NYC Drives: Unique Features That Turn The 2023 KIA Telluride Into A City Icon

The Telluride remains the crown jewel of the three-row mid-size SUV segment. The Telluride delivers a rich blend of exquisite creature comforts and borderline practicality. Coupled with its refreshed appearance for the 2023 model year, the family-friendly KIA is even more compelling than ever, and we are pretty sure your entire family will love this one. Here’s a comprehensive breakdown of the 2023 KIA Telluride lease deal’s unique features.

What’s New?

KIA has given its largest three-row SUV a series of impressive updates for the 2023 model year, including a revamped front end with a mildly restyled grille, redesigned headlamps, and a new front bumper. Most trims of the 2023 Telluride also get a digitized dashboard with dual 12.3-inch screens. The automaker has also introduced two rugged-looking models to the Telluride’s lineup: X-Line and X-Pro.

Engine and Transmission

Beneath the hood of every 2023 KIA Telluride is a 3.8-liter naturally-aspirated V-shaped six-cylinder making 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The engine sends power to the Telluride’s front wheels through a responsible eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is very much available for interested shoppers. The Telluride is known for its smooth, comfortable ride, responsive brakes, and precise steering feedback. The three-row KIA is no sports SUV, so we are not underwhelmed by its zero-to-60mph time of 6.8 seconds. The Telluride is also suited for rough Terrain adventures with its 8.4 inches of ground clearance. The big KIA can pull a maximum of 5500 pounds.

Fuel Economy

Telluride models with front-wheel drive are the most fuel-efficient, with an EPA-rated 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Upgrading to all-wheel-drive drops the figures to 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.


Inside, the mid-size three-row KIA offers three spacious rows of seats, a simple, tech-savvy dashboard, and exceptional build quality. The arrangement is so impressive that you’d easily think you are in a luxury SUV. The Telluride can accommodate eight passengers; however, opting for the optional second-row captain chairs drops the number to seven. Standard features include a 4.2-inch instrument display, a six-speaker audio system, dual-zone auto climate control and synthetic leather upholstery. Moving up the trim levels introduces fancy options like Nappa leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, a head-up display, a 10-speaker Harman Kardon system, etc.

Safety and Driver Assistance

The 2023 Telluride gets the best and most advanced safety and driver assistance features KIA’s has to offer. These features include;

  • Forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection
  • Evasive steering assist
  • Blind-spot collision warning
  • Blind-spot collision warning-parallel exit
  • Blind-spot view monitor
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane-keeping assist, etc.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
