The new 2020 Kia Telluride offers a large build and receptive features. There's also three-rows of space for large families. To see how the new Telluride fares against the 2019 Ford Explorer, read on.
Anyone shopping for a new SUV is also shopping for versatility. The new Telluride has space that is equivalent to a minivan but with better exterior features. The new SUV also features a big engine that tows thousands of pounds. With such a robust set of features and an ability to take on versatile terrain, the Telluride is understandably popular.
Kia wanted to re-enter the segment with a bang, and the 2020 Telluride has done precisely that. With relentless performance and characteristics, the 2020 Kia Telluride is as close to a luxury-class SUV as a mass-market model can get. Can owners of the new 2019 Ford Explorer provide the same praises?
With the new 2020 Kia Telluride's significantly smaller engine and high power-to-weight ratio, it is an unstoppable force when compared to the 2019 Ford Explorer.
Both SUVs have their strengths, but only one can win. At one time, the Ford Explorer defined the SUV segment, which makes it a worthy opponent. However, with 8-passenger seating and more cargo volume, that spot is now taken. To see how these two SUVs compare, check out the data we've compiled:
|$31,690||Starting (Estimated) MSRP||$32,365|
|8 Passengers||Standard Seating||7 Passengers|

As we expected, the 2020 Kia Telluride dominates the Ford Explorer in almost every segment mentioned.
Whether you need more passenger space, towing capabilities, or merely a better infotainment experience, the Telluride wins. The new Kia SUV even offers drivers near Near Orleans, Louisiana, more confidence in the form of a bumper-to-bumper warranty. Unfortunately, the Ford Explorer falls short in multiple categories.
