Expect the 2025 Kia Telluride to come with refreshed style and look. After all, Kis is said to have their own planning to make a new refreshed design. But then again, it’s said that there would be one redesigned plan happening and it’s expected for the Telluride. The details are still unclear, but it would be the first (and also the major) redesigned work happening to the Telluride since its launch in 2020.
The Updated Plan
What’s happening with the new design? Some say that it’s possibly happening to the exterior area as well as the interior cabin. Some sources even have stated that there is a possibility of new powertrain options, with four cylinder turbo or even hybrid unit being arranged. But again, the auto maker hasn’t confirmed anything and they haven’t released any official updates concerning their new 2025 Kia Telluride.
The Exterior and Interior Area
If there is going to be a redesign work for the Telluride, expect to see new fascia, wheels, and also grille. The headlights and taillights would also get some improvements. The changes won’t only take place on the front area, but the rear area as well. The sides should get smoother appearance with the sleek lines and the proportional curves. It’s too bad that details are very limited at this point, but we believe that Kia can do their best ‘trick’ for the new Telluride.
The updates will also likely take place on the inside cabin. The spacious cabin and the plush atmosphere will stay, but expect bigger screens and also more standard features to be available, like navigation (a better and improved one, naturally), wireless charging, and also USB ports among the others. It’s possible that the new Telluride will incorporate new passenger screen, but then again, nothing has been confirmed up to this point.
Powertrain and Performance
Changes won’t only be limited to the physical sector, but to the powertrain too. There is a possibility that the powertrain will also get some significant upgrades. The current Telluride is running on V6 unit with 3.8 liter capacity that generates 291 hp and also 262 Nm of torque. It comes with auto 8 speed transmission and front wheel driving system as the standard. It would be nice to see an all wheel driving system as the standard as well as other powertrain options. Rumor has it that there would be a hybrid version, but we need to wait for the company’s official announcement to be sure.
Price and Trim Levels
When it comes to pricing and trim level options, it’s hard to tell what the 2025 Kia Telluride is all about. Since information is very limited and Kia themselves haven’t said anything detailed, or sure, about their upcoming release, we can only provide the predicted price.
The starting price may start from around $39,000 up to $55,100 for the highest trim. There hasn’t been anything sure about the price details, so here’s the list about:
- LX (as the base trim) will start from around $38,000
- S, the next trim, will start from $40,000
- Followed by the EX which has a tag of $43,600
- SX, the following trim, will be coming for a tag of $47,700
- EX E-Line would be sold at around $48,000
- SX X-Line, the next model in the line, would have a tag of $52,200
- SX X-Pro is set at around $51,600
- SX Prestige is set at around $52,600
- SX Prestige X-Line is set at around $54,100
- SX Prestige X-Pro, as the highest trim, would be sold at around $55,100
Many auto enthusiasts predict that the upcoming Telluride may be coming in 2024, around fall months. But then again, this hasn’t been confirmed at all. As you may have predicted, the price tags are higher than the current models.
This midsize SUV with three row design has been designed to compete against other strong models, including Honda Pilot, Subaru Ascent, Hyundai Palisade, Ford Explorer, and Nissan Pathfinder. It’s safe to say that 2025 Kia Telluride sounds promising, but we are crossing our fingers to be sure!
