Even though the process has been slower, ultra-luxury SUVs are all the rage now. For instance, the Ferrari SUV was just introduced at the end of last year. The 2024 Ferrari Purosangue price is an eye-watering $400,000 or so, probably out of many budgets. So, you could get one 2024 Ferrari Purosangue or eleven 2023 Kia Telluride SUVs. Imagine all the people you could travel with if you had 11 Tellurides (77 people if you only seated seven in each sport utility vehicle).

How much does the Ferrari SUV cost?

According to Car and Driver, the 2024 Ferrari SUV is around $402,050. For that chunk of change, drivers get an insane 6.5L V12 engine capable of 715 hp and 528 pound-feet of torque. The Ferrari Purosangue has a zero to 60 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph.

Instead of using traditional methods to control body roll on the SUV, Ferrari uses an adaptive suspension system and electric motors at each corner of the vehicle to apply force to the dampers. It can also reduce the Ferrari SUV ride height by almost half an inch for hard driving situations. Basically, everything people expect from a Ferrari SUV and more.

Since $402,050 is just the entry-level cost for the 2024 Purosangue, it will likely increase with added packages, upgrades, and customizations. On the flip side, the base 2023 Kia Telluride is only $35,890. You could get 11 Telluride SUVs for the cost of one Ferrari SUV. It won’t be nearly as fun, but it is one of the best family vehicles on the market.

How many seats are in the Ferrari SUV?

The new Ferrari SUV interior has room for four passengers, actually the only sports car in the lineup to offer so much room. Getting in and out is easy, thanks to a set of rear-hinged coach-style doors. Ferrari sacrifices no style to the exterior, thanks to these sweet doors. The second-row seats are buckets, so there is no bench or middle seat. Both rows have a center console and controls.

One interesting design choice of the Ferrari SUV is the lack of a central infotainment display. While it offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Ferrari assumes that most people use phones for navigation anyway. Most controls are available on the steering wheel like you might find on a Ferrari sports car.

The 2023 Kia Telluride has room for seven passengers if you opt for the second-row captain’s chairs or eight with a bench seat. That’s double the amount the Ferrari can fit! How reasonable.

The Kia Telluride has more room, but the Purosangue wins everywhere else

If you leveled up to the 2023 Telluride SX Prestige X-Pro, it would run you $52,985. You can only get seven of those for the reasonable Ferrari SUV price of $402,000 or so.

SUV comparison

Comparing the comfortable Kia SUV to the impressive Ferrari SUV is more of a joke, but these two vehicles are actually quite similar in size. Ferrari is taking aim at the family SUV and adding ultra-lux components. If there is one family SUV to compare it to, the 2023 Kia Telluride is pretty interchangeable with that phrase.

Since the Ferrari Purosangue is a 2024 model, it should hit dealerships later this year. While the Kia Telluride might not be worried, the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan should be.
