2022 Kia Telluride keeps midsize SUV rivals on their toes

It's not really surprising the Kia Telluride—a spacious, capable, high-quality midsize SUV—has shaken things up since it arrived in 2020. A redesigned grille featuring Kia's new badging is new for 2022, and all four trim levels offer slightly enhanced equipment. The Telluride is a good choice for bigger families—it can carry as many as eight people in its three rows and still offer decent space for luggage. It's powered by a 3.8-liter V6 with 291 hp that uses an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is an option.

Kia's value-packed offering means even the entry-level LX trim comes comprehensively equipped, including features such as keyless entry and push-button start, simulated leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation, and a power-adjustable driver's seat. The S brings 20-inch alloy wheels, a standard sunroof, and a pair of captain's chairs in the second row instead of a bench. The EX teems with luxury features, including ventilated power front seats, sound-absorbing glass, and leather upholstery, and the top-of-the-line SX comes fully loaded with comfort and convenience features. 2022 adds an optional Nightfall Package available on the EX and SX that offers black-painted exterior trim and wheels. Impressively, every trim level gets Kia's full suite of standard safety features as well as an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Telluride is a very strong contender among midsize SUVs, and it's even better for 2022.
