The new Kia Telluride in Albuquerque NM is coming soon, and we can’t wait! We might be partial to it, but we think the Telluride is the best three-row SUV on the market today. However, we’re not alone, as the Telluride has won numerous awards from different organizations since its debut in 2020. Its lush interior, smooth ride, and third row of seating that will comfortably fit adult-sized passengers help it rise above its rivals. And if that wasn’t enough, you get a ton of standard amenities and one of the best warranties around!
The 2023 model will be arriving this fall with a revised look, new features, new performance and off-road packages, and lots more technology! The latest version of Kia’s top SUV will show off bold new design elements both inside and out, along with added towing capacity, and introduces two new trims, the X-Line and X-Pro.
Keeping American drivers in mind, the 2023 Kia Telluride in Albuquerque NM was given a slight makeover that gives it a more rugged look while maintaining its sophisticated appearance that everyone loves. The vertical headlights have been redesigned and updated with LED lights, as have the taillights and the available fog lights.
A revised front bumper and grille, revamped lower door trim and side sills, new rear fascia and trim, and new wheel designs at each trim level round out the changes. You’ll also be excited to see three new paint colors: Dawning Red, Jungle Wood Green, and midnight Lake Blue.
The new X-Line is geared for off-roading. For this purpose, it has a slightly higher ride height with 8.4 inches of ground clearance, improved angles for approach and departure, and a modified traction control system for better progress over rough terrain. Families who like getting adventurous in the great outdoors will love this new model.
For even more off-road prowess, the X-Pro trim has the same revisions as the X-Line but trades its 20-inch wheels for 18-inch ones within all-terrain tires. It also adds a 110-volt power inverter to the cargo area for even more capability. This new trim also has increased its tow rating by 500 lbs, providing a maximum rating of 5,500 pounds.
How do you improve an already plush, near-luxury car interior? You add thoughtful and cutting-edge updates like seamless curved 12.3-inch panoramic touchscreens with navigation, a totally redesigned dashboard with reworked trim panels and AC/heating vents, a new steering wheel, and new cabin color packages.
A few of the other updates include an 8- or 10-inch multicolored head-up display, a standard equipped Wi-Fi hotspot that accommodates up to five devices, and two USB ports for each row of seating.
The company has added even more driver-assist tech to an already long list, making intelligent speed warning (warns driver of changing speed limits and slows the vehicle if necessary) standard and offering the option of a front-collision-avoidance system that works at intersections and straight ahead.
Boasting a quiet and upscale cabin, extensive standard features, impressive technology, a gratifying driving experience, and adult-friendly third-row seating, the Kia Telluride is sure to impress you.
