As the program’s annual Title Sponsor, Kia Motors has successfully leveraged the program to promote their new vehicle releases over the past five years and most recently with their eight-passenger Telluride SUV ahead of the production release. For 2020, the Kia Telluride Supper Suite will bring a fleet of chauffeur driven all-wheel drive Tellurides to Park City to shuttle the A-list Hollywood community to and from busy film premiere and publicity schedules. “The 2020 Kia Telluride is our best vehicle yet to handle the high altitudes and snow-filled streets of Park City and it makes perfect sense to showcase Telluride’s big, bold and boxy looks and ultra-comfortable interior,” explains James Bell, Kia’s Director of Corporate Communications & Social. “For the Telluride to be the first sport-utility vehicle to win the ‘Triple Crown’ of the auto industry’s most prestigious accolades: 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year from North American Car of the Year; MotorTrendSUV of the Year; and a Car and Driver10 Best is a historic achievement and yet another validation of Kia’s commitment to building world-class vehicles,” said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America.
