2021 Kia Telluride
2021 Ford Explorer
|Engine||2.3-liter turbo I4|
|8||Max Seating Capacity||7|
|21 cu.-ft.||Cargo room||18.2 cu.-ft.|
With the obvious $1,000 price difference, the 2021 Kia Telluride also has a more powerful engine and a comparatively larger cabin space. As we see in the table, the Telluride can seat up to 8 people whereas the Explorer only has a maximum seating capacity of 7. Not only this, but the Telluride also has a slightly larger cargo room as compared to the 2021 Ford Explorer.
The 2021 Kia Telluride has a more attractive and sportier look- it is both boxy and yet upscale. This coupled with a rear-wheel-drive powertrain offers a very smooth and comfortable ride. While the Ford Explorer does have a slightly larger towing capacity as compared to the Telluride, it very well makes up for it with its array of safety and driver-assist features. Both the SUVs have their own suite of driver-assist features, but the Kia Telluride has more of them made standard across all trim levels. For example, features like a forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert are all standard even in the base trims of the Kia Telluride.
