Recommended oil type for the 2020 Kia Telluride

Our Boucher Kia team has routinely praised the new 2020 Kia Telluride over the last couple months, and can you blame us? From its strong, stellar styling to cozy, relaxing seating arrangements and an ultra-powerful V6 engine under the hood, the Telluride is prime SUV for anyone. Still, just like any other model in its class, it requires the right lubricants to keep running at peak performance; so, come in with Boucher Kia today as we show you the recommended oil type for the 2020 Kia Telluride!

2020 Kia Telluride optimal oil viscosity

There’s only one engine available for the 2020 Telluride, which makes your search for oil that much easier. The Telluride’s 3.8-liter Lambda V6 requires oil with a viscosity of 5W-30 for lower temperatures, and a grade of 10W-30 in hotter weather. Our recommendation, however, is to use the former. You’ll get much greater fuel economy and performance!

Knowing this, we still want you to keep in mind that this is only a general recommendation for the Telluride. For a more accurate picture of the type of oil you should be using, be sure to consult your owner’s manual, in the section titled “Recommended lubricants and capacities.” There, you’ll be able to see each oil type’s temperature ranges and fill volumes in much greater detail.
