The Kia Telluride is a Game Changer

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019


The all-new 2020 Kia Telluride SUV has been winning awards and making headlines in automotive journalism since its release. Earlier this month, the Kia got some street cred in Texas during the TAWA Auto Roundup with the Kia Telluride. Just last week, the Kia Telluride won awards during the 2019 Northwest Automotive Press Association annual Mudfest. It would seem May is the month for the Telluride because the new SUV has received its third best-in-show award from the Texas Motor Press Association, during the first-ever Texas Off-Road Invitational. It won’t take long for people to forget what makes the 2020 Kia Telluride such a winner.

“Jurors were impressed by the Telluride’s off-road prowess, which rivaled that of traditionally rough-and-ready SUVs in muddy, steep, rocky, and sandy terrain…It also took on the challenge of driving through hub-high water with ease. For Texans, it is important to be able to easily transition from urban to suburban to ranch lifestyles, including off-roading scenarios. It’s also important that a vehicle is priced right for its abilities and build quality. The Telluride proved to Texas Motor Press Association jurors that it is the best combination of those qualities of all the vehicles tested during two days of competition.” – Eileen Falkenberg-Hull, vice president, Texas Motor Press Association.
