2023 Kia Telluride

Built for the long haul

All around rugged

With the SUV continuing its meteoric rise in popularity, competition among the different manufacturers for the 2023 model year is certainly understandable. For many years, the market was dominated by the domestic titans of the industry such as Chevy, Ford, and GMC. In the past few decades, however, overseas manufacturers have proven to be adept at designing vehicles that are fuel-efficient and have all the storage and safety that makes the SUV the ideal vehicle for the modern family. Among those that are the most coveted among shoppers is the Kia Telluride. While 2023 is still in the early goings, the praise for the vehicle has already begun to arrive.  

Upscale interior

2023 shows the Telluride getting a design update that takes it towards a more luxurious form. This includes new headlights, a new front end, and several touches to the interior that place the vehicle on par with some of the European markets. Among the features that are certain to impress, is an infotainment center that stretches past twelve inches. Included are compatible with both Android and Apple services as well as in-dash navigation. 

Go the distance

Similar to what other manufacturers have elected to do in recent years, Kia has streamlined the production of the Telluride by offering a single powertrain across all levels of trim. This consists of a V-6 that possesses a horsepower rating of 291 and the ability to generate 262 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission to ensure a smooth ride courtesy of its standard FWD. (AWD is available and recommended for customers who live in colder climates and have to battle the snow from time to time.) For those who enjoy travels that take them to the great outdoors, an available rear air suspension can make any terrain tamable, and a ground clearance of over eight inches makes road obstacles much easier to deal with. There's more good news for the trailering enthusiast-the Telluride possesses a maximum towing capacity of 5,500 lbs.

Protecting what matters

Despite being a three-row SUV with a V-6 engine, the fuel consumption of the Kia Telluride is also on the conservative side of the equation. Achieving 20 while traveling in the city and 26 on the highway, the MPG ratings are quite impressive for a gasoline-fueled vehicle. If that wasn't enough, a wide host of standard safety features across all trims provides some much-needed peace of mind for the modern family on the go. You can also find a considerable amount of peace of mind at Island Kia, where we have the Telluride waiting to go to a happy home.
