2023 Kia Telluride Gains New Trims and a Facelift

The highly award-winning Kia Telluride SUV returns hotter than ever for 2023

  • Pricing starts at $49,995.

  • New X-Line and X-Pro trims are for adventure seekers.

The Kia Telluride turned into an extremely hot number for the Korean automaker. Shortly after its launch in 2019, demand far outstripped availability. And before Kia and wannabe buyers knew it, it had garnered more awards than any other SUV from the automaker.

For 2023, the Telluride returns with an updated front facia complete with a new LED highlight and fog lamp design, a beefier front grille, and hyper-silver emblems all around. The cabin too is upgraded. All display screens are now larger or sharper, the Telluride earns a new steering wheel, a 10-inch HUD is now available, and there’s more.
