Kia Telluride

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having difficulty with that name? For some reason I can’t believe that’s a name.  It sounds  like a Bluetooth device or something. Reminds me of the old Buick’s with dynaride on the dashboard. How did that get to production? It’s just asking for a SNL parody. I can tell you ride a Kia!

Well I guess that explains it. I haven’t heard of it. I guess it’s Kia’s Denali or Rainer but instead of trim it’s a model. 

Thanks for the clarification.

It’s a cool little town in a box canyon in Colorado. I’ve skied there a number of years ago. Apparently it’s Kia’s attempt to cash in on images of the old rugged west. I like the name, but not on a Kia.

I’ve never been to Colorado other than a airport layover. I’ll have to check it out.

Don't; as soon as you visit you'll be thinking about how to move there.

So it's a Canyon in Colorado and the name DIDN'T go on a pickup.

You are correct.

Besides the name, this thing is really growing on me. I wasn’t a fan at first but the more I see it, the more I like it. Too bad it’s a Kia.

Telluride is also in an area well known for off-road trips in the San Juan Mountains, Alpine like country.  That might be one of the reasons for the pick too.

pricing released, just under $32k for the entry model which come with quite a few standard features.

Which will still have another $5k discount on the hood.

Saw a few ads for this during primetime last night... They were well executed. I think this will do okay.
