2020 Kia Telluride EX: ($38,135 to $44,735, depending on options)
The EX is where you’ll start to see some features you may want over the LX and S. Here, you get a 10.25-inch infotainment screen, for a start. As with the lower trims, you still get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Kia also adds a hands-free power liftgate and a heated steering wheel as optional equipment. Ventilated front seats come standard on the EX and SX, in addition to heated front seats.
The EX trim has one package on offer: the $795 towing package. That package adds self-leveling rear suspension to the Kia Telluride as well as a Class-IV towing hitch. On the lesser trim packages, the towing hitch is available (without self-leveling rear suspension) as a $475 accessory.
If you’re like the creature comforts of the EX and want to use it for towing, the EX may be the trim to aim for.
