South Trail Kia
The Kia Telluride has long been a favourite with Canadian families, thanks to its spacious three-row cabin, great performance, and high levels of tech. The 2021 refresh of this SUV is now available at our Calgary dealership, and here are the highlights you can expect to see.
2021 KIA Telluride Inventory
A large SUV like the Telluride needs plenty of power under the hood, and the 2021 model doesn't disappoint. The standard engine is a naturally aspirated 3.8L V6, producing a hefty 291 horsepower and 262lb-ft of torque. That generous output is passed to either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, depending on the trim, via an intelligent eight-speed automatic transmission.

As you'd expect from the powertrain, the 2021 Telluride is no slouch when it comes to performance, even bearing in mind its large three-row format. An acceleration figure of 0-100kmh in just 7.1 seconds is highly respectable, while there's always plenty in reserve for highway passing.
Overall, the Kia feels confident and comfortable to drive, an impression that's heightened by the low engine noise levels in the cabin.
While the Telluride's main duties may be carrying family around urban streets, this SUV is also a surprisingly effective off-road performer. The powerful engine is backed up by optional self-levelling rear suspension, and the high chassis design gives a generous eight inches of ground clearance for traversing tough terrain. What's more, the Telluride boasts a truck-like towing capacity of up to 2,268kg, more than enough for most people's camping gear needs.
As standard, the 2021 Telluride offers an 8" infotainment touchscreen, equipped with navigation and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Higher trims up the screen size to an impressive 10.3", and also offer wireless device charging to complement the standard-issue multiple USB ports.
Across the range, audio is provided by AM/FM radio, satellite radio, MP3, and an auxiliary input, with extra sound system controls on the steering wheel and in the rear seat.
The Telluride includes all the standard safety features you'd expect from a modern family SUV, including a full suite of airbags, ABS brakes, traction control, and stability control. The 2021 model has already earned a five-star rating in crash tests by the NHTSA, while the previous 2020 model received a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS, a rating that's likely to be carried over to the new model.
The standard safety features are backed up by a comprehensive selection of active systems, with the key highlights including forward collision warnings, emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, and rear parking sensors.
Driving a Telluride doesn't need to break the bank. The entry-level EX trim gives you all-wheel drive for just $46,195, while the high-end Nightsky model comes in at an affordable $55,695.
