There's no doubting the fact that SUVs are hot right now. Drivers all around Grand Rapids and Kentwood, MI, are trading in their sedans, vans, and trucks for a chance at this incredibly popular vehicle segment. Given the fact that there is so much competition in this market, it's all the more impressive that the all-new Kia Telluride has managed to take home the prestigious award for SUV of the Year for 2020 from MotorTrend.

It's not every day that we get to welcome a brand new vehicle to the automotive industry, and it's even rarer that new vehicles manage to take over their segment with such dominance within the first year. However, that's exactly what the 2020 Kia Telluride has accomplished.

How Did the Telluride Take Over its Segment This Quickly?

Naturally, it's important to point to the factors that escalated the value and popularity of this vehicle. Simply put, the Telluride checks all the boxes required for an elite-level family vehicle right off the bat. Large cargo hold that can accommodate future growth? Check. Loads of standard safety features to give drivers absolute peace of mind? Check. How about satisfying performance that doesn't make you feel like you've compromised the fun of driving for practicality's sake? Absolutely.

Every trim level of the Telluride feels substantial, yet also retains the sense of feeling like a true upgrade from one to the next. Under the hood, the Telluride comes standard with a 3.8-liter V6 engine that is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain gets an easy 291 horsepower alongside a driver-friendly fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Performance can be further customized with its four distinct drive modes, Eco, Sport, Comfort, and Smart.
