The SUV has become a worldwide staple in the automotive industry, and the 2022 Kia Telluride stands out from the competition with exceptional power, performance, towing capacity, and cargo space. These are the categories that an SUV either lives or dies by, and the Telluride is an overachiever in all of these categories.


A powerful engine breathes life into the 2022 Telluride, giving it the power it needs to provide you with an exciting driving experience. The Telluride’s engine is a 3.8-liter V-6 with 291 horsepower and 262 pounds-feet of torque. The Telluride uses an efficient and smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, transferring power to either a front-wheel-drive or available all-wheel-drive system. In addition, you can upgrade every trim level of the 2022 Telluride to the all-wheel-drive system.


The 2022 Telluride’s powerful engine is only the first piece of the puzzle regarding its overall performance. The Telluride has responsive handling, a smooth ride, and exceptional grip with spirited acceleration. These attributes are linked to Telluride’s front and rear independent suspension and available all-wheel-drive system. These two features work together to provide maximum stability, grip, and ride comfort, regardless of road conditions.

Even snow-covered roads are no match for the Telluride with its all-wheel-drive system locked in a power split ratio of 50:50. Though the Telluride isn’t a true off-roading vehicle, it can handle dirt roads and well-maintained trails with ease, letting you get out and explore the world around you.
