hmm the bad ass green Lexus GX is a new exclusive top end special edition and will probably be mid to upper 60s for a car from 2003

BTW, a T6 with the polestar ECU upgrade is worth every penny. It’s like a boosted Dynamic Mode.

ORRR get that T8 and never look back.

not worth the t8... 99% of my driving is 25-40 mph in small townships or highways with cruise control set at 7 over

Funny that you are worried about Kia reliability but no mention of both Volvo nor Audi which are comically bad, unreliable cars.

the question mark was because I have no idea what the reliability is like on a telluride.

I wouldn't call the XC90 or the q7 a "comically bad" car

Ya, and during normal markets you can get them for 10% off msrp before incentives(which are also a lot higher usually). No point in paying near msrp with shitty incentives now.
there is if you need a car

I had a 15 optima and tortured the fuck out of it every time I was behind the wheel, hoping it would die so I could justify buying something new. It never did.
Kia is more reliable than Audi or Volvo. But it doesn’t have the brand prestige of Audi or Volvo, and that means something to most buyers.

brand prestige is pretty low on my list, and the telluride interior was pretty impressive

good luck finding a telluride is stock anywhere to get. its a very sought after SUV.

i'd rank it first, q7 second and volvo 3rd if i were shopping for one from your list - and I drive an Audi S6 now. The Telluride is an amazing automobile with fantastic cutting edge tech.
