Rountree Lincoln has put together this comparison to help drivers from Shreveport, Bossier City, and Stonewall, LA, answer that question. Give it a read!


POWER AND PERFORMANCE: LINCOLN AVIATOR VS KIA TELLURIDE

The Lincoln Aviator and the Kia Telluride are SUVs that pride themselves on their power and performance.

The Kia Telluride has one standard engine across its trims-the 3.8L V6 engine that puts out 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. You'll also have the option of standard front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive.

The Lincoln Aviator has two engine options, depending on which trim level you choose. The standard engine still outperforms the Kia Telluride engine when it comes to power. The twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine produces an impressive 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. You also get the choice of rear-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive.

The available engine for the Lincoln Aviator is even more robust and fuel efficient. The hybrid engine is a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 gas engine that is combined with an electric powertrain. You'll get a whopping 494 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque with this pairing.


IN-CABIN TECHNOLOGY: LINCOLN AVIATOR VS KIA TELLURIDE

Nowadays, every vehicle comes with modern technology to keep you connected and make your drives more enjoyable. The Kia Telluride and the Lincoln Aviator are no exception.

The Kia Telluride has a standard touch-screen display with its infotainment system. You can play music and use your smartphone's navigation on your infotainment system, with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.

The Lincoln Aviator takes the standard infotainment system in its base model one step further than the Kia Telluride.

The infotainment system in the Lincoln Aviator has an LCD touchscreen and is powered by SYNC® 3. You'll also get standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, voice-activated navigation, and a Lincoln Connect™ embedded modem for a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection.


SAFETY AND DRIVER-ASSIST FEATURES: LINCOLN AVIATOR VS KIA TELLURIDE

The Kia Telluride and the Lincoln Aviator come standard with driver-assist and safety suites. The Kia Telluride's safety suite is called Kia Drive Wise, while Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ 1.5 is found in the Lincoln Aviator.

Both safety suites come standard with the following features:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning

  • Lane-Keeping System

The Lincoln Aviator and the Kia Telluride diverge with the Lincoln Aviator's addition of the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™.
