As you'd expect, it looks brilliant.
Kia is enjoying a remarkable level of success with its new EV6, an electric car that has been in serious demand. It's good to see that new EVs are doing well, but some of Kia's more traditional offerings are also rather popular. One such vehicle is Kia's Telluride, one of the best-looking SUVs on the market. Not only is it a looker, but it is also one of the best eight-seaters out there, so we've been eager to hear more about the 2022 version. A couple of days ago, we got some leaked images and info on it, but those don't matter anymore as the latest Kia Telluride has just been revealed.
As you'd expect, the latest model features Kia's new logo on the grille, which is also slightly redesigned as are the rear emblems. Inside, the Telluride is now fitted with the larger 10.25-inch navigation display across the board, instead of sticking with the old eight-inch display on lesser models. Formerly, this larger screen was only available from the EX trim up. Other updates to the LX and S trims include the addition of fully automatic climate control, highway driving assist, and on all trims, navigation-based Smart Cruise Control-Curve. As before, a 3.8-liter V6 engine is fitted, producing 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
As for pricing, the base LX with FWD increases by $600 to $32,790, while the S starts at $35,290, up from $34,590 for the 2021 model. The EX costs $200 more than before at $37,790 while the SX gets the same increase and now costs at least $42,690. Each model is once again available with AWD for $2,000 extra, while the SX-P top-tier trim is the priciest of the bunch at a base MSRP of $46,890. The pricing increases are minor and the new Telluride looks fantastic. Let's just hope it isn't subject to ridiculous markups again.
