2020 Kia Telluride Give It Everything

Back in February of 2019 Kia launched their “Give It Everything” marketing campaign. The tagline, “Give It Everything” highlights Kia’s unstoppable spirit to try harder, work smarter, build better and sweat every detail.

Kia’s determination to work harder has just been cemented by two seperate, and equally impressive, achievements.

First, the Kia Telluride was awarded 2020 “SUV of the Year” by MotorTrend. Then, shortly after, U.S. News & World Report named Kia as the 2020 “Best SUV Brand.”


Kia’s largest vehicle ever – the Telluride – has been awarded 2020 “SUV of the Year” by MotorTrend. With its comfortable and functional interior, the Telluride stood out as a well-rounded product that meets the needs of today’s modern family, while its terrific value solidified it as a winner in the SUV segment.

The MotorTrend “SUV of the Year” award is one of the most sought-after honors by global automotive manufacturers. The award recognizes vehicles that best represent safety, efficiency, value, advancement in design, engineering excellence and performance of intended function.

MotorTrend Editor-in-Chief, Edward Loh, had the following to say about the Telluride’s achievement, “This year’s MotorTrend SUV of the Year competition was one of the most competitive we’ve ever had, which makes Kia Telluride’s win all the more significant. Telluride absolutely nails our awards criteria – it’s gorgeous, spacious, technology-laden, and offers a great ride for an astonishingly fair price. Congratulations to Kia and the Telluride team.”


Kia has been honored as the 2020 “Best SUV Brand” in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Vehicle Brand awards, knocking Honda from the #1 position it has held since 2016. The awards evaluate 35 automakers and recognize industry-wide excellence for cars, SUVs, trucks and luxury vehicles.

Kia offers a vehicle for every lifestyle, with a lineup of SUVs and crossovers offering superior quality, design, performance and practicality. Earning a Best Vehicle Brand award in the highly competitive SUV segment is an honor and a testament to Kia’s commitment to delivering exceptional vehicles that appeal to today’s buyer.

U.S. News & World Report’s executive editor, Jamie Page Deaton, had the following to say about Kia’s achievement, “Kia’s investment in all of their SUVs has paid off with a full lineup of top-notch models. No matter what size SUV you’re looking for, Kia has one that will work perfectly.”
