Are you searching for a midsize SUV that’s equipped with a powerful engine, the latest safety features, and versatile interior? If so, let us introduce you to the one and only 2020 Kia Telluride! We’ve even put it up against a fierce competitor, the 2019 Toyota Highlander, to show you how it stacks up and why the Kia ultimately wins. Once you’re done skimming our comparison, come down to Kia of Huntington to take the Telluride for a test spin!
Both the Telluride and Highlander come with powerful performance abilities, but the Telluride takes things up a notch. It's built with a standard 3.8L Lambda V6 engine, which spurs out 291 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, proving it will get you to work in a jiffy each morning. Unfortunately, the Highlander’s standard 2.7L 4-cylinder engine only produces 185 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, so you might be lacking the power you crave as you press down on the gas. The Telluride lets you easily attach a trailer or haul heavier items because it comes with a 5,000-lb. towing capacity1 across all of its trims. That isn’t the case with the Highlander as its standard LE trim only includes a 1,500-lb. towing capacity2. To get the 5,000-lb. towing capacity2, you’ll have to dish out some extra cash, since it’s only available on the SE and Limited trims. Finally, when you’re cruising down Route 224 in the Telluride, you’ll be able to feel each and every silky-smooth gear change thanks to its 8-speed automatic transmission. Sadly, the Highlander only comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission, so you might miss out on those flawless gear shifts while driving!
Pop open the doors and make your way inside these two stunning midsize SUVs. First, You’ll only be able to stretch out just the way you want in the Telluride, since you’ll have 61.6 inches of shoulder room and 58.9 inches of hip room in the front. You and your copilot might find yourselves a tad crammed in the Highlander because you’ll only have 59.3 inches of shoulder room and 57.2 inches of hip room in the front. When your friends or family are joining you in the Telluride, everyone will get to charge their smartphones when needed thanks to the three 12V power outlets included. Sadly, the Highlander only includes two 12V power outlets, so there will be a lot of taking turns amongst passengers. Each model also comes with a touchscreen in the center stack, but the Telluride has a standard 8-inch touchscreen while the competition from Toyota only features a 6.1-inch display, proving once again that the Telluride outshines the Highlander!
Before we wrap up, let’s look at the safety features you’ll have at your disposal in both models. When you’re backing out of a parking spot in the Telluride, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)3 will alert you of any vehicles that may be approaching your left or right side so you can exit when the coast is clear. This feature is available on the Highlander, however, only if you decide to go with a higher trim level. Another handy advancement you’ll find in the Telluride is Safe Exit Assist (SEA)4, which has detectors in the door that will notify you of any incoming traffic and potential impacts with an audible and visual warning once you have parked. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to find this feature in the Highlander on any of its trim levels. Finally, we know there’s times our attention on the road gets reduced, but in those circumstances, the Driver Attention Warning (DAW)5 feature in the Telluride to will alert you if your focus lowers. As with the previous feature, this advancement is not included on any levels of the Highlander. If it isn’t obvious, the Telluride is the total package!
We hope this comparison between the 2020 Kia Telluride vs 2019 Toyota Highlander in Huntington, NY, has shown why the Telluride crossed the finish line first! All that’s left to do is to stop by Kia of Huntington to witness all of its incredible features for yourself. See you during our sales hours!

The displayed Pre-Owned Vehicles are in limited quantities, unique, and often are one of a kind based on the specific vehicle’s options, colors and mileage. These Vehicles are offered on a first come first served basis, and subject to prior sales.
It should be understood that the displayed vehicles are a sampling of what may be available. Not every vehicle will be available continuously at all times and for every consumer, and often additional like vehicles will be available but not yet posted.
Due to the high demand for our individually selected vehicle inventory, there may be times that an individual vehicle is no longer available at the time you arrive at the Dealership. This is due to a time delay between posting the vehicle, its actual sale and delivery and removal from the web site. Posting, sale and delivery of all pre-owned vehicles is an evolving process. Sometimes displayed vehicles may still not be available for a variety of reasons, such as subject to prior sales, removal and transport elsewhere, awaiting title and ownership confirmation.
To better insure the specific vehicle's availability, you should contact the Dealership to confirm its present availability and location. MSRP contains base MSRP, any factory installed options, and delivery, processing and handling charges. Delivery, processing and handling fee is based on the value of the processing, handling and delivery services Kia provides, as well as Kia overall pricing structure.
Based on 2018 EPA mileage estimates, reflecting new EPA fuel economy methods beginning with 2008 models. Use for comparison purposes only. Do not compare to models before 2008. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.

1. Towing requires additional equipment. See Owner’s Manual for towing capacity, additional instructions, and warnings. Always use caution while towing.
2. Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.
3. Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) is not a substitute for proper and safe backing-up procedures. Always drive safely and use caution when backing up.
4. Safe Exit Assist (SEA) is not a substitute for one’s attention and may not detect all objects surrounding the vehicle. Always pay attention to traffic and to the area around your vehicle when exiting the vehicle.
5. Driver Attention Warning is not a substitute for safe driving and may not detect all instances of driver fatigue or inattentive driving practices. Failure to pay attention to travel conditions and vehicle operation could result in loss of vehicle control. Always drive safely and use caution.
