South Trail Kia
Even by the high standards of Kia family SUVs, the Telluride is a premium vehicle that's a league above the competition. The three-row, eight-seater model blends huge power under the hood with genuine high-end comfort in the cabin, and all available at an attractively affordable price. There are four trims available in the 2022 Kia Telluride lineup, and here are the highlights of each.
The EX trim sets a high standard for the rest of the 2022 Telluride SUV lineup to build on. The powertrain boasts a 3.8L naturally aspirated V6 engine which puts out a substantial 291 horsepower and 262lb-ft of torque, passed through an eight-speed automatic transmission to your choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. This amount of power makes the Telluride a great city and highway performer, but is also capable of off-road work ably assisted by the high ground clearance and self-levelling rear suspension.
The EX also boasts a generous amount of technology as standard, with highlights including a 10.25" multimedia screen with in-built navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the UVO Intelligence remote services system. And lastly, active safety is a high point of the entire Telluride range, with forward collision avoidance, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alerts included as standard.
The SX trim ups the comfort ante with leather seats, a dual sunroof, and a memory system for the power-adjusted drivers seat. A 360-degree camera monitoring system adds to the already comprehensive safety features, while audio devotees will appreciate the premium Harman Kardon sound system that the SX includes as standard. And lastly, the off-road ability of the SX is enhanced by upgrading the standard 18" wheels to an impressive 20" for greater stability and crawling capability.
The SX Limited trim takes the safety technology to new levels with an advanced head-up display to project essential driving information safely into the driver's line of sight. A driver attention monitoring system is also included, along with a blind spot viewing camera integrated into the instrument cluster.
Interior comfort is also enhanced by heated and cooled second-row seats, with the option of captain's chairs available throughout the cabin. The SX Limited trim also adds an intercom system for easy communication with third-row passengers, and a wireless device pad for convenient charging on the move. And lastly, LED taillights are added to increase the Kia SUV's visibility to other road users.
The SX Limited Nightsky edition includes all the advanced technology and comforts of the regular SX Limited trim but gives the exterior a dark and moody makeover. The 20" alloy wheels are given a matt black finish, matched by black roof rails, front grille, skid plates, and door and bumper garnishes.
