Introducing the New Kia Telluride

As seen on a recent commercial for the "Big Game,"* it can crawl through a stream (Professional driver on closed course. Stunt vehicle equipped with Snorkel) It can climb mountains, well, okay, it can climb moderate sized hills. But without question, it can carry up to eight passengers and go further than ever before. That's the latest Kia SUV.

BREAKING: MotorTrend Magazine names the Kia Telluride as MotorTrend SUV of the Year! This is one of the most prestigious awards an SUV can receive in the auto industry and highlights the complete package the Telluride offers: style, performance, utility, spaciousness, quality, and affordability!

The Telluride is the biggest of the bunch, the flagship of the brand and the head honcho of the Kia stable. Showing that Kia is taking things to the next level, the Telluride is the latest to come from the still upstart brand from South Korea. Except this one is almost all American. Yes, you read that right.

The Telluride is a new kind of Kia. It's totally new in the sense it was slated for production by executives here in America. It was penned by brand designers at the company's Design Center in Irvine, California. Once approved, it was constructed by American workers at the Kia Motors plant in West Point, Georgia. A success story unto itself, West Point was a town that was near extinction when the local cotton mills closed down. One day Kia Motors came to town, and the rest, they say, is history.

Inside, the Telluride's interior sets new standards for spaciousness and luxury. Starting with an iPad-rivaling 10.25-inch display, to ventilated nappa leather seating and aluminum-look trim, this biggest Kia offers a premium look that breaks new ground for the brand. Luxurious inside and out, it can accommodate three passengers in the third row with a reclining feature for those occupants in the "way-back" to grab a few winks, if needed.

Kia Telluride Off-Roading

Kia Telluride - It's what's under the hood that counts.

Cutting through with Kia's Tiger Nose Grille, the new Kia Telluride is ready to take on the competition. LED headlights shine their way up the road ahead, and brushed metal trim at front and sides give a premium appearance to this new state-of-the-art SUV. Stylized skid plates under the front bumper, along with side rocker panels show that this Telluride is here to stay.

Designed with a traditional two-box design, viewers will first notice the long expanse of hood, the wide grille, the stacked LED headlights, and upright greenhouse which lends to the spacious feel of the Telluride's cabin. At back, available LED taillights, which are standard on EX and SX trim levels, team up with "below-bumper" twin exhaust tips that allude to the Telluride's off-roading capabilities.

Telluride - Motivating Factors.

The Kia Telluride gets its motivation from a singular engine choice, a 3.8-liter Atkinson Cycle LAMBDA II V6 GDI engine, making 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The engine is teamed up to an 8-speed automatic transmission to transmit power to the front wheel drive, or available all-wheel-drive system, or to Kia's optional active-on-demand four-wheel-drive system. The on-demand 4WD kit enhances Telluride's capability by sending torque to the front or rear wheels depending on sensor and driver inputs. The entire Telluride rides on a four-wheel independent suspension, with available self-leveling rear feature on EX and SX to help equalize the ride on a fully-loaded Telluride.

The available on-demand four-wheel-drive system will provide positive torque regardless of road conditions. While in standard Eco and Smart modes, it will send up to 100 percent of the torque to the front wheels, while Snow and Comfort modes comprise a variable 80:20 split. Finally, Sport mode will continually vary the power with a 65:35 front and rear bias, while Lock mode sends equal amounts to all four wheels. It is all just the thing for towing up to 5,000 pounds on this Kia's available trailer hitch.
Kia Telluride Lineup

Luxury and Technology in one package.

An SUV that can back up its good looks. In addition to its tough looks, the Kia Telluride is loaded with new assists and technology to offer occupant safety and minimize fatigue from long-distance driving at the same time. These features include Lane Following Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist, Blind Spot Collision Warning Assist, Safe Exit Assist, Highway Driving Assist, Driver Talk, Quiet Mode and Rear Occupant Alert.

While Kia places prime importance on safety, it's not all that the Telluride boasts of.

A stellar audio experience is at the forefront with the premium audio found in the Telluride. Pumping out the jams is a 630-watt 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system with Clari-Fi software to re-establish the delicate sound lost as a result of digital recording technology. We have experienced it and enjoy the newfound details that appear in our music. An available 10.25-inch color touchscreen with rearview monitor and parking guidance is here, looking almost as large as a 50-inch 4K monitor at your local membership warehouse (we kid). Finally, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless smartphone charging and six USB charging ports round out the plug-in capabilities of your new Kia Telluride.
