This week’s top news stories involved the new Kia Telluride, Tesla, and the Ford Explorer.
As American outlets published their 2020 Kia Telluride first reviews, we got information on the new Telluride’s Canadian price. The Tesla referral program was brought back to life, just a month after it was cancelled. Lastly, the Ford Explorer is apparently making its owners sick.
2020 Kia Telluride To Start at $44,995
The Kia Telluride was officially unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show and now we know how much it will cost. The top-of-the-line Kia SUV will start at $44,995 in Canada. Three versions will be offered:
- Kia Telluride EX AWD: $44,995
- Kia Telluride SX AWD: $49,995
- Kia Telluride SX Limited AWD: $53,995
Kia didn’t provide any more info on the new Telluride’s features list. For now, all we know for sure is that all-wheel drive will be standard and a 3.8-liter V6 featuring 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque will power the new high-end Kia full-size SUV.

Tesla Referral Program is Back and it Could Win You a Tesla Roadster
Tesla brought back its referral program less than 2 months after killing it off. The awards have changed, however. It used to be that referring a lot of buyers to Tesla would get your picture launched into space, months of free supercharging, and a drive in the Tesla Semi.
The new awards program isn’t as extensive, but it can still get you a new Tesla, specifically a Model Y. You could also win a Tesla Roadster.

The Ford Explorer is Making its Owners Sick
An investigation into possible carbon monoxide poisoning among Ford Explorer owners was opened last week after reports surfaced of drivers and passengers feeling nauseous.
Over 3,000 complaints were reported concerning Ford Explorer models from 2010 to 2018. The NHTSA has apparently been investigating the situation since 2016.
