2023 Kia Telluride X-Pro award-winning three-row eight-passenger SUVs in the U.S - Car Blog

Hodangnhan.com - Designed specifically for the U.S., Kia Telluride has been a head-turning proposition from the very start. Retaining its bold and sophisticated appearance, the Telluride undergoes some exterior restyling for a more rugged and refined look in the new model year.

        Debuting Wednesday at the New York Auto Show, the 2023 Kia Telluride adds new X-Line and X-Pro trims. The X-Line has an 0.4-inch higher ride height, resulting in very slightly improved approach and departure angles, as well as new roof rails, unique 20-inch wheels, revised traction control settings and a towing mode that alters the transmission's shift logic and incorporates trailer sway control.

        The headlights replace their orange-rectangle lighting element with twin spotlights and vertical bars, the lower fascia is reworked, and the leading edge of the hood loses its TELLURIDE lettering. The rear appearance and lower body-side molding have also been tweaked. Following the lead of the redesigned 2023 Sportage, the Telluride adds a rugged-looking X-Pro trim level and also a less intense X-Line model.

        The Telluride X-Pro offers a bit more off-road capability, thanks to its smaller 18-inch wheels and Continental all-terrain tires, in addition to the aforementioned increased ground clearance. The X-Pro also has a slightly higher tow rating: 5,500 pounds, versus 5,000 in the standard Telluride.

        The Telluride continues to use Kia's 3.8-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine with 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and buyers can choose between front- and all-wheel-drive configurations. Traffic sign recognition is now standard, as is a more robust forward-collision avoidance system that works to detect oncoming vehicles when turning left at intersections.

        The X-Line's special elements are a 0.4-inch-higher ride height, a new Tow mode, beefier roof rails, a redesigned grille, and trim-specific 20-inch wheels. The X-Pro adds a 110-volt outlet in the cargo area, swaps the 20-inch wheel for 18-inchers with all-terrain tires, and has an increased tow rating of 5500 pounds (up from 5000).

        The standard Highway Driving Assist (HDA) semi-autonomous adaptive cruise control can now be upgraded to HDA 2, which adds lane-change functionality. The standard speed-limit recognition system can automatically adjust the cruise control set speed when the speed limit changes. The forward collision avoidance system now also watches for oncoming traffic when making a left turn. Additionally, it can brake to avoid cross traffic in an intersection or brake and steer when it detects an oncoming vehicle during a two-lane pass. It's also better able to watch out for pedestrians and cyclists.

        Inside, the biggest change is the arrival of a digital instrument cluster, which merges with the larger infotainment screen (now 12.3 inches). The head-up display also is larger and can show more info. Fortunately, Kia has retained much of the center stack, which still features physical buttons to operate much of the climate control system and to quickly access major touchscreen functions. Also retained are knobs for volume, tuning, and temperature, as well as a real shift lever.

A New Level of Convenience Technology

        The 2023 Kia Telluride adds new technology features that makes ownership easier and more convenient:

Expanded ADAS Suite

As Kia's flagship SUV, the new Telluride is brimming with technology to keep occupants safe. The long list of ADAS features grows for 2023 with several new additions, including two new standard systems (ISLA, FCA-JT):

  •                 Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA): Maximum speed sign recognition that alerts driver and also limits the speed of the car depending on the settings (standard)
  •                 Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control - Curve (NSCC-C): Leverages the navigation system to lower the vehicle's speed proactively before upcoming curves in the road (available)
