Here at Executive Kia, we know that SUVs and crossovers are popular right now. So it’s no surprise that the Kia brand has another model in the works that will soon join the 2018 Kia Sorento and the 2018 Kia Sportage in our lineup. While it’s still a ways off, we already know that this new Kia SUV will be big, luxurious, and powerful.
We also know the name of this new vehicle. The Kia Telluride, which will make its official debut at dealerships next year, is a new three-row SUV that’s based on a concept that was unveiled back in 2016. It keeps some of the features of that concept, which means that it looks quite different than the Kia models you’re used to seeing. It has a more muscular design, with a rectangular front grille and chrome design touches on the windows. Once this model arrives on the market, you can expect to see features like this migrate to other Kia crossovers, like the Kia Soul and the Kia Sorento.
Inside, you’ll find luxurious materials and a large dashboard with wood trim and Nappa leather. There will also be multiple trim levels to choose from, so more drivers will be able to experience this three-row Kia SUV. The Kia Telluride could be powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine that can put out around 300 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Expect to find this engine paired to a smooth and efficient eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive will also be available, so you know that this model will be ready for anything. We can’t wait to see the Kia Telluride for ourselves in 2019!
