While it’s still just a principle, rumors state the extremely luxurious Kia Telluride Principle, which debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, has been given the green light for production.
The 2019 Kia Telluride promises to be a cutting-edge, full-size SUV that presses technological borders without compromising luxury. Telluride is a three-row, seven-seat hybrid vehicle with a muscular, upright stance and special 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 almost flat and feature fold-away footrests for supreme convenience.
2019 Kia Telluride Design
The Telluride Concept was available in with a far different appearance than we’re utilized to from Kia. This SUV was huge at 70.9 inches tall, 79.1 inches large and 196.9 inches long, and its customized Sorento wheelbase was 121.3 inches long.
On top of being big, the Telluride boasted an upright style with a lot of bodylines to draw one’s eye from one end to the other. It likewise boasted vertical taillights, hood scoops, double exhaust, and a bigger variation of Kia’s Tiger Nose grille. Naturally, there are a few things that will not make it to the production Telluride, like the rear-hinged rear doors, however we anticipate the rest to be quite close to the concept.
2019 Kia Telluride Interior
Inside, the Telluride had much of that principle feel. One thing we expect to make the transition to production will be its seven-passenger capability that consists of two second-row captain’s chairs and a third-row bench. We also anticipate all the current 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 potent 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 huge power, this powertrain might provide up to 30 miles per gallon highway, according to Kia’s quotes. While this sounds terrific, we expect something more conventional, like maybe Kia’s turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 or the 5.0-liter V8.
2019 Kia Telluride Pricing & Release Date
There is still nothing main on the Telluride’s release, but it’ll supposedly be around for the 2019 or 2020 model year. Provided its likely positioning in the lineup, look for the production Telluride to sit practically the Sorrento in rates, which ranges from $26,890 to $47,290 (location fees included). The Telluride’s competitors could include models like the Mazda CX-9, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Dodge Durango.
