Kia’s three-row crossover hasn’t changed a lot, and it’s better for it.
Kia showed off the Telluride as a concept in 2016 and started churning out these three-row people movers in 2020. The production version of the Telluride lost some of the wild concept design choices, but it still carries attractive styling and a solid list of features. Largely carried over from the 2021 model year, the Telluride sees some light updates. The biggest change: the logo. The latest Kia Telluride sports the new, striking Kia badge that helps set it apart from the models from last year. Kia also adds a 10.25-inch touchscreen to its media system. Under the hood, you’ll still find the 3.8-liter naturally aspirated V6 that sends 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque through the standard eight-speed automatic transmission.
In this episode on Quick Spin, Patrick Carone hops behind the wheel of the 2022 Kia Telluride and puts it through its paces. Carone guides you around the Telluride and highlights its exterior and interior features. He also takes you along on a drive review of this Kia and shows off how it performs in real-time. Adding to the show, host Wesley Wren chats with Carone about the Kia Telluride, its price, and what it brings to the market. Closing the show, the two break down what makes this car special.
