2023 Telluride

Three years after bursting onto the scene as one of the most in-demand and award-winning three-row eight-passenger SUVs in the U.S, the Kia Telluride returns for 2023!

The new Telluride features a collection of enhancements that built upon the success of the original. The Telluride is big, capable, powerful, and ready for adventures of all kinds.

The SUV that swept the “triple crown” of automotive accolades and claimed the most recent award for best resale value from JD Power now wears new design elements inside and out and brings an expanded list of safety technology for greater peace of mind.

With class-leading passenger room, the Telluride arrives with two all-new trim levels for 2023: X-Line and X-Pro. These iterations exude a more rugged personality with features and capabilities that allow the Telluride to venture off the beaten path and explore new realms of wilderness.
