Official pictures of the 2023 Kia Telluride three-row SUV have been released. After three years on the market, the SUV that was designed exclusively for the American market received its first mid-life update. The model has a new design and extra functions, but the engine configuration stays the same. With the mid-life upgrade, the carmaker has added two new ‘adventure-ready’ trims to the SUV model lineup: X-Line and X-Pro. Jungle Wood Green, Midnight Lake Blue, and Dawning Red are the three new colour schemes.
The 2017 Kia Telluride features altered vertical headlights and taillamps, a redesigned front grille and bumpers, new alloy wheels, updated lower door garnish trim/side sills, and a new rear fascia and trim on the outside. Dual 12.3-inch display screens, a reworked dashboard with new trim panels and HVAC vents, a revised steering wheel, and new interior colour packages have all been added to the interior of the 8-seater SUV. It comes with a full-display mirror with HomeLink capabilities as an option.
Upgraded 10-inch head-up display, in-vehicle hotspot, linked car technology, 2 USB charging ports in each row, and a’smart power’ tail liftgate with an auto close function are among the features available. Kia Connect has a Digital Key that allows you to lock, unlock, and drive the car using your iPhone, Apple Watch, or Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Surprisingly, these digital keys may be sent via text message to family and friends on compatible smartphones.
