REVIEW: The $47,000 Kia Telluride is perfect for buyers craving a luxurious 3-row SUV without the luxury price tag

2020 Kia Telluride. Kristen Lee/Business Insider The Telluride is Kia’s three-row SUV that competes with the Hyundai Palisade, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, and Chevrolet Traverse.
