Jalopnik has posted up their initial review/impression of the Telluride noting its strengths and weaknesses. They were quite pleased with the safety features and huge amount of cargo space, but did not like the cars infotainment system. There are physical buttons to help navigate the menus however. https://jalopnik.com/the-2020-kia-telluride-is-really-big-and-really-good-1833480484

Kia's motto is "Give It Everything," which they certainly have with the Telluride, both a blessing and a curse. The center console is a complicated mess-one Kia person approvingly compared it to the cockpit of a jet, which, nah-but that same approach serves it well in other aspects of the car, like with all of the safety features that come standard, the numerous charging ports and power outlets, and its massive cargo space with the third-row seat folded down.
The Telluride was designed in Irvine, California, and is built in Georgia, meaning there's nothing really Korean about it at all. It is huge and willing to entertain even the most outlandish of ideas, and thus feels ideally poised to succeed in America perhaps more than any other Kia before it.

While criticisms of an inaccurate touch screen are fair, you'll find similar issues with any infotainment system in this class. Out of all brands, I've always found Kia's tech to be the most user friendly and intuitive to live with.

I agree, their infotainment system is the easiest to use out of all the ones I've seen/used. If you can't use this one, you aren't going to be able to use most of them.

The Kia system is pretty good in my wife's Sorento, though not great. The system in my 2018 Atlas is decent for the audio, but to navigate the vehicle settings is a chore. I have had a few Dodge and Jeep vehicles in the past and the UConnect 8.4 system is by far the best in the industry for user experience.
