    It was the 2023 Kia Telluride?
  • What were the two new models added to the nameplate?

    It was the Telluride X-Line and the Telluride X-Pro.
  • “The SUV that swept the ‘triple crown’ of automotive accolades and claimed the most recent award for best resale value from JD Power now wears new design elements inside and out and brings an expanded list of ADAS safety technology for greater peace of mind and driver confidence. With class-leading passenger room, the Telluride arrives with two all-new trim levels for 2023: X-Line and X-Pro. These iterations exude a more rugged personality with features and capabilities that allow the Telluride to venture off the beaten path and explore new realms of wilderness,” Kia said in a press release.

    The cabin of the updated Telluride SUV packs hefty updates like the curved dual 12.3-inch display screens, a redesigned dashboard with revised trim panels and HVAC vents, a redesigned steering wheel, and new interior color packages.

    During the event, the South Korean automaker also announced the addition of the new X-Line and X-Pro models of its most in-demand and award-winning three-row eight-passenger SUV, effectively expanding the nameplate’s range.

    The X-Line builds upon the standard offering and offers an added flair with a unique radiator grille design, bridge-type roof rails, body-color door handles, “X-Line” badging, and exclusive 20-inch wheels.

    Inside, the X-Line features embossed “X-Line” branding on the front seat upper backrest as well as exclusive color packages.

    Meanwhile, the X-Pro model comes with everything that the X-Line has, plus exclusive 18-inch black wheels wrapped with 18-inch all-terrain Continental tires and “X-Pro” badging.

    The cabin of the X-Pro trim comes with embossed “X-Pro” branding on the front seat upper backrest and a hand 110-volt inverter outlet located in the SUV’s cargo area.

    Kia’s flagship SUV also offers a suite of standard driver-assist and safety features including forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, and highway driving assist among others.
