The Kia Telluride SUV is one of the largest in the three-row midsize class and great for hauling things like flat-screen TVs from the store, but this year it picked up a few for itself.
The 2023 Telluride received a mild exterior refresh with new lighting and trim, but a more substantial cabin redesign.
It replaces the traditional analog gauge cluster and tablet-style touchscreen infotainment system with a single bezel housing two widescreen digital displays, much like those seen in Kia’s other recent models.
The Telluride retains its 291hp V6 and front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive systems, but will be offered in new X-Line and X-Pro trims that add some equipment to improve their off-road capabilities.
The X-Line increases ground clearance from 8.0 inches to 8.4 inches and benefits from an improved traction control system and tow mode, as well as unique trim and 20 wheels. inches. The X-Pro adds to that standard all-terrain tires on 18-inch wheels, a 110-volt outlet in the cargo area, and an additional 500 pounds of towing capacity for a total of 5,500 pounds.
The new Telluride also offers a more advanced suite of electronic driver aids that includes lane-centering highway assist cruise control with lane-change capability; automatic speed control that uses the navigation system to react to the road ahead; and a collision avoidance system that can detect oncoming traffic while the vehicle is turning left.
