2020 Ford Explorer vs 2020 Kia Telluride

Woodstock Ford is back with another 2020 Ford Explorer review, this time pitting it against the 2020 Kia Telluride, a relative newcomer on the SUV scene. The Ford Explorer could be considered a veteran of the SUV market and is still able to hold its own when up against the competition.

The 2020 Ford Explorer

For 2020, the Ford Explorer has managed to pull off a complete redesign while also combining all of the best elements of each Explorer that came before it into one modern package. It has returned to the rear-wheel drive layout while still managing to maintain the unibody construction and familiar styling cues of the past. What does this mean for you? Better handling and balance, for one thing, as well as towing stability and powertrain selection. You’re able to select a smooth and sturdy 10-speed automatic to go with the standard 2.3 L EcoBoost engine, for example. You’ll also notice that the interior has more room, more cargo space, and more tech and driver assistance features than previous editions. It also comes with new Hybrid and high-performance ST versions. To sum it up neatly, the 2020 Ford Explorer rides, handles, and accommodates passengers far better than any Ford Explorer that came before it.

The relevant stats for the Explorer models are as follows:

TrimMSRPFuel Efficiency (L / 100 km)
XLT$45,19911.6 city, 8.7 hwy
Limited$52,19911.6 city, 8.7 hwy
ST$59,09913.3 city, 9.8 hwy
Platinum$64,59913.3 city, 9.8 hwy

The 2020 Kia Telluride

Admittedly, the 2020 Kia Telluride has a starting price just a touch lower than the Explorer, but we won’t dwell on that fact. This is an 8-seat SUV that is loaded with advanced technology and geared more towards the family vehicle segment. Under the hood lies a 3.8 L V6 with 291 horsepower and a towing capacity of up to 2,268 kg. It is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission to deliver the power and handling you need to navigate everyday life. Activate Drive/Terrain Mode to easily take on mud, snow, rain, or any other road condition you may encounter with confidence thanks to integrated All-Wheel Drive. There are 4 different drive modes to ensure you’re always in control that include Smart, Eco, Sport, and Comfort. Enjoy the convenience of the Telluride’s available Heads-Up Display to put relevant driving data onto your windshield such as speed, navigation, and incoming phone calls. This allows you to stay focused on the road and still get the information you need.

Here are the models and basic information for the Telluride:
