blackout styling on EX and SX trims.

Kia’s current offers are in place through August 3, 2020. We may see an update as the 2021s arrive, so please check back. Speaking of the 2021s, we've included financing and leasing details below.

No bonus offer again this month:

A year ago, Kia offered loyalty and conquest rebates for one month. The following month, the deals went away and haven't returned. Thus, there are still no cash incentives in place. That's likely to change, but demand is strong, so keep that in mind.

Get 0.9-Percent APR financing:

If you're buying a 2020 or 2021 Telluride, it features 0.9-percent APR financing for up to 48 months.

If you prefer to stretch your payments, the 60-month rate is 1.9 percent, a 66-month loan comes in at 2.9 percent, while a 72-month loan reaches 3.9 percent.

We think it's possible that Kia may introduce 0.0-percent APR financing at some point down the road. In any case, the financing offers are competitive.

Lease from $309 per month:

You can lease a 2020 Telluride LX for as little as $309 per month for 36 months with $3,499 due at signing. This offer comes with an allowance of 12,000 miles per year and equates to an effective cost of $406 per month. We consider this a lackluster value, given the vehicle's MSRP of $33,060.

If you prefer the all-wheel-drive Telluride, the LX is listed for $329 per month for 36 months with the same amount due at signing. Your effective monthly cost is $426 per month.

Leases for the 2021 Telluride are also in place. Simply add $30 per month to each of the above offers to get your cost.

2021 Kia Telluride: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The Kia Telluride arrived as a bold, new three-row crossover for the 2020 model year. Heading into just its second model year, we expect no significant changes to the 2021 Telluride.

The all-new Kia Telluride is a brand-new take on the automaker’s crossover design, as it boasts a bold and almost luxurious look with its upright stance, vertical headlights, large mesh grille, and large wheels. Though this look may be a little too striking for some buyers, it has received glowing reviews from critics and fans of the brand alike, so we expect no notable changes to the 2021 Telluride’s looks.

Inside, the premium feel continues, but the new Telluride takes on a more car-like look with its low instrument panel, spread out buttons, standard 8-inch touchscreen, standard leatherette upholstery, and premium trimming and materials in higher trim levels. Buyers seeking a more premium ride can move into the higher-grade Telluride models and get a 10.3-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, and more. With no changes in the works for the 2021 Telluride, we expect the cabin to carry on unchanged.

2020 Kia Telluride

The current Telluride boasts a 291-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 under its hood paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This setup ships its power to the front wheels as standard or all four wheels with optional all-wheel drive. We expect this to remain the only powertrain option in the 2021 Kia Telluride.

The Telluride is an IIHS 2019 Top Safety Pick thanks to its “Good” ratings in all crash tests, “Acceptable” headlight rating with the LED projectors, and a “Superior” rating in the front-crash prevention with its standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Other standard safety features include adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitors. We expect the safety equipment and ratings to roll into the 2021 Kia Telluride unchanged.

This model will compete with the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, and Hyundai Palisade.
