The 2017 Kia Telluride is at the moment nothing more than a concept car. There is no news as of yet of it hitting the SUV markets. Its design at the moment is new and eye-catching, as you would expect. The exterior and interior design are as modern as they could come, and everything else would surely give the competition something to think about. Something about the Kia Telluride concept is a lot like other popular full-size SUV varieties, yet something about it also seems very unique. Perhaps it is that the company is opting once again to build a full-size SUV. The Kia fans will enjoy this one once Kia decides to put it into production.
2017 Kia Telluride – Exterior and Interior Design
The 2017 Kia Telluride may just be able to compete with other brands of SUV in the market. The exterior is fresh and attractive—very contemporary indeed. There are quite a few similarities between the 2017 Telluride and various other brands, though Kia is adamant that the Telluride is an SUV rather than a crossover. The 2017 Kia Telluride is based on the Kia Sorento—it’s actually the Sorento’s big sister; 4.7 inches wider, 4.4 inches taller, and 9.5 inches longer. The headlights are LED, allowing for some very intense light. The tires at the front and back are wider (22 inches) with nice heavy bumpers and an enormous grille.
The 2017 Kia Telluride combines several different elements of the latest technology and vehicle interior hardware and software components. The Kia Telluride 2017 has a spectacular cabin. The second row of seats only takes two passengers, which seems like a complete waste of space. The third row is hidden away somewhere and even after you manage to find it, you will only be able to put your handbag in there. Honestly, a lot of interior space has been wasted in this car. Still, assuming yours is a small family of two or three, this vehicle provides not only a good look and comfortable sitting but an overly complicated environment with various gadgets that need not be in a car. But it’s not so bad in the car. There is some contemporary technology in here that will interest the driver and passengers, who will be kept awake by a “pattern of therapeutic light” (as Kia puts it). Also, there are a few components of this car that were made via 3D printing. This truly is a car for the future.
2017 Kia Telluride – Engine and Performance
The Telluride comes with a plug-in hybrid engine. This engine is a 3.5-litre direct injection V6 that can produce up to 270 hp. The electric motor can produce 130 hp. Both these engines together allow for excellent driving performance, road mileage, and overall productivity. The 2017 Kia Telluride will do 30 miles to the gallon on a highway, Kia says, but failed to elaborate further on any more performance details.
2017 Kia Telluride – Price and Release Date
As mentioned above, the 2017 Telluride is still a concept car. There does not seem to be a plan to put it into production yet but never say never. The Kia will more likely than not follow through.
