Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Sorento will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. In this case, the Kia Sorento will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Telluride.

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

Utility
The Kia Sorento has less seating than the Kia Telluride, making the Kia Telluride the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Kia Sorento comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Telluride.
