Kia Telluride - Now on Sale at Napleton Kia in Elmhurst, IL!

In their biggest, boldest model to date, the new Kia Telluride crossover, the Kia brand cements their reputation for going the distance. And besides, it's always a good idea to move through life with a chip on your shoulder. 

A three-row extra-large SUV, the Telluride is based on the already large Kia Sorento, even though it bests that vehicle with seating for up to eight passengers, depending on whether you have selected a mid-row bench seat or a pair of captain chairs. More engaging to look at, the Telluride builds on its good bones and then goes further. Much further. 

Conceived in America, penned at the Kia Design Center in Irvine, California and finally built in West Point, Georgia, it's the perfect vehicle to discover your world in. In addition to rugged looks, the Telluride is loaded with new technology to enhance comfort, convenience, utility as well as the driver and passenger experience. 

The Telluride's interior sets a new standard for luxury and spaciousness. From the modern look of the perforated and ventilated Nappa leather and an iPad-rivaling 10.3-inch touchscreen display, to the aluminum-look trim, it's a premium look that breaks new ground for the Kia brand. 

Wide enough to accommodate three passengers in the third row seating area, it goes further, offering a reclining feature so that those occupants in the "way-back" can grab a few winks, if needed.

Kia Telluride Exterior: A Book by Its Cover

From the outside, the new Kia Telluride takes on the best of American manufacturers and does so in a new, bolder style with an updated take on the already clever Kia Tiger Nose grille. 

With headlights that are vaguely reminiscent of other large SUVs in the field, and brushed metal trim under the bumper and along the lower door edges, the Telluride comes off looking tough enough for most situations it is likely to encounter.

Lookers will surely notice the long hood, stacked headlights, wide grille and upright windshield that gives an "in your face" characterization that is unmistakable as the Telluride approaches. 

Conversely, they will take note of the inverted "L"-shaped LED taillights that are standard on EX and SX trim levels, along with a below-bumper skid plate with integrated twin exhaust tips that allude to the Telluride's off-roading credentials.

Telluride Performance & Capability

Power for the new Kia Telluride comes from an exclusive Atkinson Cycle LAMBDA II 3.8-liter V6 gas direct injection engine that produces 291 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. 

All of that power is delivered to the wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission to a four-wheel independent suspension (with available self-leveling rear feature on EX and SX).

The optional active on-demand all-wheel drive enhances driving performance by sending torque to the front or the rear wheels depending on road and grip conditions as well as driver inputs.

With power distribution determined by sensors, and the drive mode selected, your Telluride should provide surefootedness regardless of the road conditions. 

Eco and Smart modes deliver 100 percent of the torque to the front wheels, while Comfort and Snow modes break it up in 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 an equal amount to each of the four wheels. All that torque should come in handy as you hook up to 5,000 pounds of towing weight to the Telluride's available trailer hitch.

Born for Adventures in Luxury and Technology.

The new Kia Telluride is not just another pretty face. In addition to its tough looks, it is loaded with new technology and driver assists that help maintain safety of occupants and minimize driving fatigue at the same time. 

These include Blind Spot Collision Warning Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist, Safe Exit Assist, Highway Driving Assist, Heads Up Display, Driver Talk, Quiet Mode and Rear Occupant Alert.

As important as safety is, there's more tech inside:

An available 10.25-inch color touchscreen with rearview monitor and parking guidance feature anchors the center console area of the dashboard. It is joined by a 630-watt 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system with Clari-Fi, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless smartphone charging and six (SIX!) USB charging ports round out the connectivity aspects of this latest Kia.

Bring along a refrigerator and you will likely never feel a need to leave!
