It’s no secret that SUVs and crossovers are popular right now. Here at Executive Kia we offer plenty of options, like the compact 2018 Kia Niro and the stylish 2019 Kia Sportage. Now the Kia brand is getting ready to offer one more vehicle in this class, and anyone looking for extra space should be paying close attention. The full-size 2019 Kia Telluride is almost here.
The Kia Telluride concept made its first appearance at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It’s been a while, but this model hasn’t made too many major changes since then. The exterior of the 2019 Kia Telluride sets it apart from some other Kia models, with features like a wider grille, vertical air intakes, and vertical headlights. The concept’s unique taillights have also carried over to the production model. The tailgate has received a few updates, including a new lower bumper.
There are a few things that we don’t know about the 2019 Kia Telluride though. First of all, its interior has not been unveiled just yet. We hear that it takes some inspiration from more luxurious vehicles, so expect a premium interior that won’t require you to wreck your budget. The platform underpinning this new Kia model is also a mystery. It could ride on the same platform as the Kia K900, which means that it could be powered by a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. With a total output of 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque, you know that it won’t be boring to be behind the wheel of the 2019 Kia Telluride. We can’t wait to see it for ourselves in early 2019.
