History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Kia Telluride page on 19 August 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Kia Telluride is a mid-size crossover SUV, built by Kia Motors. Originally introduced as a concept car in 2016, the vehicle debuted in the spring of 2019 as a 2020 model. It is named after the town of Telluride, Colorado. In 2020, the Telluride was honored to become the 2020 World Car of the Year.

The production version of the Kia Telluride was launched at the 2019 North American International Auto Show. The first public debut was a customized version inspired by fashion designer Brandon Maxwell's Texas-inspired collection, at New York Fashion Week in September 2018. The overall design is similar to the 2016 concept except for the front end which was completely redesigned. The production model utilizes a larger 3.8L V6 and eschews the hybrid powertrain. Its width, height and wheelbase have been noticeably decreased when compared to the concept model.

The Telluride shares some components and specifications with its corporate cousin, the Hyundai Palisade, including its engine, transmission, and wheelbase.

With the Telluride, Kia hopes to take on its fellow American-built rivals, the Chevrolet Traverse, the Volkswagen Atlas, the Honda Pilot and the sixth-generation Ford Explorer in the mid-size 3-row crossover SUV segment.
