2020 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Ford Explorer near Pittsburgh PA

Vehicle Overview

You can’t compare the 2020 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Ford Explorer without taking a hard look at the base models of both vehicles. We’ll focus primarily on the base models for this comparison because we believe that the real value for the majority of customers will be in the least expensive trim of both these excellent larger SUVs. However, you can go beyond the base models and explore both vehicles further and still find that the Telluride is the superior of the two models.

Pittsburgh PA - 2020 Kia Telluride's Overview

Exterior – 2020 Kia Telluride

This year’s full mesh grille on the Telluride is a prelude of wonderful things to come with its design. It has sound-absorbing windshield glass, LED headlights, and 18-20-inch wheels that can be as plain or chromed out as you want them to be. If you want an exterior that’s upscale, you can get it. If you want to build for budget, you can do that, too. What the Telluride gives you is the capability to customize your midsize SUV just as much as you want. The Explorer, by comparison, is much more rigid in what it requires you to have. You get less of the good stuff on inexpensive trims and less choice of better stuff on more expensive trims. We’d call the Telluride’s exterior perks “just right” for the average mid-size SUV buyer. That’s why it wins this category in our 2020 Kia Sportage vs 2020 Ford Escape review at Drive Taylor.

Interior – 2020 Kia Telluride near Pittsburgh PA

The real pride and joy of the 2020 Kia Telluride is the interior. Its seating for 8 people and 21 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the seats up are its biggest advantages over the more cramped 2020 Ford Explorer. For example, your Explorer seats only 7 people and has only 18.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity with everything up. Well, that’s as cramped as cramped can get when you’ve got a family with an active lifestyle who needs to get to school, work, and their extracurricular activities. The midsize 2020 Kia Sportage also has an amazing number of standard features on just its base model interior. For example, you get Sofino synthetic leather seat trim, three row seating, an 8-inch touchscreen display, and even push button start, all on the base model. Your Explorer has some nice upscale features as well, but it simply doesn’t hold up against the Telluride at all. A few of our other favorite Telluride interior features include: Wireless device charging, 10-speaker Harman Kardon Audio, 10.25″ infotainment display, Tri-zone automatic climate control, and Push button start via proximity key.

Mechanical – Telluride specs near Pittsburgh

No matter what class of SUV you’re buying, safety is something you can’t compromise on. Kia never does. The Telluride serves up advanced features like forward collision warning and avoidance with pedestrian detection. The blind spot monitoring system on the Telluride is especially helpful thanks to its sensors. It sees those parts of the road that you simply can’t see! If you want a co-pilot on your midsize SUV, the Telluride from Drive Taylor is much better than the 2020 Ford Explorer. We also love that Kia throws in a lot of standard safety features that they don’t make you pay for at all. They come on the base model and continue throughout the trim lineup. That means a lot to our customers and their families.
