2023 Kia Telluride

Enjoy Luxury the Right Way with the New 2023 Kia Telluride

As a relative newcomer to the market, the Kia Telluride has already gained a lot of fans. People feel drawn to it because of its size and athleticism, in addition to its modern amenities. We're proud to showcase this three-row SUV at our Amarillo Kia dealership.

Interior and Exterior

The interior of the Telluride can feel very upscale. Select trims have heated and ventilated seats in their first and second rows, and a heated steering wheel is also optional. The first two trims have a synthetic leather upholstery called SynTex, and the rest of the trims have either leather or Nappa leather seats. In the front row, both seats can be power-adjustable.

With space for up to eight passengers, the Telluride may be ideal for many drivers near Lubbock. The second-row seats can easily slide and fold forward to provide easier access to the back row. Select trims come with second-row captain's chairs, and this setup can open the cabin. Whether the SUV has room for seven or eight, its rear seats can fold to expand cargo capacity. Folding all the back seats results in 87 cubic feet of cargo space.

From the outside, the Telluride looks tough and athletic. It sits eight inches off the ground and is tall. The matte black body cladding and the available chrome accents can provide some extra design elements. Every trim offers heated side mirrors, and many models come with one or two sunroofs and smart power tailgates. With special fascia and dark metallic accents, the X-Line and X-Pro trims have more aggressive styles.


The Telluride runs on a 3.8-liter V6 engine that's capable of making 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. At least four drive modes are available for every trim, including Comfort, Eco, Sport, and Smart. If a model has all-wheel drive, it will also have a Snow mode. All-wheel drive comes standard on the X-Line, X-Pro, and SX Prestige models. It's available on the other trims, and it offers an AWD lock mode. The X-Line and X-Pro models also feature self-leveling rear suspensions, which can even out the ride on the roads and trails around Canyon. This special suspension can be especially useful when the SUV needs to carry cargo. Most trims can tow up to 5,000 pounds, and the SX Prestige X-Pro can tow an additional 500 pounds around Amarillo.

Kia Telluride Trim Levels

There are quite a few trims for customers to consider:

  • LX
  • S
  • EX
  • EX X-Line
  • SX
  • SX X-Line
  • SX X-Pro
  • SX Prestige
  • SX Prestige X-Line
  • SX Prestige X-Pro

The X-Line and X-Pro trims are newcomers for the 2023 model year. They look more rugged and have special styling to accommodate your trips around the Texas Panhandle.


If you're eager to finance or lease a new SUV, consider the tech-advanced Kia Telluride. Kia has given the Telluride an advanced infotainment package that comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, navigation, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. Other standard features include SiriusXM and a Wi-Fi hotspot. There are many ways to stay entertained when driving around town, and the multiple USB ports in every row are a great addition.


When it comes to safety, the Telluride arrives nicely equipped. It can warn drivers when it seems like forward collisions are imminent, and it can notify them when they're veering out of position or when others are crossing behind them or in their blind spots. Navigation-based smart cruise control is standard, and several trims have more advanced systems that do a great job of adjusting steering and speed. Some can even change lanes on their own.

It's not a surprise that the Telluride has done so well. It would be a great option for anyone in need of a three-row SUV from our new Kia inventory. You can contact us or stop by Kia of Amarillo to learn more.
