While it’s still simply a principle, rumors state the hugely elegant Kia Telluride Idea, which debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, has been given the green light for production. The 2019 Kia Telluride guarantees to be a cutting-edge, full-size SUV that presses technological borders without compromising high-end. Telluride is a three-row, seven-seat hybrid vehicle with a muscular, upright stance and unique rear-hinged back entrances that open in tandem with the front doors to a 90-degree angle for ease of entry. The first two 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 convenience.
2019 Kia Telluride Design
The Telluride Concept was available in with a far different appearance than we’re used to from Kia. This SUV was enormous at 70.9 inches tall, 79.1 inches wide and 196.9 inches long, and its modified Sorento wheelbase was 121.3 inches long.
On top of being big, the Telluride boasted an upright style with plenty 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. Naturally, there are a few things that won’t make it to the production Telluride, like the rear-hinged rear doors, however we anticipate the rest to be quite near 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 capacity that includes two second-row captain’s chairs and a third-row bench. We likewise anticipate all the current technology, like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a premium audio system, heated seats, a big touchscreen, and more.
2019 Kia Telluride Engine
The Telluride Concept showed off a powerful hybrid powertrain that boasted a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and a 130-hp electric motor with a combined 400 hp. On top of its massive power, this powertrain might deliver up to 30 miles per gallon highway, according to Kia’s estimates. While this sounds great, we expect something more traditional, 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 official on the Telluride’s release, however it’ll supposedly be around for the 2019 or 2020 model year. Given its likely positioning in the lineup, look for the production Telluride to sit just about the Sorrento in prices, which ranges from $26,890 to $47,290 (destination costs consisted of). The Telluride’s competitors could include models like the Mazda CX-9, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Dodge Durango.
