2022 Kia Telluride review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Kia Telluride?

The Kia Telluride is a three-row SUV with a broad-shouldered exterior design and a long list of standard equipment, including many active-safety features. There’s room for up to eight people — seven with the optional second-row captain’s chairs — and power comes from a standard 291-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive models are available. The Telluride competes with a wide range of three-row SUVs, including the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander

What’s New on the 2022 Kia Telluride?

The 2022 Telluride sports the brand’s new badge design and has an updated front grille. New standard features include a 10.25-inch multimedia system with navigation, automatic climate control and Kia’s Highway Driving Assist system.  

What Features in the 2022 Kia Telluride Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity
  • 18-inch alloy wheels

Should I Buy the 2022 Kia Telluride?

The 2022 Telluride remains a great value thanks to its lineup of comfort and safety features. Interior quality and roominess are highlights, too. We weren’t that impressed with the Telluride’s audio systems, however, and thought the standard lane-keeping system was too aggressive. Still, the Telluride is definitely worth considering if you’re shopping for a three-row SUV.

Great Ride

Went to dealership to purchase a new telluride, only to find out they are very hard to find due to high demand. My salesman searched the dealership locations to see if there was one on a lot that fits my criteria. Nope, the best they could do for me was to put some money down a one that was being built as we spoke in West Point, Georgia. That delivery was in a little more than 4 weeks away. So ordering one from the start would have been a few months for delivery. I gave them a down payment on the one being built, a 2022 Telluride S, in dark moss. That color was 3rd on my list. I got the car in less than 3 weeks and it is awesome. The comfort, the ride, the quiet cabin, the standard features, the captains seats in the second row, everything about it is the way I like my cars to be. Everyone who comes to see it, loves it. I even get stopped on the road with "Thumbs up" when it gets eyeballed. I traded a Grand Cherokee for it, and I'm glad I did.

Grinding=gear meshing noise.

Grinding gear-meshing noise in drivetrain. It started with 2000 miles intermittent, !500 now-steady noise when drive train is engaged. Filed complaint with KIA. At first they insinuated I was hearing things. They now acknowledge it but don't know what it is. Frustrated as xxxx. Another appt. on 10-31. My dealer is not great. Ready to take the hit and go back to VW Atlas.
