In an early review the Kia Telluride's stopping distance from 60-0 was done in just 118 feet. Better than the Honda Pilot.

Keep in mind that's from just ONE review and its from an automotive publication (MotorTrend) that typically gets vehicles for no more than one week. The only true way to assess performance and know what we're truly dealing with is through a series of tests over time, from owners like ourselves. So that "118 feet" might not hold true. They also don't factor braking in a range of situations that vary depending on weather, road conditions, towing a load, braking while turning (shifting body weight can have an impact), braking on an incline/decline, braking while off-roading, and so on.

If every owner, even owners-to-be that went on test drives, can report their experience and statistics I think it would help all of us get the most from the Telluride. I'm 95% sold on the Telluride like most others so the worst case scenario is we ditch OEM parts like brake pads for higher performing/better material OE replacements. Also tires in some cases (ex. off-roading, driving in winter conditions)

Looking forward to everyone's feedback!

I have been driving since 1961, I have owned, or ridden many types and brands of vehicles, to include an M60A1 main battle tank, which to me rode like a Caddy. My point being that of all the vehicles I
owned or have ridden my 2020 Telluride has the best brakes of them all. Its about time that somebody
finally put good brakes on vehicle.

The wife had a "DEER" experience the other night.

Was impressed with the stopping power. She was certain a trip to the body shop would be in order, but felt the Telluride stopped very well and immediate.
