The Kia Telluride is still king of the hill

The 2022 Kia Telluride is still outselling the Sorento, and it’s definitely outselling the Sorento Hybrid. The Kia Sorento Hybrid may be a great deal for the money for small families, but millions of Americans are just not ready to go hybrid.

The Telluride had a history of excellence since it debuted. It is clinging on to the top midsize SUV position, and few competitors seem like they could actually dethrone the midsize model. The Telluride remains king of the hill because it’s affordable, well-equipped, and has a roomy cargo area.
