The Kia Telluride model from Korean automaker is their most recent model. This model will probably share the platform with the well known Sorento model. The new model is a full-size crossover with three rows. According to Company, the Telluride concept is anticipated to be a very popular model all over the world and to have a lot of successes in the sale. The body design will be very nice, attractive and modernistic. Also, this model will be very large, even longer, wider and taller than new Sorento (and we know how large Sorento model is). This concept was introduced this year at Detroit auto show. Kia says that we can expect it on the dealerships at the beginning of next year. In the next review, you can learn something more about the brand new Kia Telluride.
Kia Telluride – Very Attractive and Modernistic Design:
The exterior design of the Kia Telluride will be very attractive, modernistic, but in the same time very simple. One interesting thing about this SUV is that the exterior design will use some kind of retro style. Well known curvaceous styling is not the part of this model, and we must admit that the new retro design looks amazing. However, this model will keep the recognizable tiger front grille. We can expect some redesigns from the outside but nothing too much. The headlights of this model will be very well shaped and so modernistic. This model will use quad-LED headlamps as well as flat LED indicator lights. This combination of retro styling and modern exterior features gives this vehicle unique and very nice appearance. At the sides, the forthcoming model will ride on huge 22-inch aluminum wheels fitted probably with Hankook Ventus ST 275/45R22 tires for all season.
Inside the Cabin:
From the inside, the Kia Telluride model is elegantly designed and some interior parts are finished with black leather. The leather is not the only high-quality material that we can see inside and besides leather, we can also expect carbon fiber, aluminum, and some wood parts. The cabin will provide a high dose of comfort. The ride in this model will be very pleasant thanks to the excellent handling and very adjustable seats equipped with a smart sensor. Some of the other interior features will include seven-speaker Harman Kardon, cruise control, so many connectivity options, air condition and many others as well.
Kia Telluride – Powertrain Options:
The all new Kia Telluride will be powered by a 3.5-liter GDI V-6 engine with an electric motor. The only engine is capable of producing up to 270 hp and electric motor up to 130 hp. We can conclude that total max output of this model will be 400 horses. Information about the max torque are not available at the moment but as soon as we receive it, we will let you know. Our assumption is around 280 pound-feet of torque. The power from engines will be routed to all wheels. Also, the fuel consumption on the highway will be 30 mpg.
Kia Telluride – MSRP and Release Date:
This new concept from KIA Company will have a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price of around $38.000. This model makes its debut at the Detroit Auto Show this year, and its release date in the dealerships will be at the beginning of next year.
