Don’t expect too many changes for the 2024 Kia Telluride because the significant improvements have already taken place for the 2023 model. You should expect the 2024 model to be a carryover, delivering good performance and responsive outcome. But do expect the 2024 model to bring sine if the new technologies with a familiar style and design.
The Updated Plan
The Telluride received significant changes and updates in the 2023 model, so it’s logical not to expect more improvements for the 2024 model. Although some people say that the 2024 model would still get changes for the powertrain, it’s still a speculation. There’s nothing definitive about it as the company hasn’t said anything official about it either. Hybrid power is included in the rumor, but then again, there is no confirmation just yet.
Telluride’s Upcoming Design
The 2024 Kia Telluride may retain the similar design as the 2023 model. After all, the exterior area has received fresh styles with new headlights, grille design, bumper, and others. Maybe the 2024 model would get minor updates, such as new (appearance) package or color options.
The interior may not change as well. The recent updates had brought massive screens and the latest features, so we should expect it to remain the same. Quality materials may improve, along with the features and safe driving techs.
Powertrain and Performance
As a carryover model, the Telluride would still be coming with the same powertrain. It runs on V6 unit with 3.8 liter capacity, delivering 290 hp. Despite the big construction and design, the SUV can move swiftly and responsively, thanks to this unit. The fact that it is paired up with auto 8 speed transmission is another reason why the Telluride has its impressive performance.
The base trim level would be coming with front wheel driving system while the higher trims would get all wheel. Although the Telluride isn’t exactly a punchy offride vehicle, it is highly functional for your everyday ride. Its towing ability is set around 5,000 pounds, max, which is a bit above the average. For fuel economy, it has 20 mpg for the city and 26 mpg for the highway, also an average standard for the category.
Some people are speculating about the hybrid version. It’s because Hyundai and Kia have been allegedly working together to develop new hybrid power, perfect for big models like Palisade or Telluride. It would be a four cylinder turbo unit that is said to deliver from 300 hp to 350 hp. But it’s just rumor for now because Kia hasn’t said anything about this development.
