It's more than just that, as it has many high-end features that you'll appreciate. It's an excellent choice if you're looking for a new SUV with a spacious cabin and room for your friends, family, and/or cargo. As a recent addition to our inventory, it has quickly become a popular model amongst our Fort Worth customers.

Where Does This Model Fit in the Lineup?

At our Arlington, TX dealership, we're fortunate to carry a nice variety of new Kia vehicles, including the latest Telluride models, which take their place as the largest vehicle in the Kia family. The Kia SUV collection starts with the subcompact Kia Seltos, then moves on to the slightly larger Kia Sportage, includes the comfortable and three-row Kia Sorento, and stops with this top-of-the-line, family-friendly model. While smaller than the Kia Sedona minivan size wise, the Kia Telluride has the spacious interior, seating for up to eight people, and signature SUV style that Dallas, TX drivers appreciate. Because of its size, many people have been turning their attention to the Telluride.


The Kia Telluride looks bold and rugged with a tall, athletic frame. Simultaneously, it has clean lines and a refined look, and its elegant front grille and narrow exterior lights help it stand out in a crowded market. Your new Kia Telluride could come with LED fog lights, a gray grille, and satin chrome finish roof rails.

Inside, the center console is slightly angled towards the driver to give the cabin a more cockpit-like feel. Everything has been thoughtfully laid out, and it'll seem like you're in a luxury vehicle when you're behind the wheel of a Telluride. In terms of seating, this Kia SUV can either have room for seven or eight total people. If you get the eight-passenger seating configuration, you'll have a bench in the middle row. Opting for seven-passenger seating means that Arlington, TX drivers have captain's chairs in the second row, which creates a more open feeling.


We know that one thing that really matters to our customers is technology. Every one of our Kia Telluride models has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and an eight-inch touchscreen standard, and the higher trim options have 10.25-inch touchscreens, along with wireless charging and integrated navigation. The total number of USB ports in your Telluride would either be five or six, depending on the trim that you're driving.

Comfort and sophistication are also important factors when you're shopping for a new vehicle. Most of the Telluride trims have heated front seats, with some of them having ventilated front seats. All models of the SUV have leather-wrapped steering wheels, and it's an option to get a steering wheel with a heating element. The Telluride starts out with SOFINO leatherette seats, with the higher trims getting upgraded with leather seats. Nappa leather is available if you really want to bump up the elegance in your cabin.


The Telluride is more than just a good-looking vehicle; it has brand and strength to go with its beauty. A strong and powerful SUV, it also comes with a nice towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. This is possible because of Kia's standard 3.8-liter V6 engine. It's quite capable, as it can generate 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed, electronically controlled automatic transmission. It gives you the power you need when you need it. A Sportmatic sport shifter can be used whenever you want to be in control of making transitions from gear to gear. While the four-wheel drive is standard, Irving drivers will be able to upgrade to all-wheel drive on any of the trims.


Safety is an area in which the Telluride outperforms many of its competitors. The Kia SUV has several advanced driver-assist systems. These include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assist with lane departure warning. It doesn't end there. The Telluride also has a rear cross-traffic monitoring system that can help you when you're backing out of a spot and a driver's attention warning system. All these components have been integrated into the SUV on top of several passive safety features. These include multiple airbags and three-point seatbelts in all seating positions.


There are four trims of the new Telluride. The LX is the base model, and it's followed by the S and EX. Finally, the SX is our top-of-the-line offering.

The LX attracts a lot of people to the Telluride because it's very competitively priced and comes with many great benefits. First, Haltom City drivers will appreciate that it has nearly all the safety elements that the SX has. The LX has LED daytime running lights, three 12-volt power outlets, and six speakers. With the S, you'll get several upgrades, including second-row captain's chairs, heated front seats, LED interior lighting, and a leather gearshift knob. The EX has even more upscale components, like leather seats, woodgrain interior accents, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a power-operated liftgate. Finally, the SX will impress you with its Harman Kardon 10-speaker sound system, reverse tilt-downside mirrors, LED projector-beam headlights, automatic high beams, auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink technology, and a blind-spot view monitor.
