However, the good news is that drivers can implement the convenient all-wheel drive feature for each of the four available trims, the LX, S, EX and SX.

Along with adding more control and convenience for slick or rugged terrain, as well as bad weather, the new 2020 Kia Telluride offers 4 different on-road drive modes to choose from, including Comfort, Eco, Sport and Smart.

There are slight differences in performance with the Telluride lineup when choosing between front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. For example, the new standard Telluride models offer a fuel economy rating of 20 city/26 highway/23 combined mpg. This, unfortunately, goes down slightly with all-wheel drive equipped, offering a fuel economy rating of 19 city/24 highway/21 combined mpg.
