Kia Spreads Driver Assistance Love to More 2022 Telluride Models

Kia Telluride gets 2022 refresh

  • Telluride gets navigation-based radar cruise across the board

  • 2022 brings new Kia logo sitting in a new grille


The Kia Telluride is on fire at dealers, with the automaker unable to keep up with demand up 68 percent so far this year. So are they letting it sit unchanged? Nope, it’s time for a new grill and a bigger infotainment system, and more driver aids for 2022.

Kia has a new logo, and it is applying that logo to the massive grille of the 2022 Telluride. Sitting below the bold model letters and in the center of a revised and re-coloured grille insert, it’s a good look for the nose of the three-row SUV, one that helps up its rugged credentials. At the back is the same logo, replacing the old oval, and it has been replaced on the steering wheel, the rolling wheels, and any other prominent spots.

For the 2022 Kia Telluride, the automaker has dropped the 8.0-inch touchscreen of the old LX and S models and is giving them the SX’s 10.25-inch unit as standard. With the bigger screen comes navigation on all trim levels, and Kia has thrown in automatic climate control as part of the deal.

A bigger benefit of the larger screen and the now-standard navigation is that Highway Driving Assist is also standard on all models. It comes with adaptive cruise control that now uses the navigation data to automatically slow down for curves in the road and to return to speed after.

This makes for a massive suite of standard driver assistance features, with driver attention, blind sort collision avoidance, rear cross-traffic, lane-keeping, and lane following on all 2022 Tellurides.

As for the price, the 2022 Telluride will start from $32,790. That’s just $600 more than last year. At $48,115, the SX Prestige top-spec is actually $100 cheaper than 2021. The rest of the line sees small increases with S FWD for $35,290, EX from $37,790, and SX from $42,690 with AWD adding around $2,000 to each trim.

The 2022 Kia Telluride is at dealers now.
