Just last week we were discussing how the 2020 Kia Telluride has won the “Triple Crown” of prestigious Automotive Awards. It’s not often that an automobile wins the kind of honor to heralded by MotorTrend, Car and Driver, and the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards. Yet, the 2020 Kia Telluride was named the 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year from North American Car of the Year (NACTOY); MotorTrend SUV of the Year; and landed on a Car and Driver 10 Best list. With all that already under its belt, we wonder if the large SUV can get any better…and it can! Coming soon to the auto market is a new trim level that makes the Kia Telluride even more luxurious than previously thought possible.

Yeah, it sounds too good to be true. The 2020 Kia Telluride already has great amenities – the high-end trim level offers features many consumers won’t find available on competitor SUVs, like second-row ventilated seats, and those SUVs cost twice as much as the Telluride.

This year, Kia introduced the Soul EV, an electric version of the car that packs all the same perks as the original and offers an environmentally-friendly option for drivers.

But why stop there when there are possibilities for so many fun versions? At the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, Kia brought a variation that many people would definitely like to see in production.

Created at Kia’s design center in Irvine, California, the Trail’ster concept is a Soul for outdoorsy types. It retains the chic presence that makes it such a popular choice for urban living but adds the ability to take things off the pavement as well.
