Kia’s new 2020 Telluride is the automaker’s biggest SUV, and not surprisingly, it has some of the lineup’s smallest numbers when it comes to fuel economy — though it is rated a couple of mpg better than some competitors. The new three-row SUV is EPA rated at 20/26/23 city/highway/combined mpg with front-wheel drive.
The Telluride’s sole engine is a 291-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It’s offered with front- or all-wheel drive and in LX, EX, S and SX trim levels. With AWD, it’s EPA-rated at 19/24/21 mpg.
That’s competitive with several other three-row SUVS. In base AWD trim, the Honda Pilot is rated at 18/26/21 mpg, and an AWD V-6 version of the Chevrolet Traverse is rated at 17/25/20 mpg. See how those models compare here.
The 2020 Kia Telluride goes on sale later this year. It’ll start at $32,735 for a base LX, front-wheel-drive model, and $34,735 with all-wheel drive; all prices include destination. We look forward to bringing you our driving impressions of the Telluride once we get in one.
