Powerful Performance

Under the hood of the new Kia Telluride is a powerful 3.8-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine delivering 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The engine pairs with an eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission and sends power to a front-wheel-drive system. If you are looking for better traction on slippery surfaces, Kia offers an optional all-wheel-drive system across the Telluride lineup.

Driving around Cary in the new Telluride is an enjoyable experience since it has four driving modes, including Comfort, Eco, Sport and Smart, that adjust the vehicle's performance to suit your needs. Moreover, it handles impressively thanks to its torque vectoring cornering control system, which detects understeer and improves stability.

The new Kia Telluride has eight inches of ground clearance to get you across rugged terrain during your off-road excursion. If you are thinking of heading for a family camping trip, you can tow up to 5,000 pounds with the new model, making it easy to bring a camper or boat along.

How Does the Kia Telluride Compare to Other Kia SUVs?

The Kia Telluride is larger than the Kia Sportage, Niro and Soul. Unlike the Kia Niro, which uses an electric powertrain, the Telluride has a gasoline powertrain featuring a V6 engine. Compared to the Kia Sorento, which also has three rows, the Kia Telluride is the more powerful option thanks to its larger 3.8-liter engine. Both utilize an eight-speed automatic transmission, but the Kia Sorento has a dual-clutch option. While the Sorento has a 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity, the Telluride can haul up to 5,000 pounds, making it the best option for large family vacations or anyone who needs plenty of power for their errands.
