The 2023 Kia Telluride has undergone many changes, including a new touchscreen display and the design seems to be in line with the 2016 concept.
Kia has released two teasers of the updated Telluride three-row SUV. This marks the first major update for the flagship SUV, although it has already seen a slight modification, and it comes with various changes inside and out to extend the lifespan of existing generation models.
The NYIAS (New York International Auto Show) will make its worldwide debut on April 13, 2022, before the 2023 Kia Telluride enters the international market. The facelifted version will be offered with a more rigid X-Pro variant and will also have lots of new technology and equipment.
The three-row SUV will be accompanied by its sibling, the updated Hyundai Palisade from Big Apple. Although the extrinsic model has several similarities with the character line and basic silhouette and large greenhouse, the front fascia has undergone the same changes as the 2016 telluride concept.
Consistent with the concept, the 2023 Telluride has received a modified grille section and the interior appears to hold the handles of the central tunnel, an all-digital instrument console with a widescreen infotainment system like the EV6 and a four-spoke steering wheel. And less use of physical buttons enhances the upmarket nature. It will also have high off-roading capabilities.
Facelifted Kia Telluride will continue to be offered in seven- and eight-seater configurations and will have an all-wheel-drive layout with top-end trims. The existing 3.8-liter V6 engine that is developing around 295 PS will probably carry more when even a hybrid powertrain cannot be blown out of the equation.
The 2023 Kia Telluride X-Pro variant may feature a darker-themed exterior and larger wheels, and perhaps even a touch of contrast on the inside that distinguishes itself from regular models. For India, the EV6 electric crossover based on the e-GMP platform will be launched next month while the Niro EV is expected to be launched in the near future. Carens has been well received by customers but recently it has seen a huge price increase.
