2023 Kia Telluride colors
How do you improve on a vehicle that’s already at the top of its segment? Adding more color options isn’t a bad start. Kia added Dawning Red, Jungle Wood Green, and Midnight Lake Blue to the Telluride’s color options.
The 2022 model year comes in Everlasting Silver, Gravity Gray, Dark Moss, Ebony Black, Black Copper, Sangria, Glacial White Pearl, and Wolf Gray. The first three color options listed are the only colors that don’t increase the Telluride’s price.
2023 Kia Telluride changes
The 2023 Kia Telluride isn’t a complete refresh or redesign. Most changes are subtle. One of the biggest changes to the midsize SUV’s exterior is the removal of the Telluride badging on the front of the hood. Instead, the Telluride badging has moved to the rear of the vehicle.
The headlights were refreshed and no longer include the yellow rectangular lights surrounding the bulbs. The new headlights look more sophisticated. The bumper and grille are updated. The rear fascia and trim are also new.
The 2023 Kia Telluride features new wheel designs and updated side sills/ lower door garnish. Kia kept changes to a minimum and ultimately stuck with its winning formula for the Telluride.
Which Kia Telluride model year is best?
Consumer Reports recommends the 2022 Kia Telluride. It starts at $33,090. It comes with a 3.8-liter V6 engine to make 291 horsepower. It achieves 20 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway.
Edmunds praises the 2022 Kia Telluride midsize SUV for its comfy and spacious cabin, quality materials, and many standard features. The 2022 Telluride LX base model comes standard with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, SynTex seating materials, and a smart key system with push-button and remote start.
The 2022 Kia Telluride also includes standard one-touch sliding and folding second-row seats, six USB ports, and Kia Connect with Navigation. Not bad at all for a base model. The midsize SUV comes standard with several safety features like blind-spot collision avoidance, lane-keeping and lane following assist, and safe exit assist. The standard tech on the Telluride is insane.
If you’re in the market for a new midsize SUV, it’s tough to beat the 2022 Kia Telluride. That being said, the 2023 model year brings some welcome updates and slight improvements for those who are willing to wait. Its three new color options don’t hurt either. The 2023 Telluride will also be the first Telluride to offer an off-road trim. If you think the SUV is too good to be true, read about one of its greatest flaws in the next article below.
