With few details revealed in the cladding covering the bodywork, the Kia Telluride on first impressions comes across as a big, bold crossover. A wide signature ‘tiger grille’ can just about be seen under the wrappings along with different headlights to those seen on the concept version. Another concept feature that has not made it into the production model are the bold ‘suicide doors’ that have been replaced by a conventional look.

At the rear of the Kia Telluride the production version looks to feature skinny taillights that accentuate the model’s height. Engine options are unknown as official details are yet to be released by Kia, but a plug-in hybrid is expected to be included.  Speaking about the introduction of a Telluride to the extensive Kia new car range, president and chief designer, Peter Schreyer commented “Yeah, we are working on that car, actually.” 

First seen as a concept model at the North American International Auto Show in 2016, the Kia Telluride is based on a modified Kia Sorento chassis. Possibly set for release in 2019, Jennings Motor Group will continue to keep an eye out for further details.
