The 2022 Kia Telluride Hotter Than Popcorn on Everyman Driver

The hot-selling Telluride, with year-on-year sales up 68 percent, maintains its bold style and adds the new Kia badging and slightly redesigned radiator grille. Inside, Kia’s award-winning SUV adds a larger 10.25-inch navigation display, fully automatic temperature control and highway driving assist to the LX and S trims, as well as Navigation Based Smart Cruise Control-Curve to all trims.

The Kia Telluride is also the fastest-selling new car right now. It averages 12.8 days on dealer lots.

“Demand has exceeded supply for the Kia Telluride since its debut in 2020, and availability has become even more limited in the wake of the microchip shortage and as the vehicle continues to achieve critical acclaim,” said Brauer. “As a result, dealers consistently sell this vehicle for well-above MSRP.”

The Kia Telluride is one of the most popular three-row SUVs on the market today. It offers an excellent overall package: style, comfort, and exceptional value. The rest of Kia’s largest and most expensive model remains unchanged and for good reason. Its standard 291-horsepower V6 provides excellent all-around performance, and the well-tuned suspension gives it a smooth ride even when loaded up with passengers and cargo. The Telluride also comes with a long list of standard safety features and an interior that looks and feels more expensive than its starting price suggests. If the Telluride’s unique styling doesn’t appeal to you, it’s worth checking out the Hyundai Palisade. Kia and Hyundai are part of the same company, so they share the same engine and suspension. The main difference is the feature content and design with the Palisade leaning toward the more conservative side.
