Kia provided a mild refresh for its 2022 Telluride SUV. At the top of the mid-size three-row SUV segment is the Telluride, driving into the new year with a mildly restyled grille and rear liftgate on the outside, as well as a restyled steering wheel and upgraded 10.25-inch touchscreen inside on all models. All models also now come with Kia's semi-autonomous adaptive cruise control system.
Every 2022 Kia Telluride features a naturally aspirated V6 engine that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Together, they deliver 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, providing a towing capacity up to 2,267 kg. All Canadian trim levels feature all-wheel drive (AWD) for greater traction control in all weather conditions, and 8 inches of ground clearance offers drivers a chance to see what the Telluride can do off road.
There is nothing inferior about the 2022 Kia Telluride's interior. This undeniably upscale and comfortable cabin offers excellent build quality, attractive materials, and plenty of desirable features. The centre-mounted touchscreen is the highlight of the dashboard, and every Candaian model boasts a robust infotainment system controlled by a 10.25-inch touchscreen, in addition to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a wireless phone charger..
And there is nothing uncomfortable about the 2022 Kia Telluride. Kia's largest SUV, it offers spacious seating even for those in the wayback seat. There is room for eight if the second-row bench is chosen, or there is room for seven with optional second-row captain's chairs. With ample storage throughout the cabin, the Telluride also offers plenty of cargo room behind both the second and third rows.
Kia offers the 2022 Telluride mid-size SUV in four model versions across Canada:
• EX - $46,495
• SX - $51,495
• SX Limited - $55,195
• SX Limited Nightsky - $56,195
All models of the 2022 Telluride offer great value. The entry-level EX trim is far from a bare-bones model. It features a ton of driver-assist technology, including forward collision avoidance assist, safe exit assist system, blind spot collision avoidance assist, and more.
The best value lies in the mid-level SX, which upgrades the SUV to leather seats, a 360-degree camera monitoring system, Harman Kardon premium audio system, dual sunroof, blind view monitor, and driver memory system.
