2021 Kia Telluride Overview

When Kia first announced its Telluride in 2016, people were most intrigued by the name. What exactly was Kia up to here? Almost 5 years later, we still sit here and marvel at that first mystery upon hearing the name of the Telluride. The difference between then and now is that now we know just what an amazing mid-size crossover the Telluride really is. There’s nothing else quite like it in the automotive industry. The 2021 Kia Telluride vs 2020 Kia Telluride near Detroit really shows you just how much difference a year can make. All the things you loved about the Telluride are back in full force, while all the things you didn’t know you love are making their debut this year at Glassman Kia. It’s a rich tapestry of features for the model, all of them serving Detroit Southfield Auburn Hills Clinton Township with a new reason to look forward to family road trips again.

Exterior – Kia Dealer serving Detroit MI

The larger, elaborate grille pattern of the Telluride gets a full blacked out treatment this year. The only light you’ll notice is emitted from the neat KIA logo in the center of the grille. The front fascia gets an almost cage-like appearance, too, along with body color elements that pop out against the larger LED headlamps this year. The Telluride has one of the most distinct set of headlamps in the industry. They’re part retro, part modernity, and it’s all good. Kia wanted to do something special for Telluride owners near Detroit this year, so they decided to give the exterior a ton more Satin Chrome exterior accents. When balanced against the dark and handsome grille, these elements really make a powerful fashion statement.

Interior – 2021 Kia Telluride near Detroit MI

The interior gets three things in 2021: Soft Nappa leather trimmed seating, ample technology, and a subtle change of course toward a more driver-centric design. The dash is laid out as a gift to the driver, but there’s plenty of great angle design to make sure that the passenger can also grab control of things like the touchscreen infotainment system if they need to. A new available wireless smartphone charger gives you family much more convenience as well. We all know wires are no fun at all in a vehicle, but if you need to charge up with USB cords, there’s no worries there either. There are USB ports in all three rows, so even social media teens will have plenty to keep them charged up in the third row. Perhaps the biggest technology stride in the 2021 model is the 10.25″ UVO Link touchscreen. You can grab this one or leave it behind in favor of a more budget friendly size (8-inch touchscreen). The Telluride also has one of the most accessible third rows in its class. There are available second row captain’s chairs that recline, but these seats also slide forward at the touch of a button so that your excited third row crew can board easily.

Kia Telluride Mechanical specs

All-wheel drive gets its own drive modes this year, such as snow mode, so that you can always rise to meet the challenges of the road. A 3.8L V6 engine is your muscle. Its 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque are much more dominating in 2021. Thanks to the slight tweaks to ramp up efficiency and also make your vehicle steadier on the road, the 291 horsepower really feels different in the 2021 model. You can find that out for yourself today when you test drive. The 8-speed automatic transmission is returning from the 2020 year, but you’ll feel a big difference due to the new mechanical design.

Kia offers you a “helping hand” with their Drive Wise driver assist program. You’ve always got a friend in your Telluride, and this friend is smart. The new Blind Spot View Monitor is integrated right into your digital instrument cluster so that you can always see what’s behind your vehicle. Highway Driving Assist monitors your cruising speed limits so that they can be adjusted automatically. We’re all busy people. It’s a real advantage to make sure that during long highway drives where you’re cruising, your Telluride knows when to change speeds. Rear-Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist is even more sensitive in 2021, giving you a total monitor for objects and other vehicles to your vehicles left and right diagonal path.
