The 2022 Kia Telluride Is Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used Car of The Week!

September 26th, 2022 by


The first introduction of the Kia Telluride was hailed by critics and car lovers alike, as this was the largest SUV in the car market and was a match made in heaven for those with a passion for thrill and adventure. This mid-size crossover provides the best of many worlds as it offers a generous amount of space and interior comforts, which is exactly why it has been chosen as Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used Car of The Week!


This Kia Telluride only offers one powertrain among its four trims (LX, S, EX, and SX), but it’s the only motor you’ll need for a highly capable drive. This car drives on a 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine, which uses a naturally aspirated transmission. The output comes out to an excellent 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Using regular gasoline is fine, but it’s recommended to use a fair amount. Towing capacity also comes out to 5,000 lbs.


There are plenty of details on the outer body that is standard for each and every model. These beauty marks include heated outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators, solar control glass, sound-absorbing windshield glass, privacy glass, rear wiper/washer, automatic headlamps, and a rear spoiler. Moving past the entry-level LX, buyers can obtain a sunroof, and then a smart power liftgate on the EX and SX trim, along with sound-absorbing front window glass. Kia also rocks a new design for its logo, with the “Telluride” lettering, which is in a smaller font with its space expanded, sits on a slightly refreshed grille, rear liftgate, and steering wheel cover.


The interior of the newest Telluride is highly spacious, so much so that an average-sized adult can fit comfortably in the third row. The seats can be easily accessed, while the roof provides much head space. The seats are also very comfortable, while the materials have clean look to them.

This model year, the Driver Talk system serves as a standard feature. This may prove to be useful for parents as they can project their voice from the driver’s seat and tell their kids to stop hitting each other via the rear speakers. Then, if the precious ones are napping, the Quiet mode shuts off the rear speakers, while still allowing those upfront to listen to their favorite tunes at a low level.

Cargo space behind the third row comes out to 21 cubic feet, then expands to 46 cubes when folding down the rear seats. It can also expand to 87 cubes if the seats in the second row are also folded.


There are plenty of standard nifities to look forward to starting at the base-level EV trim, these consist of forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and safe exit assistance. 

There are also helpful convenience technologies, these encompass keyless entry/ignition, remote start, rear-occupant alert, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a simulated leather upholstery.

At last, more high-tech features are involved in the 10.25-inch infotainment display with a split-screen function. This also includes standard navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, and satellite radio.
