Kia lovers that are searching for a powerful SUV will be happy to know that the 2020 Kia Telluride is the strongest and largest Kia SUV to date!

And that’s what we at Route 6 Auto Mall Kia are looking to answer today! The new 2020 Kia Telluride and the 2019 Kia Sorento, the latest Sorento model, are both excellent SUVs from the same great automaker, but they are different in many ways.

The new 2020 Kia Telluride, as you can see from the chart, is quite a bit more expensive than the 2019 Kia Sorento. However, the new Kia SUV does offer several benefits to justify this price tag! It’s larger, offering nearly 24 cubic feet more of passenger space, and offers a substantially stronger base power. The 2019 Kia Sorento has a base horsepower of 185 and a base towing capacity of 2,000 lbs, with the maximum being equal to the new Kia Telluride.

That means that you need to pay more in order to match what you get with the Kia Telluride right at the start, potentially erasing the single advantage that the new 2019 Kia Sorento offers. The new 2020 Kia Telluride also offers nearly 10 more cubic feet of cargo space, with the seats up, than the Kia Sorento’s 11.3 cubic feet.

Between these two great Kia SUVs, there is no right or wrong answer. Both offer great features and systems for you to enjoy, as well as a ton of space and performance. To learn more about either of these vehicles and what features they have available, contact us at Route 6 Auto Mall Kia today!
