How the Kia Telluride beats its competition

Class-leading value

The Kia Telluride has no shortage of competition in its class, including the likes of the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, and Chevrolet Traverse. But what no competitor can claim is a better price point.

The 2024 Telluride LX starts at $36,190 MSRP, making it the lowest-priced three-row midsize SUV on the market today.[1] And there’s great value all the way up the line: The top-flite SX Prestige X-Pro has a cheaper starting price than high-end models like the Ford Explorer Platinum and Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy Night.

Standard navigation

There’s a lot to explore here in the Sunshine State, and the 2024 Kia Telluride helps you make the most of your trips with built-in navigation. Every Telluride offers navigation standard, but you need to pay extra for that privilege if you drive an SUV like the Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander.

What’s more, standard-included Smart Cruise w/ Stop & Go leverages navigation to help you maintain a safe speed and following distance more easily. Some SUVs like the Ford Explorer also make you pay extra for comparable adaptive cruise control.

Excellent power

The 2024 Kia Telluride comes standard with a 3.8-liter V6, giving you 291 horsepower right out of the gate — not to mention up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. That makes the Telluride more powerful than options like the Volkswagen Atlas, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Highlander despite its lower starting price. With the Kia Telluride, you just get more bang for the buck when you press the pedal.

Impressive fuel economy

Even with its power, the 2024 Kia Telluride delivers more value at the pump than its competition. Despite out-muscling the Honda Pilot with more horsepower, the Kia Telluride gets better city fuel economy. And on the highway, the Telluride gets better mileage than the Hyundai Palisade. Either way, you’ll be able to spend more time on the move with the Telluride thanks to its larger 18.8-gallon fuel tank.
