2020 Kia Telluride Canadian Price And Release Date Announced

Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November, The all-new 2020 Kia Telluride full-size SUV is set to hit the market this spring.


Today, we got an overview of the 2020 Kia Telluride price and versions. Kia also confirmed the new Telluride’s release date which is in just a few weeks. Here’s how pricing breaks down for all three versions of the new Kia SUV.

The entry-level 2020 Telluride EX AWD will start at $44,995 with the Telluride SX AWD version priced at $49,995. The top-of-the-line Kia Telluride SX Limited AWD 2020 will start at $53,995.

Kia didn’t elaborate which features would be found in each version of the new 2020 Telluride, but we’re fairly confident the new Kia full-size SUV won’t be missing much.

5 Questions About The New 2020 Kia Telluride Answered

Most spacious Kia ever built, the Telluride is designed to sit 8 passengers over three rows of seats with “all the comfort and technology active Canadian families want” according to Kia. The Korean automaker also says we should expect the latest safety features.

Power will come from a 3.8-liter V6 that delivers 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. All-wheel drive is standard and features different drive modes including Snow and AWD Lock.

Although we have yet to get behind the wheel of the Kia Telluride here in Canada, US outlets have just returned from their first drive with Kia’s largest SUV and had nothing but good things to say about its comfort, unexpectedly sporty driving dynamics, and overall feeling of solidity and stability.

We certainly can’t wait to get behind the wheel and test it for ourselves.


Think of the 2020 Kia Telluride as the Cadenza of Kia SUVs

The new Kia Telluride may start at over $40,000, we think it will more than make up for it in value. Kia has always been about providing more for less in its top-of-the-line models, and the Kia Cadenza and K900 sedans are perfect examples. Perhaps more expensive than what you expect a mainstream brand like Kia to be, both packed more than enough features to justify the price.

We expect the Telluride to feel the same way. It looks like a premium SUV and should drive like one as well. It will more than likely have everything feature-wise that much more expensive German luxury sport utility vehicles have, but for $15,000 or $20,000 less. On the other hand, Kia’s brand image hurt Cadenza and K900 sales which never really took off. When people pay $50k or $60k, they like others to know what they are driving.

Will the 2020 Kia Telluride have the same problem? We’ll find out very soon.
