Compare the Kia Telluride

Compare the 2022 Kia Telluride to the Hyundai Palisade, Jeep Grand Cherokee L & Ford Explorer

Napoli Kia has the best selection of new and used vehicles in the Milford, CT area. One of our top new Nissan models is the 2022 Kia Telluride. This three-row midsize SUV has the cargo space, safety features, and sure-footed handling that New Haven drivers crave. The Telluride gets stiff competition from other SUVs like the Hyundai Palisade, Jeep Grand Cherokee L, and Ford Explorer. However, when you compare all four vehicles, it's clear that the Telluride has more to offer people in Hamden than its rivals.

A Secure & Smooth Ride

The 2022 Kia Telluride has well-weighted steering and stout brakes that help it stay planted around turns. Its independent MacPherson strut-front suspension absorbs most bumps in the road for a relaxed ride. 

A Powerful Engine

The Telluride's 291-horsepower V6 engine has ample oomph for daily driving. People in Danbury who frequently pull boats or trailers will appreciate that the Telluride can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Safety Is A Top Priority

The 2022 Kia Telluride earned the highest rating of Good in all six crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Careful Fairfield drivers will appreciate that it comes standard with 14 driver assistance features.

One of the reasons you drive a midsize SUV is that it offers plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Bridgeport, CT drivers will like that the 2022 Kia Telluride has 178.1 cubic feet of total passenger volume. It holds seven to eight passengers in three rows of seats. The Telluride also has 21 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third row, 46 cubic feet with those seats down, and 87 cubic feet of cargo room with all the back seats folded. The Telluride's well-designed cabin is awash in first-rate materials, with a tasteful fit and finish.

The Hyundai Palisade also has a spacious interior, but it only has 173.3 cubic feet of passenger volume. It also has less total cargo space - at 86.4 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee only seats six people in its standard configuration, and seven if you opt for the available second-row bench seat. It only has 84.6 cubic feet of total cargo space.

The Ford Explorer can seat up to seven people, but it has just 152.7 cubic feet of passenger volume. It also has an underwhelming interior with too many hard plastics.


The 2022 Kia Telluride comes standard with a 10.25-inch touch screen infotainment system that has sharp graphics and well-organized menus. People in Branford can always find their way around in the Telluride because it comes standard with a navigation system.

The Hyundai Palisade comes with an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system. Navigation is available, but you must pay more to add it.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has an 8.4-inch standard touch screen. Navigation is optional.

The Ford Explorer comes with an 8-inch touch screen. Again, navigation is an add-on feature.
