The Telluride offers you more ways to bring your gear and your companions along for the trip, as well as the technology to help you stay in control and out of trouble. While the safety and stability features are working non-stop behind the scenes, dynamic performance features make the drive itself as relaxed or as invigorating as you desire.
Rugged capability. That’s what we all expect from a full-size SUV. The all-new Kia Telluride is an all-access, all-weather SUV that seats up to eight in roomy luxury. It’s also smart about navigating all types of road and weather conditions. Dial into the Snow mode and upshifts will come sooner, so your wheels don’t spin out. Or get more rear-wheel kick with Sport mode. In day-to-day driving or out in the elements, the Telluride masters the terrain. If you’re ready to go big, read on.
During normal driving, the drive mode determines how power is distributed. Eco and Smart modes utilize front-wheel drive. Comfort and Snow modes deliver a portion of the drive to the rear wheels. Sport mode sends even more power to the rear wheels for spirited driving. To help maintain consistent control, AWD processors adjust torque flow to each wheel based on road conditions and driver input, including turning and braking.
Drivers will indulge themselves in the polished and controlled design of the comfortable cockpit.The horizontal arrangement of instruments and design elements, including a floating AVN screen, is clean and uncluttered. Wood-pattern trim provides a clubhouse feel, while the sculpted handles of the console hint at the heart-pounding adventures that lie ahead.
Telluride’s spacious interior seats seven or eight omfortably in three rows of reclining seats with unmatched legroom. The firm, comfortable seats are trimmed with double-stitched, quilted and extra-padded Nappa leather upholstery. A dual sunroof, with a sliding front section, brings light and fresh breezes to every seat.
offers easy access to class-leading cargo space. Seats fold flat to fit big items.
First-in-class roof-mounted rear-seat climate controls let people in the second row adjust the temperature, strength, direction, and mode of airflow that reaches them. Diffusible 360° air vents in the roof let rear passengers stop, reduce or redirect airflow.
The Telluride features six USB charging ports, with two in-seat ports available in every row.
Both rugged and welcoming, the Telluride’s interior features sturdy trim elements and brushed metal and matte-finished wood accents that provide a subtle yet tasteful contrast to the soft Nappa leather upholstery. Indirect mood lighting from under the dash trim adds a relaxed ambience after dark.
Ventilated front seats use fans, heating elements and small perforations to help the driver and front passenger get and stay comfortable. Ventilated and heated captain’s chair seats are also available for the second row, a first among SUVs in this class.
The Electronic Parking Brake features Auto Hold, operated by a button on the center console behind the gear selector. The hold feature is especially useful when waiting on a steep incline. It will prevent the vehicle from rolling back as you wait to proceed.
The Telluride gives you the power to join rushing traffic, or to escape from civilization completely and conquer rugged back roads. And it does it so efficiently that you can go a long way between refueling stops. There’s even enough power to pull a boat trailer with confidence, so adventures can continue from the water’s edge.
Advanced engineered helps keep the ride smooth and the driver confident. Four-wheel independent suspension, with multiple shock-reduction dampers and vertical rear shock absorbers, help isolate the quite cabin from bumps and vibrations. An exceptionally rigid body, paired with agile, responsive steering, helps make the Telluride nimble to maneuver. And as problems pop up out in the real world, the ADAS and stability control processors help eliminate them in real time.
Above the center console, the 10.25˝ high-resolution display presents data for navigation, audio, rear view monitor and parking guidance. The customizable screen can be split into two views at once, and you can pinch zoom in and out on maps.
The Harman Kardon premium sound system transforms a ride in the spacious Telluride cabin into an auditory adventure. Its external amplifier drives 12 precisely positioned speakers, including an OCS-type subwoofer that generates bass output markedly superior to that of a conventional enclosed subwoofer.
The charging pad at the front of the center console allows you to charge a compatible mobile phone wirelessly. An audible alert lets you know if you’ve left the phone behind.
The audio system’s in-car Driver Talk intercom lets the driver speak with back-seat passengers without the need to shout or turn around. To facilitate naps or discussions in back rows, Quiet Mode switches the audio system from full-interior sound to a reduced-volume, front-seat only mode.
Telluride makes it easy to get in and out of the third row of seats. Access is particularly manageable thanks to reclining, secondrow captain’s chair seats (shown) that fold and slide forward at the push of a button. In fact, both rear seat rows fold flat, and even recline, together or split, at the touch of a button. There are also ISOFIX anchors for up to two child seats.

A center SURROUND VIEW MONITOR (SVM) offers a zoomable overhead representation of your vehicle and its surroundings.
To allow the driver to see key information while continuously watching the road, HUD projects an image on the windshield itself. Equivalent to a 9.7-inch screen, it shows vehicle speed, driving and safety alerts, and navigation cues, with LCD sharpness.
When the risk of a frontal collision is detected, the driver is warned and, if necessary, FCA with Pedestrian Detection may actually apply the brakes to help reduce or prevent damage or injury from a possible impact.
