2021 Kia Telluride Parked on Rocks

The Kia Telluride has been a crowd favorite in Corona ever since its introduction three years ago, and it’s easy to see why! This three-row SUV combines a spacious interior cabin with powerful performance specs and advanced technology inside and out. The newest iteration of the Kia Telluride for the 2023 model year promises to be the most exciting yet! In addition to cosmetic changes inside and outside the cabin, the 2023 Telluride adds two new trim levels and a host of next-generation technology designed to make your commute more connected and convenient than ever. The team at Riverside Kia has more information about the 2023 Kia Telluride release date, suspected starting price, specs, and features in the guide below.

 

 

2023 Kia Telluride Price & Release Date

While we don’t have exact specifics for the 2023 Kia Telluride release date, we do know that it will be sometime in Fall 2022. Just as the vehicles for the 2022 model year started to arrive toward the end of last year, we expect the 2023 model year to kick off in the next few months. If you contact our office, we can put you on the list to make sure that you’re the first to know then the 2023 Telluride hits our showroom floor.

We also don’t have a firm 2023 Kia Telluride price, but third-party experts at sources like Car and Driver and J.D. Power have made estimates based on research into previous models. Car and Driver estimates that the entry-level trim will cost around $35,000, a small and logical increase from the 2022 price of $33,390. What we do know is that Kia is introducing two brand-new trims to the Telluride lineup–the X-Line and X-Pro configurations–both designed to be more rugged and off-road-ready than previous model years. If you’re planning on taking your SUV outside of Fontana and onto the trails, this is the SUV for you!

2023 Kia Telluride Performance Specs

The 2023 Kia Telluride will be powered by a robust 3.8L V6 engine alongside a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive. The engine will generate 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Drivers who want maximum traction on and off the road can upgrade to all-wheel drive. Another way that Kia is increasing the off-road readiness of the Telluride is with four unique driving modes for different kinds of terrain: Sport, Eco, Comfort, and Smart, as well as the optional Snow mode for all-wheel drive models. The new X-Line and X-Pro models, among other modifications, will have increased ground clearance and a higher towing capacity.

2023 Kia Telluride Interior Features

Another major update to the Kia Telluride comes inside the cabin. Kia has upgraded the technology and the amenities to be more convenient and luxurious than ever. Here’s a selection of what you can expect from the 2023 Kia Telluride interior:

  • 12.3-inch panoramic infotainment display
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Digital car key
  • Second-row captain’s chairs (for seven passengers) or bench (for eight passengers)
  • Folding rear seats for maximum cargo volume
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration
  • Available 10-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system
  • Multi-device Bluetooth connectivity
  • Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant integration
