As Tellurides flood Kia dealers, its clear that everything you need to know about this all-new full size SUV is available, including configuring your very own model. Starting from $31,690 it has a lot to offer in and here we have broken down the various trims, colors, packages and options available for 2019.

A 3.8-liter V-6 engine come standard, producing 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, mated to an automatic transmission, powering the front wheels. AWD is optional. Above the base LX is the Telluride S ($33,990), Telluride EX ($37,090) and Telluride SX ($41,490). As you move through the 4 trim levels, the options keep getting more desirable with features like bigger 20-inch wheels, 10-way power driver's seat, Heated front seats, Heated steering wheel, Dual sunroofs, Head-up display, Harman/Kardon audio system, Seven-passenger seating with second-row captain's chairs, Adaptive cruise control, a 10.3-inch touchscreen, Power liftgate and many more to list.

Compared to rivals (Honda Pilot, Subaru Ascent and Toyota Highlander) in the segment, the Tellurides value in unprecedented, aside from its exterior and interior design that also's breaking down barriers on its own, especially with 6 attractive exterior colors and 4 leather upholstery colors to choose from. If you're looking for more, an interior lighting kit comes optional at $450, or maybe a set of illuminated scuff plates for $310.

Safety has also been held to a high standard much like the rest of the Telluride with active and passive safety technology in place. Mentioned earlier, features like adaptive cruise control requires a higher spec Telluride but lane keeping assist, forward collision warning assist, blind spot collision avoidance assist with rear collision avoidance assist and adaptive cruise control with stop and go come as standard advanced safety technology.

Overall the 2020 Telluride has a lot to offer, so much that it challenges the entire segment instead of merely competing.

I'm glad that Kia made AWD optional regardless of trim. I hate when automakers restrict it solely to the top spec models. Now you can make your decision based purely on the equipment that you want.

I wish that they give you a choice of bench seats vs capt chairs at the top of the trim later down the line. Not a deal breaker, just a preference.

Does anyone know if a remote start is standard or available at any spec level? I know this was a painful issue with my wife's 2019 Sorento EX. They had to add it at the dealer, which wasnt so bad, but it is a silly little extra fob on the key instead of being built right into the standard unit like pretty much every other car company has done to date. I would really miss this if I traded my Atlas in for the Telluride, but I am still really tempted.

The telluride has remote start through a phone app on EX and SX trims. The dealer either didn't set up your remote start correctly on your Sorento or didn't show you how to start it with your original key fob. If they gave you the op guide for remote start on your Sorento. the instructions how to pair your key fob and how to use it are in there.
