While it’s still just a principle, rumors state the extremely luxurious Kia Telluride Idea, which debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, has been okayed for production. The 2019 Kia Telluride promises to be a cutting-edge, full-size SUV that pushes technological limits without jeopardizing high-end. Telluride is a three-row, seven-seat hybrid vehicle with a muscular, upright stance and distinct rear-hinged back entrances that open in tandem with the front doors to a 90-degree angle for ease of entry. The first 2 rows are fitted with 4 black-leather captain’s chairs, behind which sits a folding three-seat bench. The middle seats recline nearly flat and feature fold-away footrests for supreme comfort.
2019 Kia Telluride Design
The Telluride Concept came in with a far different look than we’re utilized to from Kia. This SUV was massive at 70.9 inches high, 79.1 inches broad and 196.9 inches long, and its modified Sorento wheelbase was 121.3 inches long. On top of huging, the Telluride boasted an upright design with a lot of bodylines to draw one’s eye from one end to the other. It likewise boasted vertical taillights, hood scoops, dual exhaust, and a bigger version of Kia’s Tiger Nose grille. Of course, there are a couple of things that won’t make it to the production Telluride, like the rear-hinged rear doors, but we anticipate the rest to be pretty near the concept.
2019 Kia Telluride Interior
Inside, the Telluride had much of that idea feel. Something we expect to make the shift to production will be its seven-passenger capacity that consists of two second-row captain’s chairs and a third-row bench. We likewise anticipate all the most recent technology, like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a premium audio system, heated seats, a large touchscreen, and more.
2019 Kia Telluride Engine
The Telluride Concept displayed a powerful hybrid powertrain that boasted a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and a 130-hp electrical motor with a combined 400 hp. On top of its enormous power, this powertrain could provide up to 30 miles per gallon highway, according to Kia’s price quotes. While this sounds terrific, we expect something more standard, like perhaps Kia’s turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 or the 5.0-liter V8.

There is still nothing official on the Telluride’s release, however it’ll apparently be around for the 2019 or 2020 model year. Provided its most likely positioning in the lineup, search for the production Telluride to sit practically the Sorrento in prices, which varies from $26,890 to $47,290 (destination fees included). The Telluride’s competitors could include models like the Mazda CX-9, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Dodge Durango.
