Clearly the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride is all about going big, from its bold proportions to features that challenge what its midsize SUV segment offered till now, in addition to being the biggest SUV ever sold from Kia. Old school styling mixed with hints of being a mild off-roader were added bonuses and a big deal to the traditional SUV crowd that have been feeling left out lately. 21 cu.ft of class-leading cargo space behind the 3rd row is another area the Telluride is big on.
Once the power lift gate (or optional Smart Power Liftgate) opens, if that 21 cubic feet of cargo space isn't enough, folding down the 3rd row doubles that volume. Owners wanting wanting even more can reveal all 87 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the 1st-row seats easily via one-touch folding 2nd-row seats. As you can guess by now, overall passenger and cargo interior volume rivals full size SUV's with its impressive 178.1 cubic feet.
As a suitable road trip vehicle the Telluride also offers 5,000 lbs towing capacity just in case you need to haul a small to medium sized trailers to meet even higher cargo carrying demands. Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) offers increased safety by reducing trailers ability to sway or oscillate under conditions that make it most vulnerable.
Other cargo systems beyond the Tellurides cabin include a range of roof cargo options, specific roof attachments for your recreational activity of choice and some tow hitch options. Back inside, we higher demand options to choose from like a cargo net, cargo organizer and cargo tray.
Expect more interior and exterior cargo options in the coming months as aftermarket companies like Thule, SportRack and Yakima get their hands on the Telluride like they have with past and existing Kia utility vehicles.
