After 2 years on the market, Kia Telluride already received its first updatesby Alina Moore, on
Kia launched the Telluride SUV at the 2019 Detroit Auto show as an eight-seat competitor to the Honda Pilot and Volkswagen Atlas. It shares underpinnings with the Palisade but, despite being basked on the 2016 Telluride Concept, is shares very little with the vehicle it was based on. Being just two years old as of the time of this writing, you wouldn’t expect Kia to give the Telluride any kind of update at all, yet that’s exactly what the company has done for the 2022 model year. There isn’t a whole not of new for 2022, but Kia has made a few adjustments to bring the Telluride into scope of its competition.
The exterior has been enhanced just a bit with an updated radiator grille and new emblems. The trim level emblems and AWD emblems are darker and feature a different finish. The interior now features a new 10.25-inch infotainment display, fully automatic temperature control and highway driving assist is now available on the LX and S trims. The Telluride didn’t come with any updates under the hood, though, but the 3.8-liter V-6 is still plenty powerful with 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. There will still be four trims in total – LX,S,EX, and SX, and you can opt for FWD or AWD across the lineup. Pricing starts at $32,790 for the LX with FWD or $34,790 for the LX with AWD. The range-topping SX-P commands a starting price of $46,890.
