Kia Telluride Performance

Performance and Capability

The Kia Telluride comes equipped with a powerful standard engine. The engine is a 3.8L Lambda V6 with a power output of 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. While front-wheel drive is standard on the Telluride, you do have the option to get available all-wheel drive instead.

With front-wheel drive, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 20 city/26 highway MPG. 1 If you choose the all-wheel drive option, you won’t sacrifice fuel economy with the EPA-estimated 19 city/24 highway MPG. 1 All-wheel drive also gives you more traction in bad weather or on more challenging terrain. You also get AWD Lock and Snow mode options for even more traction.

Interior Comforts

The Kia Telluride has enough space for everyone with eight seats. Each of these seats is covered in Sofino Synthetic Leather trim to give your Telluride a sleek and stylish look. You’ll even get a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Telluride has an available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way lumbar support to keep you comfortable while driving.

In addition to physical comforts, the Telluride has plenty of tech features that make driving even better. The Telluride comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. You even can call friends or family hands-free with the Bluetooth® Wireless Hands-Free Connectivity.

On higher-level trims, you get access to Driver Talk. If you need to chat with passengers in your second or third rows, press a button, and your voice will travel through the rear speakers so everyone can hear you.



Kia Telluride Safety

Safety and Driver-Assist Features

To keep you safe and provide peace of mind while you’re on the road, the Kia Telluride has plenty of driver-assist and safety features. Many of them fall under the Kia Drive Wise driver-assist technology suite. Some of the standard safety features include:

  • Auto Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection—If this system senses an unavoidable accident with either a pedestrian or other vehicle, the Telluride will warn you, then apply the brakes when needed.
  • Driver Attention Warning—This feature monitors your driving patterns and will alert you if it detects distracted driving and will suggest a break.
  • Lane Keeping Assist—While you’re driving, your Telluride will monitor where you are in your lane. If you begin to drift out of your lane unintentionally, your Telluride will warn you and apply corrective steering.
