2021 Kia Telluride Pros

The 2021 Kia Telluride gets a few new items, the Nightfall Edition Package has been added and a remote starter button is now part of the keyfob, otherwise it carries over with minimal changes.

2021 Kia Telluride Model Highlights

The Telluride is powered by a 3.8L V6 engine making 291 horsepower sending power to the front wheels via an 8-speed automatic, though all-wheel drive is also available. Though the Telluride isn't going to break any speed records, 291 horsepower is plenty to allow the vehicle to feel relatively spry around town or when merging onto the highway. And while front-wheel drive versions aren't suitable for heavy off-roading, they should still provide plenty of ground clearance for the occasional gravel road, grass field or other light-off-road situation drivers might find themselves in.

The Telluride is available in four different trims: LX, S, EX and SX. The LX represents the base trim but being the flagship SUV in Kia's lineup, it still comes nicely equipped with lots of standard features including 18-inch alloy wheels, LED Daytime running lights, heated mirrors with LED turn signals in them, an 8-inch touch screen display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity, five USB ports, rear passenger air conditioning with controls for rear seat occupants, leatherette seats and a leather wrapped steering wheel.

S models come with a slightly shinier dark metallic grille along with skidplates and more exterior chrome. Wheels on the S are 20-inches and the S model also gets a sunroof, roof rails, power adjustable front seats and a leather wrapped shift knob. At only a couple of thousand dollars more than the LX, the S model represents a sweet spot from a value perspective.

The upmarket EX offers quite a few luxury features in addition to what's available on the S. The exterior mirrors are power folding while the rear liftgate is also powered. The EX also gets LED taillights and a bigger infotainment system inside, this one measuring 10.25 inches from corner to corner. One of the standout features to come on the EX is what Kia calls Driver Talk, which allows the driver to project their voice over the rear speakers in order to be more clearly heard by rear seat occupants. However, should those occupants fall asleep, Kia also offers a Quiet Mode on the EX that will cut out all sound to the rear and limit the front speakers from getting too loud, so those in the front seat can still listen to the radio or music without disturbing those in the back. Keeping with the theme, the EX also gets dual zone climate control and sunshades for the second row. Seating surfaces are trimmed in leather on the EX.

The top of the line SX offers more of everything, including nicer front seats, a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system, park distance control and a blind spot camera, a 360-degree camera mode, a digital gauge cluster, LED projector beam headlights, LED fog lights and a panoramic dual sunroof.

Most safety equipment comes standard across the entire Telluride line including a rear blind spot collision avoidance assist, forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, a lane departure warning system, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic avoidance assist, a rearview monitor, smart cruise control and of course several airbags along with the latest and best stability control systems available to Kia.

2021 Kia Telluride Model News

The Kia Telluride competes with other three row SUV's such as the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander. The Telluride is priced extremely competitively with its main rivals. It offers fresher styling in the details while still looking more like an SUV than a crossover, despite its advanced underpinnings. Designed specifically for the United States, the Telluride is a well thought out vehicle, providing tons of small touches that add practicality, often where it's least expected. Sitting at the top of their SUV lineup, the Kia Telluride also offers a fair amount of luxury, ensuring everyone isn't just brought to their destination, but rather brought there in style and in comfort.
