The 2022 Kia Telluride stands out from the crowd of 3, mid-size crossovers because to its stylish appearance, surprise level of luxury, and unbeatable price.

The opulent ute's ride is smooth, and head roll is contained, despite the 291-hp V-6's lackluster performance and poor fuel economy.

For 2022, Kia gives the Telluride its updated emblem, which is prominently displayed on the vehicle's gently spruced up front, rear tonneau cover, and steering cover.

Flashy amenities like a 12-way powered driver's seat, 20-inch wheels coated in black, a Harman Kardon radio, and front rear sunroofs, and 2nd captain's chairs are included as standard.

Every Telluride has a normally aspirated V-6 engine under the hood that produces 291 hp & 262 pound-feet of power.

At slower speeds, the large Kia didn't really feel as sensitive to throttle inputs as some of its supercharged competitors did.

According to the EPA, the front-drive model is the most economical, getting 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the interstate.

On our 75 mph highway fuel-economy route, a all Telluride we tested returned 24 mpg, which was in line with its official figure.

Regardless of how people feel about the Telluride's striking exterior, there is no denying that its inside is classy and comfy.

Eight people can sit in the second-row bench seat, or seven people can use the additional captain's chairs.

With both of its back seats folded flat, we were able to cram 35 carry-on suitcases and four carry-on bags behind its third row.
