The 2022 Kia Telluride is the best Kia SUV

The 2022 Kia Telluride wins pretty much every award it’s eligible for. It’s a family-friendly SUV and pretty affordable. Its price starts at $32,790 for the base model, the LX. The 2022 Kia Telluride LX has a 3.8-liter V6 engine that makes 291-hp and can tow up to 5,000 pounds. The LX can also seat up to eight passengers and has a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a push-button as well as remote start. It also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

Kia’s 2022 EV6 is a stellar electric SUV

The 2022 Kia EV6 is Kia’s fully electric SUV and it’s pretty great. Its price will start at $40,900, though Kia is advertising it as $33,400. That’s because the Kia EV6 is eligible for the full $7,500 tax credit that’s available to electric cars. Of course, the vehicles which can get the tax credit – especially the full tax credit – change, so this discounted price isn’t set in stone.

The base model 2022 Kia EV6 Light comes with rear-wheel drive and a 58 kWh battery pack. This only comes with rear-wheel drive, but two higher trim levels, the Wind and the GT, can upgrade to Dual Motor e-AWD. The 2022 EV6 also comes with a 1,000 kWh charging credit to use within three years. This is equal to roughly 4,000 miles of free charging for the Light trim level.

The 2022 Kia Seltos is a superb small SUV
