Traditionally, base models are aimed at budget-conscious shoppers and prioritize a smaller starting price tag rather than the latest in tech and safety. However, the 2020 Telluride LX trim is an exception to this rule. Equipped with a competitive starting price tag for its class, the 2020 Telluride’s base trim is stacked with the latest amenities including selectable drive modes, heated side mirrors with LED turn signals, 18-inch alloy wheels, an 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, 5 USB ports throughout the cabin, leather-wrapped interior accessories, and more.

The base model is also equipped with a healthy helping of standard active safety including Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Following Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Park Distance Warning – Reverse, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Occupant Alert, Safe Exit Assist and Smart Cruise Control.

S Trim Pricing and Standard Features

Starting MSRP: $33,990

Moving up to the S trim will deliver drivers a handful of upgraded equipment including a Sportmatic™ Sports Shifter, front and rear skid plates, a power sunroof, keyless entry with push button start, second-row captain’s chairs, and heated front seats.
