Interior Features

While both of these SUV models are impressive in a variety of ways, it’s easy to see why our Fort Walton Beach customers are choosing Kia Telluride over Ford Explorer. Telluride comes with a bigger engine, which translates into more power when you need it. Kia Telluride also offers optional underbody protection, while Explorer doesn’t. On the inside Telluride holds an advantage when it comes to roominess and style, making the ideal vehicle for longer trips with family or friends. When all is said and done, the new 2020 Kia Telluride is the clear winner.
