Kia brought a bunch of auto journalists to the Gateway Canyon resort in Colorado (lots of youtube videos added in past few days), and from there they drove the Tellurides to (the town of) Telluride (about 100 miles southwest). Fun fact: North of the resort is a rock formation called "The Palisade" and there's also a town to the northeast (east of Grand Junction on I70) called Palisade. So I presume this area was an inspiration for both the Kia and Hyundai vehicles.

So... I usually follow autoweek, their info is decent, no Car and Driver or Road & Track, but there's value to be found.
Can't wait to get some seat time after reading this off-road bit from them:

On the drive back we took a couple-mile detour on a dirt road. The Telluride has eight inches of ground clearance and, in our SX model, it also had all-wheel drive, so you could feel fairly confident going around in the dirt and extending your adventuring beyond what you might try in a sedan, for instance. The dirt road was freshly graded, wide and flat, so, naturally, I switched off traction control and tried a few Scandanavian flicks. While the back end did slide around maybe three inches when really pushed, it was hard to make such a sedate crossover flail.
