Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the Jeep Wrangler, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Telluride, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler as you will with the Kia Telluride, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Jeep Wrangler is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Telluride. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Kia Telluride.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler is much slimmer than the Kia Telluride, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Jeep Wrangler is slightly shorter than the Kia Telluride, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler has a larger turning radius than the Kia Telluride, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Telluride is clearly the choice over the Jeep Wrangler for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Wrangler has a little less horsepower than the Kia Telluride.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Telluride.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Kia Telluride, making the Kia Telluride the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Telluride.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Wrangler is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
